Woburn, MA – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction manager, recently announced that it has broken ground on Station Landing Apartments, an upscale residential development located at 431 River Street in Waltham, Mass. With a project cost totaling $8.5 million, the 60,850sf community will feature 34 two-bedroom apartment homes on floors two through five and will be situated atop 9,000sf of ground-level retail and restaurant space. The development is owned by Charles River Place, LLC, and the project team includes Costa Architects and Cowen Associates.
“Waltham is quickly becoming one of suburban Boston’s most active markets not only for commercial development, but also residential projects,” commented John Tocci, chief enabling officer at Tocci Building Companies. “Much of this residential activity is located around busy Waltham Center, with easy access to numerous amenities and public transportation options. With this development, we will utilize highly efficient preconstruction solutions and accurate pricing methods to ensure a timely and cost-effective delivery for our client. Upon completion, we are confident that Station Landing will be an attractive and sought-after tenant destination in the market.”
With a goal for tenants to begin taking occupancy by September 1, 2015, Tocci utilized virtual design and construction (VDC) and building information modeling (BIM) tools to help accelerate overall construction and project delivery times. Each unit at Station Landing will contain hardwood floors and lush carpets, laundry hook-ups, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Additionally, a beautiful roof deck will be added along with a state-of-the-art gym facility.
The exterior of Station Landing will boast scalloped shingle roofing, dormers with balconies, and clapboard and stone veneer siding. With a handsome presence featuring wide-open and high-quality finishes, the project is an ideal housing option for professionals looking for a live, work, and play lifestyle just west of Boston.
431 River Street is set in the center of downtown Waltham just blocks away from popular Moody Street with numerous nearby restaurants, retail shops, and public transportation options. Additionally, the property is minutes from Route 128 and I-95, providing easy access to Metro West business centers, Downtown Boston, and Logan International Airport.
