Everett, MA – The Batch Yard, a 328-unit luxury loft-style apartment community located at 25 Charlton Street in Everett, Mass., will be showcased in the 2015 Boston Design Week. The architecture and design festival, which ends on March 29, features more than 80 events throughout the Boston area.
The Batch Yard event, titled “An Architectural Journey of Reclamation, Reuse, and Rebirth,” will take place on Wednesday, March 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is open to the public. Guests are invited to take a free tour of the former Charleston Chew Factory and see firsthand how the visionary reuse of existing elements led to this gorgeous apartment community. Additionally, the architects, artists, and designers involved in the transformation will lead a panel discussion and Q&A session highlighting the history, reclamation process, and rebirth of the building.
“Participating in the 2015 Boston Design Week presents a great opportunity to spotlight the Batch Yard’s architectural characteristics and the use of the former Charleston Chew Factory,” commented Andy Montelli, developer and principal at Post Road Residential. “Attendees are invited to view the Batch Yard’s transformative journey from a long-dormant industrial building to the finest luxury apartment community of its kind. There is rich history in the bones of this building, and we are excited to share our story.”
Boston Design Week encourages the public to explore architectural, environmental and landscape, urban, interior, fashion, graphic and photography, product and industrial, and studio design industries, organizations, and innovations. Additionally, the festival seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of all aspects of design, foster recognition of the vital role the industry plays in our lives, and expose new audiences to a wide array of design industries and organizations.
As part of the reclamation and reuse process, The Batch Yard underwent a complete renovation, resulting in an updated and luxurious community with nods to the building’s history, such as the creative use of existing building structures matched with modern design and conveniences. Additionally, The Batch Yard features character-rich details and finishes including wood paneling and flooring that was reclaimed and remilled from the site, hand-sculpted Charleston Chew metal door handles, artwork by well-known New England artists, and a sophisticated library complete with a collection of custom cocktail shakers.
