Designed by Somerville-based Khalsa Design, Inc. (KDI), the units feature gray glazed birch flooring, LED fixtures, high-efficiency HVAC, and balconies or terraces for each unit.

Two common roof decks offer residents a relaxing space to entertain with spectacular views of Boston, Cambridge and beyond. The 20 one-bedroom units average 840 square feet per unit and the 35 two-bedroom units average 1,050 square feet per unit. Many of the condominiums were pre-sold prior to construction, with only six units remaining on the market at press time. "We worked diligently with KDI and Nauset to create an energy-efficient, modern statement building for East Cambridge," said Loth.
“Our familiarity with the preconstruction process in the City of Cambridge, as well as our experience working with tight urban infill sites, served us well on this project,” said Nauset President, Anthony Papantonis.
