Block 8 Named at Assembly Row, Leasing Commences
Assembly Row Block 8 has been named Miscela with leasing underway at the development with first move-ins scheduled for July 2021. The 24-story, 500-unit building is directly across from the MBTA station at 485 Foley Street, Somerville, and features apartment homes and penthouses designed for stylish and inspired living. The building is now the tallest in Somerville and puts residents at the front door of Assembly Row’s wide range of retail options, full-service and takeout dining, and entertainment venues.
“Miscela is highlighted by its outstanding interior design and tailored amenity offering, it is unlike anything else in the greater Boston area, and an ideal manifestation of the Assembly Row experience, providing a high-level of convenience, comfort and lifestyle choices,” said Mike Ennes, Senior Vice President at Federal Realty. “Our residents can easily access the thoughtful mix of retail, dining, fitness studios, and services throughout the neighborhood and beyond to the cities of both Somerville and Boston.”
Miscela’s name is inspired by the neighborhood’s heritage of manufacturing and “assembly.” Meaning “eclectic collection” in Italian, the building’s ambitious design combines a compelling array of motifs, patterns and spaces, while the neighborhood is home to a wide range of people, services and retail/restaurant destinations.
Miscela is one of the centerpieces of Assembly Row’s Phase 3 expansion, which also includes the arrival of CVS, Sephora, Warby Parker, sweetgreen and Shake Shack, along with local dining favorite Parla from Boston’s North End. At 455 Grand Union Boulevard, PUMA’s North American headquarters opens this summer as the anchor to a 13-story state-of-the-art office building. Groceries and necessities are steps away at Trader Joe’s.
Miscela includes studios, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom residences with a choice of sleek finishes and a variety of floor plans. Kitchens and baths feature quartz countertops and elegant tile work and cabinets. Large windows provide plentiful light and air, while resilient wood plank flooring throughout offers a warm vibe to each home. All apartment homes have walk-in closets; some offer Juliet balconies, larger balconies, or patios. Additionally, penthouses offer upgraded finishes, larger floorplans, and up to 12’ ceilings.
