Construction Finishes on Park 77 in Cambridge
Nauset Construction has completed Park 77, a 93-unit transit-oriented apartment community located in the Alewife neighborhood of Cambridge. Situated across from the 50-acre recreational facility Danehy Park, and within a short walking distance to Fresh Pond, the Fresh Pond Shopping Center and Alewife Station, Park 77 also sits adjacent to Park 87, the 54-unit apartment complex also developed by Acorn Holdings in 2015.
“With the close proximity to Fresh Pond, the park, the T station and the wealth of shopping and dining options, this was an ideal urban/suburban location for a family and pet-friendly apartment community,” said Phil Terzis, principal at Abodez Acorn New Street LLC, owner of Park 77. “The construction team delivered beautifully on the designer’s vision, and with the dedication of our leasing manager Ben Silva, we were able to pre-lease over 90% of the apartments before it was even completed.”
Designed by Piatt Associates, the four-story, 96,000 square foot building is a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 595 to 1,265 square feet, including 14 three-bedroom units designed for families. In addition to the convenient neighborhood recreational facilities, retail and dining options, the building offers a host of common area amenities, including a lobby lounge with a see-through gas fireplace, a terrace with built-in gas barbeque, a café with a full kitchen, a multimedia room with surround-sound, a meeting room with built-in audio-visual equipment, a top floor with a sky lounge and roof deck, a state-of-the-art fitness room, and a free dog washing and grooming station. The units feature a combination of tile and plank flooring, quartz countertops and shaker-style, white finish cabinetry.
Oversized windows provide an abundance of light to the apartments, and select units include balconies and terraces. The colorful exterior facade is a combination of board and batten siding, metal wall shingles, green and gray clapboards and stone veneer. Park 77 features underground parking with electrical charging stations, free auto vacuum and ample bicycle storage.
