Ground broken on 177 apartments in Sullivan Square
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday morning for 480 Rutherford Avenue, an upcoming 177-unit apartment building located in Charlestown’s Sullivan Square. 480 Rutherford Avenue will contain studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residences, 23 of which will be affordable. The LEED Platinum-certifiable 480 Rutherford Avenue will be the first residential building at Hood Park, a 20-acre development permitted for over 1.1 million square feet of new construction. “Expanding upon the success of the commercial redevelopment of Hood Park, we are excited to bring a residential component to the project,” said Chris Kaneb, manager of project developer Hood Park LLC. “It will undoubtedly bring a 24/7 vibrancy to the park, achieving our organization’s long-range vision for a complete, mixed use transformation." Completion of 480 Rutherford Avenue is anticipated in 2019. The building is located steps from the MBTA Orange Line and a short drive to Downtown Boston.
