About Avalon at Hilltop
Hilltop Steakhouse Redevelopment
855 Broadway (Route 1), Saugus, MA
Approved mixed-use redevelopment of the 14-acre former Hilltop Steakhouse site located on Route 1 in Saugus. Three new four-story residential buildings will be constructed at the site’s rear containing 280 luxury apartments. Apartments will include 16 studios, 122 one bedrooms and 142 two-bedrooms surrounding a landscaped courtyard with a pool, grills, fireplaces and dog parks. 10% of the apartments will be designated affordable.
Two new buildings featuring 24,000 square feet of retail will be constructed along Route 1. Retail will be co-developed with Crosspoint Associates and will include service-oriented businesses such as a dry cleaner, a hair salon, a coffee shop, and a pharmacy as well as both full-service and casual restaurants. The development team intends to use the property’s existing liquor license. The landmark neon Hilltop Steakhouse cactus sign, which remains on site, will be incorporated into the development.
Parking will be constructed both at grade at the front of the property and in a new parking garage at the property’s rear. Resident parking will be constructed at a 1.62 residential-unit-to-parking-space ratio.
