One of the most innovative modern real estate efforts in Everett has been developed by Greystar – a national and international leader in investment, development and management of high quality rental housing and commercial properties.
Greystar’s impact is being felt in Everett, where it is building almost 2,000 units, and in neighboring Revere, along the Beach where its modern buildings have changed the face of the Beach.
Greystar doesn’t just build buildings.
It builds communities.
It also ties those new communities it builds to mass transit so its renters are provided convenient access to employment opportunities in Boston.
New residents moved into the Mason over the weekend.
The Mason is a newly constructed residential community in Everett’ Commercial Triangle District.
It was designed by CBT Architects and it blends what Greystar refers to as “natural beauty with a subtle, sophisticated industrial edge.
Greystar touts that residents will enjoy tasteful, modern amenities and dedicated work areas in a rising neighborhood with direct access to both North and South Station via the nearby Chelsea MBTA Station. Located at 101 Mill Road, Mason is home to 330 apartment units, 400 onsite parking spaces, approximately 5,000 square feet of ground floor retail, plus an array of high-end amenity uses. This includes a fully equipped fitness center and yoga studio; a resort-style courtyard pool with cabana seating, grilling stations, and a fire pit; a marketplace for artist and DYI enthusiast; a pet spa and a dog park; and more.
“We are excited to welcome the first residents to Mason, where they will enjoy highly attractive community amenities and apartments,” said Gary Kerr, Managing Director of Development at Greystar. “We are incredibly proud of this development and its role in positioning the Commercial Triangle as a great place to live, work, and play. We are greatly appreciative of our partners, the City of Everett staff, and Mayor DeMaria’s administration, in helping us open this community.”
Mason is the first community to deliver as part of Greystar’s $730 million investment in Everett. Greystar’s residential developments in the Commercial Triangle will help to usher in a new era for the district, with transit-oriented residential, retail, and pedestrian corridors. Anthem Everett will deliver 450 units while Maxwell will deliver 384 units, and 1690 Revere Beach Parkway will add an additional 741 units across two phases. Combined, these projects will also deliver more than 100 affordable units to Everett.
Greystar is making various community improvements through- out Everett’s Commercial Triangle. These include enhancing the streetscape with a new public outdoor space with multimodal connections, improved pedestrian walking paths and sidewalks. Additional contributions include $125,000 donation to the Mayor’s Everett Summer Youth Job Program (or similar City of Everett youth program), a Greystar-hosted annual career path education program, an annual Greystar Giving volunteer day in Everett, and an annual community block party fundraiser on Vale Street.
