With its classic New England design vernacular and inviting scale, this new, 178 unit multifamily community enlivens a quiet suburban neighborhood in northern Massachusetts, just 30 minutes from Boston. Featuring a mix of market-rate and affordable apartment homes, TAT’s design for Alexan 3 North divides the property into three separate mid-rise buildings whose massing and architectural style complement the surrounding neighborhood. Arranged around a large central courtyard, the amenity-rich, 223,000-square-foot community offers a compelling residential alternative with appeal for longtime suburban residents and city dwellers alike.
Positioned closest to the adjacent neighborhood, a three-story building holds 60 residential units ranging in size from one- to three bedrooms. Across the courtyard, two four-story buildings create an exciting street presence for nearby Boston Road; their unit mix includes studio through three-bedroom homes. Serving as Alexan 3 North’s main entry and focal point, a clubhouse structure connects the two larger buildings with common amenity space. The entry lobby is punctuated with dramatic custom canted beams, a two-story stickwood wall, and contemporary focal light fixtures, the overall clubhouse space forms an inviting, communal atmosphere for Alexan 3 North residents. Features include an open lounge area containing an amenity-rich kitchen, game room with pool table, video gaming, multiple large screen tv’s, custom lounge furniture and surround sound. The central amenity space also features a conference room, multiple work pods and fully plugged central seating. Other Alexan 3 North amenities include a fitness center, bike storage, dog washing room and a pool deck with grilling stations and seating areas.
