Elan Union Market

Watertown, MA

A new 282 unit luxury apartment and mixed-use community at the corner of Arsenal and Irving streets in the thriving city of Watertown, MA. With more than 11,000 square feet of resident amenity space and structured parking for 420 cars, this development stretches 700+ feet and is designed to achieve LEED Gold and Energy Star Certification.

Elan Union Market has two buildings that are attached by an elegant, elevated glass walkway – a key defining feature of the project. The development includes an array of thoughtfully designed amenities including a modern clubhouse with a variety of social spaces, an entertainment kitchen, art gallery, yoga room, and top-of-the-line fitness equipment. The pet-friendly community offers open green space, multiple outdoor courtyards with grilling stations, a swimming pool with sun deck, as well as bicycle storage and repair stations. Shared indoor and outdoor community space includes a resident lounge with billiards and a tech center with meeting rooms, a coffee bar, and workspaces.

The use of earthen wood throughout adds depth, character, and warmth to the interior spaces while the splendor of a living green wall connects tenants to the natural environment. Affluent styling and familiar rich tones such as nutmeg, gold- and pewter-like metal finishes and slate blue hues against neutral stone define a contemporary-inspired style.

The 11,500 square feet of designated retail space sits across a shared driveway from a market on a contiguous lot creating a lively and engaging pedestrian connection from one site to the next. Running along the complex is a new sidewalk and a 10-foot-wide bicycle path, helping to link the Community Path to Watertown Square. A small parcel adjacent to the buildings has been converted into a park. The 480,000 square foot community offers residents easy access to shopping, popular restaurants, and recreation in the surrounding areas of Watertown, Waltham, Cambridge, and Boston.
