Treadmark is an 83 unit six-story sustainable transit oriented development that maintains a strong visual connection to the former Ashmont Tire auto shop it replaced. Designed to achieve LEED-H MFMR Certification, the $45M mixed-use, mixed-income building is enveloped in gray ironspot brickwork interspersed with clean, vertical aluminum panels that give the structure a distinctly modern feel. Stylistically, the exterior’s straight edges and angular corners set the building apart from the surrounding redbrick landscape. Large, garage-bay-style openings on the ground floor lead foot-traffic into the sizable 5,000 square foot retail spaces: another aesthetic and functional nod to the site’s industrial roots.
Inspired by early 20th Century factory architecture, Treadmark strikes a modern figure against the brick-stone backdrop of Peabody Square, adds vibrancy to the surrounding neighborhood and is conveniently located at the southern end of the MBTA’s Red Line, at Ashmont Station.
