Metro9 is unlike any other condo building in Somerville – it’s the perfect blend of industrial flare, luxurious design and alluring comforts, at the most convenient location outside the city and a cost far less than condos for sale in downtown Boston. Everything about Metro9 was created to reflect the dynamic energy of the area and appeal to the every want of Somerville real estate buyers. There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Metro9, and there’s also a lot to know about what makes this luxury condo building different from the others.
Building Conversion – What was once a century-old cold storage facility has been reborn to house these sleek new Somerville condos. Millbrook Cold Storage, as it was formerly called, had 10-12 tons and $5 million dollar’s worth of lobster tails at any one time, and at one point held over 1 million lobsters! The history of the building adds a style and character not found in recently build Somerville condominium buildings.
Roof Deck – Metro9 has the only roof deck in the area with stunning views of Boston, grills and an outdoor television. Want to watch the Red Sox and Yankees battle it out on a big screen with the infamous Citgo sign in the background? The roof deck at Metro9 is the only place to do it! Here’s a full list of all the amenities Metro9 has to offer its residents.
Green Living – Metro9 was redesigned and reconstructed using ecologically friendly strategies, which diverted 325 metric tons of waste during construction. Green systems were implemented for residences and common spaces, which will save 2,011,807 gallons of water and 2,400,000 KWH of electricity ever year, and offset 1,455 metric tons of CO2 . Metro9 has received a LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Convenience – No matter where you need to go in or around Boston, you can get there quickly either by car, foot or public transportation, from Metro9. Kendall Square, Harvard, MIT, Tufts, the Museum of Science, TD Garden and the North End are all very close, as are all of Somerville’s popular squares. Downtown Boston, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Logan Airport and Harvard Square are a 20 minute ride from the newest condominium building in Somerville, and residents have direct access to Routes 93, 1 and the Mass Pike.
The Importance of Art – Somerville is filled with creativity and innovation, and Metro9 was developed to nurture that passion in all of its residents. For artists, Metro9 has designated 5 loft-style homes for living and work spaces. Additionally, there’s an art amenity space that can be used for art functions, as artist workspace, or to display the artistic creation of the community. Throughout Metro9, the hallways and common spaces are decorated with inspirational work from local artists.
Residential development is ubiquitous in and around Boston right now, and for good reason, the demand for Boston real estate has been at a record high for the last 2 years. Most are relatively conventional, with basic amenities and modern living spaces, but very few offer residents the unique combinations or comfort and originality, convenience and style, function and luxury. Because of its commitment to reflecting the most authentic and captivating aspects of Somerville’s dynamic population, Metro9 stands apart from all other luxury condo buildings around Boston.
