Boston drivers spend countless hours stuck in traffic to and from work. And it’s not getting better. In just a few years, traffic has gone from bad to worse — Boston commuters now have the fifth most time-consuming commute in the country.
If you’re one of those parked on the highway at rush hour on the way home to Waltham, Sudbury, southern New Hampshire, the South Shore — or wherever you happen to live — we’ve got some good news: you can end the grueling commute today.
Metro9’s new luxury condos in Somerville takes you within minutes of Downtown Boston, whether you prefer to drive, hop on your bike, or take the Green Line T.
Here are three ways moving to the new luxury condos at Metro9 will help you cut your commute:
1. So close to everything
Leave aside for now the thriving restaurant scene right around the corner from Metro9. Living at these new luxury condos mean you are close to everything that metro Boston has to offer. The distance to academic powerhouses like Harvard, MIT, and Tufts can be counted in blocks. North Station is just one T-stop from Metro9. TD Garden and the Museum of Science are equally accessible. And you can easily reach Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Logan Airport, and Harvard Square. Do you still need I-93, Route 1, and the Mass Pike? Again, think easy access — and wave “bye-bye” to that commute.
2. So easy to get around
Excellent transit. That’s Walk Score’s official word on the Metro9 neighborhood. Getting home to your new luxury condo is as easy as getting to work. Let’s start with the Green Line T-stop at Lechmere Station, located a 10-minute walk from the new luxury condos at Metro 9. And when the Green Line extension brings new stops, you can enjoy the added convenience, too. The Red and Orange Lines are also nearby, as are three MBTA bus routes, a block or two away. Here’s a wild guess: you won’t miss the gridlock.
3. So convenient to ride a bike
Somerville is one of just two Massachusetts communities to earn the Gold Level Bicycle Community award by the League of American Bicyclists. Already known as the “unofficial cycling capital” of the Boston area, Somerville keeps expanding its low-stress network of bike paths to enable residents to safely travel by bike throughout the city.
Metro9 mirrors the bike-friendly neighborhood with a secure bike storage with room for 100 bikes, as well as an onsite repair and maintenance station. You can also use nearby Blue Bikes, the bike-sharing service formerly known as Hubway. Perhaps you’ll be one of the lucky few riding along the Charles River to work? It sure sounds better than bumper-to-bumper traffic.
With less time wasted on commuting, you’ll have more time for other things, like greeting spring on the Metro9 roof deck with sweeping city views. Come and take a tour of Metro9 today.
