Charlestown’s Hood Park slated to get 177-unit apartment complex

Would be office park’s first residential component

The developer behind the 20-acre Hood Park redevelopment in the northern reaches of a changing Charlestown plans to add a 177-unit apartment complex where it once planned a 143,000-square-foot office building.

Pending the necessary approvals, Catamount Management Corp. would construct a six-story residential building with 10,500 square feet of retail in addition to the 177 apartments above. The building, a bet on the local housing market, would rise on a 72,850-square-foot vacant lot at 480 Rutherford Avenue.

The residential component would be a first for the Hood Park complex, once home to dairy company H.P. Hood and Sons and now (mostly) an office park.

Catamount’s redevelopment of the site started shortly after the turn of the century and includes 500 Rutherford Avenue, a commercial building that would be next to the apartment complex.
