The 177-unit apartment component of the massive Hood Park development in Charlestown is readying to open to tenants in September.
Studios at the Harvey at 480 Rutherford Avenue (a.k.a. 50 Hood Park Drive) start at $2,505 a month, one-bedrooms at $2,655, and two-bedrooms at $3,685, according to the building’s website. Several units are available in each size.
The redevelopment of the old H.P. Hood and Sons dairy hub is due to include seven new buildings as well as a handful of existing ones and 2.88 acres of parkland. The buildings include three office and lab properties at 10 and 30 Stack streets and 100 Hood Park Drive.
Altogether, the 20-acre project is supposed to result in 1,735,800 square feet of development total near both I-93 and the Orange Line stop at Sullivan Square.
As for the Harvey itself, CBT Architects worked with the developers—a limited liability company that includes the Kaneb family and Catamount Management—to create an exceptionally environmentally friendly building. It is expected to be one of the first LEED Platinum multifamily projects in the region, according to CBT. That includes a continuously insulated building envelope to maintain energy efficiency.
Amenities in the building are expected to include two levels of underground parking, enough bike storage for each resident to park one bike, a fitness center, a courtyard with gas grills, and a ride-share lounge. Each unit will also have a washer-dryer.
