Construction has started on a 93-unit apartment complex near the Red Line’s Alewife terminus in Cambridge.

The project, called Park 77, will replace the site of the former J&C Adams door and window factory and warehouse at 77 New Street. It’s right across from Danehy Park and right next to a 54-unit apartment development called Park 87 that the same pair of developers put up.

Those developers—AbodeZ and Acorn Holdings—told the Business Journal’s Catherine Carlock that they had great luck in renting to families at Park 87, and that in part spurred the decision to build Park 77.

The new complex will include amenities such as as a terrace with a built-in gas grill, a cafe with a full kitchen, a multimedia room, a meeting room with audio-visual equipment, and a top-floor lounge with a roof deck and a gym. The pet-friendly complex is supposed to open in the summer of 2018.

Even before that, it joins numerous other developments along and near the Red Line.
