New Boston apartments coming to Fort Point Channel / Innovation District in February
A new apartment building in Boston’s exciting Fort Point Channel / Innovation / Seaport / South Boston Waterfront / Parking Lot District is currently under construction with occupancy beginning at the turn of the new year.
The property at 63 Melcher Street, to be known as Factory63, is an existing 6-story brick warehouse originally built in 1908 that is being preserved and redeveloped into a highly sustainable apartment project with anticipated LEED Gold certification.
There will be 34 units in the building when completed, an interesting mix of typical-style two-bedroom units, a number of “live-work spaces”, as well as some “innovation units”, which are studio apartments.
According to the Factory63 website, residents will also enjoy:
Shared work space
Local retail partners
Deck with grill
Sustainable features anticipated at the property include a Central Energy Recovery System, heat recovery on waste
