One Webster CHELSEA, MA
One Webster mixes residential and retail development in this burgeoning community north of Boston. Sitting along the primary Eastern Avenue thoroughfare, at the nexus of two neighborhood street grids, the building bends to engage both grids. Its contemporary exterior rises to highlight corners, creating soaring apartment interiors at the ends of the building. A tall retail pavilion edges the street, designed to accommodate multiple retailers with individual entries. Artfully designed interiors bring a contemporary lifestyle to this older residential neighborhood. Built in wood framing over a parking podium, the 120 apartments mix studio, one and two bedroom homes with high-quality appliances and finishes, all focused on efficient and cost-effective living.
