The 125/133 Sumner Street project consisted of the demolition of four existing buildings, and the construction of two, three-story wood frame residential buildings totaling 52 rental and for sale units. The Harborwalk Residences condo building is a mix of 30 affordable and market rate units, and all 22 units of the Harbor125 Apartments are affordable. The new construction also included a 1,040 SF public community room and outdoor patio with sweeping harbor and downtown skyline views. The buildings also contains approximately 3,400 SF of ground-floor retail space facing Sumner Street, 19 surface parking spaces and 50 bicycle storage spaces.
The project encountered both extensive environmental remediation work during demolition and preparation of the site as well as a construction pause caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Both of the new buildings meet LEED Gold certification standards established by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes (Version 4) program, including Energy Star certification and EPA’s Indoor airPLUS label for high indoor air quality.
The project is located one block from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s MBTA Blue Line station at Maverick.
