Nauset Starts Construction on Chestnut Hill MXU Development

Nauset Construction has begun work on the transformation of the site of a former gas station into 50 luxury apartments above 6,500 square feet of ground floor retail space for owner Chestnut Hill Investments in Brookline.

Located at the corner of Boylston St. and Hammond St., the project, which will be called 1180 Boylston Street, will be an upscale, transit-oriented, walkable residential community for residents aged 55 and older. Designed by CBT Architects, the six-story wood-frame structure will be constructed over a steel podium concrete slab on deck with two levels of below grade parking for 70 vehicles. Designed with sustainability in mind, the residential portion consists of 50 apartments with all-electric appliances and a unit mix of 15 one-, 33 two- and two, three-bedroom units.

“Removing this long-shuttered service station and constructing this mixed-use development will be a boon to the entire neighborhood, aesthetically and environmentally” said Raj Dhanda, principal at Chestnut Hill Investments. “1180 Boylston will provide an ideal rental housing alternative for area residents seeking to downsize from their single-family homes while remaining connected to their lifelong community.”
