CAMBRIDGE, MA – Fuse Cambridge, a 244-unit luxury apartment community located adjacent to the Alewife Brook Reservation in Cambridge, MA, announced that it has completed the installation of its ‘Living Green Wall’ – a diverse collection of wall-mounted plants that connects the building’s lobby with its ample amenity spaces.
Designed and maintained by Cityscapes, a leader in green roof and wall installation in the Boston-area, the community’s newest feature complements its health-conscious environment, which offers direct access to the 120- acre Alewife Brook Reservation, numerous walking/biking trails, and an abundance of natural light.
Fuse Cambridge’s ‘Living Green Wall’ features a variety of plants including an Austral Gem Fern, Philodendron ‘Silver Splash’, Epipremnum Aureum ‘Jade’, and a Fittonia & Red Fittonia. All plants are situated in 4” diameter grow pots that are hand-watered and rotated regularly by Cityscapes’ professional horticulturalists to ensure even growth.
“The Living Green Wall at Fuse Cambridge is not only visually striking, but also brings the beauty of nature inside the community and connects the indoors and outdoors in a memorable way,” commented Sean Sacks, Director at Hines. “We are excited to be on the forefront of Biophilic design and a healthy lifestyle.”
In addition to serving as a visually-appealing focal point at Fuse Cambridge, the ‘Living Green Wall’ also provides numerous health benefits including natural air filtration, sound insulation, stress reduction, and thermal regulation. Notably, the ‘Living Green Wall’ complements Fuse Cambridge’s LEED Silver Certification (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), which is a testament to the community’s focus on the health of its residents and a sustainable environment.
Developed by Hines and managed by The Bozzuto Group, Fuse Cambridge offers a variety of floor plans including studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartment homes ranging from 506 – 1,383 square feet. Each apartment home features oversized floor-to-ceiling windows, full-sized washers and dryers, white quartz countertops, premium kitchens with ENERGY STAR® appliances, walk-in spacious stall showers with spa-quality tile, and Kronoswiss wide plank flooring. Additionally, select homes offer walk-out patios, views of the Alewife Brook Reservation, and oversized balconies.
Fuse Cambridge is also equipped with a fitness center with cardio and strength training areas, a yoga/training room with Fitness On Demand, a heated pool and expansive sundeck, an outdoor kitchen area featuring gas BBQ grills and wet bar, and a Network Lounge with a large conference room. Additionally, residents will enjoy indoor bike storage complete with a repair station and a pet-friendly atmosphere with a Canine Club and dog walking service referrals.
