The Aver Luxury Apartments in Watertown Holds Grand Opening


WATERTOWN, MA – Amstel Heritage Development announces the Grand Opening of The Aver luxury apartment community, an amenity-rich project within walking distance of thriving downtown Watertown Center and just steps away from the Charles River Bike Path.

The 25-unit pet-friendly complex, consisting 2 studios, 2 one-bedroom, and 21 two-bedroom units, is located at 345-385 Pleasant Street on the City line of Newton and Watertown . It is less than 6 miles from downtown Boston, 2 miles east of Bentley University, 3 miles from Brandeis University, 4 miles west of Harvard University, 6 miles from M.I.T, and a short drive to the high-tech, bio-tech and life sciences employment opportunities along the busy Route 128 corridor.

“The Aver is one of the first mid-sized projects to combine technology and environmental sustainability.  Today’s residents are concerned about the environment and they will seek out an apartment community that has an active green initiative.  Our eco-friendly amenities include Electric Car Charging Stations, Tankless Water Heaters, Solar Panels, Dual Flush Toilets.  We have taken a fresh approach to the design and development process in an effort to bring something unique into the market,” said Brian McGrath, Amstel Heritage director.

Apartment construction in Boston was virtually shut down over the past few months, so The Aver is one of the first of a wave of multifamily rental properties in a vibrant area hungry for new rental product.

“The Aver development is coming to market at an ideal time,” explained McGrath,. “This centralized location provides easy access to the Boston Metro 50+ colleges and universities as well as the white hot bio-tech industry employers”

Construction on The Aver started in  2018. The complex features an attractive exterior design with modern amenities as well as high-quality interior finishes such as stylish quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, In-Unit Laundry, and engineered flooring. Other features include fob entry, USB chargers in all rooms, video guest entry, bike storage, private balconies and chef inspired spacious kitchen islands.

Retailers such as Target, Best Buy, Home Depot, Marshals, Roche Bros Supermarket are close by. Boylston properties is currently completing a $400 million redevelopment of the Arsenal Mall which will include 425 apartments, 250,000 square feet of retail including a Shake Shack; 200,000 square feet of office space; a 150-key Hampton Inn & Suites.

The Aver is less than 11 miles from the beautiful beaches of the North and South Shore and within 10 miles of more than 10 excellent golf courses, including Weston Golf Club, Woodland Country Club, and Brae Burn Country Club.
