BRIGHTON, MA– The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s, the redevelopment of a historic church and monastery in Brighton, MA, announced that it has officially leased 75% of all unit offerings.
The new hilltop residential community at 161-185 Washington Street includes four rental buildings, all of which are currently open for immediate move-ins. The four residential buildings, Overlook Landmark, Overlook East, Overlook North, and Overlook West, offer 555 modern residences and are anchored by the restored St. Gabriel’s Church, now called Maker Hall, which is home to an incredible suite of amenities.
The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s offers residents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a historic landmark, painstakingly restored to preserve architectural detail while also affording residents every modern convenience and tasteful finishes in each apartment home. The property was developed by Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, along with Blue Vista Capital Management (capital partner), and PeakMade Real Estate (leasing and management). The developers additionally worked with architects BH+A to restore St. Gabriel’s Monastery and Church, and CUBE3 to create three new residential buildings.
“The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s is a beautiful and historic property unlike anything else on the market in Boston, and our vision for a unique and desirable residential community is validated by this significant leasing milestone,” said John Sullivan, Executive Vice President at Cabot, Cabot, & Forbes. “Our team successfully created a relaxing oasis within the city, and we are pleased that so many have chosen to experience all that life has to offer at this exciting property.”
The charming property offers convenience and comfort for all resident lifestyles. With access to a community shuttle, proximity to the Mass Pike, and nearby MBTA bus and train stops, The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s is a commuter’s dream and makes exploring the neighborhood a breeze. For those working from home, The Overlook offers coworking spaces, private conference rooms, and enterprise-grade WiFi included in monthly rent.
Additional amenities include a resort-style infinity pool, a fitness center, a coffee bar, a sky lounge, and more. Even pets can take advantage of The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s amenities, with two pet spas on the property and a private courtyard for animals to enjoy, along with a bounty of nearby parks to explore.
The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s recently announced two prestigious award wins for the new development. These include a Boston Preservation Alliance Award, which is presented annually to projects that honor historic preservation efforts in Boston, and a Preservation Massachusetts Mayor Thomas M. Menino Legacy Award, which recognizes projects that are transformative, catalytic, embrace the community, create partnerships, and revitalize the best of the past to make something good for the future.
