BRIGHTON, MA – Cabot, Cabot & Forbes recently hosted a Grand Opening Event to celebrate the completion of The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s, an award-winning redevelopment of a historic church and monastery in Brighton, MA.
The event took place on August 18th in the form of an early evening garden party in the outdoor courtyard. Guests enjoyed lawn games, music performed by local musician Louie Bello, and a wide array of hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.
The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in a historic landmark, beautifully restored to preserve architectural detail while also affording residents every modern convenience and tasteful finishes in each of the 555 apartment homes. The property features a range of apartment sizes, from studios to three-bedrooms. Residents of The Overlook at St. Gabriel’s enjoy a full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities, including private conference rooms and co-working spaces, a resort-style infinity pool, a fitness center, a coffee bar, a sky lounge, a pub located under the stunning cathedral ceiling of the former St. Gabriel’s Church, and more. The property has won several awards for its transformative design, including the 2021 Preservation Massachusetts Mayor Thomas M.
