Expected Completion


260 Beacon will be a 3-story, mixed-use residential development with 17 rental apartments, ground-level retail and parking. Located a few short blocks from Harvard University, 260 Beacon brings a fresh residential offering to the established Beacon Street Corridor, which hosts a range of first-class retail, restaurants, parks, higher learning institutions, and healthcare facilities, all within walking distance.

The property is centrally located, to both the Porter and Kendall Square T stops, and a short distance from Downtown Boston. The area is bike-friendly with border cities, Somerville and Cambridge, currently investing millions of dollars in a biking infrastructure that will expand the already impressive system of bike lanes and create a year-round bike share program.
