Luxury Apartments and 36,000 SF of Commercial Space Planned for Brookside Square

Woburn, MA (April 7, 2014) – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction manager and recognized leader in virtual design and construction solutions, participated in the official groundbreaking ceremony for Brookside Square, held earlier today in West Concord, MA. The five-acre, 126,000 SF mixed-use development site is positioned adjacent to West Concord’s main commercial district, a commuter rail station, Nashoba Brook, and a future “rails to trails” bike path. Project construction began in March 2014 with the demolition of the existing site.

Brookside Square represents Tocci’s third collaboration with Oaktree FX Development (Oaktree). The team, which also includes The Architectural Team (TAT), will collaborate using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to plan, optimize, and coordinate the project digitally to streamline the construction process.

This partnership will yield positive results and new opportunities for our firm, as well as The New England Regional Council of Carpenters, due to a shared understanding of industry-leading building processes, quality of work, and safety practices. We look forward to collaborative efforts on new and notable projects while continuing to deliver highly-efficient and cost-effective solutions to our clients in the future.

John Tocci, CEO of Tocci Building Companies

The complex will feature 74 luxury apartments—studios and one- and two-bedroom units on the building’s upper floors—and 36,000 square feet of first-class commercial space below. The commercial space is designed to attract businesses that will cater to the Brookside Square residents, mostly empty nesters looking to downsize and young professionals seeking a work-live-play environment.

Tocci team members John Tocci, Joe Ferolito, Ken Dubois, Joe Cavallaro, and Jason Goodwin were joined by Mayor John Smith of Concord; MA Secretary of Housing & Economic Development, Gregory Bialecki; MA Secretary of the Department of Transportation, Rich Davey; MA Assistant Secretary for Land & Forest, Stephanie Cooper; City Councilors Mary Jones and Barbara Billingsley; Gwendolen Noyes, Arthur Klipfel and Patrick Cleary of Oaktree FX Development; Nick and John Boynton of The Boynton Company; as well as Jack Kerrigan, Steve Cook and Bill Sullivan from Avison Young.
