126,000 sf Mixed-Use Development Includes 74 Luxury Apartments and 36,000 sf of Commercial Space
WOBURN, MA (October 5, 2015) – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction management company and recognized leader in virtual design and construction solutions, celebrated the completion of Brookside Square in West Concord, MA, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 2, 2015. The event was attended by Oaktree FX Development (Oaktree), property manager WinnResidential, and special guest Massachusetts State Senator Michael Barrett. After remarks in the Brookside Square courtyard, attendees were welcome to tour the property and a model apartment.
With a project kickoff date of March 2014, the three-story 126,000 SF mixed-use development is situated on five acres, featuring 74 luxury studio, one, and two-bedroom units on floors two and three, with the ground floor offering 36,000 square feet of first-class commercial space. The residential units include open-concept layouts, private patios or balconies, shared green roof space, energy star appliances, chef’s kitchens, and custom high-end finishes. The commercial space is designed to include businesses, which cater to the Brookside Square residents seeking a work-live-play environment. Designed to achieve a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating of 50 out of 150, making it 50% more energy efficient than a standard new home, the project featured both energy-efficient mechanical and electrical systems. Positioned adjacent to a commuter rail station, the Nashoba Brook, a future “rails to trails” bike path, and West Concord’s main shopping district, as well as featuring many luxury amenities, Brookside Square provides an enviable work-life balance closely aligned with the community.
Brookside Square has already become an intrinsic part of the community, not only through its residential offerings but also its first-class office space and access to public transportation. We are proud to have helped deliver a quality product through our highly efficient and collaborative processes.Bud LaRosa, Chief Business Performance Officer at Tocci
