Complete 22 Water St | North Point Area | Cambridge

I thought we should break out this project because of its size and scope. 22 Water Street will be 392 apartments, 528,000 sqf, in building sections of 13,14, and 15 floors.

Nice! I didn't realize this was already going up. Looks like it could be a solid addition.

Great shots, Bee.

Do you see the below grade "plaza area" on the building's south end taking shape yet? In your images, it doesn't look like it ... I looked last night from 1 Earhart but there were impediments.

Re: 22 Water Str. (North Point Area), Cambridge, MA

Seeing 21 Water Street in those photos reminds me that that building was scheduled for demolition a year ago. See slide 6 of this presentation http://greenlineextension.eot.state....ion_031413.pdf from last year.

Don't know the reason for the hold-up.

Re: 22 Water Str. (North Point Area), Cambridge, MA

I go by here a lot. This is a good building and a lot of units will be there. Is the empty lot facing the street part of this, or will it eventually be its another building? I haven't been able to tell from the renderings. I hope something goes to the streetwall.

Those are big average sizes for apartments (compared to what's been going up recently).

528k is total gross sf. You can't quite divide 528000 by 392 and get an average size because the 528 includes lobbies, retail, parking, amenities, and possibly even outdoor patios.

Re: 22 Water Str. (North Point Area), Cambridge, MA

Assuming 15% of the built structure are common features like data mentioned, that would make average unit sizes about 1,150 square. There's probably a decent share of 2- and 3-bedroom units here that would fall in that size range. The market certainly can use more projects like this.

I know, but this is a double-stacked rectangle so I assume it's pretty efficient. You're right though, they could be including the garage.

Crappy shot with the setting sun, but it's grown quite a bit since the last posted pic:
