Erland Construction to Build New Apartment Community for Nordblom Company & Life Time

Burlington, Mass. - Nordblom, in partnership with Life Time, has selected Erland along with Stantec to construct a new 167-unit apartment community within Northwest Park. The 5-story, 250,000sf residence will house studio-, 1- and 2-bedroom units. Its brick and stone veneer mixed with metal and fiber cement panel facade will draw the attention of passerby along Middlesex Turnpike. The transit-oriented property also offers easy access to public transportation and major highways.

The S-shaped design of the building will offer two exterior courtyards on the 2nd floor with outdoor grills, fire pits, a covered metal pergola and seating. Levels two through five will be constructed using a Hambro structural building system sitting on a post-tensioned podium deck. The majority of the first level will be used for parking with 169 covered garage spaces available to residents. There will be an additional 100 surface spaces surrounding the building. Residents will enjoy several building amenities including bike storage, a game room, a fire place lounge, and private event space. They will also receive a Diamond Level membership to the Life Time located across from the property which gives them access to all 160+ Life Time athletic resorts across the country and concierge resident services, private resident only events, and personalized services to drive the Healthy Way of Life.

“We are excited to be partnering with Erland on another exciting residential project,” said Todd Nordblom, President, Nordblom Company. “We’ve worked together for over 40 years and they’ve always put our best interest first. Their teams continue to meet and exceed our expectations when it comes to quality. We look forward to partnering together on the 4th Ave Residences at Northwest Park.”  

The project is estimated to take 23 months to construct. Erland has a longstanding relationship with Nordblom—having been brought on by them 45 years ago to build Northwest Park into the office, R+D, and amenity-centric hub it is today and still working together to develop the campus as its tenants’ needs evolve.

“We’re very excited to continue our great partnership with Nordblom,” said Eric Greene, Vice President, Residential Group Manager, Erland. “A lot of planning and thought has gone into this new apartment community, recognizing the many benefits this type of development will offer Burlington residents. Having a great place to live starts with a sense of comfort and that’s exactly what the 4th Ave Residences at Northwest Park will provide with its modern apartments, array of amenities, and proximity to highways and public transportation.”
