Erland Construction to Build New Mixed-Use Property in Beverly, MA

Beverly, Mass. - Beverly Crossing has selected Erland to construct a new 167,230sf 6-story mixed-use property in the heart of Beverly, MA. Designed by SV Design to revitalize the city’s downtown, “The Block at Odell Park” will house 106 units, an array of amenities, and 9,000sf of retail space. The new building will be constructed on an incredibly tight site adjacent to the state’s third busiest commuter rail stop, the Beverly Depot Train Station.

The Block has been meticulously designed to complement the emerging neighborhood while adding to the existing downtown aesthetic.  A key feature is the historic incorporation of the iconic Joseph A. Appleton Building (Hotel Walter) as a prominent corner element. The residential floors will have a mix of studio, 1- and 2-bedroom layouts. Amenities include a 2-story parking garage, lounge/billiards, fitness center, and an ‘urban style’ courtyard. The building also boasts a “sky lounge” and roof deck with expansive views of the nearby Bass River waterfront and Odell Park.

“This vision of adding new housing and retail shops to an already lively area with restaurants, places of work, and nearby beaches will add to Beverly’s downtown,” said Eric Greene, Residential Group Manager, Erland Construction. “The walkability to the train station and easy access to Route 128 makes this area a great place to live.”  

Residents will enjoy features and services found at comparable properties in downtown Boston, while experiencing all the benefits of the city’s North Shore location including arts and culture, employment centers, schools, and transit options, all with a smaller-scale yet urban feel. Completion is expected December of 2022.

“We’re looking forward to partnering with Erland on this downtown revitalization,” said Chris Koeplin, President, Beverly Crossing. “They understand our commitment to serving Beverly and transforming the city into a desirable destination and strong, thriving community. We couldn’t be more excited to have them onboard for this next project.”
