Situated about four miles outside of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, the town is the perfect location for residents who enjoy the outdoors but want to live within a city environment. Known as one of the greenest neighborhoods of Boston, residents will be able to access multiple parks within Boston’s Emerald Necklace Conservancy, like Jamaica Pond and the Arnold Arboretum, all within walking distance from the building. Each park offers activities including: sailing, hiking, golfing, biking and walking/running. And with the center of Boston just a 15-minute drive or 5 stops on the MBTA’s Orange Line away, residents will have an endless amount of things to do close to their home.
114-120 Brookside Ave. is a two-minute walk to the Green St. Orange Line stop, offering residents an easy commute into downtown Boston. Residents will also be able to access the commuter rail from the Orange Line, which offers transportation to surrounding communities and to neighboring states like Connecticut and New York.
Andrew Saccone, vice president at Cornerstone, said, “Jamaica Plain is a very desirable neighborhood. The area is becoming increasingly walkable and offers proximity to public transit that can take commuters downtown in about 15 minutes. In addition, the experience of the development team within Jamaica Plain made it an exciting project for potential lenders.”
