Beverly, MA Beverly Crossing has opened its newest apartment community, Link480. Link480 is a 90-unit mixed-use development located at 480 Rantoul St. 11 of the units are permanently restricted to 80% of area median income. The building was designed by Siemasko + Verbridge (SV), constructed by Windover Construction, financed by People’s United Bank, and is professionally managed by The Dolben Company, Inc.
Construction began in early 2017 with the first residents taking occupancy in July. The property is more than 50% leased.
Link480 offers a mix of studio, one-bed and two-bedroom apartment homes with amenities such as a fitness room, billiards lounge, indoor bicycle storage, package room, and a furnished outdoor courtyard with grills and a fire pit.
SV designed each unit to include an open living room/kitchen concept appointed with quartz countertops, stainless appliances, walk-in closets, laundry, and bar style seating at the kitchen island. Many apartments have private decks or Juliet balconies, and several top floor units have water views of the nearby Bass River inlet. The 1,900 s/f street-level retail space will provide additional amenities to the neighborhood.
Link480 is located a half mile from both Beverly Depot and Montserrat commuter rail stations, is close to area beaches and recreation, and is a short walk to the Cummings Center, Cabot Theater, as well as the city’s restaurant and cultural scene.
Chris Koeplin, president of Beverly Crossing, said, “The completion of Link480 charts a new course for modern living along the northern section of the Rantoul corridor. It continues Beverly’s revitalization trend with new ‘amenitized’ transit-oriented development offerings. Link480 launches at a point in time where this kind of lifestyle option can only be had for much higher prices closer to Boston.”
