Lofts 232023-08-09T09:33:05-04:00

Located within a 2.3 million-square-foot, mixed-use development near Central Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the lofts at 23 Sidney Street offer apartment living in an urban context. The four-story, 56,000 square-foot copper-clad building is located at the northern end of University Park and houses 51 loft-style residential units with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and flexible open floor plans.

“Given our longstanding collaborations with Walsh Brothers, they were the obvious choice to build Loft 23, a project that required a unique approach and high quality craftsmanship to achieve its design and market aspirations.”

Sustainable construction technologies were utilized on the project to conserve resources, reduce costs, and promote environmental responsibility. The building makes use of recycled materials such as pre-patinated copper shingles on its exterior and features a landscaped “green roof” designed with both aesthetic and environmental considerations in mind.
