The Box District

Chelsea, MA

This former box manufacturing industrial district has been transformed as a new 250+ unit, multi-block residential neighborhood. ICON has designed four new infill developments positioned amidst existing residential and retail structures, and worked with the City of Chelsea to design and build new streets and public parks. The Box District comprises 49 units in three separate buildings, mixing rental apartments with home ownership condominiums. Nearby, Janus Homes includes 18 units wrapped around a large, native species flowering garden. The 32-apartment Spencer Row sits above a parking podium and combines private entry townhouses with apartment flats. Highland Terrace adds 30 new flats and townhouses overlooking a new city park, and achieves LEED for Homes Platinum.
