Our roundup of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
The Nines teases its luxury apartments
The property owner of the new apartment complex at the Wellesley Office Park space in between Rte. 9 and the Charles River has begun sharing details about what’s to come. The development, located in the Fiske Elementary School district, is for mixed use— so retailers will be coming, too.
Like the new condo complexes on Weston Road and Linden Street, The Nines lays it on thick, with promises of a “superior living experience,” “luxury residence,” “upscale apartment living,” “making life easy,” “live life elevated,” and oddly, “a tradition of perfect living”…for a brand new place (guess it refers to the developer’s tradition). There’s an obligatory mention of stuff being “curated.”
It does look nice, with studios and 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, a sweet pool and gym, co-working space, and “endless amenities.” A dog run and spa will be part of the package, though it will cost extra if you want to bring a pup, and certain breeds (e.g., Dobermans, Rottweillers, Pit Bull Terriers) aren’t allowed.
Property owner Hanover said back in November of 2109 that the complex would be fully electrified to meeting sustainability goals.
The marketing material doesn’t say when the apartments will become available or how much they will cost, but does say there will be 262 “well-appointed” apartments (there are plans for 350 residential units, with 25% of them being affordable under 40R development rules, but it’s unclear how those affordable ones will be marketed).
