Construction is in the throes of its last, exciting stage. The site looks different from one day to the next. The mid-rises on Western Avenue (E1 and D1) are complete. The mid-rise on Telford St (E2) is nearing completion. All of the townhomes have been framed, except for the last two behind the D1 mid-rise on Justinian Way. Site work is progressing rapidly, and within two weeks this neighborhood will have new roads and a new park.
By our ribbon cutting ceremony on June 21, the construction site will be reduced to the D-block townhomes, B-block, and a staging area on C-block. Resident move-ins will begin on the rest of the site on June 24th. The relocation of residents from the existing Charlesview at Barry’s Corner and the move-ins of new residents will continue through the summer and finish up in the first week of September.
Move-ins will be timed to minimize disruption. Moving trucks will be located on the new streets. Charlesview move-ins won’t feel anything like that first weekend of September normally does in Allston-Brighton. But soon, everything else about Charlesview will just feel like everyday, normal Allston-Brighton (whatever that is).
