Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) announces today they have broken ground at Breakwater in Lynn, MA. The Dolben Company is developing the future luxury waterfront apartment complex, with HDS Architecture serving as the architect. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on December 11, 2019, with Governor Charlie Baker, Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy, and Senator Brendan Crighton all in attendance.
The Breakwater apartment complex, which overlooks Lynn Harbor, will completely transform a section of real estate previously vacated for more than 35 years. Construction for the multifamily development is happening on the site of former Beacon-Bel Chevrolet and is scheduled for completion in March 2022.
The development will have 331 apartments in two buildings as well as on-site parking. In addition to spectacular waterfront views, Breakwater will feature many high-end amenities such as two courtyards, a fitness center, game room, pet wash, and outdoor fire pit. There will also be a harborwalk along the waterfront, which will be available for public use.
“We are excited to announce our collaboration with the State, City of Lynn, Dolben, and HDS Architecture as we bring additional residential opportunities to Greater Boston,” said Patrick Callahan, President of Callahan Construction. “We are excited to transform the harbor front into a lively housing community that embodies Lynn’s bright future.”
The Breakwater project received two major grants from the State of Massachusetts. The first grant is an $1,000,000 infrastructure grant from the Seaport Economic Council for improvements to the seawall, to ensure the harbor is a viable place to live for years to come. The second grant is from MassWorks to help with traffic on the Lynnway, a busy highway that connects Lynn to Boston.
