  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2010 - Mitchell Properties LLC is pleased to hold a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to mark the substantial completion of Atlas Lofts, a 53 loft-style luxury apartment community located along Gerrish Avenue in Chelsea's Box District. The event will be held at 10:00 a.m. on July 28th, 2010 at Atlas Lofts, and interested parties are encouraged to attend.

    "This is a significant milestone for Atlas Lofts, The Box District, and The City of Chelsea," said Jay Ash, Chelsea City Manager. "I've visited the Atlas Lofts and it is beautiful. Mitchell Properties, The Architectural Team, and NEI Construction are all to be complimented for a job well done. We could not be more delighted to welcome Atlas Lofts' new residents to these building and to the fast-growing Box District neighborhood."

    Attendees include Massachusetts Housing and Economic Development Secretary Greg Bialecki, Undersecretary Tina Brooks, City Manager Jay Ash, newly elected State Senator Sal DiDomenico, Representative Eugene O'Flaherty, and other local and state officials. A light lunch will be served, along with tours of the building, and spoken acknowledgements from various persons involved in the project.

    According to Julia Noyes, Property Manager for Atlas Lofts, each apartment features the original historic brick and wood detail, plus granite counters, a gas-fired range, polished concrete floors, soaring ceiling heights, massive windows with an abundance of natural light, tiled shower, extra tall kitchen cabinets, and in-home washer/dryer.

    In addition, residents of Atlas Lofts will enjoy impressive amenities throughout the building including a state-of-the-art fitness room with individual iPod and TV touch screen controls, community room and kitchenette with flat screen TV, patio, interior extensive bike storage, and a furnished roof deck. Free Wi-Fi will be accessible to residents in the community areas and on the roof deck. Atlas Lofts is pet-friendly, and offers off-street assigned parking and storage units. More than half of the apartments are already pre-leased.

    Originally built in 1911 for the manufacturing of paper boxes, and converted in the mid-1960's to the Spring Air/Atlas Bedding mattress factory, the beautiful brick and beam structure was redesigned into modern loft style apartments by The Architectural Team, a prominent Chelsea business and one of the leading architectural firms for the rehabilitation and reuse of historic properties into housing.

    Adapting historic industrial buildings into new homes is one of the most eco-friendly methods of construction, and the property is also designed with some of the latest green features. Water conserving faucets, toilets, and appliances will save in excess of 4,929,000 gallons of water per year over conventional fixtures. New, efficient mechanical systems provide residents with fresh air in order to improve interior air quality. Flooring materials, such as poured concrete, cut down on allergens and other particles that may post a health risk to susceptible residents. Atlas Lofts is also proudly smoke-free.

    To complement the green living in each apartment, residents of Atlas Lofts will be able to easily walk, bike, or ride to downtown Boston, the commuter rail, the Blue Line, and the Orange Line. Atlas Lofts is rated as "very walkable" and within a few steps of the shops and restaurants along Broadway Ave.

    As of today, those interested in making Atlas Lofts their home are invited to schedule an appointment to tour the fully-furnished model unit by calling 617-884-7271, e-mailing live ( @ ) atlas-lofts dot com, or visiting www dot atlas-lofts dot com dot
