Utile is working with Cuttyhunk Capital on The Neponset, a new transit-oriented residential building in Quincy, MA. The project transforms a former mechanic’s garage and parking lot to a six-story mixed-use residential building that will serve as a gateway to North Quincy and Wollaston. The building is comprised of two levels of parking with three-and-a-half levels of housing and a rooftop amenity room and roof deck, featuring large areas of planting. The ground floor houses a double-height lobby, fitness room, and bike room. Residential floors feature airy two-bedroom units with oversized windows that prioritize access to views of the ocean and Boston skyline.
The design makes use of modular brick as the primary facade material, complemented by finer grain coursing surrounding windows. The rhythm of the facade is punctuated by a glassy “lantern” that will both bring southern light into several of the units and also act as a beacon at a prominent gateway site.
