Cambridge-based PCA has completed Arthaus, an art-focused residential development in the heart of Boston’s Allston neighborhood. According to PCA principal Dave Snell, Arthaus was fully leased prior to completion.
“With Arthaus, we wanted to create a one-of-a-kind residential experience that reflects the artistic and diverse cultural character of the neighborhood,” said Snell. “Allston has long been at the heart of Boston’s arts and music community, and the connection between the Arthaus design, the building’s amenities and its community engagement clearly struck a chord with residents.”
Arthaus is designed to enliven the neighborhood’s public realm with a glassed-in lobby showcasing local artists and a street-level public plaza with seating on North Beacon Street. The gallery, managed by Unbound Visual Artists, engages passersby with an ever-changing display of locally created artwork.
The property is developed by the Mount Vernon Company and comprised of a five-story, 72-unit apartment residence and a separate nine-unit condominium building.
