The Reservoir Lofts in Cambridge sold their first unit in May 2008, but what started as a budding group of condo owners has flowered into a full-fledged community complete with BBQ’s, newsletters, and even their own website, reservoirlofts.net. The lofts are situated in an enclave of four garden-style buildings surrounded by landscaped courtyards with winding walkways.
First level condos have exclusive walk-out terraces and gardens, while the two-level penthouses sport 20 ft. ceilings with beautiful balconies and huge decks. Each loft has different specifications, but kitchens come fully-stocked including hardwood flooring (maple, red oak, bamboo, or Brazilian cherry), granite countertops, Armstrong maple cabinets, and classy stainless steel appliances. Each unit also comes with washer/dryer hookups and heated underground parking.
Seperate from the condominium board and the developers, reservoirlofts.net was created by members of the community for members of the community and provides some really great resources including tips for new residents, a place to report issues to the core group, a digital recap of community meetings, and a community newsletter. The “core group” is made up of eight volunteers working to see that Reservoir Lofts becomes what it should be, a nice place to live, and their accomplishments include organizing and executing a summer BBQ, establishing wireless internet access in the courtyard and common areas, publishing a community handbook, and they’ve even started a wiki-page for the lofts.
Located in Cambridge’s Fresh Pond neighborhood, residents at the Reservoir Lofts enjoy a plethora of destinations easily reached by foot including, CVS Pharmacy, The Fresh Pond Reservoir, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Bank Of America, TD Bank, Staples, and Fresh Pond 10, an affordable first-run movie theater. The Fresh Pond Reservoir, only a 60 second walk from the condos, offers in its many acres a tranquil environment for relaxation and meditation, miles of beautiful trails for walking or running, and an 18 hole golf course. Also within walking distance is Danehy Park, the Fresh Pond Shopping Center, and the Callanan Playground, and with a car or bike one could easily navigate to Belmont Center, Harvard Square, True Value, and The Arsenal Mall. Finally, the lofts are also conveniently located within walking distance of the MBTA’s Alewife station on the Red Line, which connects to South Station and the Amtrak, providing residents with easy access to further Cambridge commercial centers, downtown Boston, and Logan Airport.
