The Residences at 1500 Main
The Residences at 1500 Main is a mixed-use development located at 1500 Main Street in Weymouth, Massachusetts. The 5.5-acre site was occupied by a warehouse building and associated site improvements. The existing improvements were demolished, and the site was cleared to facilitate the proposed development. The proposed development involved the construction of three 5-story buildings, two of which are mixed-use, and one is solely residential. Two of the buildings contain internal parking garages, and all buildings are seeking LEED Certification. The three buildings support 237 residential units (332 total bedrooms) and approximately 6,120 SF of commercial space. The development includes a centralized parking lot, accessory landscape and hardscape, outdoor amenity space, and associated drainage and utility improvements.
CHA was involved in the site design and permitting associated with the development. Site design aspects included site layout, grading and drainage, domestic water and fire protection services, gravity and forced sewer lines, electric and telecommunication, and natural gas services. A flood study was also performed to associate a base flood elevation with the FEMA Zone A, and a Letter of Map Revision is anticipated to be filed with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
