Sterling Properties has launched leasing at its new 69-unit, luxury apartment building in downtown Somerville.
Known as SOMA, the four-story building sits at 110 South Bridge St. and is among the newest additions to the fast-growing borough. Sterling announced the start of leasing on Monday, touting its location near the dining, shopping and nightlife of Somerville’s Division Street Plaza and Main Street corridor and one block from NJ Transit rail service.
SOMA is offering a mix of one- and two-bedroom layouts, plus recreational and social amenities, the developer said. Monthly rents begin from $1,550 to $2,700.
“We’re delighted to officially launch our leasing program and debut the newest luxury address in Somerville’s award-winning downtown,” said Nick Hollenbeck, director of sales and marketing for Sterling. “SOMA has been designed to offer the exact kind of trendy and chic homes and lively, urban-style environment today’s renter is in search of.
“The building has already generated a significant buzz in the market and we fully expect a strong response to its much-anticipated opening.”
Designed by Comito Associates, SOMA features layouts ranging from 585 to 1,290 square feet, each with tall ceilings, an in-unit washer and dryer, stainless steel appliances and designer finishes, according to a news release. Mary Cook and Associates designed the project’s unit interiors and common space, which includes amenities such as a modern fitness studio and tech lounge.
SOMA was also designed to meet silver standards on the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design scale, which aims to reduce the building’s carbon footprint and provide residents significant savings in their energy bill and elsewhere.
“As part of our LEED efforts, we’ve instituted a bike share program our residents will be sure to appreciate,” Hollenbeck said. “Rather than getting in a car, they will have access to bikes which will allow them to pedal downtown, save on emissions and also shop locally.”
