Located in Watertown’s East End, Arsenal Yards is a massive mixed-use development spanning more than 1 million square feet. Situated on a site that housed the Watertown Arsenal prior to the Civil War and the Arsenal Mall from the mid-1980s through 2013, the mixed-use development represents a major step into the future for Watertown. Construction continues, but many components of the development are already open. All told, it will include 250,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, 200,000 square feet of lab and office space, a 300-unit apartment development, a 150-room hotel and a seven-screen movie theater.

Prior to the Civil War, the site was home to the Watertown Arsenal. In 1983, it opened for business as a shopping mall called the Arsenal Marketplace; one of its first anchor tenants was Marshalls, which continues to operate there to this day. For a while, the mall held the distinction of housing the only digital game clock that was ever used at the Boston Garden. In 2013, the site was purchased by Boylston Properties and the Wilder Companies, and it was renamed the Arsenal Project. In 2016, plans for Arsenal Yards, the mixed-use development that is largely completed today, were introduced by the developers; they were unanimously approved by the Watertown Planning Board in January 2017.

Primary features of the development include:

This development has already changed the face of this section of Watertown, but it has managed to do so while retaining much of its original and historic charm. With the apartment development slated to open in the winter of 2021, it is safe to say that leasing for those units will be starting in the spring or so. Since so many options will be available, there’s no doubt that these units will be snapped up quickly. With that in mind, connect with Boston City Properties for the resources that you need to identify the perfect apartment at this development when the time comes.
