The property itself was built in 1968 but has some excellent amenities and updates that make it an excellent option for anyone that wants to live in Norwood. In fact, the property was recently the subject of a series of 30 million dollar upgrades, which provides some truly great incentives to become a member of the community.

Norwood is considered part of the Greater Boston area, and this property is great for professionals – even if they are commuting to nearby Boston, which is mere minutes away. One of the most noteworthy features of this development is its on-site train station. From this train stop, residents and members of the surrounding Norwood area community can quickly commute to South Station in Boston, which makes living at this property extremely convenient for commuters.
This town's positioning is very near perfect; not only is Boston in relatively close proximity but so is Providence. In fact, the distances are near equal – with a trip to Boston taking about 35 minutes by car and a trip to Providence taking about 38 minutes or so. For those that commute this way, it's very easy to drive in town, and with connections to I-90, I-93, and I-95 all available in town, most tenants will have no issue getting where they're going.

Everyone wants to come home to an apartment that has a plethora of amenities that can make life easier. The apartments at this property are all arranged in such a way as to make daily life pleasant and convenient. Of the apartments in this property, there are three types: one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom. Both the one- and two-bedroom units have three different configurations for tenants to select from, and the three-bedroom apartments come in a single orientation.
When a tenant is deciding on a one-bedroom apartment, the three different types are called the Beacon R, Boylston R, and the Fenway R. The Beacon is the largest and has a square footage of 730 feet per unit. These apartments can have a balcony or a patio and has a spacious design that includes a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. This unit also has a sizeable kitchen and a dining area that has room for several guests.
The second type of one-bedroom unit, the Boylston, is 690 square feet and has a similar shaping to the Beacon but has a slightly smaller living room, so it has a balcony or patio setup and a large dining room and enclosed kitchen unit. The bedroom is of the same sizing and it also has a walk-in closet similarly to the Boylston. The final option, the Fenway, is a smaller variation that has a patio, kitchen, large living room/dining room combo, and a spacious bedroom.
Two-bedroom options include the Cambridge R, Charles R, and Hanover R units. The Cambridge has an 850 square foot design and has a single bathroom, a standard and master bedroom, an enclosed kitchen, and a spacious dining area. Similarly to most units in the development, it also features a balcony or patio as well. The second option is Charles R – this model is 785 square feet and has similar dimensions but has a slightly smaller living room.
Finally, the third two-bedroom, the Hanover R has 925 square feet, and has a two-level design that also incorporates two bathrooms – one with a half-bath configuration. The patio on this type of unit is very spacious and even includes extra storage for the tenants.
Finally, the property also includes a three-bedroom option that comes in a single configuration. The Harvard R, like the Hanover R, is a two-level unit that has a large communal kitchen, a patio with storage, and a more than spacious living room and dining area combination.
When it comes to the amenities that are available throughout the property, these apartments all have hardwood floors, appliances with a jet black aesthetic, and cherry wood cabinetry with granite countertops. The appliances in the kitchen include a microwave, a stove/range top, a large refrigerator, and a dishwasher.
The community experience at this property is perhaps one of its biggest draws. Thanks to a massive renovation, residents at this Norwood apartment complex have some truly exceptional options on-premise. For those looking for physical activity, the property not only has a pool, but also has basketball courts, racquetball courts, tennis courts, and a playground for the children.
The grounds surrounding the building are beautifully landscaped, which makes it the perfect community to enjoy a walk. Residents who have dogs can even take their furry friend to the on-premise dog park to run around and get some exercise. For residents who enjoy grilling on a nice day, there is a picnic area in the community that has grilling options for the residents to make use of as well.
Indoors, residents will find that there is an internet café that provides Wi-Fi for the tenants to use as well as a clubhouse that can be used for indoor cooking, watching movies, and enjoying time with neighbors. There is also a dedicated TV lounge that residents can enjoy as well.
