Luxury Cambridge Condos Near Lechmere

Luxury Cambridge Condos Near Lechmere   Several luxury condo buildings were built during the 1980s real estate boom in East Cambridge close to the Lechmere T station.  The neighborhood offers proximity to the Green Line at Lechmere, the Red Line in Kendall Square, the Charles River, and is very close to Boston.  More luxury complexes were built or converted during the more recent boom. 

“Luxury” is hard to define – or at least is defined differently by different people.  For purposes of this post we’ll look at new or newer buildings in East Cambridge near Lechmere that have more amenities than many other Cambridge condos.

Today, Cambridge real estate buyers seeking concierge service, garage parking, modern finishes, and other amenities have a half dozen buildings to choose from within several blocks of the Lechemere station.

71 Fulkerson Street Cambridge – Spring Condos

Condos at 71 Fulkerson St, Cambridge Mass 

Condos at 71 Fulkerson St, Cambridge Mass

The condos at 63-71 Fulkerson Street, Cambridge – the Spring Condominiums – were created in 1987.

Cambridge real estate buyers will appreciate the proximity to Kendall Square, MIT, the Red Line and the Green Line, and the Galleria Mall.  There is convenient access from this side of the city to Memorial Drive, Storrow Drive, Route 93, Boston, and Logan Airport.

History of 71  Fulkerson St. Cambridge MA

There are four townhouses and 34 units in a reclaimed brick factory building.  All the marketing that I’ve seen for the complex refers to the building as a “former barrel factory”.  The Goepper Brothers established their barrel manufacturing business on Ninth Street – the former name of Fulkerson Street – in 1882.  The factory buildings were, if not at #71, right next door.  It was a large and successful operation.

Records suggest, however, that 71 Fulkerson was built in  1920 as a warehouse building for the Revere Sugar Refinery.

71 Fulkerson Street Cambridge MA Condos

The Spring Condos have varied layouts. Loft-style units, often with multiple-levels range in size from 532 s.ft. to 1225 s.f. and the townhouses are 1962 s.f. in size.  There are one and two-bedroom loft-style units.
