The Icon: Bringing Forward Thinking Living to Brighton

An environmentally concious rental community proposed for Brighton is hoping to become an icon in the area and create a new and improved gateway to Western Avenue. 

The project, called The Icon, proposed for 530 Western Avenue in Brighton is hoping to bring luxury, community and environmental design at below average rent prices. 

Proposed by The Mount Vernon Co, the 132 rental units will provide excellent access to downtown Boston as well as being close to Cambridge, Watertown and Chestnut Hill. 

The building amenities will include, an indoor/outdoor rooftop fitness center, a common function room and a roof deck overlooking the Charles River. It will also have a bike repair room to accompany the 132 free bike spots and an onsite collaborative works space. 

Some of the features that really make the building stand out are the sustainable building products that will be used, vitamin C infused shower heads and products to encourage restful sleep. 

Studios will start around $2,000, one bedrooms around $2,600 and three bedrooms around the low $3,000 range. 

The company behind the proposal hopes to utilize the area and set new standards for inspired luxury living while still being affordable. 

The building is designed by architects, Prellwitz Chilinski Associates and is scheduled to be completed by the spring of 2018.
