The architect and developer of Building Five have gone to great lengths to recycle and restore the historically significant heavy-timber wood frame building that was once part of the M.W. Carr frame factory. The renovation has resulted in nine open live/work lofts that range from studios to two-level penthouses with a build-out potential of three or more bedrooms. All are designed to be open and flexible to meet the needs of a new generation of creative users. Building Five Lofts is situated in one of the region''''s most unique urban settings?an enclave of four other historic loft buildings that comprised the M.W. Carr frame factory. Adjacent to the celebrated Minuteman Bikeway, Building Five stands on a peaceful side street, just steps from the lively restaurants, shops, & cafes of Davis Square & the Redline T stop. Just over the Cambridge line, Davis Square is one of the hottest?& coolest?communities in the Boston area, offering convenient access to Boston & surrounding towns.
