Grand Opening of Nova Residences in Brighton, MA

(Boston, MA, 08/28/17)

Gov. Charlie Baker and Mayor Martin J. Walsh praised the redevelopment of a Brighton office building as an example of how Boston needs to address housing demand.

The six-story Nova Residences on Commonwealth Avenue has 80 one- and two-bedroom units, including 10 affordable units, in an eight-story building that once housed Baker’s gubernatorial campaign headquarters. Rents range from $1,850 to $3,250.

“This project here that took an office complex and turned it into housing is exactly the sort of project that we need to see happening a lot more in communities around Massachusetts,” Baker said.
