CHARLESTOWN, MASS. — Developer Berkeley Investments has begun work on The Graphic, a modular, mixed-use project located at 32 Cambridge St. in Charlestown. The apartment building will be constructed of 129 modular boxes, each of which are 65 feet long and weigh approximately 30,000 to 35,000 pounds. Each box requires 20 minutes to be lifted into position and 14 boxes on average can be placed daily. The Graphic will include 171 residential units spanning two buildings and 4,000 square feet of retail space. Amenities at the development will include a lounge, club room and bike storage facilities as well as a private courtyard for residents and a roof deck with skyline views of Charlestown and Boston. The project is expected to be completed by October 2018. Berkeley Investments is The Graphic’s developer; ICON Architecture, Inc. is the architect and Tocci Building Corporation is the general contractor.
