This ain’t your college students’ Davis Square

There will be 184 apartments in Maxwell’s.

It isn’t the traditional Davis Square apartment living, that’s for sure. Now leasing for summer occupation, Maxwell’s Green is about as far from the Somerville triple-decker as you can get. This massive 184-apartment development includes urbane amenities like an onsite yoga and fitness center, club suite, theater, cyber cafe, roof deck, underground bicycle storage and garage parking with electric car-charging stations.

Location-wise, Maxwell’s Green is perfectly positioned by the community path, about a 10-minute walk from Davis Square and the Red Line T. Set around a common green, 62 units are currently up for leasing, with a further 122 units to be rolled out by the beginning of 2013. However, all exteriors and public spaces will be finished by initial move-in, so residents don’t have to live with dust and construction.

“This is the first highly ‘amenitized’ development in the whole of Somerville,” says Kyle Warwick, principal for Gate Residential Properties, which joined with KSS Realty to form Davis Square Partners for this venture. “Rents are competitive with Boston and Cambridge and the amenities outshine anything around here. We were able to do this because we had the space. It’s unique to find this large space in one of the densest cities in the world.”

There’s a reason why the five-and-a-half acre land parcel was sitting vacant. The area was a Brownfield — that is, polluted postindustrial-use land that needed regulatory cleanup before it could be reused.

“Residents didn’t like what was here before — an industrial wasteland,” says Warwick. “This development is good for Somerville as a whole.”
