August 2, 2016, WOBURN, MA – The Dolben Company, Inc. (“Dolben”), is pleased to announce that McKay Apartments has begun leasing. McKay is a 32-unit luxury apartment development located at 131 McKay Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. McKay is owned by Beverly Crossing, a locally-focused real estate development group that creates, owns, and operates residential communities in Beverly. Construction on McKay began in March 2015, and the first apartment homes are now available for occupancy. The community has generated a tremendous amount of local interest, due to its heritage within the neighborhood.

The original brick school building at McKay was built in 1907, and has been fully renovated to retain the old world exterior charm, soaring ceilings, original stair cases, and wood floors. The addition of 13 newly constructed, luxury townhomes completes the project. McKay is nestled on two acres in a quiet, yet vibrant neighborhood adjacent to Shoe Pond and The Beverly Golf & Tennis Club. Accessible to U.S. Route 1, 128, and 1A, the property’s location allows for convenient access to numerous retail shopping and dining opportunities.

Apartment and townhouse interiors include high end finishes, in-home washer and dryer, and stainless appliances. The original school building offers generously-sized windows with high ceilings, welcoming an abundance of light. Many homes have views of Shoe Pond or golf course. Within McKay there are an array of floor plan styles, including one-bedroom, one-bedroom with den, and two-bedroom luxury apartment homes. The brand new townhomes feature two-story one-bedroom living with private courtyard entrances and the feel of a contemporary row house, offering privacy with the convenience of community amenities steps away.

Resident amenities include a fitness center, community gardens, bright and ample interior hallways, and a community room for gatherings.  Residents are able to pay their rent online and submit service requests via a resident portal.  Current rents at McKay range from $1,835/month to $2,625/month.

Chris Koeplin, Vice President of Operations at Beverly Crossing, noted, “Our team has taken great care to incorporate the original details of the McKay School while creating 13 new modern townhomes to complement the school building into our newest community. The unit finishes and amenity spaces were all designed with the needs of today’s renter in mind, and we are delighted with the finished product.”
