Home of the Week: Mio opens doors to renters in Weymouth, steps from commuter rail stop

 The proximity to public transportation is one of the perks offered in a complex that leases studios up to condo-like units with three bedrooms and two baths. The development, by John M. Corcoran & Co. and Marcus Partners, also includes 6,000 square feet of retail space. One building is complete; the other two are scheduled for delivery in January and April.


The model featured here is a third-floor one-bedroom unit of about 715 square feet. It can best be envisioned as two parallel lines where one houses the public spaces, and the other is the private home. Stepping inside via the keyless, smartphone-enabled entry, one views a closet on the right, and to the left is the kitchen, where the cabinetry forms a U shape, making one feel as if it is offering a welcoming embrace.


The kitchen has white quartz counters, a backsplash of white subway tiles in a herringbone design, and two levels of cabinetry with a melamine fa├žade. There is an electric stove, and a sink is embedded in one leg of the U, positioned so it looks out to what is essentially an open floor plan area. The appliances,        which include a dishwasher, are stainless steel. Sleek pendant lights              hang over the counter.


The room flows to a dining area with space for four at a narrow table and ends in a living area hunkered down next to the wide, muntin-less casement windows. The unit features manufactured hardwood flooring in a planked design.

A door on the right side of the living area connects to the second parallel line: the bedroom suite. It starts with the 141-square-foot carpeted bedroom, where two windows provide a generous helping of natural light. The room flows into a walk-through closet before a door opens into the full bath.


The shower-only bathroom has porcelain tile flooring, a cultured-marble single vanity with a mirrored backsplash, and a tile shower surround. There is a linen closet near the shower, and on the opposite side of the bathroom sits the washer/dryer closet.

Moving into the Mio means access to a fitness room and a top-floor community room with a beer tap, Ping-Pong table, kitchen area, and television lounge. Abutting the community room is a roof deck with two fire pits, lounge seating, and a dining area.   Also, there is a dog run, pet grooming station, and remote-office space with business-class Wi-Fi.


Mio is a smoke-free community, and some of the bigger units come with balconies.

Tenant services include 24-hour package acceptance, door-to-door trash service, around-the-clock maintenance service, on-site management, Nest thermostats, and complimentary Wi-Fi in public spaces.

For more information, contact the leasing office at 

mioweymouth.com or 781-337-3232.

More Championships: Corcoran Management at Maintenance Mania 2019!

RHA Boston’s annual Maintenance Mania event showcases the best of skill, precision and speed among many of the maintenance technicians who keep Boston area apartment communities running strong. A series of maintenance tasks such as smoke alarm repair, key and lock adjustment, stove top cleaning and water heater repair among others. This event is not just a great chance for maintenance staff to showcase their talent and skills, but it also offers them a chance to compete for the National Championship at the NAA Conference and Exposition next June right here in Boston!

Since the events inception, Corcoran Management has put forth many skillful contestants from our maintenance teams, along with a plethora of spectators to cheer them on. Back in 2012, our own JP Davis claimed victory at Maintenance Mania here in Boston, and was selected to compete in the national competition against the best of the best from around the country. While JP didn’t take home the first prize, it was a truly incredible experience being recognized as one of the elite maintenance workers in all of the country!


This year, we are happy to announce that another one of our Corcoran incredible maintenance men will be heading back to National Qualifying with a chance to compete for the national title. Josh Perez of Pelham Apartments cleaned up and took home the most awards at Maintenance Mania along with the overall first place prize! Congratulations to an incredible performance by Josh – and we cannot wait to see what he does next time as he hopes to compete for the grand prize!

 

We also wanted to give a big thanks and shout out to all of our competitors. That list includes Alex Herrera, Chris Carlton, Mike Flaherty, Angel Figueroa, Alan Moraes, Luciano Cordeiro, Andy Cyr, Will Rivera-Padilla, Corey Wooten and Matt Didio. All of them did an amazing job representing Corcoran. One final shout out goes to all of our spectators who took time out of their busy schedules to come cheer for our guys competing. Corcoran even took him the top spirit award amongst the other management companies competing at Maintenance Mania. A sweep in the competition, and a sweep in the spirit!

Now Leasing: Station Row Apartments in Providence!


Within the multifamily rental industry, one trend has shaped development over the last five to ten years: transit-oriented communities. With the rising costs of automobiles combined with constant highway congestion in major cities, public transit continues to be a popular choice for urban commuters.


We at Corcoran are happy to introduce Station Row, a new sleek community that is located in downtown Providence adjacent to Providence’s Amtrak and MBTA station. Featuring 169 studio, one, two and three bedroom apartment homes, Station Row was built to promote and cater to those who live an active and outgoing lifestyle in one of New England’s coolest and vibrant cities. As rents continue to rise in Boston and it’s immediate surrounding communities, many folks are flocking to Providence to capture that same big-city life, but without the price tag of Boston.


When you call Station Row home, you are just a two minute walk to Providence Station. Whether you are a train commuter to Boston, or venture down the Amtrak Northeast Corridor to destinations such as New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore or Washington DC – Station Row’s location is perfect for you. Interstates 95 and 195 are also a short drive from the community.


Location isn’t the only benefit of Station Row. Our amenity package includes a state-of-the-art fitness facility, yoga studio, roofdeck with sweeping views, pet washing station, and concierge. Each apartment is built with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, plank flooring, walk in closets and more!

Summer at The Mastlight

Well hello friends - it's been a while since we have shared any news and updates on the south shore's newest luxe-style apartment rental community, The Mastlight. When leasing began back in late December 2017, we knew that the our one-of-a-kind amenity package will be something that leaves residents and their guests in awe. Well, just about 6-months later, that vision has become reality! 

The Mastlight's outdoor amenities include a luxury South Beach resort-style swimming pool and patio area complete with sun-protective cabanas, lounge chairs and plush landscaping. Just beyond the ivy-protected pool fence sits an outdoor television and fire pit area, the perfect compliment for a mid 80's summer day and night. 

We were so happy to open up the swimming pool area this past weekend to our new residents and their guests. Stay tuned, we will be posting photos shortly!
