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.

Home of the Week: Mio opens doors to renters in Weymouth, steps from commuter rail stop
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 façade. 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.
Mio is a smoke-free community, and some of the bigger units come with balconies.
