The Watson on East Howard will feature 140 residential units in mix of 1 and 2 bedroom units, amenity space and a lower level parking garage. We began demolition of the existing 2-story exterior brick building with a basement level that currently occupies the property in April 2017.
The new building will be named after Thomas A. Watson, assistant to telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell and founder of the engine company that was the predecessor of the Fore River Shipyard. Construction is scheduled for completion in July, 2018.
