Introducing CALA |1060 Broadway, Somerville, Massachusetts

We are thrilled to introduce CALA a new and truly inspired living opportunity at 1060 Broadway in Somerville, Massachusetts.

When Sebastian Mariscal responded to the City of Somervilles RFP to redevelop the former Powder House Community School a brutalist building with little light and connection to the landscape he saw an opportunity to reunite 4 elements that feed the soul: Community, Architecture, Landscape & Art.

From a building built of concrete and steel, Mariscal has carved beautiful and rich living spaces, private canvases on which its inhabitants will build their own life experiences. The ceilings are high, the materials are rustic and warm, and, while all different, the layouts support both quiet and animated time at home. Using green roofs and lots of glass, Mariscal has made a seamless connection between the inside and out. Designed to maximize green space, there are public, semi public, and private outdoor spaces, offering every resident multiple ways to be outside. And woven into the exterior of the building are over 70 panels on which artists will make public art. Over time, CALA will increasingly be filled with murals and other types of creative expression, creating an Urban Museum that does not require a ticket to get in.

CALA was designed to be engaging, to offer opportunities for human interaction and to live a more joyful life. We hope you will take a moment to come and learn more about the project and experience the CALA concept for yourself.
