About the Watch Factory
The historic Watch Factory complex, located along the Charles River in Waltham, Massachusetts, consists of approximately 400,000 square feet of space in 22 interconnected buildings. The Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival style complex was constructed by the Waltham Watch Company over half a century starting in the 1860s. The Watch Factory is characterized by a series of narrow wings with regimented rows of windows designed to maximize daylighting for the detailed production of watches. Watch City Ventures LLC, an affiliate of Boston based developer Berkeley Investments, acquired the property in May 2007. Berkeley then oversaw the multiphase redevelopment process consisting of the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the complex into a vibrant mix of office, residential and retail uses with riverfront amenities.
The three phases of the project include:
170,000 SF of brick & beam office space with a new pedestrian bridge connection between the two office buildings, a fitness center and a Waltham Watch Company history exhibit.
96 loft-style apartments and a 2,600 SF restaurant with riverfront dining and outdoor seating.
67 loft-style apartments and structured parking.
