ABOUT The Overlook at St Gabriels

St. Gabriel’s is a 550-unit apartment community that will serve students attending Harvard, MIT, Boston College and Boston University. The project is located in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, MA on an 11-acre site that formerly housed the historic St. Gabriel’s monastery and church. Most apartments will come fully furnished with top-of-the-market finishes including solid surface counters, stainless steel appliances, hardwood-style flooring and upgraded lighting and cabinetry. Peak Campus has partnered with Boston-based developer Cabot, Cabot & Forbes on this adaptive re-use development that is slated to begin construction in 2018.

"Careful attention to detail has be spent to blend the classic and contemporary designs to create a property and experience like no other in Boston. This focus was carried through the thoughtful design of our unit types that offer a variety of efficient studios, one bedroom, two bedroom, three bedroom and four bedroom unit choices that will best accommodate a wide spectrum of renter price points and preferences. This is complemented by giving our residents the opportunity to live within an open, park-like oasis within a bustling urban area in Boston, without giving up an urban lifestyle."
