Nauset Completes Mixed-Use ‘The Postmark’ 50 Unit, Luxury Condominium ComplexOctober 19, 2021
READING — The final touches have been applied by Nauset Construction to The Postmark, a mixed-use complex developed by DiBiase Homes and Matrix Property Group. Nauset constructed 50 luxury residential units – which were 90% pre-sold – and preserved the façade of the historic 1918 US post office while transforming the century-old building into 8,000 square feet of commercial space that will feature a ground-floor restaurant. Located at the junction of Haven and Sanborn Streets in the heart of Reading’s bustling downtown commercial business district, The Postmark is just steps away from the MBTA Commuter Rail Haverhill Line.
The Development Team and O’Sullivan Architects of Reading worked closely with the Massachusetts and Reading Historical Commissions to create a design that preserves the Georgian Revival style façade and Corinthian columns, as well as the exterior curved stairways at the front entrance. The five-story contemporary-style residential addition was constructed using a combination of brick and stone at the base and clapboard siding and wood details to replicate the classic character of the original post office.
The one- and two-bedroom condominium homes feature open floor plans, designer-curated luxury finishes, an abundance of natural light and energy-efficient appliances. Homeowners enter The Postpark through a dedicated and professionally landscaped courtyard and have access to expansive common amenity space, a private gym, and a large resident-only roof deck located on at the 5th floor penthouse level.
