The LANCASTER is a unique building that has been characterized as “the nicest building to be constructed along Brighton’s Commonwealth Avenue in the past 70 years.” The substantial structure has been designed in the English Jacobean style and replicates the best of Commonwealth Avenue’s historic architecture and blends seamlessly into the overall neighborhood context. The building features five stories of residential condominiums above a heated parking garage that will accommodate 55 vehicles and bicycle storage.
The LANCASTER derives its name from the renowned British Royal Air Force airplane. Powered by four Rolls Royce engines, the aircraft proved to be among the finest of its day – flying faster, higher, and farther than all of its competitors. The condominiums at the LANCASTER have been inspired by this spirit of excellence.
