Masonry beginning at Acadia on the Charles, and at the rate the masons are moving this should make for an interesting set of images over the next week or two. Although the address is 36 River St. in Waltham, Acadia on the Charles is part of the ever changing 1.8 mile Pleasant St. Corridor, that begins in Watertown Square. Seven hundred rental units come onto this market when they are all completed.

Who is moving to this area, that was once mostly industrial only just a decade ago? From a purely anecdotal standpoint, from behind a UHaul desk for example, some of the new area residents are from Hudson, escaping higher rents. Others are home sellers, waiting on the sidelines until more home buying becomes available. Some are from bedroom communities of Lincoln, Sudbury and beyond; empty nesters eager to cut down commute time to work or family.
