Such Great Heights
Lupoli’s Latest Transforms Haverhill’s Skyline and Sets a New Bar for Luxury Living
Downtown Haverhill offers a little bit of everything: wafting aromas from local restaurants and cafes, eye-popping art and murals, and the serene backdrop of the Merrimack River. Now, it also features Salvatore Lupoli’s latest mixed-use project, The Heights at Haverhill.
It is hard to miss The Heights. The 10-story glass building stretches to the top of the Haverhill skyline and can be spotted from miles away. Lupoli says of his latest enterprise: “I knew I wanted to build something that stands out for its quality because, frankly, the residents of Haverhill deserve it. My team and I have been working very closely with Mayor [James] Fiorentini and the Haverhill City Council to not only meld with but improve the community around us.” One of these improvements came when Lupoli and his organization extended the Haverhill boardwalk by 250 feet. Note that it remains accessible to the public. Lawrence-based Lupoli Companies began construction on The Heights in October 2018, and now the building soars over Haverhill.
Each of the 40 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom units in the building features hardwood floors, high ceilings, bright floor-to-ceiling windows, energy efficient appliances, and open-concept spaces to accommodate furniture and friends. Despite certain commonalities, every apartment in The Heights is distinct. “There are no templates in the building,” Lupoli says. “We made sure that every unit has its own flair.”
The design of The Heights provides water views for almost every unit. “From the moment I laid eyes on the Merrimack River, I knew I wanted to develop this project centered around its proximity and the gorgeous views,” Lupoli says. To capitalize on those views, Lupoli and his team built massive walk-out decks placed directly over the boardwalk.
According to Lupoli, the noted restaurateur and founder of the famous Sal’s Pizza chain, “mixed-used commercial space is crucial for all of my projects. The Heights will have a restaurant on the bottom floor and a cocktail lounge on the top floor. I even removed the ceilings on the top lounge to support having firepits without breaking city code.” The restaurant, Bosa, is named after a small fishing village in the Sardinia region of Italy. Fittingly, the restaurant will serve Italian seafood. Upstairs, Bar Bosa will offer small plates, drinks and rentable event spaces. The two commercial spaces are currently scheduled to open by the end of the first quarter of 2021.
Amenities at The Heights aren’t limited to culinary pleasures. Residents can ditch their monthly gym fees and enjoy 24-hour gym access within the building, and pet lovers can rest assured that their apartment is pet friendly. Tenants with dogs will have access to a dog park directly outside the building, and there will be a sophisticated filtration system for when pets relieve themselves. The Heights features more than 80 parking spots in a lot next to the building.
The single-bedroom apartments are set to rent for between $2,600 and $3,000 a month. “We know that this is a higher asking price than other options in Haverhill,” Lupoli says, “but we are focused on making The Heights the most luxurious living experience that Haverhill has ever seen. Our mission is to ensure that we inspire other developers to create more quality in future projects in Haverhill.”
Apartments are currently being preleased on a first come, first served basis. “We currently have over 100 inquiries to view apartments and see the project,” Lupoli says. The Heights began taking preleasing requests during the first week of August, and the Lupoli team expects residents to begin moving in during September.
