With more than 45 years in the suburban Boston commercial real estate industry, Cummings Properties has acquired its fair share of information from residents, business owners, and tourists alike and would be delighted to help you make an informed decision. Ranked as one of the “Top 100 Places to Live” by Livability.com, Beverly, Massachusetts is a historic seaside community located 22 miles north of Boston that offers many reasons to call this small city “home.”

In addition to a thriving commercial presence that contributes to a healthy and stable tax base, the city boasts a flourishing restaurant scene, several private colleges and secondary schools, critically acclaimed performing arts venues, galleries, shopping plazas, and countless recreational options, including beaches, marinas, parks, golf and tennis clubs, a regional airport, and hiking and biking trails. Beverly Main Streets enthusiastically promotes Beverly’s downtown and sponsors several popular annual events, including Homecoming, ArtsFest, BlockParties, New Year, and Downtown Trick or Treat.  Much of the livability Beverly enjoys is due to the presence of two highly regarded health care systems, Beverly Hospital a member of Lahey Health and North Shore Medical Center/Partners Health Care.  The city also has a new modern high school, which was completely renovated and expanded in 2011, and a new middle school currently under construction.

Fans of the Celtics and Bruins will appreciate the 25-minute train ride from one of Beverly’s five commuter rail stations to North Station, one of Boston’s major transportation hubs.  Highway access to Boston, Logan Airport, and the seacoast and mountain regions of Maine and New Hampshire could not be more convenient given Beverly’s proximity to Route 128, US Route 1 and I-95.

Beverly residents will appreciate the wide array of housing options available, as the city has been experiencing a housing boom with the recent construction of several single-family, condominium, and apartment developments, including Elliott Landing by Cummings.  Beverly’s aging and retired residents have a number of options as well, including the soon-to-be-built Vitality Senior Living facility at Dunham Ridge.  For business owner seeking to work close to home, Cummings Center, the 2.3 million square foot historic business center and Dunham Ridge, the 54-acre bucolic, pond side campus along Route 128, offer an abundance of commercial space options for businesses of all sizes.
