Vibe: When I set foot in the Atmark a few Saturday mornings past, the lobby was jumping. Imagine the vibrancy of a hotel lobby engaged in a busy check-in, or a successful health club scanning countless members entering just after work. Had I been a little less alert, I might have thought I was in a downtown area rather than a moderately secluded industrial part of West Cambridge.
Amenities: A variety of amenities were easily accessible near the apartment complex’s main entrance, including a gym, a 24-hour yoga studio, a wine bar area with a billiards table, and two computer stations. Undoubtedly my favorite amenity in my new building tour, a cinema-style HD theater with stadium seating practically begged me to immediately reserve it for a Red Sox opening day party. A number of other great amenities that I didn’t immediately notice were also found close by: the outdoor swimming pool with sun terrace and private cabanas, the outdoor lounge with fire pit, and, of course, the upscale indoor-outdoor sky lounge with a bar, two-way fireplace, and city views.
Additionally, the 428-apartment Atmark has areas for residents to take care of their pets (a groom room and bark park), their bikes (parking and repair stations), their business commitments (private meeting rooms), and even their extra belongings (additional storage for a price). The office staff is happy to respond to resident requests and handle package deliveries during the day; at night the Atmark has a concierge.
