Belmont Chambers Cooperative

Coop Housing since 1985


The Building

A well-maintained and quiet building, Belmont Chambers consists of (4) studio units (approximately 400 sq. ft.) intended for one person, (8) one-bedroom units (600 sq. ft.) which are available in two configurations are intended for 1 to 2 people, and (4) two-bedroom units (800 sq. feet) are intended for families and couples.

Each unit has a floor to ceiling height of 8 feet, wall to wall carpeting, linoleum in the bath and kitchen areas, dishwasher (except studios), garbage disposal, cable TV hook-up, storage area, energy-efficient heat and air-conditioning (at no additional fee). Several parking spaces are directly behind the building, and laundry facilities, and bicycle storage are also available to all residents on-site.

When the building was renovated in the 1980s a number of features were included to make the building as energy efficient as possible. Some experimental features have not been supported over time but passive features such as the lobby design and the significant amount of insulation, as well as improvements in the efficiency of the heat pumps have maintained the building’s energy efficiency at a fairly high level.

Located diagonally across the street from the Symphony Road Gardens and steps from Symphony Hall, the Prudential Center, and Fenway Victory Gardens, there is convenient access to the MBTA's Green and Orange lines, and the #1, CT1, and #39 bus lines.

The lobby is where we have Cooperative meetings and occasional social events.
