NORTH OF THE MYSTICK SIDE

When New England was first settled by Europeans, the land north of the Mystic River was a densely wooded wilderness called “the Mystick Side.” In the early 1600s, a man named Ralph Sprague, armed only with a musket and rucksack, led his three brothers into that “uncouth wilderness of timber,” building a small settlement that would one day become Everett, Massachusetts.

The vision

To build a place where people can live, meet, and feel at home—a luxury base camp for their life’s adventure.

DISCOVERY BY DESIGN

Today, we’re living up to that tradition of courage, exploration, and discovery, by building the perfect homes for this city’s modern-day explorers. The Pioneer is the result of a collaboration between five award-winning design and development firms, working together to realize a single, collective vision.

"We kept coming back to the same question: how do we design a sense of discovery and surprise into the construction? By opening up different levels throughout, the building gives you hints of the spaces that can be found—as long as you’re willing to do a little exploring."

"We wanted to build a sense of wonder and excitement—communal areas that invite you to come inside and explore, where one area leads naturally into the next, offering glimpses of what’s hidden within."

"It feels timeless—understated design with wood planking and industrial touches, punctuated with charming accents: bright splashes of colors, reclaimed wooden features, even a canoe hanging from the rafters."

"The courtyard is massive—25,000 square feet, split into three distinct areas that lead naturally into each other: there’s a gathering space with an outdoor kitchen and games, a pool deck with chairs and a theater projector, and my personal favorite—a hilly green picnic lawn, surrounded by native trees and shrubs."

"Too often, people don't even know the name of their next-door neighbor. The Pioneer is about changing that—about creating a genuine, active community. There’s a self-serve beer keg in the Great Room; we welcomed Common Ground, a local coffee shop, right into our lobby; we’re even hosting weekly events, so everyone gets to know the people that live next door."

"This project was always special to us. Working with our incredibly talented partners, we were able to craft a brand identity that captures this area’s tenacious and determined spirit, while at the same time creating something new, fresh, and a little unexpected in this part of the city."
