Waterhead is ready for its close-up! Next in our Property Spotlight series, we wanted to set the scene at our Waterhead apartment community and focus in on the building’s craftsmanship and notable background. Located in Lowell, MA, Waterhead has a cinematic history, is full of unique features, and offers a wide range of impressive amenities.
Renovated from a centuries-old, historic corduroy mill, Waterhead seamlessly blends old with new. Each and every apartment within Waterhead showcases the building’s classic character and charm with original brick walls, high ceilings, restored details, exposed beams and timber, and large, mill-style windows.
Waterhead’s dedication to preserving the building’s industrial past is complemented by thoughtful design and high-end finishes throughout. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer/dryers, central air conditioning, crafted hardwood flooring, and open layouts offer luxury living just minutes from downtown Lowell for the ultimate in convenience and modernity.
Prior to Waterhead’s renovation, the mill was previously home to Ramalho’s West End Gym, a local boxing club that was frequented by Lowell’s own Micky Ward. A Lowell native and former professional boxer who competed from 1985-2003, Micky Ward was portrayed by Mark Wahlberg in the 2010 Academy award-winning film The Fighter. Based on the true events and family story of Ward and his half-brother, Dicky Eklund (played by Christian Bale), The Fighter was set in Lowell and features scenes filmed at the original Ramalho’s Gym where real-life Ward and Eklund trained and fought. As an ode to the building’s storied past and its Hollywood history, Waterhead showcases a handful of memorabilia from Ramalho’s and our on-site media room even includes an official movie poster of The Fighter!
