The Charlestown Ropewalk is a National Landmark and the last standing ropewalk facility in the United States. This quarter-mile long building was completed in1838 and produced most of the cordage for the US Navy until the Naval Yard closed in 1970. Residents of Ropewalk will enjoy a thoughtfully designed exhibit space with photography and memorabilia dedicated to the
building’s fascinating history and restoration.

The developer has woven original elements of the factory into the composition without sacrificing form or function. An artful blend of a subtle color palette and sophisticated finishes with raw materials — granite, brick, steel and wooden beams — produces a refined yet dramatic effect, imparting a feeling of gravitas uncommonly found in residential apartment buildings.

For more than a century a gas-lit tree-lined walkway informally known as “Flirtation Walk” ran parallel to the Ropewalk. Today residents will enjoy this restored pathway adorned with gas lights, benches and trees.

Transportation options are abundant for Ropewalk residents.
