The companies held a topping-out ceremony to mark the completion.

The design has 250 housing units, including 124 studios and 126 one-bedroom apartments.

“Topping out” refers to a builder's placement of the final beam atop a structure.

There are 124 studios and 126 one-bedroom apartments at 60 Barra Road.

The four-story complex totals 201,000 square feet, with green space and amenities that includes a club house with a fitness center, yoga room, dog wash station, kitchen, game room, media room, library, study spaces, bar, and a mail and package room, according to Market Square Architects.

Additional amenities include a courtyard, golf simulator, raised garden beds and sunroom. There are wooded surroundings. The design is meant to focus on community-based living, according to a news release.

“60 Barra Road was designed and developed to provide a modern housing option for Biddeford’s diverse residents,” said John Laliberte, Reveler’s CEO. 

The project team included Market Square Architects in Portsmouth, N.H., Capone Iron Works in Rowley, Mass., Sargent Electrical Co. in Lewiston, Schlick Engineering LLC in Lakeville, Mass., Hermon engineering firm S.W. Cole and Bangor-based insurance firm Varney Agency.

Rockland Trust, a commercial bank based in Rockland, Mass., and Porta Capital Partners in Portland provided financing.

Barra Road is on Biddeford’s outskirts to the southwest. Neighbors along the road include health care and social service facilities.

The topping-out ceremony hosted Biddeford’s mayor, Martin Grohman, who signed the last steel beam before its installation. 

The development is scheduled to open in the spring of 2025. Preleasing is expected to begin this winter.

That will be about a year after Reveler and Penobscot General Contractors opened another large project, Armature at Hanover Works, a mixed-use development with 171 apartments and ground-floor commercial spaces at 52 Hanover St. in the West Bayside neighborhood of Portland.
