Winthrop Center Construction Update

Winthrop Center

Breaking ground in October of 2018, Winthrop Center is the largest investment for a single project in Boston. The 1.3 million square feet, 53 story, 500 unit luxury condo building – which will also offer office space – is expected to be ready for occupancy in 2022. Winthrop Center will be Platinum LEED Certified upon completion which will reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by as much as 80% compared to a standard building of its size.

During its initial planning phases, developers had planned a “Great Hall” to be lined with retail storefronts and restaurants. Since breaking ground the “Great Hall” has been revamped to connect Devonshire and Federal streets and has been dubbed “The Connector”. According to developers, “The Connector” is modeled after Boston’s numerous college campuses that are laid out to encourage spontaneous interactions with the people you see on a regular basis but don’t necessarily know. “The Connector” features large TV screens, removable furniture, and will act as a lobby most of the time but will be available for events.

    Penthouse at 100 A Street Hits Market for Record Asking Price of $5,250,000

     

    The past year in the South Boston luxury condo market has been record setting with 3 sales over $2,000,000 and 22 sales topping $1,500,000. However, the newly listed Penthouse at 100 A Street, a boutique 8 unit new construction condo development, is attempting to shatter the previous record of $2,150,000 set in early 2018 by a condo on Farragut Rd. With an asking price of $5,250,000, Unit PH boasts $3800+ square feet of living area, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, private elevator entry, 2 garage parking spaces and a massive roof terrace. The Penthouse will also have Wolf, Sub Zero and Asko appliances along with smart home technology. At nearly $1,381 per square foot, the Penthouse would crush the previous South Boston record by over $3,100,000. 100 A could potentially set two South Boston condo sales records with another 2 bedroom unit under agreement in the building at $2,200,000. Ideally located at the former home of My Diner a short distance from Boston's thriving Seaport and next to other successful luxury condo developments Port 45 and 14 West Broadway, 100 A Street counts location as one of its most valuable attributes. Stay tuned for sales numbers, closings at 100 A should start in the first quarter of 2019.

    Boston No Fee Luxury Apartments: Complete List of No Fee Luxury Apartment Buildings

     

    It's that time of year again when prospective tenants are looking for new homes. Whether you are looking to move as soon as possible or by September 1st, the fees associated with signing a new lease and moving expenses pile up quickly. Typical apartment leases in Boston require four payments up front, these include: 1) First Month's Rent; 2) Last Month's Rent; 3) Security Deposit; 4) Broker Fee. The amount of the security deposit and broker fee can vary, but more often than not, you are coming out of pocket for four payments, each equal to one month's rent. For an average priced 2 bedroom unit in Boston, this could add up to $16,000 or more. Don't cringe yet, Elevated's leasing team places clients in full service buildings where the costs are FAR LESS burdensome. Most of the new buildings in Boston only require a $500 deposit to hold a unit and first month's rent upon move in. They also pay your broker! Let us save you $10,000+! Take a look at our comprehensive list of buildings in the South End, South Boston, the Seaport and Boston Landing that are currently offering specials and paying full fee.
