It seems there are always construction trucks and cranes erecting yet another office building or luxury apartment/condo building to complement some of the area's best restaurants, trendy bars and boutiques.

        South Boston's Washington Village 656 New Housing Units

        Washington Village in South Boston

         

        Welcome to one of South Boston's newest buildings: Washington Village! Yet another string in a long line of new properties to grace this up-and-coming neighborhood, Washington Village is nestled in Andrew Square, stretching from Old Colony Avenue to Dorchester Avenue. As an eight-building development, Washington Village will comprise 656 apartments and condos, with construction slated for summer of 2017. Located close to public transportation, this area makes it easy to commute to and from the city, while having quick access to the neighborhood's restaurants, bars, shops, schools, and businesses.

        Geared toward first-time home buyers, renters and long-time area residents, Washington Village aims to bring together a diverse mix of singles, couples, and families. Built on the site of a now-defunct industrial cluster, this community-based development will breathe new life into a neighborhood that has been forgotten in recent years. Situated in the Andrew Square neighborhood, this development will replace five industrial buildings that are currently empty. One business -- Drive In Paint-Mart on Dorchester Street -- is still active, but will be relocated to accommodate the new development.

        Washington Village Condo Features

        Here are some more features of this six-block, mixed-use development addressing middle-income housing needs:

        • 560 parking spaces
        • Nearly 100,000 square feet of retail space
        • Community open space totaling 45,000 square feet
        • 5,000 square foot park with more than 170 trees
        • Widened sidewalks
        • Middle-class apartments and condominiums
        • Grocery store and local retailers such as cafes and a pharmacy
        • Located a quarter mile from the Andrew Square MBTA Station
        • Car and bike sharing systems on-site

        There are three phases of construction as part of the development plan, with ground breaking occurring this summer. Total construction time will take five years from inception. Developers hope to bring back the economic vitality of Andrew Square, something that has been lost over the years. South Boston is becoming the place to live for young up-and-comers, budding professionals, and young families. Washington Village hopes to keep that trend going with the addition of these new units.

        Creating an additional 1,200 jobs, the Washington Village project will transform the area into a walkable neighborhood, making it easy for residents to stroll along the streets to access quality dining and entertainment.

        History

        Long before it was Washington Village, this area was discovered by Native Americans who called it Mattapannuck. Originally used as an orchard and pasture in Colonial times, a village was eventually created and named Little Neck. In 1850, it was renamed Washington Village in honor of George Washington, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. As the town became more and more industrialized in subsequent years, it was renamed yet again in honor of John Andrew, the governor of Massachusetts during the Civil War. Today, the effort to bring back the original name it had for so long is currently underway. The goal is to enhance and transform this South Boston neighborhood into a thriving community of green spaces, new trees, community gatherings, homes and new places to shop.

        Contact Elevated Boston

        Call Elevated Boston at 617-701-6300 or email us at info@elevatedboston.com to learn more about Washington Village. Get in now before the units go fast!

          4 Buildings Revitalizing the North Station Neighborhood

          Love Joy Wharf, The Hub on Causeway, Avalon at North Station

          Once considered just a place to catch a great game, park your car, or hit a local watering hole, North Station is fast becoming one of Boston’s hottest development markets. This so-called "blueprint for neighborhood-building" has been an abrupt one indeed, working in tandem to benefit residents, businesses, and developers alike, says The Boston Globe. There are four buildings in the works, with the intention of revitalizing the North Station neighborhood: Lovejoy Wharf, The Hub on Causeway, Avalon North Station, and One Canal Street.

          North Station is considered part of the North End, but Beacon Hill is just as close. It comprises the area around Causeway Street: the site of the TD Garden, where you can catch anything from a Celtics and Bruins game to one of many rock concerts and other performances. It's also home to a variety of nightspots and restaurants. The four new buildings are part of a revitalization plan that is slowly coming to life. 

          Lovejoy Wharf

          Lovejoy Wharf features 157 luxury condos with choice of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans as well as studios and a penthouse. It is nestled on Boston's North End Waterfront right next to Converse's new headquarters. It's within walking distance of North Station, TD Garden, Boston's historic North End and many restaurants, bars and stores of Downtown Boston. Here are some more amenities of Lovejoy Wharf Boston:

          • 157 condos
          • 15 stories
          • 250,000 square feet
          • Gym
          • Harborwalk
          • Ground floor retail space and restaurant
          • 24/7 concierge
          • 3/4 acre open space along waterfront
          • Walking distance of North End, Government Center, Beacon Hill and surrounding areas
          • Convenient access to North Station and highways

          Sales of Lovejoy Wharf North End have begun, with units starting at $750,000, so find out more about condo living in one of Boston's most desirable neighborhoods. Occupancy of Lovejoy Wharf condominiums is expected in Summer 2017.

          The Hub on Causeway

          This will be a 1.87 million square foot mixed-use development featuring three towers with retail, office, hotel and residential uses. Phase 1 of construction is currently underway, and is expected to wrap up in late 2018. Located at 100 Causeway Street in Bullfinch Triangle, The Hub will feature 10,000 square feet of outdoor space, including a new entrance to TD Garden and North Station, 540 underground parking spaces, 75,000 sq ft of office space, a cinema, and Star Market grocery store.

          Avalon North Station

          Avalon North Station is a 503-unit building with 38 stories, which is currently renting studios to three-bedroom units. Prices range from $2,475 to $5,235 per month. With plenty of green space, garage parking, parking concierge, and a fitness center, Avalon North Station is the perfect place to live right in the middle of all the action. Adjacent to TD Garden and North Station, this is indeed one of the city's tallest towers and the largest single residential building. Boasting many convenient amenities and breathtaking views of the downtown skyline and Boston Harbor, you can't go wrong living here.

          One Canal Street

          One Canal Street is a rental-only building that opened in summer 2016. Penthouses currently available range in price from $4,419 to $31,406. Featuring 320 luxury rental units, you get access to an urban grocery store on the first floor, plus two stories of parking for tenants on the second and third levels. Located between the West End and North End neighborhoods, you're in close proximity to TD Garden, Haymarket and North Station train stops, along with Downtown Crossing, the Financial District, the North End and waterfront area. You could even walk to Charlestown, and the Zakim Bridge is close by as well. One Canal has a roof deck, with fire pits and pool for balmy summer evenings.

            Need Parking? Try a New Construction Building

            Parking at Boston's new construction buildings

            If you're familiar at all with East Boston or South Boston, then you know that the parking situation is unbearable. It's nearly impossible to park anywhere convenient to where you need to be--whether that's your home, your work, or just going out on the town. If you're tired of commuting into those neighborhoods only to be faced with astronomical parking garage fees and non-existent on-street parking, we're here to tell you that there's a better way. Why not buy a condo in a new construction building? You get your own parking space guaranteed, and many of these new high-rises are within walking distance to the major hubs or at least have access to T stations, highways, and other transportation outlets.

            South Boston

            All new construction buildings in South Boston now require parking. Under new zoning rules, one parking spot is required for each one-bedroom unit. For 2+ bedroom units, 1.5 parking spots are required. Additionally, developers are now required to build two-thirds more off-street parking than before, according to the Boston Globe. Here are just a few of the projects providing extra parking spaces throughout the city:

            South Boston Transportation Center, currently under construction in the Seaport, will provide 1,500 new parking spots to help accommodate/alleviate the lack of parking in South Boston and Seaport.

            Buildings such as 14 West Broadway offer 24-hour valet services (in addition to underground parking spaces) to accommodate lack of parking. This luxury condo building is 11 stories tall with 47 units.

            Port 45 on 45 West Third Street offers one parking spot per unit. It features five stories and 105 units, with 109 garage parking spaces for residents.

            150 West Broadway offers one parking spot per unit, and two parking spots for each penthouse unit. This five-story condo building will feature 30 luxury condos and 33 on-site parking spaces.

            East Boston

            Similarly, developers in East Boston are also accommodating parking spots in new construction buildings.

            Slip65 at Clippership Wharf, slated for completion in late 2018, as well as 151 Liverpool Street, both offer one parking spot per unit. The six-story Slip 65 at Clippership Wharf, spanning 12 acres, will feature 300 garage parking spots for residents and 20 available for public use. 151 Liverpool, also six stories, will have 36 condos and corresponding parking spots.

            Parking: A Growing Concern

            The squeeze for parking has only been getting worse as more people clog the city streets of East Boston and South Boston. The problem is compounded in winter when the snowbanks take away more of the precious parking spots that people rely on to park at home or work. Just how many parking spaces are left in these neighborhood is anyone's guess. That's because Boston has stopped keeping track. The Massachusetts Port Authority estimated back in 2012 that there were 6,000 spaces in surface parking lots in South Boston, particularly in the Seaport District. It projected that in 2015, there would be only 750, according to the Boston Globe. Currently, no one is really sure how many there are now.

            Contact Elevated Realty

            How would you like to never have to worry about parking again? Call us to learn about any of the above new construction buildings in East Boston and South Boston. We're located at 174 Dorchester Street in Boston, MA 02127. Get in touch at 617-701-6300 or email us at info@elevatedboston.com. We would be happy to show any property to you.

              Is East Boston Waterfront the Next Seaport?

              In what has always been a gateway community, an adjunct to its big sister Boston and to a lesser degree the Seaport District, East Boston has quickly been shifting from forgotten sibling to the city's next big thing. Rental prices are reflecting the growing sophistication of East Boston, with average monthly rents climbing more than 40 percent in four years to hit a high of $2,255 last year, says The Boston Globe. This rise has brought the neighborhood in line with rental prices throughout the rest of Boston.

              Over the last several years, plans have been in place to add more than 1,000 new units, initially to drive down those high rent prices so it could attract the budgets of college students and budding professionals. Turns out, these modern waterfront developments are enhancing East Boston's allure as an up-and-coming community that rivals the popularity of the Seaport District next door, which is already well established as the hottest neighborhood in town. The amenities that make the Seaport District so appealing (prime waterfront location, across from downtown, right off the highway, a short T ride to the airport) are all the things that are making the same impression on the East Boston waterfront, points out Boston Magazine.

              Enter: Slip65 at Clippership Wharf

              One of those up and coming waterfront properties in East Boston is called Slip65 at Clippership Wharf. It's slated to be built between 2018 and 2019 and will be completed in two phases. Now, you can get in on the lively and beautiful energy that is Boston Harbor thanks to easy access to the serene Harborwalk area. Slip65 is the trendy place to live, with waterfront views, the latest designs, and every amenity you could want to complement your active lifestyle. It's just a five-minute water taxi ride from the Seaport or Downtown Boston. Not a bad way to travel! No traffic, no congestion, no stress. Other convenient, quick ways to get from here to there:

              • One-minute walk to the Blue Line T Stop. Get to State Street downtown in three minutes.
              • One stop to Logan Airport
              • Half mile to Downtown East Boston. Soon you'll be in the middle of the city's exploding arts and cultural scene from the Downeast Cider House to the landmark Santarpio’s Pizza. There are a number of trendy bars and the latest restaurants to choose from. It all depends on what you're in the mood for.

              Some say you can get the absolute best view of Boston from here. There are many reasons why you should get in on the ground floor for East Boston waterside living. Not only are the prices lower throughout the city, it's just a quick T ride to downtown, containing eclectic restaurants for the foodie in you and boasting a killer view of the Boston skyline, says The Boston Globe. It's no surprise, then, that East Boston is capturing the attention of young professionals, savvy families, and college kids. More and more people are making the migration across the Harbor to the next Seaport District in the making.

              Want to be a part of it? You can.

              Contact Elevated Realty

              Getting in on this amazing opportunity to become a part of this up-and-coming waterfront area is easy. Just get in touch with Elevated Realty at  617-701-6300 or email us at info@elevatedboston.com. Our headquarters is located at 174 Dorchester Street in Boston, MA.

                Lovejoy Wharf, What You Need to Know About the North End's Newest Building

                The North End in Boston is a destination young and old can enjoy -- a little piece of Italy transported right into the heart of the city. From its small pastry and coffee shops to its world-class restaurants and bustling boutiques, the North End has become synonymous with tradition, history, and, well, food to die for. Imagine living here and having access to the joys of the North End all the time? Now you can. Lovejoy Wharf is the North End's newest building, and it's making quite a buzz around town.

                Nestled right on the waterfront, the Lovejoy Wharf luxury condos capture Boston living perfectly. The views are breathtaking and the location is everything. You're within walking distance of the North End, Converse's new headquarters, North Station, TD Garden, and all the restaurants, bars and stores of Downtown Boston. Take a stroll on the Harborwalk along the waterfront when the weather is nice, gaze out at the water, have a picnic or just quietly read a book on one of the many benches. You can actually see TD Garden from the condos and walk there without having to pay the high parking fees. TD Garden is Boston’s premier sports and entertainment venue. It opened in 1995, welcoming more than 30 million people to see its events since then. It's the home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics, and plays host to a variety of concerts, sporting events, ice shows and more.

                Just as close is the North End, which just so happens to be the city's oldest residential community. Settled in the 1630s, the North End isn't big (in fact, it's only about .36 square miles) but it boasts more than 100 establishments and tourist attractions. A large part of its population is Italian American, evidenced by the many fine Italian restaurants and cafes located here. This charming Boston Landmark is also the spot for many festivals, parades, feasts, and historic sites that take place here throughout the year.

                Lovejoy Wharf, expected to be completed early this year, will comprise 162 luxury condos with choice of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans as well as a penthouse. Check out some more features and amenities of Lovejoy Wharf Boston:

                • 162 condos

                  Exploring West Broadway in South Boston

                  Like all big cities, Boston has its eclectic neighborhoods and pockets of people that really speak to the diversity and culture of the community. South Boston is no different. This urban neighborhood has a strong sense of history and tradition. What was once the base for George Washington's army to get the British out of Boston in 1776 turned into a working-class neighborhood at the height of the industrial revolution. Today, it seems to have found its place amidst the hustle and bustle of the city proper as a highly sought-after residential neighborhood, acting as a gathering space for working artists. It's home to about 35,000, offering many singles, couples and families an urban retreat.

                  A Bit of Background

                  West Broadway in particular is the place to be for young up and comers, established professionals, students and families. Its close proximity to T stations, beautiful views of the famed Boston Harbor and eclectic offerings of art galleries, museums, boutique shops and eateries make West Broadway a destination for many. Southie happens to be one of the oldest neighborhoods in the country, home to Dorchester Heights. It's got a booming real estate market that keeps expanding with the addition of more and more condos such as 150 and 170 West Broadway. And as the cornerstone of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, an Irish-American celebration of culture that can't be missed, West Broadway and its surrounding neighborhoods bring a history, charm and culture to the area that makes up the fabric of the city.

                  What Makes West Broadway Great

                  From Fort Independence Park to Savin Hill Park, the green spaces are what make up much of the beauty of the West Broadway area. There are 13 schools in South Boston, representing a fairly even mix of public and private. Their parents and the rest of the workforce seem to be keeping pretty busy. In fact, the unemployment rate in South Boston is 16 percent lower than the national average, with the per capita income being 59 percent higher than the national average. West Broadway is also host to Broadway Station, a vital transportation hub which consists of the Red Line subway and three MBTA buses with multiple downtown destinations.

                  Those are all great statistics but what about the things people REALLY care about? Food! Living on West Broadway is a culinary treat in itself, peppered with award-winning eateries, cafes, wine rooms, pizza joints and more. Enjoy a wine tasting at Social Wines at 52 W. Broadway, grab a croissant and a Guglielmo Coffee at Broadway's Pastry and Coffee, eat a slice of cheese at Pizzeria 260, have a business lunch at Stephi’s in Southie, or fill up on some tacos, oysters, and tequila at Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar.

                  If you feel the need to work off all that food or you're looking to incorporate a healthy fitness regimen into your daily routine, you won't be at a loss. There's Simply Barre at 118 W Broadway where you can build up your core strength and stamina thanks to a combination of ballet-inspired exercises for a total body workout. Or, get centered at South Boston Yoga, located at 36 W Broadway.

                    Why Getting in Early on Seaport New Construction is Vital

                    Living in the Seaport District of Boston is becoming more and more prestigious. Killer views, quick access to the T and highways, and immersion in the culture and entertainment that makes the city so great...these are all wonderful reasons to invest in Seaport real estate. And with so many condos slated for construction over the next two years (22 Liberty, 50 Liberty, Pier 4 and 150 Seaport Boulevard), it's easier than ever to call Boston home. However, if you think you have all the time in the world to decide and wait it out, you're wrong. Getting in early on Seaport new construction is crucial to securing your spot and saving money.

                    Let's explore those reasons in more detail.

                    Save $$$

                    Saving money is always a good thing, especially when you're already considering the high costs of city living. Of course, the money is well spent due to the conveniences, views and prestige that comes along with these addresses; but, it would be nice to save cash where you can. It's possible to get in under $2,000 per square foot before construction, whereas if you buy after construction is complete, prices can jump from $1,800 to $1,900 PSF to as high as $2,400 to $2,500. Limited inventory for the foreseeable future with regard to condos is driving prices up, so reserving a unit early is essential for buyers.

                    In addition to the outright cost savings, you can also take advantage of any promotions and specials the developer may be offering at that early juncture, such as free upgrades, rebates, closing cost assistance, the right to lease your suite, and more. These perks give you flexibility as an investor and boost your ROI. Buying in the first phase of pre-construction, you get access to the most affordable wave of pricing, also known as “Schedule A” pricing, which can be between five and 10 percent off the list price. If you're looking for the absolute best condos in the entire building, though, you may have to forego that notion because those units typically are saved for last to command the highest prices.

                    Another benefit? As the owner of a pre-construction condo, you're banking on the appreciation of the property once the land has been subdivided and all infrastructures and amenities are realized. According to LinkedIn, there is high investment potential for pre-construction in terms of price growth from purchase through development and completion, plus you can benefit from the market appreciation available should you hold the investment after completion.

                    Other Benefits

                    There are many more benefits of getting in on the ground floor of Seaport new construction, including:

                    • Instant equity, by the time your unit is complete, it will be worth more than you paid for it
                    • Leverage power to control 100% of the value
                    • Possibility of renting the unit to defer carrying costs and give you an additional source of income
                    • Access to new details about the property
                    • Ability to be part of the process and observe your unit come to fruition
                    • Potential to customize finishes in your unit
                    • Maximized incentives
                    • Peace of mind knowing you've secured a valuable piece of real estate in a tumultuous market before units are available to the “general public”
                    • Diversified investment strategy
                    • Tiered deposit structure
                    • Several price points available

                    There's something to be said about the excitement of getting in early on pre-construction, of watching your "baby" come to life, nurturing it from infancy to adulthood, all as you rest easy knowing you've secured your spot and can have confidence in knowing where you'll be living come construction completion. If these benefits seem like a no-brainer to you, it's time to start looking into the condo of your dreams.
