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.

    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.
