Winthrop Square Tower Boston: Downtown Boston's Newest Luxury High Rise Wins City Approval

 

          

The long-awaited Winthrop Square Tower, located at the former site of the Winthrop Square Garage at 115 Devonshire Street in Boston's Financial District, has received full approval from the Boston Planning and Development Authority. Winthrop Square's developer, Millennium Partners, who also built The Ritz Carlton in 2001, Millennium Place in 2013 and Millennium Tower in 2016, proposed 500 ultra-luxury condos, 550 underground parking spaces and 750,000 of commercial office space. The first three floors of the Winthrop Square Tower will be home to a 12,000 square foot Great Hall, which would create a connection between Winthrop Square and Federal Street as well as 31,000 square feet of restaurant/retail space and 21,000 square feet of shared meeting space. The Winthrop Square Tower will rise 53 stories and 691 feet making it one of the tallest residential towers in the Northeast United States. Based on the success of Millennium Tower, Winthrop Square should have a massive slate of amenities and additional luxuries for residents that are starting to become more of the norm in Boston buildings, see: the recently announced Raffles Hotel and Residences in Boston's Back Bay. The Winthrop Square Tower will break ground in the Second Quarter of 2018 with anticipated completion in the First Quarter of 2022. To receive updates Winthrop Square, get on the Elevated List here

Cronin Development, developer of the long anticipated 150 Seaport Boulevard in Boston's booming Seaport neighborhood, has announced that the luxury tower will be home to the first ever St. Regis branded luxury residences in Boston. The St. Regis Residences Boston will feature 114 luxury waterfront condos at the former home of Whiskey Priest and Atlantic Beer Garden. Condos at The St. Regis Residences, Boston will run from one bedroom to penthouse units.

The latest news from 150 Seaport Boulevard comes on the heels of Raffles Hotels and Resorts announcing its intention in April to bring 146 branded condos, the first of their kind in North America, to 40 Trinity Place in Boston's Back Bay. In addition to Raffles, which is expected to start pre-sales this year, neighboring projects at Pier 4 Seaport and Echelon Seaport are selling quickly for top dollar in their respective pre-sales phases, which should bode well for The St. Regis Residences, Boston. 

St. Regis will also bring ultra-luxury signature services to 150 Seaport Boulevard including around the clock concierge and butler services. Additional 5-star amenities at The St. Regis Residences, Boston will include a swimming pool, spa, library, golf simulation room and health club, all exclusive to St. Regis, Boston residents. 

St. Regis Residences, a subsidiary of Marriot and Starwood, are internationally renowned for their luxury services and amenities. With locations in prime destinations such as Abu Dhabi, Deer Valley, New York City and San Francisco, the St. Regis Residences, Boston will bring a new level of luxury to the northeast luxury condo market. 

Designed by Howard Elkus of Elkus Manfredi Architects, The St. Regis Residences, Boston will feature a stunning design rising 22 stories in the curvilinear shape of a sailing ship that will surely improve the skyline on Boston's waterfront. In addition to 114 luxury residences, The St. Regis, Boston will also feature a signature restaurant on the first two floors that will be open to residents and the general public. The St. Regis Residences, Boston are expected to begin pre-sales in Fall 2018 with expected completion sometime in 2020.

Boston's new Luxury Condos in 2020

Boston has long been a thriving hub of business, arts, and culture, but the city proved its worth in the 2010s. These past ten years have been a period of massive transition – and the latter half of the decade was marked by several new construction projects in the luxury condo space.

A City Under Construction

Boston’s period of progress started in 2015 with the opening of 22 Liberty, a gorgeous luxury condo development right on the Harbor in the Seaport District. The following year saw the rise of the Millennium Tower, a skyscraper that was once the tallest residential building in Boston before The Four Seasons was built. The next two years led to even greater developments - The Benjamin, The VIA, and Nema opened their doors in 2017, and 50 Liberty was constructed (right next to 22 Liberty) in 2018. 

Building on Previous Success

The luxury condo developments from 2015-2018 were certainly impressive, but they were just the beginning of Boston’s hot streak. 2019 was an incredible year for the luxury condo industry, with the completion of three stunning residence buildings in the past year alone.

Bostonians looking to live on the water flocked to Pier 4, a new property that was already 85% sold out by 2019 year’s end. The Four Seasons at One Dalton – which is now Boston’s tallest residential building - stands at an amazing 61 stories and gives residents a taste of life in historic Back Bay. While The Archer in Beacon Hill may not officially open its doors until later this year, this luxurious development is already seeing massive interest from would-be residents.

Forthcoming Luxury Condos

What is on the horizon for Boston’s real estate market? Luxury condos – and lots of them! The years 2020-2022 are looking to be just as bright for Boston’s upper crust, as many more developments are underway. 

In Seaport, condo hunters can look forward to the Echelon in 2020 and St. Regis in 2021. Those looking to live the modern life with a touch of old-fashioned charm can head to South End, where 100 Shawmut Avenue and The Quinn will be completed later this year. Luxury hotel and residences chain Raffles broke ground on their hotel and condo complex last year, with construction expected to be completed in 2021. And of course, those Bostonians that want to live in the humming Financial District can look forward to the opening of Winthrop Square Tower in 2022 (complete with a garage built by Millennium).
