The amenities are both mind-blowing and, these days, expected. Across the city, condo and apartment dwellers now have exceptional options popping up every month. Some of Boston’s real estate veterans weigh in regarding their favorites on the market—and coming in the next year or two.
Pier 4 (pier4bostonluxury.com) and Residences at St. Regis (luxuryboston.com). “Both of these are game changers for the marketplace; they offer incredible amenities but also a great lifestyle,” says Cohen.
The details: Situated next to the Institute of Contemporary Art in the Boston Seaport District, Pier 4 (100 Pier 4) is a luxe collection of boutique residences, offering magnificent harbor views in each of its 106 homes. Resident perks include personal concierge services, fitness center, pet-friendly facilities (we love the dog spa) and a private lounge with terrace overlooking the water—perfect for entertaining guests.
Price: Two bedrooms from $2.5 million
The details: The St. Regis Residences (150 Seaport Blvd.) is the last site to be developed on the Seaport waterfront, which means investors can lock in now for preconstruction design and price points. The biggest perks are related to five-star services from the hotel brand’s staff. Perks we love: ability to dock your boat, gourmet kitchens, spa-inspired baths and private access to restaurant and in-room dining services.
Price: Price upon request
The Sudbury (thesudbury.com), Raffles Boston Back Bay (rafflesresidenceboston.com) and 55 India (hacin.com). On The Sudbury: “This has a boutiquelike feel, as it has fewer than 60 homes. Clients will find amenities galore but also a sense of singularity. Private luxury!” says Dolley.
The details: At 480 feet and 45 stories, The Sudbury at Bulfinch Crossing (1 Congress St.) will boast 368 apartments and 55 condos. Amenities include a rooftop garden and lounge, concierge and hospitality services, private dining and catering kitchen, a pet spa, golf simulator and yoga room. And the penthouse views will make you never want to leave.
Price: Apartments from $2,880; condos price upon request
Winthrop Center (winthropcenter.com) and 1000 Boylston (bostonplans.org). “These two buildings will finally combine great finish and location. Right now, some of the best-finished buildings aren’t in the most desirable locations,” says Miller.
