Condos Over Houses in Boston

English: The en:Skinny House in the North End of Boston is an extremely narrow four-story spite house reported by the Boston Globe as having the “uncontested distinction of being the narrowest house in Boston”.

Condominiums are the superior choice over a home. No backyards, no garages, no privacy what many would call the American dream. Instead Bostonians are opting for convenience and location. No yard work means more time to play, or work. According to the Globe: Condo prices this year increased

Parking Lot to Condos

Posted 21 June 2014 | By | Categories: Boston Condos | No Comments

Condos near the metro bridge (Photo credit: Willem van Bergen) A plan for a $40 million India Street project call for 44 condos and some 4,000 square feet of restaurant/retail space on a 7,100-square-foot site that’s now a small parking lot. This would culminate into a  12-story luxury condominium building with one- to three-bedrooms from 600 square feet to 1,750 square feet which fills  in one of the missing “teeth” facing the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. “It’s really a connection of trying to bring the downtown in with the waterfront,” said Michael Durand, principal of the real estate development company. “There’s been a huge public investment with the Greenway, and now is the time for the private investment to come in and really make it work.” “There’s just been so much apartment development in the city recently that we feel there’s some strong demand for some new condominiums,” Durand said. The proposed 117-foot building’s height is within the recently codified 120-foot restriction for the Wharf District area known as the Town Cove, which is anchored on the southern portion by Broad Street. That restriction came out of a Greenway district planning study by the Boston Redevelopment Authority that calls for “preserving the scale, character and historic street patterns that mark Town Cove as a distinct and legible Boston neighborhood.” The post Parking Lot to Condos appeared first on Boston Luxe Market Analysis.

Posted 08 June 2014 | By | Categories: Boston Condos | No Comments

Almost 10 years after English: Boston’s Back Bay from the Longfellow Bridge (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Jae’s Restaurant, in Boston’s Bay Village neighborhood closed, the eatery’s long vacant home is coming down. Demolition will take place over the next 8 weeks said property owner, Boston’s Revere Hotel. Several delay’s and the overall economic conditions have stalled the development of the property since 2006. The Boston Redevelopment Authority originally approved the construction of an 8 story building that would contain 18 condominiums and over 33,000 square feet of ground floor retail spaces. That proposal was later shelved due to the real estate markets downturn. In 2012, Northwood Investors, owners of the Revere Hotel, bought the vacant building for $3.3 million. It is unclear as to what the Hotel plans to do with the vacant property.

And she can sing…She sounds very similar to me…I would’ve loved to play an instrument like Emily. When you’re a frontman for a band, there’s nowhere to hide. It took me a long time to get used to that. But music is my first love. I started singing when I talked. For Emily, since she was 2 or 3, she’d make drum sets from garbage pails and things.”   From the developer website: A walk through Boston’s Symphony/Fenway Cultural District puts you at the doorstep of the world’s most acclaimed cultural destinations: the Museum of Fine Arts with its new Art of the Americas wing; the incomparable Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and its new performance venue where every seat is in the front row; and Symphony Hall, home of America’s favorite orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra. And you haven’t even scratched the surface. Dine in a museum courtyard, or duck into an authentic ethnic restaurant.
