The Baker Chocolate complex
Boston Condo prices are competitively pressured upwards. However, a cheaper alternative in a nice neighborhood feel is The Baker Chocolate complex.
The 14-acre village along the Neponset River in Dorchester has some newer luxury condos that start at just $450,000. Whereby it is near impossible to find anything near $500,000 along the Charles. The owners in the old brick factory buildings get access to an to an indoor lap pool with a hot tub, a fitness facility, a conference room and a dog park.
Three of the buildings are being transitioned into 77 condos, with 58 of them in a six-story Romanesque Revival building built in 1891 and known as the Baker Mill. The developer is adding hardwood floors, some updated appliances, and even opening up some unused loft spaces on the top floor.
