Condos Over Houses in Boston

The Boston Globe recently acknowledged what many in Massachusetts already know. 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 13 percent through the first five months of the year, compared with a 6 percent increase for single-family homes, according to the Warren Group, a Boston firm that tracks real estate.Statewide, sales of single-family homes declined almost 4 percent, compared with the same period in 2013, while condo sales rose 9 percent.

In downtown Boston, average price per square foot of $728 set a record in the second quarter, the Boston data firm LINK reported, 12 percent higher than the same period last year.

And the average square-foot price for luxury units, which include concierge services and other amenities, rose nearly 15 percent, to $1,188.

Parking Lot to Condos

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.”

Demolition Begins on Jae’s Restaurant, on Stuart Street, in Boston’s Bay Village

Almost 10 years after

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.

Gloria Estefan Buys Condos Fenway

Symphony Court in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood
Latin Music Diva, Gloria Estefan, has purchased a new two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood for $1.1 million.
symphony
Estefan purchased the home for her daughter who is a freshman at the Berklee College of Music.  The home is a 1,473-square-foot unit on Westland Avenue near Symphony Hall and is located in the 48-unit redevelopment of a 1910 brick & limestone building dubbed “Symphony Court.”

Some of the features of the building:

  • 9′ to 11′ ceilings
  • 5″ hickory hardwood floors throughout
  • Expansive energy efficient dual action tilt-turn windows
  • Recessed light fixtures
  • Solid core doors
  • Brushed nickel hardware
  • Intercom system

“She’s an amazing musician — the best of all of us,” Estefan said. “She plays drums, guitar, piano. 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. Take a short walk to Boston’s beautiful Back Bay and South End Victorian neighborhoods for the best shopping, dining and night life in the city. All are easily accessible by public transportation with stops on the Orange and Green lines.

Boston Harbor’s Seaport Neighborhood

pier-4-2Seaport dubbed today the “Innovative district” was once a muddy spot in Boston Harbor and then a thriving shipping area and then morphed into a decrepit no-man’s land of parking lots and abandoned warehouses in the mid-1900s.

With the vision of the city Father’s in the late 1990’s it has developed into a hotbed of development both commercial and residential with many being mixed use projects.
