All 149 guest rooms have been redesigned by New York design company, Dash Design. These rooms have been redesigned from head to toe to add more of a luxury feel and a modern twist. They’ve started completely fresh by adding new bedding, custom-designed bedside tables and even a Google Nexus tablet that features a virtual concierge app that provides instant access to hotel amenities and services such as room service or dog walking appointments!

The second suite will be called The Terrier Suite. This theme was inspired by the rich athletic, academic and cultural legacy of Boston University, a neighbor to Hotel Commonwealth. The last themed suite will be called The Loft. This suite will be inspired by the Boston arts neighborhoods like Fort Point Channel, Reimagining the concept of a “Presidential Suite”.

The expansion of the luxury Hotel Commonwealth will extend the existing building over the parking lot in back of the hotel that’s facing Fenway Park. There will be a footbridge built to connect the current Hotel and the new building that will include:

Is the Millennium Tower really Boston’s tallest luxury building out of the entire city?

The Millennium Tower located at 426 Washington Street claims to be the Boston’s tallest luxury building in all of Boston…but how do you know for sure? There is reason to believe that the 45 Province Tower located at 45 Province Street in Boston only a couple streets over from the Millennium could in fact be the same height, or even slightly taller.

45 Province Tower and Millennium Tower

45 Province Tower and Millennium Tower

The Millennium Tower claims to be the tallest tower in Boston standing at 685 feet tall, according to their website. An article by Bostinno, the Boston Redevelopment Authority has different measurements for the Boston tower measuring in at 625 feet. In comparison to the Millennium Tower is 45 Province Tower, Boston’s “second tallest” tower in Boston and is only streets away standing at 386 feet.

Since there is a 239-foot difference in height between the two towers, nobody has ever tried to make the argument that 45 Province Tower could in fact be taller than the Millennium. This becomes questionable when you look at the different elevation levels of where the two buildings are located. If you look on Google’s National Elevation Data website and plug in the two locations of the towers, you can see that 45 Province Tower is in fact built on a surface that is significantly more elevated compared to the Millennium Tower which is built on a flat, leveled surface. When adding the elevation of 45 Province Tower to the to the height of the building, it’s easy to see why the assumption could be made that 45 Province Tower is in fact taller than the Millennium.

The question we all want to know, Is The Millennium Tower really the tallest building in Boston or is 45 Province Tower? Unfortunately we aren’t able to say for sure. But we have been able to conclude that by adding the difference in elevation to the height of 45 Province Tower, The Millennium could in fact measure out to be the same height or even shorter than the 45 Province Tower. When coming up with the estimated level of elevation for 45 Province, we came up with an extra 230-240 feet of height that could be added to the Tower’s initial height. Which would then make 45 Province Tower the tallest building in Boston.

Besides being significantly close to the height of the Millennium if not taller, 45 Province Tower was Boston’s highest selling condo building in 2014. This 32-story luxury apartment building got the Merit Award for Design Excellence due to its extraordinary structure. This building offers luxury condos and apartments that have huge bay size glass windows overlooking the Boston Harbor! Some of this buildings finest luxury features include a roof deck with an outdoor swimming pool and lounge area, a gym with a personal trainer available, a spa and a 24-hour concierge service. Not only could 45 Province Tower be the tallest building in Boston, but it’s also among one of the most luxury buildings with reasonable prices to match.

#Everett Casino Approved

The Massachusetts gambling commission gave approval to the revised proposal for a casino in Everett. This proposal reduces the price of the land Wynn Resorts pays and prevents hidden investors from profiting off the sale.

Rendering of proposed Resort/Casino

Rendering of Proposed Resort/Casino

The plans are that the casino/resort/hotel will be built on Monsanto chemical company site. The price of the property is now $35 million, which includes $10 million for cleanup.

A casino can have a positive effect on an area, from the hundreds construction workers of the initial building of the casino to the thousands of employees it will take to actually run the Casino/Resort. This along with the numerous support industries will boast our economy thus our greater #Boston housing market.

Invest in a Boston Home for the Long Term

According to the (NAR) National Association of Realtors one should only purchase a home or apartment (in our case a Boston Home) if you plan to live there for a least seven years. Anything less than that and you will lose a large amount of money. For the average person, (not the knowledgeable and experienced investor) it is better to buy property that you are actually going to live in and forget trying to get rich by flipping property.FlipHousesCover

Flipping properties looks great on Television, in fact there is one program that is dedicated to flipping Boston real estate and it looks so simple. Do not believe it. This is an art in itself and unless you partner with an experienced Realtor and/or investor leave the “flipping” to someone else.
