Now under construction in Boston’s exciting South End, this nine-story boutique, 33-unit condo will bring buyers the benefits of a full-service luxury building, including a concierge, gym, residents’ lounge and garage parking, but with a more intimate, low-key feel. One of the more dramatic conversions underway in the city, The Lucas features a tasteful glass-and-steel addition on the Holy Trinity German Catholic Church and rectory—a stunning marriage of contemporary and classic architecture. The exterior of the Gothic-style structure will remain intact, but all interiors will be completely new and very sleek, and high-end amenities will complement the luxurious design. Two corner homes will have private entrances. The first three floors will be the Keely section, a tribute to the original architect; the Terrace units will be on the fourth floor with private outdoor space; and the Tower units will be on floors five through eight (two homes per floor with private outdoor space), offering expansive views from the South End to as far away as the Blue Hills on one side and to Downtown Boston on the other.
Floor plans range from one to four-and-a-half bedroom layouts (half will encompass more than 2,000 square feet) and listing prices range from $525,000 to $4,000,000. Interiors will offer an open layout concept with clean lines, superior workmanship and fine finishes. The large units will feature fully integrated Wolf and Sub-Zero kitchen appliances while the smaller units will have a Thermador package, and all will have beautifully-designed glass tile backsplashes, Caesarstone counters, custom cabinets, and a center island. All the baths–the master, guest and powder rooms–will have a clean, sophisticated style with high-end soaking tubs where space is available. The developers are integrating high technology as much as possible, including climatic and audiovisual systems, into these cutting-edge residences and even in the gym. Completion is anticipated by year-end 2016. The Lucas is located within steps to the South Ends’ restaurants, art galleries, shops and an off-leash dog park, near Ink Block with a brand new Whole Foods market, and within easy access to the MBTA Silver Line and Routes 93 and 90, Logan Airport.
