Introducing the “Hipstoric” Gatehouse 75 in Charlestown

First in a series of posts on luxury rental apartments in the Boston market.

Just as the condo market in Boston is hot, so is the rental market, with a number of new construction rental apartment buildings underway. Gatehouse 75 is Charlestown’s new kid on the block, bringing luxury rental apartments to the neighborhood with easy access to downtown Boston. Newly constructed with 99 residences on five floors, you’ll find a blend of historic (brick exterior) and hip (contemporary, chic, condo-quality interiors). The lobby is large and quite attractive – modern and bright with seating. The floor plans include one bedrooms, one bedrooms plus a den, two bedrooms and two bedrooms plus a den, and range from 740 to 1,148 square feet. One-bedroom apartments typically come with one bathroom and two bedroom apartments come with two full bathrooms, and a few first-level apartments have a private patio. At Gatehouse 75, rents start at $2,575 per month for a one-bedroom and $3,200 for a two-bedroom apartment.

The apartments are beautifully appointed with dark-stained wood floors, stainless appliances, stone counters and have the added convenience of an in-unit washer and dryer. Topping the list of amenities is a 2,000 square foot furnished roof deck with a grill and spectacular views of Boston, the Zakim Bridge, The Bunker Hill Monument and Charlestown – a great place to watch fireworks on the Esplanade or Boston Harbor!  In addition, residents can enjoy a community lounge with a catering kitchen (which can be reserved for entertaining), a state-of-the-art fitness center, garage and off-street parking (for an extra fee), bike storage and easy Zipcar access. Pets are welcome and the environment is smoke-free. And, of course, there is on site management when you need it.

Living here, you’ll be within steps of a brand new Whole Foods Market (at the Bunker Hill Mall), which just opened on August 7th, and the Orange Line.  Plus Charlestown offers a fantastic assortment of restaurants and cafes – both waterside in the Navy Yard and amidst the quaint brownstones, as well as a weekly, seasonal farmer’s market. The financial district and North End are just a short walk away via the scenic Freedom trail. And, of course, you can easily walk across the Gilmore Bridge to additional shopping and restaurants in East Cambridge and Beacon Hill.

The property is already 50 percent leased and occupancy has been set for mid-August with the several tenants having moved in today. If you are in search of a luxury rental apartment in Boston, this is a must see! For additional information or to schedule a tour of Gatehouse 75, please contact me.
