Developer Millennium Partners announced the latest sales figures on its 60-story ultra-luxury residential tower under construction in Downtown Crossing, and its exciting news. Nearly three quarters of the residential skyscraper’s 442 units are already sold—without even being completed! Sales total $650 million in just the four months since the units became available. This early momentum is practically unheard of in Downtown Boston, let alone in Downtown Crossing.
What’s also surprising is that, contrary to initial speculation, 75 percent of Millennium Tower’s sales so far have been to local buyers. And these buyers have clearly demonstrated demand for a new standard of state-of-the-art luxury and amenity-rich living in Boston. My clients were wowed during their visit to the sales office and model, which is as stunning as what you’ll find in the luxurious development once its complete in mid-2016. The high-touch experience is capped off with a super slick 4K resolution video that projects a true-to-life depiction of the structure, full-scale renderings of the residences and actual views from different floors… even actual views from specific units.
The condos at Millennium Tower will offer pure luxury around every corner, each one complemented by a giant amenities package that includes a 24-hour concierge, a library, a game room, the largest residential fitness center in Boston, an outdoor terrace, an indoor junior Olympic lap pool, a bar, the trademark La Vie® lifestyle program and exclusive dining services overseen by star chef Michael Mina. And, your dog will be a welcome addition to the community!
Millennium Tower is not only changing the face of luxury living in Boston, it’s also a major influence in transforming the city’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood. Despite infrastructure enhancements, new retail and dining options and the opening of Millennium Place down the street, it’s still mostly busy during the daytime hours. Millennium Tower is expected to change that, though. There are already notable businesses headquartered at the site in the adjacent, restored Burnham building (home of the original Filenes) and more to come: a 25,000 square-foot Roche Bros supermarket is set to open there this spring, which will undoubtedly enhance the neighborhood’s residential appeal, and the luxury Godfrey Hotel and European-based retailer Primark have anticipated openings next September.
The remaining units at Millennium Tower start at $1.5 million for a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath residence, though only a few one-beds remain. Two bedroom units start at $1.6 million and include one parking space and three-bedrooms, all on premier high floors with two parking spaces, begin at $3.095 million. If you are intrigued by what is the most anticipated residential building in modern Boston history and a prospective buyer, I’d love to give you a look.
