Today brings great news for Downtown Crossing residents and those moving to this burgeoning Boston neighborhood. A 25,000-square-foot Roche Bros., the first-ever full-service market in the vicinity, opened here today. The store occupies the neighborhood’s newly restored Burnham building and anchors the rising super luxury Millennium Tower condominiums.

The opening of Roche Bros. is a huge step forward in the evolution of Downtown Crossing, further enhancing its residential appeal. Now residents of buildings like 45 Province, the Ritz Towers, Millennium Place and the under-construction Millennium Tower, each with access to an abundance of high-end amenities within their residences, can add access to a convenient place to purchase fresh food, national grocery brands, local artisan specialties, and a wide selection of prepared foods – even a last-minute item for a recipe – to their list of condo features.

At the street level, the store is stocked with a wide selection of ready-to-eat meals, snacks and treats, from sandwiches, soups and salads to freshly rolled sushi. Street-side seating and a fruit and flower stand are outside the store, too. Downstairs, in the former space of the historic Filene’s Basement, is a full-service supermarket, including a “Chop Shop,” where you can choose from more than 40 varieties of veggies cut fresh daily in the store, chef-style and recipe-ready.

The new Roche Bros., located at 8 Summer Street, will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. And for those in a time crunch, online ordering with home delivery is conveniently available. If you’d like to see some of the luxury residences available in Downtown Crossing, now with easy access to a large-scale grocery store, new retail and dining options and theatre, let’s take a look together.  When was the last time you’ve experienced what’s now Boston’s hottest new neighborhood?
