The super luxury Millennium Tower condos in Boston’s rejuvenated Downtown Crossing neighborhood are selling fast! In fact, more than 90% of the building’s 445 residences are pre-sold well in advance of the 60-story tower’s summer 2016 opening. Though the sales momentum is undeniably strong, there’s still opportunity to capture the lifestyle at Millennium Tower. Here’s a snapshot of the building’s remaining 40 or so units, all of which offer the vantage point of the uppermost floors:
- Grand Residences: Situated on floors 46 to 55, each unit features stunning, wide-open views of the harbor, river or city; Poggenpohl-designed kitchens; appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero and at least one valet parking space. Floor plans range from 1,486 to 5,105 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two to 4.5 baths, and are priced from $2.95 to $7.025 million.
- Penthouse Collection: Some of the most exciting real estate listings in Boston, the penthouses (floors 56 to 60) feature stellar views, ceilings heights of up to 12.5 feet, two valet or self-deeded parking spaces and many offer outdoor terraces. Buyers can choose from move-in ready floor plans with top-tier finishes and Christopher Peacock kitchen and bath cabinetry offering a choice of color, designs and hardware to complement exquisite stone countertops. (I saw a model of the custom kitchen last week and it was absolutely stunning!) Floor plans range from 1,405 square feet to 7,172 square feet with two to three bedrooms and 2.5 to 4.5 baths, and are priced from $3.45 to $11.995 million.
- Grand West Penthouse: Also still on the market is one of the towers’ showcase units, a 6,527 square-foot, $20 million, fully-customizable penthouse on the 60th floor that comes with floor-to-ceiling views from every room.
Millennium Tower brings on the wow factor in a big way. My clients have been totally impressed by the level of luxury and the quality of the amenity package—it truly raises the bar on city living. Along with the expected 24-hour concierge, valet service and high-speed elevators, buyers can expect a lobby for upper floors and a lobby for lower floors to create a more intimate feel, and two separate elevator banks to minimize elevator wait time. The signature “La Vie” lifestyle program provides private events and insider excursions throughout Boston focused on food, wine, art, music and culture. The exclusive two-level Club will include a private dining room, parlor, library, screening room and full-service lounge, and the luxurious fitness center offers a gym, nutrition services and an indoor lap pool for residents. Michelin-starred, James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina will oversee the Club’s the private dining facilities.
There’s lots of excitement right outside of the 625-foot tower’s residences, too, where the neighborhood has been revitalized to meet the demand of sophisticated buyers, renters and savvy business who are moving here. Walgreens opened a super store complete with a nail salon, sushi bar and pharmacy, the popular Dublin-based clothier Primark and London-based Caffè Nero chose Downtown Crossing for their first US stores, there’s a brand new Roche-Bros. supermarket in the adjacent Burnham Building (formerly home of Filenes), the high-style Godfrey Hotel will welcome its first guests next month, and Mina’s acclaimed Pabu restaurant will open on the first two floors of Millennium Tower next September… and those are just the highlights of Downtown Crossing’s dramatic revival.
