The Residences at the Penny Savings Bank are newly built contemporary homes located in the heart of the South End. The original marble and granite façade of the bank’s two-story building was restored and three stories were added to complete the mixed-use five-story building, which offers retails space on the first floor, a lobby designed to reflect the contemporary aesthetic of the neighboring SoWa artist district, and a variety of floor plans. The loft-style units on the second floor, contained within the original structure, feature 11-foot ceilings, large historic windows, balconies and an open floor plan, great for everyday living and entertaining. The one, two and two-plus bedroom homes on levels three through five are located within a “glass curtain wall” structure above the original bank, and feature floor to ceiling windows with a combination of clear and frosted glass panels. All homes feature fine finishes including hardwood or concrete floors, high ceilings, and contemporary custom cabinetry, stone countertops, commercial grade Viking appliances, and access to a professionally landscaped common roof deck with panoramic city views. Residents enjoy easy access to the trendy neighborhood’s wonderful restaurants, the SoWa Open Market, galleries, Foodie’s Urban market, the renowned Flour Bakery & Cafe and public transportation (Silver Line). Access to highways (Route 93 and the Mass Pike) and the airport are minutes away.
