One of the newest condo complexes along the waterfront, at the nexus of the Charles River and Boston Harbor, Lovejoy Wharf prioritizes luxury living, exclusive amenities and spectacular views. The building’s brick façade and long rectangular windows pay homage to Boston’s historic architecture and waterfront heritage, and as the building rises, a faceted glass curtain provides a contemporary edge. The sophisticated property, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, is as luxurious in its offering as its design. The 15-story building will have 157 residences including studios, one-, two, and three-bedroom units—15 floor plans in all. The exquisitely-designed homes feature wide-plank oak flooring, a suite of Gaggeneau and Bosh appliances, quartz kitchen countertops, marble tiled bathroom walls, Kaldewei deep-soaking tubs paired with classic, elegant vanities, and views ranging from the water to the city skyline to area landmarks. Eight units have private roof decks, and all residents can use the spacious and beautifully landscaped terrace on the 12th floor, outfitted with grills, chairs, and plenty of space to relax on a warm day. The building also has a 24-hour doorman and concierge service along with a fitness studio, lounge, library, billiards room, business center, and a children’s room, as well as dog spa, bike storage and a curated collection of additional superior amenities. Prices range from $630,000 for studios to $3 million-plus for three-bedroom units. Lovejoy Wharf’s central location provides easy walkability throughout the city and offers residents a thriving live-work-play experience. North Station is in close proximity and rental parking is available nearby. Occupancy is slated for late summer, 2017.
Construction is underway on what will be the Boston’s tallest residential skyscraper: the ultra-luxury One Dalton, the private residences operated by the Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts in the city’s coveted Back Bay neighborhood. The completed tower with its shimmering, curved glass façade will rise 699 feet (61 stories) into the skyline from its base at 1 Dalton Street, next to the Christian Science Plaza. A 211-room Four Seasons hotel (Boston’s second) will be situated in the building’s first 24 floors. Accessible through a separate entrance, floors 25-61 will include 180 private residences with panoramic views from every unit. The homes, designed by renowned architect Henry Cobb, will also feature 11-foot ceilings, fireplaces, bay windows, concierge and doorman services, on-site parking as well as a private restaurant club on the 50th floor. Residents will also have access to the hotel’s amenities including two restaurants, two lounges, and a health club and spa. This new generation of high-rise will meet the needs of buyers looking for an ultra-luxury residence and the lifestyle it provides, along with brand new construction, within an easy walk to the fabulous shopping and dining options on Newbury Street, the Prudential Center, Copley Place, theatre and the Charles River Esplanade, the Public Garden and more. Prices for the condos are expected to be in the range of $2,500 to $3,000 per square foot, reflecting the super luxury design, features and amenities of this world-class residence and its desirable Back Bay location. Completion of this $750,000 million project, developed by Carpenter & Co., is slated for 2018.
