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.
