When considering a new home, price is always a primary consideration. This, of course, goes along with what you're getting for that price. From our perspective, here are a few of the main questions to ask yourself when deciding on a new home or apartment in Boston:
* How long a commute will I have to work?
* Is there laundry in the unit, or in the building?
* What is included in the rent?
* Is there parking?
* Are there shops and restaurants close to you?
* Is there public transportation?
With that in mind, Curbed has just published a round up of 10 Boston-area homes that are listed at $2,100 a month. The list of properties, compiled by Curbed's Tom Acitelli, "range from a whole house in Medford to a patio with studio in Back Bay."
The list is available on Curbed's Boston website, here.

Looking for a luxury apartment building in a country setting, which also offers easy access to Cambridge and Boston? Look no further than the Vox on Two, a brand new luxury building located on Route 2 near Fresh Pond in Cambridge, MA.
All the features and finishes you’d expect from a high-end luxury building in Downtown Boston, but situated in a tranquil, country setting. Country doesn’t have to mean isolated – Alewife Station is within walking distance, which provides access to Downtown Boston via the speedy Red Line.
These luxury Cambridge apartments are ideal for those who work North and West of the city, but still want to explore all that Cambridge and Boston have to offer.
Route 2 provides easy access to:
- Harvard Square

Vox is also pet friendly – including dogs. Many people relocating to Boston and Cambridge have trouble finding luxury apartments that allow dogs – this is the not the case at Vox. Your beloved Collie will be right at home! Even better, Vox is located next to conservation land – an ideal setting for exploring nature with your best friend.
The site is located at the intersection of Western Avenue and North Harvard Street.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority has approved Samuels & Associates' (developers of the Fenway Triangle project, among many others) proposal for a 325-unit apartment project in the Barry's Corner section of Allston - after the developer agreed to increase the number of parking spots from 180 to 225.
Instead of adding more parking spaces to project, the developer made plans for valets to park cars in the development's parking garage if the original 180 spaces are in use. Improvements to Smith Field, a local park, were also added to the proposal.
In addition to the 325 new rental units, the project will also provide 45,000 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space. 40 on-street parking spots will be available for shopper use, in addition to the underground garage spaces.
The 2.7 acres parcel is owned by Harvard University, and is part of their quest to redevelop the area as a satellite campus. Construction will start this fall.
“The Barry’s Corner project represents an important first step in the redevelopment of North Allston,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said according to a release issued by the developer. “I commend Samuels & Associates and Harvard University for coming together to meet the needs of the community, which will now benefit from shops, activities, and beautiful public space right in their own backyard.” (Quote Source: Plan's for Barry's Corner Released, Harvard Magazine)

|Graphic rendering of The Element in Allston|
The Element in Boston, a new luxury apartment building touting its ‘green’ designation, showcases an ingrained passion for quality and nature. The Element is the first in a series of innovative, environmentally-conscious luxury apartment buildings in Allston, known as the “Green District.”
The demand for Boston’s new LEED-certified construction is reaffirmed by how quickly the building was leased, and by the responses of the residents. Leasing began on the green-certified building almost a year ago; its 100 luxury apartments were preleased in eight weeks.
And it’s no wonder why – with luxury finishes and clean design, a movie theatre, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace, who wouldn’t want to live at the Element? Recycling chutes and environmental lease clauses nudge residents to do their part to reduce harm to the environment.
Developer, the Mount Vernon Company, seeks to transform the portion of Allston, located between Commonwealth Avenue and Brainerd Road, into a forward-thinking green haven.

According to the Boston Courant, a proposed Fenway residential tower would add 320 apartments, but no parking spaces. The company developing the parcel, Samuels & Associates, owns Trilogy at 180 Brookline Ave. Trilogy reportedly contains sufficient parking to quell the demand that the new building would bring.
The proposed high rise, known as the "The Point," would be located at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Boylston Street. The 22-story tower’s proposed unit mix consists of studio, one, two, and three bedroom rentals. The ground level would also be home to 33,000 square feet of retail space.
Residents of the neighborhood have expressed concern that more parking spaces would increase the area’s air pollution and traffic congestion. Many were happy to learn that The Point would not include new parking spaces.
However, Fenway is a rapidly changing area and whether residents approve or not, there are new parking spaces being added. Children’s Hospital has plans for a 525-space parking garage near Kenmore Square. The proposed five-building mixed-use Fenway Center development would also include 1,290 new spaces.
The Point isn’t the only thing Samuels & Associates is building in Fenway. The company is also responsible for the 1325 Fenway Triangle project (also know as Boylston West), located at 1325 Boylston Street, between Yawkey Way and Kilmarnock Street. Like the Point, the 700,000 SF Fenway Triangle project goes beyond residential, and will include office, retail, restaurants, and a Target store.

Developers have finally broken ground and began construction on the much anticipated 120 Kingston Street project in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood. The Boston Redevelopment Authority Board gave final permission to project developers Forest City Residential and Hudson Group North America to begin construction on their proposed 26 story residential tower. The $130 million project will add another 240 high end rental units to the Boston rental market by the beginning of the 2014 season.
Located at 120 Kingston Street on the edge of Boston’s Chinatown district, the apartment complex will run along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and feature studios, one bedroom, two bedroom, and three bedroom unit floor plans. The project is being led by the architectural firm of Elkus Manfredi Architects, and will incorporate designs of granite, concrete, and glass into the 26 story tower.
The structure will also have 4,500 square feet of retail space incorporated into the building for shops and a planned restaurant with outdoor space. There will also be a 2,000 square foot outdoor space along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. The residential tower is expected to boast fantastic views of both the Boston Commons and South Boston’s Seaport District.
The development is being constructed over the site of the former 113 year-old Dainty Dot hosiery building, which the developers first purchased in 2006. The 120 Kingston project was previous approved in 2008; however, original plans for a smaller structure with less rental units were put aside for a grander design supporting a larger scale development.
While this development is underway and not yet ready for the upcoming rental season, we have several comparable listings in and around Chinatown, the Leather District, and South End neighborhoods. These include The Residences at 210 South Street, The Metropolitan, and other luxury apartment buildings in Boston.
Please contact Jonathan at 617-320-6548 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a showing of available apartments and luxury units in the downtown areas.

The development momentum in the South End continues to accelerate with the latest new construction project, the residences at 275 Albany Street at last being unanimously approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority Board. The approved project is actually a resubmitted plan for a preexisting project by the very same developer, first submitted in 2010.
Normandy Real Estate Partners, had originally planned to build two hotels, containing an estimated 408 hotel-room sized units, but in August of this year they handed the Boston Redevelopment Authority Board a Notice of Project Change, indicating their new desire to construct only one hotel, and in the place of the other build a 19 story residential tower and full service luxury apartment complex.
Originally priced at $125 million the double hotel project on Albany Street has now transitioned to become a $150 million apartment complex and hotel. The 1.3 acre site is being envisioned as a “mixed-use” development, conceived by architects from Add Inc., will feature not only residential, but commercial and retail space for shops and restaurants to occupy.
The residential tower will be made up of a planned 220 luxury rental units, made up of studios, one beds, and two bed floor plans. The adjacent hotel will now be designed as an eleven story complex with 325 hotel-sized units, with a 3 story parking garage sitting between the hotel and residence structures, offering an estimated 165 garage parking spaces.
The new construction at 275 Albany Street joins the Ink Block at 300 Harrison Avenue, also in the South end and slated for starting construction late this tear or early next. Boston city planners have started to refer to this area as the Harrison-Albany Corridor; which only since recently has enjoyed some high levels of publicity caused by all the new construction projects announced in the areas and adjoining neighborhoods. The landscape of the downtown and South End areas will no doubt look completely different within the next two to three years. Stay tuned!
