|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.

It is conveniently located on the Allston/Brookline border, just a block from the Green Line. Each building offers unique character, while all are constructed to the highest, environmental standards to earn LEED-certification.
Green certification isn’t the only merit of the Edge, however; the beautiful Allston apartments feature all the amenities one could ask for, and more. The modern new construction flaunts eco-friendly, loft-style apartments with 9’ ceilings. The unit mix consists of studios, 1 bedrooms, 1 bedroom + den, and 2 bedrooms. Each apartment offers designer kitchens with silestone countertops and stainless steel appliances. In-unit stackable washers and dryers make laundry less of a chore.

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.

The South End is the latest neighborhood in Boston to become a site of a brand new luxury apartment complex aimed at revitalizing a once bustling area of downtown. The site of the old Boston Globe headquarters at 300 Harrison Avenue has been chosen by the investors at National Development to become the site for their new 6.2 acre luxury apartment complex tentatively called, the Ink Bock. The Boston Redevelopment Authority has been approached by National development to begin construction on the new $200 million project, for delivery into the Boston rental market of 2016, adding an estimated 471 units to the South End neighborhood.
The 548,900 square foot “mixed-use development” is being built in what Boston city planners have nicknamed the Harrison-Albany Corridor, and in addition to the residential units being built, the architects also have 85,000 square feet set aside for commercial and retail businesses. The project being designed by the architectural firm Elkus/Manfredi Architects plans to provide space for a grocery store (now being reported to be a Whole Foods), shops, and restaurants. The luxury apartment complex will also be joined by a total of 411 parking spaces (both indoor and outdoor), bicycle parking, a Hubway location, and zip car parking spots.
The Ink Block project will feature a thus-far planned 471 rental units, made up of one, two, and three bedroom floor plans spread across an intended five building complex, made up of five to nine story glass buildings. National Development plans to demolish the standing structure, that is the former Boston Globe headquarters (the new Globe headquarters was recently moved to a new location in the Seaport District) and begin construction late this year or early next. The proposed Ink Block development joins other new construction luxury apartment projects in the South End at 275 Albany Street and 345 Harrison Avenue. Add the South End to the list of neighborhoods in the downtown Boston area that has literally become “under-siege” by exciting and promising new construction projects.

The “power-house” development firm, Millennium Partners LLC, is right back to work in Downtown Crossing, with the Boston Redevelopment Authority granting approval on its plans to build a whopping 55-story residential skyscraper in the heart of downtown Boston. Located at the former Filene’s site on Washington Street, the new development is expected to cost an estimated $620 million to build. Construction is set to begin within the next year, with delivery slated for the 2016-2017 rental and sales peaks. The ambitious project, totaling 500-600 rental units, takes a giant leap forward with this new approval from the city with the key involvement of Millennium Partners LLC.
Long referred to as the “Burnham Building restoration project,” the city of Boston had met with developers and planners for years in hopes of turning the site into something beneficial to the Downtown Crossing area. Previously, the site had been under agreement with developers from Vorando -- a New York based real estate investor -- but plans for the 39-floor project they envisioned never got off the ground; efforts to reenergize the development also fell silent.
Enter Millennium Partners! Millennium Partners LLC is no stranger to the Boston development arena, Millennium Partners had already built the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common hotel and residences, and now, it is currently constructing Millennium Place, a 15-story full-service luxury residence. The level of new construction and redevelopment in the Downtown Crossing area is unprecedented, and as city planners hope, will add new residents and business opportunities to the city for years to come.
When completed, the 55-story, 606-foot building will become the third tallest standing structure in the city of Boston, behind only the John Hancock tower at 790 feet, and the Prudential Building at 751 feet. In addition to the 500-600 residential units planned in Millennium Tower, the developers also intend to fully restore the 100 year old “historic” Burnham Building and use 230,000 square feet of the first several floors for commercial and retail space. The site will also feature a “Shopper’s Park” and outdoor amphitheater to energize pedestrian activity in the neighborhood.

The latest in a series of brand new construction projects that have seemingly invaded the Boston area within recent years, Millennium Place is the newest addition to the multi-million dollar projects slated for release within the coming months in the Downtown Crossing neighborhood. Originally named Hayward Place, the $220 million project will be adding another 256 rental units to the notoriously low inventory of the Boston market just in time for the rental season of 2013. The 15 story residential structure, which has since been renamed, Millennium Place earlier this year is underdevelopment by Millennium Partners on lower Washington Street, and will feature one, two, and three bedroom units.
• 256 Rental units
• Expected Fall 2013
• Sports Club/LA fitness center on-site
• Private screening theater
• Children’s Room daycare facility
• Private garden green for residents
The 390,000 square foot endeavor will also include 125 individual underground parking spaces, and will retain nearly 10,000 square feet street level retail space reserved for shops and businesses. The once vacant parking lot will now be a new destination for home owners and businesses in the area that Mayor Thomas Menino has been trying to breathe new life into for over a decade. Since 2002, the Downtown Crossing area has seen record transformation and investment; which is a miracle to say the least for an area that during the 1970s, used to be dominated by strip-clubs, bars, and other less than savory businesses.
Millennium Place takes joins others in a sea of new construction projects in the neighborhood, standing opposite the Millennium Partners built Ritz-Carlton Boston Commons Hotel, and will be joined by the current Kensington project; which will add another 381 rental units to the growing area within the next year or so. Despite these tumultuous economic times felt by many, investors and entrepreneurs continue to invest in the Boston area, and developers will continue to provide new and luxurious housing to a market that remains competitive and ever-growing. Downtown Crossing is just one example of a Boston neighborhood that is expanding to meet the demands of new tenants in a city where housing is always in demand!
