pier 4

The homes at Pier 4, the Seaport’s premiere luxury condominium, are now closing and ready for occupancy. The Penthouse homes at Pier 4 have sold for prices that had only previously been achieved in Back Bay and Beacon Hill, redefining the geography of Boston’s luxury condo market. One residence that has closed in the Penthouse Collection sold for $15,231,920 and achieved a record-shattering price per square foot of $4,180. As of June 2019, no other residential sale in Boston has ever closed for over $4,000 per square foot.  So what are some of the features of these amazing homes in the Penthouse Collection?

Each has its own uniquely designed feature staircase leading to an expansive private roof terrace, equipped with a fully appointed kitchen – perfect for entertaining this Fourth of July

A full-height 99-bottle wine fridge – let your inner sommelier free

Soaring 10’5” ceiling – plenty of room for art and furniture that fits your tastes

Gas fireplaces – ideal for colder winter months

Private balconies with captivating views

Indulgent soaking tub for rest and relaxation after a long day of exploring all that the Seaport has to offer

Another home that sold in Pier 4’s Penthouse Collection also achieved $4,180 per square foot and sold for over $13 million. To put these sales in perspective, the highest sale in Back Bay in 2019 did not cross the $2,700 per square foot threshold. These record sales at Pier 4 showcase the value of new waterfront homes in full service buildings versus inventory in Back Bay and Beacon Hill that has aged and is not fully amenitized.

Boston to Host IndyCar Grand Prix

Boston IndyCar Grand Prix

For the first time in history, Boston will host the 2016 Grand Prix of the IndyCar Series. May of last year is when city officials announced the Boston race had been added to the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season. The Grand Prix of Boston will be a three-day racing competition held in the streets of South Boston and specifically the Seaport.

The race will feature more than twenty of the world’s most talented drivers, and the event will span September 2nd – September 5th, 2016. INDYCAR and IndyCar Boston will offer multiple options of entertainment and activities before, during, and after the race for all ages.

Many different hotels and restaurants have partnered with Grand Prix of Boston to offer the best experiences for all fans and spectators. The Westin Boston Waterfront hotel is located at the heart of the event. You can enjoy the race from the luxurious suites that offer an amazing view or you can join the crowd right on the course. Either way the Westin is a top-notch spectator location. The Seaport Boston Hotel is located on the waterfront in the Seaport District, and offers beautiful city and harbor views, and convenient access to the main entry point of The Grand Prix, the Boston Convention Center.

It probably won’t be easy to get a table on this weekend but there are some great restaurant spots in the area including: Some of the restaurants in the area include Menton, Ocean Prime, and Strega Waterfront just to name a few.

If you are a part of the community that resides in the Seaport area you already have a front row seat or pretty close to it. Residents of the Twenty Two Liberty luxury condos and the 100 Pier 4 luxury apartments will be able to walk out their front doors to be a part of the action. And if all goes well and this becomes an annual stop on the racing schedule, future residents of 50 Liberty and Pier 4 will be right there with them.

Your walk to work could look very different with a new addition to one of Downtown Boston’s most notable buildings. Just beyond Post Office Square sits 100 Federal Street in the center of Downtown Boston. Famous for the protruding appearance from the outside, Downtown office workers have fondly deemed it as the building with the bulge. Boston Properties wants to spruce it up and take advantage of the open street-level space below the building. Boston Civic Design Commission granted Boston Properties approval on the addition of a glass atrium at the base of the building.

The atrium addition to 100 Federal St. could include 8,500 square feet of retail space, 500 square feet of kiosk space, and 8,990 square feet dedicated to a “winter garden.”

Perkins + Will is the designer for the addition while a familiar face sits behind the landscaping design. Mikyoung Kim Design is slated to coordinate the landscape architecture. Mikyoung Kim Design is working on several projects throughout the city, such as the plaza outside of the Prudential at 888 Boylston St. and the Pier 4 Plaza steps outside of the 100 Pier 4 luxury condominiums in the Seaport.

Boston Properties will seek full approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
