The Eddy is the latest new development coming to East Boston this September.

The 16-story tower is being built on four acres of waterfront property, with incredible views, access to the Harborwalk and LoPresti Park.

As well as a great location, the building provides residents with luxury amenities throughout. These include a new restaurant complete with outdoor seating, a rooftop pool, a roof deck, a communal chef’s kitchen, a fitness center, secure bike parking and even a dog washing station.

There is convenient access to the rest of Boston from the Maverick Square T stop just six blocks away.

There will be a mix of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments with open layouts, floor-to-ceiling windows, recycled materials and energy star-rated appliances.

The Eddy has been constructed and designed with sustainable living and the environment in mind.

The building has a real-time energy monitoring system and a natural gas co-generation plant on site to produce power.

With well-designed spaces, learning thermostats, locally sourced and recycled materials, the building is created to perform 28% better than the average building.

The location has been rated with a great walking score and residents will have access to natural spaces as well as amenities throughout the nearby neighborhood.

The units will also be relatively more affordable than many of the other new luxury developments throughout Boston, with rents starting at $2,000 for studios and the low $3,000’s for two bedrooms.

A unique new residential development is coming to the East Boston waterfront after original plans have now been replaced.

The developers, City Point Development, have acquired the project on 151 Liverpool Street and are planning to demolish the existing building and construct a new 6-story residential building, according to Bldup.

The new building will have 36 residential condos and an underground parking garage. Some of the unique touches include balconies on almost every unit and a rooftop deck complete with a gym and running/walking track.

The original proposal for the site at 151 Liverpool Street called for an addition to the existing building, but that has been replaced by these plans for a new construction.

While the project is still pending approval, it would be a welcome new addition to East Boston.

The fitness-focused rooftop will provide residents with a unique place to exercise and relax.

Boston East Waterfront Apartments Break Ground

Boston East Development

An East Boston waterfront apartment complex will break ground today along with guests of honor, Gov. Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh, according to Curbed.

Named Boston East, the idea for the residential development was originally created a decade ago as a condo project.

The project has been a long time in the making due the recession and subsequent financing challenges. The original condo concept has been reinvented as apartments and is finally being turned into a reality.

Developer Trinity Financial has now been approved for the 200 unit apartment building, with 174 of the units as market rate and 26 as affordable.

The Boston East development will be more than just apartments though, including a 400-foot public boardwalk, a kayak launch, a community art gallery and an acre of open ground.

$3 million has also been donated by the state to help expand the Boston Harborwalk.

View a video of the property here. Leasing info and rent prices will be released soon. For more info contact us at contact@advisorsliving.com.

East Boston Waterfront Apartments Finally Get Approval

After 10 years of meetings, approvals, licenses and an up & down economy, the spot at 112 Border Street in East Boston is finally set to get underway.  What was originally planned to be 200 for sale condominium units has since changed to luxury apartment rentals.  After months of meetings in their attempt to get Chapter 91 designation which is specific to waterfront properties, Trinity Financial got the go ahead to start on the $67.5 Million project.  In an interview with Boston Business Journal, Vice President of Trinity Financial, Abby Goldenfarb said that the average rent for the 200 rental units will be $2,700.  Cranshaw Construction will be starting on the project by the end of the year with the hope of having units coming online in Spring of 2016.

The project, which is currently being referred to as “Boston East”, will have some unique aspects.  There will be a limited number of “live-work-sell” units for local artists to utilize.  Amenities will include a 400-foot harbor walk with a kayak launch, an acre of open space and a community gallery.  The location will be a beautiful East Boston spot that will combine the beauty and proximity to the waterfront with the culture and sense of community in the area.

Below is a rendering from Icon Architecture and we will be sure to provide more detail on the project as it becomes available.
