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

Another home that sold in Pier 4’s Penthouse Collection also achieved $4,180 per square foot and sold for over $13 million.

“The Davis Companies Celebrates the Groundbreaking of $170 Million, 138 Unit Condo Building in Boston” by Boston Real Estate Times

BOSTON — The Davis Companies hosted a groundbreaking celebration to launch 100 Shawmut, the South End’s newest collection of thoughtfully designed luxury condominium residences slated to open in Fall 2020.

100 Shawmut is the first of three abutting projects, collectively approved by the Boston Planning and Development Agency, to commence construction. Speakers included Martin J. Walsh, Mayor of Boston, Jonathan Davis, Founder & CEO of The Davis Companies, Steven Chin, Senior Pastor at the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church, and Paul Chan, President of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association.

“Today, we celebrate the groundbreaking of 100 Shawmut – a project realized through a unique partnership between The Davis Companies, the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church and the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association,” said Jonathan Davis, Founder & CEO of The Davis Companies. “Our collaboration has yielded a dynamic development for the historic South End and this innovative property will ensure that our Chinatown-based non-profit partners will be able to serve the community for years to come, in addition to bringing new housing and jobs to our city.”

Located at the intersection of Herald Street and Shawmut Avenue, the $170 million, 13-story, residential project is comprised of 138 condominiums, including studios, one, two, three- and four-bedroom units, many featuring a den space.

When 100 Shawmut is completed, the 232,000 square-foot property will seamlessly integrate the historic character of the original 1920’s facade with a newly constructed glass structure designed by The Architectural Team (TAT). The building will have a number of private balconies offering sweeping vistas of the city. EMBARC Studio, the interior design team, has created a modern approach to the interiors with a mixture of white oak wood detailing and textural stone conveying a warm, neutral color palette, transitioning and merging the neighborhood architecture with a fresh, new interior.

The building will have a comprehensive amenity program that includes 24/7 concierge, private parking, a private dining/conference room with an entertaining kitchen, a great room, a billiard room, an activity lounge, library, fitness center, dog wash station and children’s playroom. The Penthouse features an indoor and outdoor residents lounge, and a rooftop sky lounge equipped with gas grills and fire pits. 100 Shawmut also houses 3-levels of enclosed private parking containing 112 spaces for residents.

“100 Shawmut presents a rare opportunity to live in a stylish, new condominium building in the South End, one of Boston’s most sought-after historic neighborhoods,” said Janice Dumont, CEO of Advisors Living.  “The definition of modern luxury has just been elevated. The comprehensive amenity program, along with the building’s incredible views, private outdoor spaces and the availability of three-and-four- bedroom residences and penthouses creates a new lifestyle experience in the heart for the city for homeowners. We are privileged to be the exclusive brokerage firm for The Davis Companies on this unique property.”

The Davis Companies will be making a $15,000,000 contribution toward the creation of Inclusionary Development Policy (IDP) units in an escrow account controlled by the BPDA for the benefit of the CCBA Building. In addition, The Davis Companies has committed $200,000 to various community programs.

Suffolk Construction is the general contractor for 100 Shawmut.  The Architectural Team, Inc. located in Chelsea, MA is the design architect and EMBARC Studio, located in Boston has designed the interiors. Copley Wolff Design Group is the landscape architecture firm for the project. Engineers for 100 Shawmut are McNamara Salvia, WSP and  Howard Stein Hudson Associates.

The project is financed by a $105,000,000 construction loan from M&T Bank with participating lenders that include Berkshire Bank, HarborOne Bank, Needham Bank, and Bank of New England.

First look: Pier 4 condos

by Catherine Carlock, Boston Business Journal

The longtime home of legendary Boston seafood restaurant Anthony’s Pier 4 is rapidly transforming into a luxury condominium complex, and the site’s developer just landed a lease with farm-to-table restaurateur Kristin Canty.

Interest is strong for the Pier 4 condos, said Janice Dumont, CEO of AdvisorsLiving. The firm, which is the residential division of Boston Realty Advisors, is the exclusive sales and marketing agent of the nine-story, 106-unit complex.

Pier 4, a nine story, 106-unit luxury condominium building, will open in late 2018 at the former Anthony’s Pier 4 site in Boston.  Tishman Speyer is developing the complex, which was designed by SHoP Architects in collaboration with Boston-based CBT.

VIEW SLIDESHOW

“Given the nostalgia of the site, and the fact that so many people have had wedding receptions, bar mitzvahs, confirmations, at the site, it’s been very exciting,” Dumont said in an interview with the Business Journal.

Two-bedroom units at Pier 4 will start at $2 million-plus. Each home has its own private outdoor space and water views, and penthouse units will feature private roof decks. Amenities include an outdoor terrace, an outdoor seating and dining area with a fire pit, virtual golf and 24-hour concierge services from First Service Residential.
