South Boston, affectionately known as “Southie,” has seen a tremendous change in demographics over the past twenty years. As a flood of young professionals and families move into the neighborhood, an influx of new retailers and restaurants to serve the needs of the changing population are moving into the area. Now, South Boston has a growing number of exciting restaurants, unique boutiques, and cute cafes. This active neighborhood offers multiple spin studios, yoga studios, and gyms. These venues offer opportunities for residents to get to know their neighbors, fostering a strong sense of community.
South Boston’s natural amenities are some of the best in the city. Take a trip to Castle Island (a peninsula, really) to enjoy what many consider to be one of the best parks in Boston. Explore jogging trails, take a swim, or relax on the sand. This is the perfect place for a scenic picnic! Or head over to Carson Beach, one of the best beaches for swimming around the city.
South Boston is a particularly popular destination with young professionals looking for a home in Boston. While rents in South Boston have increased dramatically, the area is still less expensive than Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and most of the South End.
Due to increasing awareness of South Boston’s appeal, it’s no wonder that competition for a home in South Boston is strong. Since 2009, the number of home sales has risen steadily year after year, with an average volume increase of over 10%. Condos in South Boston range from units in 3-family buildings to some of the city’s most unique luxury lofts. Take a look at the LEED-Gold Certified Macallen Building, with 24-hour concierge and lap pool.
