Tour the streets of Boston’s South End with Advisors Living as we spot the new developments paving the streets of this sought-after neighborhood. Read the second part of this series here.

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 11.31.58 AMCrossing Massachusetts Avenue to the tree-lined streets of Harrison Avenue, the Boston Medical Center rises to your right, busy with residents and physicians milling in and out.

Walking down Harrison Avenue, you’re met with an array of businesses, hospitals, brunch spots, and architecturally brilliant churches and brownstones. At 775 Harrison Avenue sits the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the proposed site for a redeveloped 62-unit condominium. This is the second church-to-condo development project within the South End. The first being The Lucas located just Northeast of this property.

As you look to your left and duck into the neighboring offshoots of streets you stumble across some of Boston’s best kept brunch secrets. The South End Buttery is tucked off on one of these small side streets, filled with the clattering of brunch and laughter from local residents. Tremont street dazzles with boutiques and a posh nightlife, housing local favorites like that of the speakeasy Beehive and pizza restaurant Picco. As you make your way back to Harrison Avenue and continue East, to your right sits 600 Harrison Avenue. 600 Harrison Avenue is one of the many new luxury apartment developments planned for Boston’s South End with 160 apartments, an expansive roof deck, retail space and parking.

At the intersection of Harrison Avenue and East Dedham Street begins the proposed Harrison-Albany Corridor, a 14,000 square feet of retail space and 40,000 square feet of office space with an underground garage. Not yet built, but looking to integrate within the vibrant fabric of the South End neighborhood, the mixed-use space will cover the expanse of several city blocks bringing residential, retail and cultural space to the area. A 19-story South End building could house luxury apartments becoming the tallest new construction in the neighborhood, bringing 710 units to the area.

More and more mixed-use space is moving to the South End. Several blocks further you find Boston’s newest luxury complex Ink Block with a style all its own. Tune in next week for the second part covering Ink Block and more in Boston’s South End neighborhood.)

Ink Block Home to New Turnstyle Cycle Studio

Ink Block, South End’s newest and arguably swankiest modern luxury apartment complex at 300 Harrison Avenue, will be home to the newest cycle studio. Turnstyle Cycle is joining forces with Velo-City to become one boutique fitness company. The two studios made the announcement in a press release and on the Velo-City blog last week and tweeted about the new relationship. Ink Block welcomed them with open arms adding the cycling studio to its ShrINK classes and fitness amenities. Velo-City will take on Turnstyle’s name, bringing the instructor count to 30 instructors and sporting the most bikes of any boutique fitness company in the area at 130 stationary bikes spread across 3 studio locations.

March 30th from 7:30pm-10:30pm, Turnstyle in partnership with Pan Mass Challenge will co-host a launch party in the posh main lobby of “1 INK” at the Ink Block luxury developments. There will be an open bar and sneak peek tours of the new studio. Tickets are $15 and available for purchase. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Pan Mass Challenge.

Ink Block isn’t stopping at adding cycling studios to its residences. Also coming to the neighborhood around the complex is Core Power Yoga, Sweet Green, Bar Mezzana, and a cocktail bar from Ken Casey Dropkick Murphys guitarist.

In the South End there is no Separation of Church & Real Estate

Boston is full of unique and beautiful living accommodations but none quite like the new proposed condo building on the site of the former Holy Trinity German Catholic Church and rectory in the South End.  Located at 136 Shawmut, the revived building will consist of 33 condos with a basement garage that would fit 28 vehicles.

The design by architect James Alexander will bring a breath of fresh air to the booming area already containing the massive Troy Boston luxury apartment building and the expansive Ink Block and Sepia complex.  In collaboration with his design team from Finegold Alexander & Associates and in partnership with New Boston Ventures, Alexander’s goal is to preserve the history of the existing structure.

As you can see in the rendering from Finegold Alexander Architects that was part of last week’s Boston Globe article, the condos will be glass and steel and built to look as if they are coming out of the existing church roof.  There is no timeline yet for the 58,000 square foot structure but the proposal is expected to go before the Boston Redevelopment Authority this month.

If the success of the Sepia condos is any indication, the 136 Shawmut project should be well received.  Units at Sepia are selling from $459,900 to over $2 million (according to their website) depending on the floor plan and location within the building and they have sold a majority of the homes in advance of the opening not expected until Fall of this year.

This isn’t the first attempt at a church conversion and it likely won’t be the last in this city rich with phenomenal, vintage architecture that is worth saving instead of replacing.  Anyone looking to live here would certainly be blessed.
