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.)
