#OpenNewbury Confirmed For One Day This August

Newbury Street

It has been confirmed that Newbury Street in Back Bay will be closed to traffic and open to pedestrians for one day this summer. 

On Sunday August 7th people will be able to enjoy the seven blocks of Newbury Street without worrying about traffic from 10am to 6pm. 

Called the Open Newbury Street project, the city hopes to create a temporary pedestrian-only avenue for residents and visitors to enjoy one of Boston's most iconic streets. 

The concept for this idea came from various city departments looking for fun, new ideas to make Boston's public spaces more inviting for those exploring the city by foot. 

Opportunities like these are really beneficial to neighborhood businesses and many merchants in the area are very excited about the event. 

Events like these allow the public to experience important city spaces in a new way and local businesses will make use of this day with special events. 

While most of the public have expressed their excitement for the event, some businesses have their concerns about how it will potentially negatively effect business.

Back Bay Chanel No. 6 Redevelopment Underway

We suppose the developer of the garage at 4-6 Newbury Street in Back Bay completely thought out his new idea. Because what kind of experience will Chanel shoppers truly are able to have when they hear a horn honking above their heads because someone reversed out of turn? Well the now garage is being converted, and rightfully so.  The garage is planned to convert into luxury apartments. The future luxury apartments, which were sold as shells, were traded cumulatively at $7,250,000.

Boston Property Development plans to turn the shells into two luxury residential condos. The condos have plans to be listed for sale in 2015. We’re looking forward to viewing the end product of these future gems – home décor junkies; you will be in for quite a treat!

Avalon Bay Apartments in Boston Span Multiple Locations

If you deem yourself unique, with taste of the sort, look no further than to Avalon Bay’s new apartment buildings.

Avalon prides itself on height and diversity; and with an array of style that comes in large form, your eye isn’t able to miss any of these intermittently placed buildings throughout the city and its surrounding areas.

In Back Bay’s Avalon Exeter, you will find a community design in all 28 stories of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, and penthouses.

Avalon’s North Point Cambridge building offers loft-style studio apartments within a full amenity building, and sitting adjacent to the Green line makes for uber convenience in way of transit.

Within the Avalon building in Somerville, there are studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments. This building stands just walking distance from fabulous restaurants, retail, entertainment, and an Orange Line T stop.

Parcel 13 in Boston Receives Three Bids

And the bids are in! Three development teams have officially pitched their ideas on the future of Parcel 13 to MassDot and the MBTA, and now sit patiently awaiting the results. Once chosen, the proposal winners will be granted 54,500 square feet of air rights over the Mass. Pike and Green Line tunnel, which is quite a wide range of space according to Boston standards.

Parcel 13 is located in Back Bay on Boylston Street and Mass. Ave. – prime location; however, it is shortened by the MBTA station and divided by the Massachusetts Turnpike. But that hunch doesn’t inconvenience these innovative developers.

Ideas range from multi-use buildings – residential and retail space – to hotel and community spaces. A winner will be chosen by the end of the year and then the construction begins!

According to Curbed, “the winning team will get a shot at 54,500 square feet of air rights over the Mass. Pike and the Green Line tunnel across from the Hynes Convention Center, which means a rather large (by Boston standards at least) development. The team also will have the opportunity/obligation to upgrade the Hynes Station, which currently doesn’t meet federal accessibility standards. Some 8,950 customers use the station on an average weekday, so that’s can mean serious foot traffic for any ground-floor retail.”

Curbed Boston has more information on the three pitches received.

Continue to check back in the coming weeks and months – further updates on Parcel 13 are on the way!

Will 40 Trinity Place ever Rise in Back Bay?

There are no guarantees in the world of real estate, and Back Bay’s 40 Trinity is a true testament to that.

After being approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, it was then questioned about its size and scope of the building. After much inquisition, it was sent to Boston’s Zoning Board of Appeals to get the final necessary consent of approval. And there it still remains, in the hands of the zoning board. After a little over a year, a decision is yet to be made.

If 40 Trinity comes to fruition, it will have 220 four-star hotel rooms, 142 condos, ground-floor retail and 100 parking spaces. We sure are crossing our fingers about this one! Stay tuned.

Ink Block and Sepia in Boston's South End

Ink Block and Sepia in the South End are two of the most anticipated residential buildings in the city.  Sepia is the condominium aspect of the project and it is not a huge surprise that even a studio there carries a hefty price tag.  The smallest of the luxury condos is asking over half a million!

From Curbed.Boston:

“Real estate in the South End hasn’t been on the cheaper side for ’round about eons now, but things appear to be getting really out of hand of late…we have what could very well be the most expensive studio for sale in the entire City of Boston right now: a 512-square-foot number in the under-construction Sepia Boston, part of the Ink Block mega-project. The studio wants $540,000 on the nose. Is that too much to ask, even in a building that will be connected to a new Whole Foods?”

Boston Apartments into Condos: The Hub's Fall Residential Trend?

The real estate market is left with many questions as we move into Fall.  The most pressing one is will the switch finally be made from apartments to condos?  With a boom in luxury apartment construction it is unclear whether this frenzy will continue or transition into a surplus of this type of housing.  Keep an eye out for updates!

“Condo sales prices throughout the region have been scaling up for many months now. Take downtown Boston…It’s entirely likely that as you read this that area’s average condo price is $1,000,000 or more. Limited supply + seemingly insatiable demand + maddening opposition to new development + historically low (for now) mortgage rates = sellers asking, and getting, more and more—a trend sure to continue this fall,” notes Curbed’s Boston real estate publication.
