Crane Watch: New Interior Photos Released for South End’s 345 Harrison


A two-acre site in Boston’s South End neighborhood will soon be home to two sprawling new residential buildings. 345 Harrison Avenue has become one of the neighborhood’s hottest new residential developments, delivering 585 world-class apartments to the bustling neighborhood. The two 14-story buildings, totaling 535,900 square-feet will include 40,000 square-feet of ground-floor retail and an underground parking garage with 275 vehicle spaces and 325 bicycle spaces.

The new buildings will further the urban renewal process that seeks to revitalize this area of Boston, while connecting the vibrant Downtown and South End neighborhoods. The project will improve pedestrian connectivity and circulation in the neighborhood and will serve as a vital physical and economic link between Downtown and South End. The site will include a landscaped pedestrian path that leads from the project to the MBTA Silver Line on Washington Street. Its location is conveniently situated across from a Whole Foods Grocery Store and countless other South End restaurants and shopping centers. Its developers, UDR, have built over 5,000 new units in six states since 2006 for total development costs of $1.3 billion. 345 Harrison has since become one of UDR’s most significant undertakings in terms of size and capabilities.

This week, UDR has released several new renderings, exhibiting the interiors of 345 Harrison‘s apartments and luxury amenities.

Amenities at 345 Harrison include a 14th floor sky lounge with outstanding Back Bay views, an outdoor rooftop swimming pool and expansive, 4,000 square-foot fully-equipped fitness center/yoga room.

Apartments are as dynamic and innovative as its South End address, crafted with crisp custom finishes, with every detail carefully considered to create a beautiful backdrop for your life in Boston.

345 Harrison Ave is expected reach completion by early 2018. Stay updated with new renderings, floor plans and pre-sales via Bushari’s Crane Watch.

A Look Into the Upcoming Boutique Residences of 276 Newbury Street


This week, Bushari agents got an inside look into one of Back Bay‘s most highly-anticipated residential developments. The residences at 276 Newbury Street, developed by Boston’s Centremark LLC and designed by Cambridge architects Margolis + Fishman, will bridge two classic brownstones at 276 and 278 Newbury Street into a seamless blend of historic architecture and modern opulence.

Each of 276 Newbury‘s floor plans will emphasize exemplary entertaining and modern living with spacious, open floor plans that are complemented by herringbone pattern oak flooring. The units, which harbor three+ bedroom, 2.5+ bathroom configurations, also feature study rooms, laundry rooms, private decks, and coveted on-site parking. Its location along Back Bay‘s bustling Newbury street allows for convenient access to the boutique shops, restaurants and parks that make the neighborhood famous.

While the building will retain its historic brownstone design elements, the existing brick masonry of the façade will be cleaned and repointed as necessary. Its front yard will be excavated to a lower level in order to create retail entrances and expose previously-modified lower level entrances. A private elevator will be added, allowing for secure private access to each of the residences. The building’s interior design is curated by Ally coulter Designs, with furnishings by Fendi Casa and Luxury Living Group of New York.

276 Newbury Residence One will occupy the entire third floor of the building, spanning approximately 2,000 square-feet plus a private 500 square-foot deck. Its sprawling layout, with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, is ideal for entertaining; pre-wired for audio and visual entertainment. Its gleaming chef’s kitchen features custom cabinetry and polished Quartzite and Miele appliances.

Residences Two and Three will occupy the building’s fourth and fifth floors, respectively. These units deliver the ultimate Back Bay living experience, draped in heritage and a timeless appeal. The penthouse level is accessible via direct elevator access from residences Two and Three and offers an additional living area, a bath with shower, and private outdoor deck overlooking Newbury street and the Back Bay skyline. Finishes include interior and exterior gas fireplaces and a sizable wet bar. Both residences two and three harbor 3+ bedroom, 3.5+ bathroom configurations. Additionally, these three units may be combined for the ultimate Back Bay living experience.

We’d like to thank Lisa Rainis of Otis & Ahearn for the invitation to 276 Newbury’s exclusive broker’s open.

Completion of 276 Newbury is expected by December 2018. Units are now available for pre-sale. Find available units and floor plans here.

Michael Dell Buys One Dalton Penthouse in Boston’s Most Expensive Condo Sale



Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell Technologies, is currently in contract for one of the three penthouse residences in Back Bay’s One Dalton residential tower.

One Dalton, which is expected to wrap up construction by the final quarter of 2018, has already sold several of its luxury condos. At a height of 742 feet, One Dalton will be the third largest tower to pierce the Boston skyline; with only the Prudential and John Hancock Towers soaring above at heights of 750 feet and 790 feet, respectively.

While it is not yet known how much Dell is expected to pay for the penthouse, there is currently another for sale at $40 million. The three penthouses will occupy the 60th and 61st floors of the building. In June of 2016, investment fund manager John Grayken shattered records with the most expensive condominium sale in Boston history at $35 million in Millennium Tower. The penthouse won’t be Dell’s first big purchase in the city. He bought his 4,110 square-foot Millennium Tower penthouse for $10.9 million in the last quarter of 2016, following a $60 billion deal by Dell Technologies acquiring Hopkinton’s EMC Corp.

Dell’s penthouse will be approximately 7,300 square-feet in size across two stories, in addition to a 570 square-foot outdoor terrace. One Dalton residents will also have access to a private residents’ club on the 50th floor, a state-of-the-art spa, restaurant, golf simulator and indoor lap pool. As of November 2017, the building has reached nearly half of its full height and is expected to top off in early 2018. Keep up to date on One Dalton’s construction via Bushari’s Crane Watch.

Penthouse units will feature private roof decks, while all residents will have access to a common roof deck.

87WBroadway2The neighborhood harbors a number of residential developments, ranging from single-family homes to multi-unit condominium and apartment complexes. Several MBTA bus stops run nearby the site, and the Broadway Red Line MBTA station is just one block away – providing a connection to South Station and more Boston excitement. The project compliments its surrounding buildings, including several of four to six stories in height, as well as the nearby Macallen Building with a height of ten stories along Dorchester Avenue.

The commercial first floor will feature a glazed curtain wall with spandrel glass, terminated by a projecting horizontal sign band. The main body will be clad in a smooth surface indicative of stone, punctuated by vertical open and closed balconies. The top floor will be set back slightly, clad in a textured metal tile.
