Now Under Construction: The Archer Residences at Beacon Hill

ArcherUpdateFB

The Archer Residences – previously known as Archer | Donahue, will deliver 71 luxury condominiums to Boston’s historic Beacon Hill. Occupying the lot at 33-61 Temple Street, The Archer Residences is situated across from the distinguished Massachusetts State House and has been masterfully designed to reflect the charm and character of the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

This new residential project calls for the construction of luxury condos with resident amenity space and below-grade parking for 54 vehicles. The site includes two connected buildings totaling approximately 171,950 gross square-feet and an adjacent paved area. The first building, known as the Gleason L. & Hiram J. Archer Building (Archer) was once used in the past for Suffolk classroom space. the second building, known as the Frank J. Donahue Building (Donahue) was used for Suffolk classroom and administration space. While the proposal has since dropped the “Donahue” designation, both buildings will still be graciously renovated for luxury urban living.

The Archer Residences will embody the architecture befitting the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. A detailed facade and new projections will be added to the building to assist in complimenting its design and character. Developers JDMD Owner LLC have expressed their keenness to pay attention to the general design, arrangement, texture, material, and color of the architectural features involved and the residence’s relationship to its surrounding buildings. The Archer Residences will truly embody the modern character of the famed Beacon Hill neighborhood.

While few renderings have yet been publicly released for the residences, more will be made available – in addition to detailed floor plans – on Bushari’s Boston Real Estate Crane Watch as construction progresses. Condominium sales are anticipated to begin by late 2017/early 2018.

Better Know a Neighborhood: Beacon Hill

Tucked away alongside of the Charles River stand the tall golden dome of the state’s capital building and the busy area surrounding it. Yes, Beacon Hill is a central part of the city, so why not live here?

Beacon Hill retains many of its old-world charm in cobblestone streets, narrow alley ways, and home entrances without a stoop opening up strait into the side walk. These are remnants of a bygone era, although many colonial structures have been retrofitted to fit modern time needs. There’s a few Victorian gems here too, as Boston grew, so did its wealthiest citizens. Historically, Beacon Hill has always been a hive of political and entrepreneurial power.

On the upper side of the hill stands one of the pioneering beacons of medicine, Mass General Hospital, still on its original place from when it was first built. Of course, it’s expanded since then. Even the original jail next to the hospital has been reconverted into a posh hotel named the Liberty Hotel (ironic, isn’t it?). In addition to the statehouse and a myriad of government buildings situated on Beacon Hill, is the Boston Commons and Public Gardens, our answer to Central Park. While not as big in scope, the park does provide for year-round attractions like a skating rink, swan boats, tennis courts, a baseball field, and several statues of famous Bostonians. The neighborhood also includes the famous Bull and Finch Pub from the TV show “Cheers.”

If you would like to learn more about the Beacon Hill, please check out our neighborhood page. Thinking about moving to Beacon Hill? At Bushari Group Real Estate, we can help you with your search. Contact us, and we can get you into the home that’s right for you.
