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.
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.
The Brighton neighborhood has become a hotbed for suburban residential developments. While downtown Boston sees an influx of high-rise towers throughout the city, its surrounding suburbs have boomed with modern dwellings. Its location is ideal for those looking for residential or commercial properties cheaper than downtown, but still relatively close to job centers in the city. Credit for its boom can be given to the rise of commercial activity following New Balance’s footsteps into the area. The Brighton neighborhood has since become a thriving hub of boutique businesses and residences flanked by lush green parks and gardens.
Amongst the exciting new developments underway in the neighborhood is The Parsons residences at 88-94 Parsons Street.
The multi-family project, which is now undergoing interior finishing, will bring four outstanding new town homes to a vibrant street in Brighton. The Parsons is comprised of 2+ bedroom, 3.5 bathroom residences with spacious, open layouts ranging from 1,600 to 1,700 square-feet. The residences are complete with a shared patio and parking. Its sleek, contemporary architecture reflects the dynamic image of its redeveloped suburban space.
Residents will benefit from The Parsons‘ close proximity to Saint Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Harvard Business School and New Balance Headquarters. Its convenient location, situated by the Massachusetts Turnpike is ideal for commuters and those ready to be whisked off to more urban excitement.
These four residences will be soon hitting the market. Inquire now at BostonRealEstate.com.
