1330 Boylston Mixed-Use Rental Development

Boylston Street is seeing a lot of development this year, with the Boston Mandarin Oriental, and now, the Samuel & Associates mixed-use development at 1330 Boylston.

1330 Boylston is a 200+ unit upscale rental development, which will also offer commercial and retail space. Leasing of units at 1330 Boylston will begin in April 2008, and the tentative move-in date for the 200+ apartments is August 2008. We have confirmed with Samuel & Associates that the entire development will be rental, no condos for sale.

1330 Boylston will feature a Fitness Center, Club Room, WIFI, Concierge services, garage parking, and spectacular skyline views. Rental units will boast stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, in-unit washers & dryers, walk-in closets, and individually controlled heat and central air.

Something interesting that 1330 Boylston has done is provide a live construction cam to see up-to-the-minute development progress from a neighboring building. Condo developments (rather than rentals) should take note of this unique feature moving forward – some developments (Battery Wharf, and FP3 Boston for instance) have picked up on this as something that potential buyers want to see, as well as buyers who have already made reservations for units, but it needs to be leveraged more going forward as buyers want access to real time high-quality information.
