Penny Savings Bank Featured Open House

The 23-unique boutique luxury condo development in the former Penny Savings Bank is our Featured Open House of the week. Earlier this year, The pre-war bank in Boston’s South End was completely renovated and a glass enclosure was added to the top of the original structure to create what is now The Residences at Penny Savings Bank.

The white marble and granite exterior of the Bank offers various layouts from studios (roughly 800 square feet and an HOA fee of $239) to two-bedroom two-bathroom condos (roughly 1,600 square feet and an HOA fee of $494). Living areas offer finished concrete floors (perhaps not as nice as our favorites stained and scored floors at the Lofts at 36 A) or walnut hardwood floors. All kitchens feature Viking and Best appointments. The master baths have limestone floors and “river rock” shower enclosures. Some units include private terraces or roof decks. Parking is available in the onsite underground garage for an additional charge.

Note that with a new marketing agent taking over the property, the price range for units has been slightly updated, moving the low-end down from $665,000 to $595,000 ($730 per square foot).

The Penny Savings Bank joins the recently opened D4 Police Station Condo Development as a true landmark property in Boston real estate. Along Washington Street, the ground floor of the development will house two commercial units, the banQ Restaurant, as well as a Citibank branch.

Remember that Daylight Saving Time has ended today, so turn your clocks back before heading out to see these units. The Open House will take place on Sunday, November 4, 2007 from 2 – 4pm at 30 Union Park Street in Boston’s South End (northeast corner of Washington and Union Park).
