125 B Street Lofts Now Sold Out

According to the Boston MLS, as of March 14, 2008, the last two lofts at 125 B Street Lofts are now under agreement. Built in 1856, the former schoolhouse was converted into high-end lofts in 2006. The 16 lofts in the building sold relatively quickly, save the last two units.

The exposed brick and soaring ceilings makes these units feel very large, and B Street is substantially more quiet than A Street in terms of road noise. As northern South Boston continues to get built out, resale units in this development will be sought after.

Featured Open House at 125 B Street Lofts

Back in September, we featured an open house at the lofts at 125 B Street, and this week again, our Featured Open House is the 125 B Street Lofts in South Boston / Seaport District. We love this building for its tall ceilings, exposed brick and beam, and modern and clean finishes.

Originally a schoolhouse, 125 B Street has been converted into 16 luxury lofts, featuring onsite parking in an adjacent lot. Two lofts now remain, all corner facing with double exposures, right around 1,100 square feet, listed at $534K and $544K,

The 125 B Street Lofts Open House will take place on Sunday, February 17, 2008 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM . When stopping in, let Julie Holenport, the listing agent, know that you read about the open house on the Boston Condo Blog. For more details, or to submit an offer, please contact us.

South Boston Featured Open Houses

Our Featured Open House of the week will take place at 253 E Street, which we covered yesterday, as perhaps the best true two-bedroom condos on the market in South Boston right now (see Best 2 Bedroom South Boston Condos). The units are being marketed by The Terrier Group, a brokerage specializing in South Boston property. Stop in to see the high-end finishes on on Sunday, January 27, 2008 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM.

While you are out and about, we suggest that you stop into the renovated schoolhouse at 125 B Street, several blocks away from 253 E Street. 125 B Street (see 125 B Street on the Boston Condo Blog) is a recently converted condo development, featuring soaring ceilings and exposed brick. 2 units remain in the development, both listed at a little over $500K. The open house at 125 B Street takes place on Sunday, January 27, 2008 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM.

As discussed in recent comments on the blog, these developments are quite unique, 253 E Street being more of your classic condo with well-appointed detail, and 125 B Street being more the loft style condo with exposed brick and high ceilings.  Both are well done, and worth a look.

125 B Street Lofts Open House

Our Featured Open House of the week is the 125 B Street Lofts in South Boston / Seaport District. An old schoolhouse has been converted into 16 high-end lofts with soaring ceilings, exposed brick and beam, and an old elevator shaft that doubles as an office nook.

Three lofts remain, all corner facing with double exposures, right around 1,100 square feet, and priced from $539,000 to $589,000. Parking is included in the lot adjacent to the building.

The 125 B Street Lofts Open House will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2007 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. If you stop in, let the listing agent know that Boston Condo Guy sent you. For more details, or to submit an offer, please contact us using the link at the top of this page.

125 B Street Luxury Seaport District Lofts

We’ve had the pleasure of spending a fair amount of time lately at a renovated schoolhouse in Boston’s Seaport District, now known as the 125 B Street Lofts. The 150-year-old schoolhouse, steps away from the Red Line’s Broadway T-Stop, is a 16-unit luxury loft conversion that opened to residents in December of 2006.

There are currently 5 units remaining, all in the 1,100 square foot range, priced from $499,000 to $589,000 ($472 – $520 per square foot), all with a deeded parking space included in the adjacent parking lot. The units vary in price for reasons such as placement in the building, views, and inclusion of outdoor balcony space.

The developer definitely went all out with these units with high-end finishes, and the ceilings simply soar over your head, making the space feel even more expansive than it already is. A nice touch at 125 B Street was the units that have an office nook (with multiple windows) constructed in what was once the school’s elevator shaft – very cool.

Make a note that the units are listed as two-bedrooms, however, the walls are not built out for the second bedroom in most units – something that the developer could easily accommodate at the buyer’s discretion. All 5 remaining units come with two bathrooms. Units are wired for satellite TV, and Verizon phone and DSL (Fios is not yet available, and Comcast is not in the building).

Would we recommend this development over some of the other trendy Seaport District / South Boston condo developments clustered around the Broadway T-Stop (Macallen, Court Square Press, Allele, Lofts at 36 A, etc.), more than likely, yes. You’re slightly removed from the hustle and noise of Broadway and A Street in a superbly insulated building, and the space and craftsmanship are definitely top notch. It’s a standout winner for short to medium-term positive equity in what is quickly becoming the next South End of Boston.

Below is an exclusive Boston Condo Guy outdoor shot of the 125 B Street Lofts (you’ll be hard pressed to find another outdoor facade photo on the Internet at the moment), and a stock interior shot of the model unit. Please contact us for a showing, or to place an offer on any of the remaining units.
