Facade Visible at Bryant on Columbus

Columbus Avenue, slicing the Back Bay and the South End, is home to multiple condo developments, both new and old.  285 Columbus Lofts recently completed construction and is approximately 90% sold.  While just a stone’s throw from that site at the corner of Clarendon and Columbus is the Bryant.

We’ve been tracking the Bryant since before it broke ground, and provide the only exclusive time-series photo set of the development through construction (see Bryant on Columbus).  Recently, the Bryant began revealing its face to the outside world.  Moving away the construction tarps, Bostonians are getting their first look at the facade of the Bryant on Columbus, and it appears as though it will do a good job of blending a clean, and perhaps stately, polished looking finish with the older neighboring buildings.

While nearby residents to the Bryant have not enjoyed the constant construction noise, they will be happy to know that their property values will go up as a result of having a boutique luxury building nearby, beautifying the area along Columbus, and injecting more demand into local businesses.

The Bryant on Columbus currently lists 11 units, only part of their existing inventory, available in the MLS, providing a good feel for what is available in the building – mainly three-bedroom units, as well as an unprecedented four-bedroom unit, all ranging in size and price from approximately 1,900 to 2,800 square feet and $1,550,000 to $2,950,000 (penthouse).  The Bryant will be a unique addition to the area, for more information and/or to setup a tour of the sales center, please contact us.

According to inside sources, the Bryant on Columbus at 303 Columbus Avenue (Google Map) on the border of Boston’s Back Bay and the South End has poured its first concrete wall as part of its underground parking garage. According to construction sources, we should begin to see part of the structure rise out of the ground within the next few months. We have the below exclusive construction photos.

The Bryant is scheduled for a June 2008 completion, however, looking at the difference in progress between the Bryant and other similarly scheduled developments (i.e. the Mandarin Oriental, FP3 Boston), the Bryant has to pick up the pace. For preconstruction pricing, or to make a reservation for a unit at any of the above-mentioned condo developments, please contact us.

The Bryant on Columbus Condo Update

Construction continues at the Bryant on Columbus, a new 50-unit luxury condo development in the Back Bay at 303 Columbus Avenue. If you recall, the Bryant condos will be known not just for their class and style, but for their size. Units will be built out with a minimum of two bedrooms – there is talk of including a limited amount of one-bedroom units into the layout of the building, but the development team has yet to make a definitive decision as to their inclusion.

The Bryant on Columbus Boston Condos

It’s always amazing to see a mega structure rise from the ground out of nothing, and The Bryant on Columbus has that meager beginning wrapped up nicely. Slated for a June 2008 completion, The Bryant construction has been steadily progressing since it broke ground back in late 2006.

The Bryant on Columbus Boston Condos Construction

We stopped by the construction site yesterday to see work continuing on the foundation and parking garage. The Bryant on Columbus is stating that they will have rare two and three bedroom condo units in their Back Bay / South End location (the Bryant will sit on Columbus avenue on the border between the two Boston neighborhoods, just south of the Back Bay Orange Line T Stop). The number of smaller, and thus less expensive, units is still to be determined.

Bryant on Columbus – Wow…Move in Today!

Can you believe it, the Bryant on Columbus condos are now built and ready for you to move in! At least that’s what this picture is showing, right? Well, unfortunately, there is still a big hole in the ground with a large crane in the middle of it….so, you can’t move in just yet, but this picture is a nice mock-up of what the development will look like in a couple of years.

The Bryant – Boston Condos Making Noise

The buzz is out on the streets, those being Columbus Avenue and Dartmouth – the site of one of Boston’s newest condo developments in the South End, The Bryant on Columbus. Local residents to the 50-unit mixed-use complex, which will see unusually large living areas, are perhaps doing more complaining than talking about the new complex.

Demolition and excavation has rendered structural damage for neighbors to The Bryant Condos. Imagine coming home only to find a nice crack in your ceramic tile floor…welcome to the neighborhood! Neighbors to the condo complex construction are also on a regimented sleep schedule, with a construction wake-up call beginning at 6:30 am – is breakfast being provided?

Residents in the area may chip in on the weekends to see this complex brought to fruition before its established Spring June August 2008 completion date. Stay tuned for more breaking news.
