Great Floorplan at Court Square Press

Last weekend, we stopped by unit 306 at Court Square Press for an ad-hoc showing with a client. At that point, the unit had not yet officially gone into the MLS. It’s now officially on the market for sale. Unit 306 is a 1,129 square foot courtyard-facing unit that gets good sunlight throughout the day, and offers one of the best floorplans at Court Square Press.

Listed at $559,000 ($495 per square foot), Unit 306 boasts 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, an office space built into an old elevator shaft adjacent to one of the bedrooms (essentially making it a 2+), a high-end kitchen, and exposed brick and beam architecture. One deeded garage parking space is included, and HOA fees are $356 per month.

The concierge-served Court Square Press loft building sits in what we call “northern South Boston“, a part of the city that is seeing more development and attention over the past 8 years – there are some exciting things happening in the area in terms of further luxury residential buildout, more services and restaurants are in and coming, and Gillette is moving their headquarters across the street from Court Square Press.

Our Featured Open House will take place at Court Square Press (9 W. Broadway) on Sunday, April 27, 2008 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Tell the listing agent that you read about the open house here at the Boston Condo Blog. Read more about Court Square Press history.

Court Square Press South Boston Open House

Our Featured Open House of the week has found one of the best units at the Court Square Press building in South Boston.

Unit 416, priced currently at $539,000 after 2 price reductions, this 936 square foot unit on the 4th floor, with excellent views and light, has the capability of being converted from a one-bedroom into a two-bedroom loft (optional floor plan included). High-end finishes through the kitchen, and two bathrooms. The exposed brick and beam give this unit character, and the amenities of the Court Square Press development (as well as the neighboring Macallen to which owners have access) boast a full fitness center, lap pool, outdoor grills, private screen room with kitchen and bath, 24-hour concierge, and deeded garage parking valued in the neighborhood of $50,000.

New South Boston Condos at Leachmore Point

South Boston will have a new gateway building breaking ground in 2008. The makers of Court Square Press and the Macallen Building, Pappas Enterprises, has obtained approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority to move forward on a 64-unit condo development that will sit above the existing Broadway Red-Line T-Stop at the entrance to South Boston after crossing the Broadway Bridge. The new South Boston development will be called Leachmore Point.

Sitting at 11 West Broadway, Leachmore Point will be architected as a brick and glass eight-story structure, a creation of Margulies & Associates, a Boston-based architecture and design firm. The new Leachmore Point building will sit at the corner of Broadway and Dorchester Avenue across from the existing 2004 Court Square Press condo development, and the recently opened Macallen Building – Phase I and II of Pappas’ vision for the Broadway T-Stop area.

The project will consist of 64 residential units, including 4,700 square feet of first floor retail (3 retail spaces), along with 69 underground parking spaces.

Sources estimate that ground will break on Leachmore Point sometime during the spring of 2008, and they will shoot for an 18 month construction cycle, which puts an anticipated occupancy date into late 2009. Leachmore Point will offer one, two, and three-bedroom units, with a range of 850 to 1,400 square feet, as well as four penthouse condos that will boast stunning views of downtown Boston, the Fort Point Channel in the Seaport District, and Boston Harbor.

Leachmore Point will be entirely green, everything that Pappas does moving forward will be green construction. Leachmore will be a boutique luxury development, with a fabulous redesign of the Broadway T-Stop,” says Marsha Yamaykina of Pappas Enterprises.

Similar to the Macallen Building (Boston’s first LEED certified condo development), the roof at Leachmore Point will be green – in plan is a 2,000 square foot pocket park, creating a green view for the neighbors living in the condominiums carved out of the old St. Peter and Paul’s Church, which sits across a small parking lot from the anticipated site of Leachmore Point. Other green features of the new development will include cisterns that collect rainwater runoff for irrigating the roof-level park, Zipcars, bicycle racks, and LED lighting that uses a photovoltaic energy system.

Leachmore Point will join the Lofts at 36 A, Allele Boston, Macallen Building, 125 B Street Lofts, 80 A Street, and Court Square Press in a complete redevelopment of the northern side of South Boston. The Broadway T-Stop area of South Boston now joins its sister neighborhood, the Seaport District, as one of the hottest areas of Boston real estate.
