Allele Condos South Boston Near Completion

Dorchester Avenue in northern South Boston has been a hotbed of activity over the past several years, with multiple condo developments taking shape within a one block radius, including one of the latest developments, Allele.

Allele Boston is a 48-unit high-end condo development (prices start in the $400’s) that sits at the northeast corner of Dorchester Avenue and W 4th Street, opposite the Macallen Building, and adjacent to the Lofts at 36 A. While the Allele development may not feature the same amenities that one would experience with the Macallen / Court Square Press combination across the street, Allele does provide great interior packages (bamboo flooring, Bosch appliances, huge dual showers, etc), large signature bow front units (the 01 floorplan), and private balconies.

The exclusive time series photos above show construction nearing completion at Allele.

A model unit on the 4th floor has been open to potential Buyers for several weeks now, allowing you to get a feel for a finished floorplan. As of last week, the developer was still running a promotion where the next 4 units that go Under Agreement will be given a free deeded garage parking space (parking is typically purchased separately for $40K).

A certificate of occupancy is expected in the June / July timeframe. One final note, it is rumored that the ground floor commercial restaurant space will not be occupied by Jae’s Cafe – two other restaurateurs are in talks currently on occupying the space (no names have been officially released).

Carruth Condos in Dorchester a Relief

Have you heard of it? The Carruth.

Similar to 285 Columbus Lofts, a new loft-style condo development on the border of the South End and Back Bay that overlooks the Back Bay T Stop, the Carruth overlooks a major public transportation hub at the Ashmont transit station. Both developments will boast easy T access, but only one can be had for $300 per square foot – the Carruth. Pricing at the Carruth ranges from $269,000 and $379,000, including garage parking.

With the continuing upward trend in Boston condo prices, the Carruth condos in Dorchester, a Dennis Duffy design, will provide pricing relief to Bostonians like a cool glass of water on a hot day. You’re paying for a lot of things when you buy a piece of city-center Boston real estate, namely location, which is of key importance to a lot of people, however, the Carruth, at 20 minutes outside downtown, provides a great option for those who don’t want or need core downtown accommodations.

The Carruth is currently accepting reservations for a 2008 opening, use the Contact Us link at the top of this page for more information on the for sale condos.

Tapeo Restaurant to Open in Allele South Boston

We’ve been informed that Tapeo of Newbury Street will open a second restaurant near the Red Line Broadway T-Step area in the ground floor of Allele Boston, a new boutique South Boston condo development at 150 Dorchester Avenue slated for an early 2008 opening.

Tapeo will create a new name, possibly “Sapeo“, and will plan to open following the February / March opening of Allele. Sapeo South Boston will acquire a significant amount of outdoor space along Dorchester Avenue, and it’s rumored that the current retail space on the ground floor of Allele will not be large enough, so Tapeo / Sapeo will pursue acquiring two ground floor condo units to add to their planned space.

The Allele condos are moving along quickly, from the below exclusive picture taken yesterday from the roof deck of the Lofts at 36 A, you can see that exterior work, including balconies, windows, and brick siding, is progressing. For more information about Allele, or any of the hot new developments in South Boston, please contact us.
