We have been receiving an elevated number of inquiries regarding Boston lofts at the Seaport District’s Channel Center development. The Channel Center lofts development is a 2005 mixed-use development, comprising both new construction and renovation of existing warehouse space – residences are spread across three separate addresses at 15, 25, and 35 Channel Center.

Currently, there are six (6) listings available at Channel Center (see currently available listings 8 MB PDF), ranging in square footage from 1,489 to 2,323, and in price from $549K to $1.325 million. Regardless of which address you have at the development, you’re in for a loft feel (high ceilings, flowing and oftentimes open, floorplans), what changes will be the style of the loft feel from true exposed brick and beam architecture, to a more modern look with drywall versus the brick.

Channel Center Seaport District Lofts Open Houses

Our Featured Open House of the week is taking place at the Channel Center condo development in Boston’s Seaport District. The development, located at 25-35 Channel Center Street opened in 2004, a combination of a loft-conversion of an existing warehouse, and the development of a new modern lofty-style condo building.

You’ll have the opportunity to tour two (2) units today in the development, which is located just up the street from Fort Point Place (21 Wormwood Street), and still quite close to the under construction FP3 development.

Unit 406 is a 1,489 square foot loft priced at $589,000 that features great brick and beam detail. Garage parking is not included, but the Seller has agreed to pay for 2 years of parking fees in the Channel Center lot located just south of the development.

New FP3 Boston Condo Photos

The Seaport District of Boston is literally bustling with activity. FP3 Boston is the forerunner for the area, pushing through with development while others have been slowing, and doing a lot of the leg work in marketing the area. FP3 is now aiming for a Q2 2008 occupancy date, and you can see by the exclusive photos below, that construction is moving right along.

FP3 is a Congress Street condo development that includes the renovation of two existing buildings, the construction of a third infill building, and the creation of three upper-level floors set back from the street – all to create 90+ high-end loft-style condos.

Let’s start with the photo immediate below, which provides a good survey, seen from the northwestern end of Congress Street, looking back down towards the new convention center – immediately in the foreground is the fire house, the green mesh to the right of that is the new building being constructed, and the two buildings adjacent to the green meshing are the structures being renovated, thus making up the three building FP3 condo development.

The below two photos provide you slightly different angles of the construction, and most importantly, give a glimpse into the three-floor structure that is being constructed on top of the buildings, which will be set back from the street – these are the floors that will house outdoor terraces (see related story FP3 Boston Condos with Outdoor Terraces). For more information on FP3 Boston, please contact us.

Channel Center Seaport District Condos & Lofts

Channel Center, a two-building condo loft development in Boston’s Seaport District, is seeing a lot of market action right now, with price changes and new units hitting the market over the past several days, there are now a total of ten available units across the development. The Channel Center development is steps from Fort Point Place at 21 Wormwood Street, and less than half a mile down the street from the new FP3 Boston development.

According to John Keith, around 2004, the Channel Center condominiums at 25-35 Channel Street opened. They did pretty well with sales (although a couple of units stayed on the market, for years). There were two buildings – a converted loft building and a brand-new, modern-looking one, next door. Many of the units in the new building were duplexes with great 20-foot high ceilings. The original developer, Beacon Capital Partners, had grand plans to redesign the entire street, currently made up of a mixture of low-rise industrial and office buildings (with a smattering of artist space, spaced intermittently along the street). They bailed out, last year. The residential sales market cooled (although prices did not), so they decided to pocket their profit and move on.

As reported on August 15, 2007, Commonwealth Center Holdings VAF secured $67 million, and is taking on the second phase of the 1.6 million square foot Channel Center project originally conceived by Beacon Capital Partners, rehabbing the remainder of the area with new housing, office, and retail. Work will commence immediately on renovating three brick buildings lining A Street known as 10, 20, and 30 Channel Center.

As mentioned, there are currently 10 available units (click on link to see listing details for all 10), and what we like about Channel Center in the Fort Point Channel area is the projected $67 million project that will lead to the completion of what was started back in 2004. What does this mean for current residents and potential buyers? Short to medium-term (as well as long-term) gains in equity.

Given the amount of development, money, infrastructure, and attention that the Seaport District is getting these days, this can only lead to positive things as it relates to condo and loft values.

Contact us for more information on any of the Channel Center units, as well as anything else across the city. We have access to every condo in Boston, and enjoy representing buyers.

Roughly 15 units in the 97-unit FP3 Boston development have been reserved. There are many great buys currently available for occupancy, mainly $550 per square foot and under, in the Seaport District and South Boston (in the Broadway T-stop area). Contact us for more information.

FP3 Boston Condos Open House

You may see us down at FP3 Boston this Sunday for an open house. The last time we stopped in, a week ago, construction was progressing, but the gaping holes in the northwest part of the building show us that they have a long way to go before their Spring 2008 completion.

FP3 Boston Condos

The sales center at FP3Boston, located at 368 Congress Street in the Seaport District, will host an open house from 12-4 pm each Sunday. Preconstruction condos are available for reservation on the 97 unit condo development in Boston’s Fort Point Channel – contact us for more information.
