Unparalleled Views from Strada 234 Penthouse

The word “penthouse” often invokes positive thoughts, and even more so if that penthouse comes with a view. Potential Buyers at Strada 234 (234 Causeway Street), a luxury concierge building in Boston’s North End Waterfront are not left wanting with the panoramic views and amenities offered by unit 1209, a two-bedroom two-bathroom 1,233 square foot condo that has recently been listed for sale.

Strada 234 Waterfront Luxury Condos

First it was Wilkes Passage in the South End (see Mass Exodus from Wilkes Passage), then it was the Ritz Carlton towers in Midtown (see Ritz Carlton Flush with Available Condos), now, the 108-unit Strada 234 building adjacent to the North End along Boston’s Waterfront currently has a large inventory of 7 units available for sale. This could be related to the ramp up in the Spring / Summer selling season that is a typical cyclical pattern – this also falls in line with the strong percentage of Boston condo owners who plan to sell within the next several months that was evidenced in our latest Seller reader poll (see Boston Condo Blog Reader Poll).

Strada 234 is a 2004 development that features 24 hour concierge, a fitness room, and garage parking. Current units range in price from $449,000 to $1,259,000, and in size from 675 to 1,468 square feet. Price per square foot on these listings ranges from $506 to $857, with much of the variance coming from unit level and views.

Avenir Boston Condos Now Luxury Rental

Following suit with Harborview at the Navy Yard, Avenir Boston, a large-scale 241-unit condo development in Boston’s West End is officially changing directions, and will now become a luxury rental development rather than for-sale condos.

A Dennis Duffy design, Avenir Boston was to play host to condos with price tags up to $1.5 million. When the Sales Center opened, they were only able to put one unit under agreement. If you call the Sales Center today, you receive a recording that states “reservations are not being taken”, and calls go unreturned.

Not to worry. Construction is moving on, and Trinity Financial, a Boston-based real estate development firm (also behind The Carruth in Dorchester), is anticipating a 2009 completion of Avenir, at which time, the building will be turned over to Archstone Smith for management.

We’ve received a lot of inquiries on Avenir, especially from those of you who work close to the construction site, in anticipation of purchasing a unit. Until 2009, and a rental at that, we suggest looking at Strada 234, which is quite close to Avenir and offers upscale living in a development that is about half the size of Avenir. 2 one-bedroom units are currently available at Strada 234 (priced at $455K and $549K).
