With the $71 million boutique luxury residential project at the Boston East site on Border Street set to open in December, Trinity Financial is following in the footsteps of other successful waterfront development projects.
With projects like Clippership Wharf selling out prior to the actual opening of the development, Boston East’s property manager Trinity Financial announced it will begin pre-leasing apartments for the waterfront project.
As part of the pre-leasing process Trinity Financial has opened a temporary Marketing Center located adjacent to the site at 80 Border Street. There, prospective residents can tour a model unit and experience the unique design and amenities at Boston East. The 80 Border Street building is also home to the East Boston Artist Group studios and the Atlantic Works Gallery.
“Boston East is the most exciting new residential community in Boston – featuring gorgeous water and city views, a ton of wide open space, beautiful finishes and outstanding amenities,” said Development Vice President at Trinity Financial Abby Goldenfarb. “We have created some of the best waterfront luxury living without the luxury prices, and we’re excited to begin pre-leasing for our newest community that is set to open this December. We’ve already received interest in the building, so we are expecting these waterfront homes to be in high demand.”
Located directly on Boston Harbor and in close proximity to Downtown Boston and the MBTA, Boston East is a boutique, mid-rise residential community that features 200 units, including six artist live-work-sell units.
Boston East is designed by Boston-based ICON architecture, inc. and takes advantage the views of the Harbor and downtown Boston with large floor-to-ceiling windows in many units, ample outdoor space, patios and decks and a large rooftop lounge. Community amenities include a Harbor Walk that extends beyond the development, the Yard and fire pit, a kayak and paddle-board launch, an indoor gym, and even a dog spa. A large, first floor gallery overlooking the ocean will also showcase work from local and regional artists.
The interiors of Boston East’s common spaces and residential units were created by Cortney and Robert Novogratz – a Los Angeles-based husband and wife design team who have conceived some of the most unique living spaces across the country. The Novogratzes, who are known for their unique taste and style, have been showcased several times on HGTV.
Goldenfarb said residents can expect the interior to reflect influences from Eastie’s rich history and the nearby marinas and shipyards in a non-traditional way. Boston East units include open concept floor plans, custom designed walk in closets, plank flooring, quartz countertops, and high-end GE slate appliances.
“Trinity and the East Boston Community Development Corporation have worked for many years with the community and the city on Boston East and other developments, and we’re thrilled that we are in the heart of thriving East Boston – a neighborhood that features outstanding restaurants, art galleries, outdoor activities and other amenities,” said Goldenfarb. “Boston East’s design reflects this rich neighborhood history while offering residents high-end living, top-of-line amenities and an active lifestyle that incorporates arts and community.”
