By

Some of the most amazing luxury homes in Boston can be found at the InterContinental. This premier luxury building, located along the Greenway and straddling the Financial District, has 130 units with brilliant views of the Boston cityscape, the Fort Point Channel or the lovely Boston Harbor waterfront.

It’s modern and elegant lobby area is sure to impress anyone with it’s river rock entryway, stone walls and marble floors. But before entering InterContinental’s lovely main area, guests and residents are always greeted by a friendly doorman at any hour of the day, 24/7. The building features nothing but the best when it comes to full-service. Housekeeping, laundry, valet parking, concierge, room service; the InterContinental has it all.

Now the building is featuring a great unit for sale that is a one-bedroom with study and master bathroom for $895,000. Located on the 18th floor, Unit 18C offers a brilliant view of the city side and Greenway parks. It’s kitchen features custom cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances, making slaving over the hot stove a luxury pass-time.

It’s a Dog’s Life…

By

Written by Diane Giacobbi

Boston is not only filled with universities and students, hospitals and doctors, it is filled with dogs and their humans.  Each week I receive at least one inquiry for a sale or rental of a pet friendly property.  No longer just a suburban pet, the urban dog is welcome in many places – in certain outdoor patio dining, in private dog parks, and in some designated areas of public places.  The services for these pets are innumerable – dog boutiques for accessories and natural food items; doggie day care with transportation; daily walks; overnight vacation services, and in home veterinary calls.

Many condominium buildings along Boston’s Waterfront are pet friendly.  As a lover of dogs, I do everything in my power to find a home for my wonderful canine residents and their people.

Here is a current list of some of the pet friendly buildings in the Waterfront:

Intercontinental: Owners and TenantsBoston Dog Park 

Rowes Wharf: Owners only with Management approval

Commercial Wharf: Owners and Tenants

Lewis Wharf: No Dogs

“Old Ironsides” Annual Fourth of July Turnaround

By

In part of a 4th of July tradition, the U.S.S. Constitution raised its colors, hoisted its sails and left port from the Charlestown Navy Yard for its annual turnaround.  “Old Ironsides” is the oldest vessel still commissioned in the United States Naval fleet.

In the Boston Harbor last Monday, the warship sailed along the Boston Waterfront until it reached Castle Island where its crew conducted a 21-gun salute from its battery of canons before turning around and returning to its home for another year.  Here’s a video of this year’s event.  Doesn’t get any more patriotic than this… Happy Birthday, America.

When is the Right Time to Invest?

By

Posted By:  Carmela Laurella

Real estate tends to run inverse to both interest rates and availability of credit.

With today’s mortgage rates at historic lows and following a correction of historical magnitude, at this point in time, I would suggest that real estate represents a fair value.

Time & Money Balance

I would further suggest that with both mortgage rates and prices down, that investing in a new home is as affordable as it’s ever been in the U.S.

One final thought would be that the primary footpath of Boston’s Waterfront is basically built.  They won’t be making any more and there is scarcity value in that alone…

CL Waterfront Properties has the market expertise to help you find the perfect new luxury home in Boston; whether you want to live in one of the full service Boston Waterfront buildings, or a luxury home in Back Bay or Bay Village, we can help find a home to fit your lifestyle.

Luxurious Living at The Intercontinental

Sushi Teq Intercontinental BostonTequila Tuesdays at The Intercontinental. The outside bar and lounge area at The Intercontinental had their annual summer launch party. It is “THE” place to hang with friends and enjoy outdoor dining, drinking and music.  Tuesday nights are great with Tequila Tuesdays.  Sushi Teq has their bar outside and has samba dancers dancing around the patio and watch out… or they might grab you to get up and give it a whirl.  The backyard at The Intercontinental is not only great for adults but for kids as well. All of the younger residents in the building ride their bikes, play soccer and hockey and set up regular weekly dodgeball and kickball games.  It is a fantastic place to live for families of any age.

Rumbar Intercontinental  BostonBeing a resident, I know first hand how great the building is. There is a huge sense of community and the staff will bend over backwards to accommodate your every need.  We also cannot forget the spa. It is so luxurious and you can relax in the sauna/steam before or after your treatments.  There is also a great health club and indoor pool.  Rumbar in the lobby is also the place to be to watch your favorite local sports team…not to mention, most of them frequent the place and you might be so lucky as to have a drink or two with them.  I recommend the “Rumbullion”.

Did I mention the 15% discount on all food and services you receive as a resident?

Contact me if you’d like to schedule a viewing of one of the Residences at the Intercontinental.
