The Modern, aptly named, is a modern building that was recently constructed in 2007. It’s a seven-story building that’s home to 25 luxury units in Boston’s artistic South End. In this building, most of the units feature floor-to-ceiling windows and lavish interior finishes by the award-winning designer Dennis Duffy. Units range in size from 845 square foot one-bedrooms to 1,335 square foot two-bedroom penthouses ranging in price of $400,000 to $1.5 million. The Modern units also feature espresso flooring and the views from each condo unit capture the South End incredible light and breathtaking views.
The Modern also offers residents access to a large common roof deck that’s accessible via elevator. The Modern has incredible private terraces, and in-building parking is available – this is ideal considering the dicey parking situations caused by rough historic Boston winters.
The South End is one of Boston’s most vibrant communities. This tree-lined neighborhood is known for its fine dining, art galleries and parks. Local attractions include a brand new Whole Foods that everyone in the Hub seems to love, Starbucks and local coffee shops alike, and many great restaurants and bars that attract many locals and tourists.
This convenient location has great access to public transportation and major highways. You can conveniently travel to Boston’s surrounding neighborhoods, but with all that the South End had to offer, there is really no reason to leave.
The South End was built on the filled tidal flats during the mid-1800s. The neighborhood was designed to attract the wealth merchant class, with large Victorian townhouses surrounding park squares. At the turn of the century, wealthier Bostonians chose neighboring Back Bay instead of the South End, opening the area to a diverse working class. The signature South End townhouses were carved into apartments and lodging houses.
In the 1950s, the South End was selected as an urban renewal area, with scattered affordable housing developments constructed throughout the neighborhood. The area began to be revitalized by an influx of young professionals moving to the neighborhood, restoring the housing stock and turning many of the units into larger apartments, condominiums, and single family homes.
The area’s commercial centers run along Massachusetts Avenue, Tremont Street and Washington Street and serves increasingly diverse populations. Popular upscale restaurants and art galleries have added to the area’s unique character.
