Over the past several years there has been a vast amount of residential construction in downtown Boston, the majority of which has been rental buildings. After going through many of these new buildings many of them seem to be mirror images of one another. Most offer 24/7 concierge, garage parking, function rooms and typically some common outdoor space. One Canal is definitely an exception and has raised the bar for apartment complexes throughout the city. The building features four different common outdoor spaces including a gorgeous roof deck pool area with stunning views of the Skyline and Harbor. The outdoor areas feature fire pits, fireplaces, drills and even a projection TV. There is a beautifully designed lounge with custom furniture, a flat screen TV and pool table. Most impressive are the units themselves which are well laid out and were built with high-end condo like finishes. This building is an excellent option for anyone looking for an apartment in a dynamic location and something a cut-above the typically rental building.
