New tower to house hundreds of Boston luxury condos

Skanska USA Commercial Development and Twining Properties have proposed plans for a 300-unit residential apartment tower, with an additional 25,000 square feet of retail space, to be built in the Seaport Square community. The tower, expected to be called Watermark Seaport, will be located at the corner of Seaport Boulevard and Boston Wharf Road. Watermark Seaport is just one of the proposed projects within the 25-acre Seaport Square. According to Alex Twining, CEO of Twining Properties, “Watermark Seaport will link the exciting Fort Point community to Seaport Square and the Waterfront with apartments, shops, restaurants and open space”.

The new tower is just one part of the 25 acre Seaport Square community, a cornerstone of the transformation of this once quiet section of Boston’s Seaport into the Innovation District of today, thriving and bustling with activity. The area is expanding rapidly, with plans to create many new Boston Waterfront properties in the coming years.

How Much House Does A Million Dollars Buy You?

63 Atlantic Ave. #11-E

MSN Real Estate recently posed this question, along with a slideshow of some million dollar properties nationwide – you can read the article here. Carmela Laurella was featured along with her exclusive penthouse listing in the Prince building, listed at $979,000. “(With) the combination of realistically priced homes, all-time-low interest rates and improving unemployment, consumers once again have confidence and feel that it is a good time to invest in property,” Laurella said. “Additionally, we have limited inventory on the waterfront and tremendous buyer demand.”

A million dollars buys you a lot of Prince Building condo in this case. A corner penthouse with a large private balcony facing the Harbor, this is a real value among Boston waterfront properties. Inside, cathedral ceilings and maple floors await, along with floor to ceiling windows, a large kitchen with skylight, and a master bedroom with en-suite bath and breathtaking views of the Zakim bridge and historic North End.

To find out more about this amazing penthouse or any of our other fine Boston luxury condos, contact CL waterfront today.

Scaffolding has finally come down on the side of Saint Leonard’s church facing the Peace Garden – showing a new red Catholic cross. Excellent visibility from Hanover Street makes this new addition to the area an instant landmark, sure to boost the already high value of North End real estate. Repairs to the wall and the addition of the cross are part of a larger renovation project for the garden;  the new cross sits across from the mural painted by local artist Nathan Swain.

The mural, featuring verdant greenery in keeping with the Peace Garden overlook came first in the sprucing up of the area. Artist Swain explains: “I approached the church and I also talked to Frank the owner of Assagio. They both liked the idea of covering the blank ugly wall with something green. I had Boston Building Wraps print and install the banner.”

St. Leonard’s was the first Roman Catholic Church in New England built by immigrants from Italy, in 1873. It is located at the corner of Hanover and Prince Streets in the heart of the historic North End, just steps from the finest Boston waterfront properties.  St. Leonard’s is known for its Saint Anthony shrine in the downstairs church, the oldest shrine to the saint in Boston. The Peace Garden is known to all in the neighborhood and beyond as a peaceful retreat from the busy streets of the North End. To find out more about living in this historic part of Boston, contact CL Waterfront Properties today.

A Mild Boston Winter

Due to the mild winter, many owners in the Waterfront / North End neighborhood have decided to put their properties on the market earlier than normal.   Even regardless of the unusually warm weather, the market appears to be getting stronger.  We have seen an influx of both motivated buyers and sellers in the marketplace of late. While typically New Englanders are battling the elements at this time of year, we have had the luxury of a mild winter, making it much easier for buyers to look at potential Boston waterfront properties and for sellers to showcase their homes.

At CL Waterfront Properties, we have a very positive outlook for the housing market in 2012, and urge sellers not to delay – put your home on the market as soon as possible!  Within just the first two weeks of the year, there have been ten new properties listed in the Waterfront / North End neighborhood, and there are currently seventeen properties that either have accepted offers or are under agreement. It’s an exciting time to be involved in luxury Boston real estate! For more information about the selling and listing prices for the Waterfront/North End in the near year, please contact Scott Accorsini today.

Holiday Spirit in Downtown Boston

With the holidays right around the corner, sales activity for Boston waterfront properties has increased. Not only has this activity been a trend along the Waterfront, November marked the fifth straight month in which home sales have improved nationwide, according to an article in the Boston Globe, December 22, 2011.

Real estate professionals agree that sellers have become more realistic about their Boston luxury condos‘ values. The Boston Globe recently quoted Sheryl Simon, a Principal with Benoit, Mizner, Simon & Co., about this topic: “The sellers have now realized that they are not going to get the prices their neighbors got in 2005, 2006, 2007”. Not only have home sales increased, but cash buyers are up about 30 percent compared to this time last year.

Whether you’re a cash buyer or taking out a mortgage, now is a great time with to buy, with motivated sellers and rates in the low 4’s. Don’t hesitate – contact CL Waterfront Properties today! Happy Holidays!

QR Codes – The Hottest Thing in Real Estate!

Filed under: Boston Waterfront Real Estate Market, Carmela Laurella, CL Waterfront Properties NEWS. • Tags: , . By

QR Codes are revolutionizing Boston real estate!

14 million Americans used QR codes this past June alone, according to a recent ComScore study – and useage is rising dramatically. You’ve probably already seen QR codes, although you might not know exactly what they do or what purpose they serve.

QR codes work a lot like the bar codes you see on items in the grocery store – with one major exception. Bar codes store minimal info about an item, typically the stock number and often also the price. QR codes are keyed to a specific URL – so they can take you with a quick scan of a smartphone to the web address of an amazing Boston luxury condo! We have been using QR codes for quite a while now, on pretty much any printed material we generate. The codes are a very simple and useful way to give people access to more information than you can share with someone in print – and by bringing people to your website, you can interact with them on a much more personal, social level.

Click the QR codes you see on listing sheets in the window of our Waterfront offices, on materials you print from this site, and on brochures you see at our open houses to go directly to full details about any of our fabulous Boston waterfront properties. To find out more about the luxury Boston real estate we represent or to learn more about how we use technology to help our clients sell for top dollar or find the perfect new home, contact CL Waterfront Properties today – or scan one of our QR codes with your smartphone!
