Henry -- especially as an ABf for the next couple of years -- you've got the St. Regis Residences Tower to the left forward and just below and Fidelity's redo of Commonwealth Pier [once again] directly in front to the right -- you'd almost feel in the midst of the constructionI would absolutely love to have this view from my living room.
Exactly.. for units in this position especially, you could just picture how much of the water view will be obstructed by St. Regis.That view won't exist in 12 months...
If you look around at current or recently sold prices of other properties in the area and see the price difference between unobstructed (today and in the future) water view units and non-water view units, the term "million dollar views" could be applied quite literally, generally speaking.Czervik -- my question -- how does the price on the same floor differ from looking out at the water to looking at well GE and the BCEC or perhaps the hole in the ground for Amazon?
Not sure when the last time you have been down there, but the best unobstructed views in the area for residential would certainly be in some of the units in Pier 4, 22 Liberty, and 50 Liberty, in no particular order.Park Lane, although the oldest in Seaport, has the best unobstructed view and it will always stay unobstructed because of the Pavilion.
Ah ok, and I meant the new condos on Pier 4, not the "100 Pier 4" apartments.. god, those names must confuse a lot of people. What were they thinking?Well as a former resident of Pier 4, 99% are obstructed now. Unless you are floors 17 or above I believe, facing the airport.
Agreed on the other 2, I was thinking rentals not condos.
Stick -- a good assessment -- except forIf a lot of high end stores end up filling up here, along with inside the courtyard, then over into harbor way and up through harbor square, I feel like this could become the shopping mecca of Boston. Then you get the waterfront as well and hopefully some good restaurants over at pier 4 and 150 seaport.... its going to be pretty cool. The ICA is also right around the corner to boot along with the Iraq/Afghan veterans memorial. I think its pretty cool that the city has all of its great neighborhoods still but also theres a brand new modern one coming along over here on the waterfront to give the city a lot of variety. Its pretty cool too how fort point is kind of the seaports north end, so even though its all new and modern youre only a couple streets away from historic Boston.
I don't think the concept of "Shopping Mecca" is relevant anymore -- there are plenty of retail sq. ft. having vacancy signs -- not nearly as much local shopping is supportable as in the past -- on-line and the hybrid on-line brick and mortar [e.g. Target, Walmart] are sucking up a lot of demand for the former small shops that used to cluster on places such as Bromfield St.. Today retail on the street mostly means services that you can't get on-line [e.g. hair and nails] as well as restaurants, food and beer/wine.I feel like this could become the shopping mecca of Boston.
