The last waterfront condominium building in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood is nearing completion.
The St. Regis Residences project is being built on the former site of Whiskey Priest and Atlantic Beer Garden on Seaport Boulevard. The unique glass building design was first sketched on a cocktail napkin by famed architect Howard Eklus and is meant to resemble a sail unfurling in the wind, according to the company.
Boston’s seaport has undergone a massive transformation. From being the home of the famous Anthony’s Pier 4, Jimmy’s Harborside and the Barking Crab in the 1980s, to the 1990s when the area was cut off by the Big Dig project and became a sea of car parks and rotten piers, until to today, with its restaurants, hotels, residences and more.
The project marks the first time that St. Regis has attached itself to a residential-only property.
“The luxury market is moving towards highly curated services and experiential living, so it’s no surprise that discerning buyers are drawn to this well-established brand known for its incredible attention to detail,” said Cathy Angelini, Sales Director for The St. Regis Residences, Boston. “Our buyers are looking for beautiful design, unparalleled amenities, stunning water views, and access to the booming Seaport neighborhood, and The St. Regis Residences, Boston is the only opportunity to have it all in one. location, while calling for a gorgeous waterfront property.”
When complete, the 22-story building will feature 62 floor plans and 114 units with prices ranging from $2 million for a one-bedroom unit to $15 million for a four-bedroom penthouse. Most units have balconies or Juliet balconies with stunning views of Boston Harbor. The first two floors of the building will include a restaurant.
The property will also offer butler access, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, guest suites, exercise room, spa and private entrance to the restaurant.
The project is expected to be completed in November.
