15 floors and 157 units from: 700 to 1,800-plus square feet. Studios start at $750,000; one bedrooms starting at $1,000,000; two bedrooms starting at $1,500,000; three-bedrooms starting at $2,400,000. Related Beal pitched its development plan for the then-dilapidated Lovejoy Wharf in 2012. They would tear down underused buildings and revitalize the site. Converse opened its new headquarters next door in April 2015, and the condo building, at 131 Beverly St., is set to open for occupancy this summer.
A short walk across Causeway Street brings residents into the heart of the North End where there are more than 100 restaurants, cafes and shops. Lovejoy Wharf is easily accessible to major transportation points in the Downtown Boston area including highways and public transportation. The building is steps from North Station. In addition to the MBTA subway, North Station is one of Boston’s Amtrak terminals and a MBTA commuter train hub. The popular Boston Harborwalk is within easy reach of the property.
One, two and three bedroom condominiums feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Boston Harbor and the Zakim Memorial Bridge. Lovejoy Wharf has a large fitness studio, residential lounge, library, billiards room and rooftop terrace for all residents to enjoy.
From the ground, you might think the soon-to-open condo building next to Converse’s new headquarters on Lovejoy Wharf has been a part of the Boston waterfront since the city’s early days.
It has a brick facade and long rectangular windows, a common look for old industrial buildings.
But when you look up, you find a material Bostonians are seeing more and more of as the city’s construction boom continues: glass.
“The idea behind [Lovejoy Wharf is it] paid homage to Boston’s red brick,” David Chattman, vice president of Related Beal, said while standing in the building’s chic lobby. “
The building also has a 24-hour doorman and concierge service. The units themselves have wide-plank oak flooring, Bosch washers and dryers, modern kitchens, and views ranging from the city skyline, TD Garden, the water, the Zakim Bridge, and more. Keeping with the tribute to old Boston, some of the units have a modern take on bay windows. “It highlights the historical context of the neighborhood,” Chattman said.
One thing the building doesn’t have?
