Related Beal, a fully integrated real estate firm focused on development opportunities in Boston and its surrounding areas, has officially launched sales of the luxury residences at Lovejoy Wharf. The firm collaborated with world-renowned design firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects to create a sophisticated 15-story property offering 157 condominium residences, exclusive amenities and signature Related services. Lovejoy Wharf is centrally located on the waterfront at the nexus of the Charles River and Boston Harbor, just steps from Downtown, Beacon Hill, Cambridge, and the North End. Occupancy is slated for Summer 2017. Related Beal previously developed celebrated residential buildings The Clarendon, One Back Bay and The Arlington in Boston, and is the Boston office of Related Companies, well known for its market-leading condominium and rental developments throughout the nation.
“At Lovejoy Wharf, we sought to create a unique offering for Boston’s most discerning buyers. The building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, is as luxurious in its offering as it is considered in its design. We paid meticulous attention to the details and have incorporated the finest finishes and materials throughout the building and the residences, and crafted a suite of state-of the-art amenities that are coupled with our highly acclaimed hospitality-inspired service package. We are thrilled to introduce Lovejoy Wharf to the marketplace,” said Kimberly Sherman Stamler, President of Related Beal.
Robert A.M. Stern Architects designed Lovejoy Wharf to pay homage to Boston's historic architecture and waterfront heritage in a contemporary way. Inspired by the city's tradition of red-brick residential buildings with stacked bay windows, Lovejoy Wharf's red-brick facades feature a regular rhythm of large windows punctuated by glassy bays inflected toward the views; as the building rises, the brick facades give way to a faceted glass curtainwall that gradually breaks free of the masonry. Distinguished penthouse residences offer floor-to-ceiling views; at night, the building's tower will serve as a beacon on the Boston skyline. The property's staffed entrance is trimmed in hand-selected granite and limestone and sheltered by a bronze canopy, welcoming residents and their guests into a distinctive lobby with travertine floors, walnut millwork, and curated art. The building's civic-scaled, three-story-high, limestone-trimmed passage frames a view to the Bunker Hill Monument across the Charles River and leads to the property's wharf-side restaurant collection. Stantec Architecture of Boston is architect-of-record.
"We're very pleased that Related Beal gave us this opportunity to design a building on this very special gateway site facing the harbor and the Zakim Interstate 93 Bridge," said Robert A.M. Stern, founder and senior partner of Robert A.M. Stern Architects. "Together we have created a contemporary building rooted in the city's traditions, one that prioritizes spectacular views not only for the residents, but also for those who come to the Wharf along the Freedom Trail, where the building's public passage dramatically frames a view to the Bunker Hill Monument across the Charles River."
Lovejoy Wharf serves as the waterfront connection to Boston linking Downtown, Beacon Hill, Cambridge and the North End and is just steps away from the City’s premier restaurants and retailers. The property’s convenient location provides residents with a thriving live-work-play experience - minutes away from the TD Garden, award-winning restaurants, exceptional retailers and popular fitness studios. Lovejoy Wharf is located within close proximity of major transit lines including North Station’s Amtrak®, MBTA subway and commuter rails, as well as major interstates I-93 and Route 1. It is also just minutes from Logan International airport by car, the MBTA or water taxi. Additionally, Lovejoy Wharf offers direct access to the Boston Harborwalk and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.
Also designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the residence’s interiors offer a meticulous collection of finishes including contemporary kitchens complete with handset stone-tile backsplashes, custom wood cabinets with glass insets, stainless steel fixtures, under-cabinet lighting and under-mount sinks. All residences offer 100% Energy Star and stainless-steel appliances, including integrated refrigerators and 34-bottle wine coolers by Gaggenau, and five-burner cooktops with built-in vent hoods, touch-panel ovens, convection micro-ovens and dishwashers by Bosch. Bathrooms and powder rooms offer a classic, elegant design palette with marble tile floors and walls, custom vanity and cabinets, and Kaldewei deep-soaking tubs. All residences feature wide-plank oak wood flooring and in-unit Bosch washers and dryers. A number of the residences also include private outdoor terraces.
Lovejoy Wharf offers an unmatched collection of amenities and services. Related’s differentiated Five Star Living package consists of a broad suite of services, including the 24-hour concierge and doorman staff. Residents will have exclusive access to a spacious wharfside health club, fitness studio and resident lounge, all of which embrace the property’s views of the waterfront and the urban skyline. The distinctive library lounge embodies a sense of classic elegance reimagined for a contemporary address – the adjoining billiards room, business center and children’s room complete the offering. On the 12th floor, residents enjoy sun-drenched, sweeping ocean views from the spacious landscaped rooftop terrace. Designed by landscape architect HM White, the landscaped roof terrace provides the ideal space for hosting friends and family, complete with built-in private grills and gas fireplaces. Residents also enjoy an onsite dog spa and ample storage for bicycles.
The 157 residences range in size from studio to three-bedroom units – boasting unencumbered views of Boston Harbor, the Charles River, the Leonard P. Zakim Memorial Bridge, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the urban skylines of Boston and Cambridge – and start at $750,000.
