483 Beacon Street

Almost a year and a half ago, the converted Hotel Cambridge located at 483 Beacon Street suffered from a massive, 9-alarm fire. This hotel building was designed and built by Willard Thomas Sears in 1898. The historic monument in Boston's Back Bay was redone in 1985 and the converted hotel now houses 69 residential units. The renovations and conversion was done before fire sprinklers were required by law, and so when the building did catch fire in April of 2010, it was a bad situation. While it was successfully confined, for the most part, to the seventh floor, the fire caused roughly $3.5 million in damage to the 10-story building.  The building had 174 residents, and luckily no one was severely inured.

Since the fire, the building at 483 Beacon Street is beautifully recovering. 483 Beacon is a premiere building in the Back Bay that is located on the corner of Beacon Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Currently referred to as Beacon Towers, it's post-fire progress can be monitored here.

The Charles Realty is delighted as this building rebuilds, and is looking forward to having listings there. Please contact us at The Charles Realty if you have any interested in Beacon Towers at 483 Beacon Street.
