While buildings like Millennium Place are being built and the Seaport District continuing to grow, it seems overwhelming to read about all the projects happening around Boston. We've run several blog posts regarding this boom in construction, a sure sign that Boston is ready to bring in a new economy and allow business to thrive.
Anyone who's been following the building boom knows that there are plenty of condos on their way to Boston, and to many this seems unnecessary. But as a real estate office, we have experienced the housing demand first hand. Even now in September as buying and renting slows down we still see plenty of people looking for a home, and homes are disappearing from the market within a matter of just a couple days.
It's time to offer some new places to live, and if people don't want to put their homes on the market, then developers will just have to supply new homes and condos in the city. These upcoming projects will provide both condos and apartments for those looking for a bit of a change and for those looking to come into Boston. The great new architecture expected will give the city a modern vibe, a great contrast between the older classic buildings and then the modern and sleek homes.
With more homes and more people, comes more business, and the latest project news is an office building near the Zakim Bridge. With a modern and abstract glass waterfall this office building will certainly change the look of Boston as you're heading in or out of the city. Many of the other developments are also expected some office space, so who knows, you might be able to live in the same building your work in!
I just wanted to reiterate the great things coming to Boston in the next few years. It's a sign of an economy that is bouncing back and offers an opportunity to both those that are new to the city and those that have been here for years.
