South Boston Is Red Hot - Here Are Our Favorite New Condo Buildings

We've detailed some of Boston's massive residential development projects in previous new construction features, like Echelon Seaport which will contain 733 residences and 125,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, Clippership Wharf in East Boston, and of course the behemoth One Dalton, soon to be the tallest residential tower in New England.  The neighborhoods that house these projects - The Seaport, East Boston and Back Bay (and let's not forget about The South End) - are making a statement with these opulent, mixed-use buildings, underscoring the luxury and conveniences that accompany city living, and they're certainly upping the ante when it comes to luxury condos in Boston.  

Down the street in South Boston you'll find a lot of the same - air thick with the sounds of construction and a climate of growth - but what's impressive about the list of projects in this neighborhood is not the extravagance, it's the volume.  And let's be clear, by South Boston we're referring to Southie, not the South Boston Waterfront otherwise known as The Seaport, which is also seeing massive redevelopment that we outlined in this previous post.  Anyhow, the remarkable number of new construction buildings containing condos in South Boston is indicative of increasing demand for the neighborhood, especially among young professionals and families.  Buyers are attracted to real estate in South Boston because of the neighborhood's strong sense of community, relatively affordable housing (though home values are steadily increasing with demand) and a high concentration of vibrant restaurants, bars and shops.  The list of new condo buildings in South Boston is extensive, so we decided to give a snapshot of twelve of our favorite projects that are very recently completed or under construction and due to be completed within the next year or so.  Let's take a look.

Boston real estate is rich with diversity, so it makes sense that the neighborhoods around the city are seeing developmental components unique to their personalities.  New condos in the Seaport District have a very cosmopolitan feel, with an abundance of commercial development intended for trendy shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.  Many new condos in East Boston taut waterfront living and urban conveniences new to the area, but also seem to have been built with an emphasis on the preservation of a smaller community.  The changes in South Boston real estate are remarkable as well, though not for the scale of any one project (not including the recently announced redevelopment of the former Boston Edison power plant).  The new construction buildings we listed fit in nicely with the existing character of South Boston - small to medium sized mixed-use buildings that accommodate steady growth in a Boston neighborhood with a personality distinctly different from Downtown Boston.  The number and style of South Boston’s development projects are sure to have an impact on demand and real estate in South Boston (and there are many more to come), but they certainly won’t jeopardize the neighborhoods infamous and celebrated charm.
