New Residential Developments Bring More Housing Options to Boston


Several new residential developments are underway in and around Boston. If you are looking for a new place to live in the area, you might want to keep a closer eye on these new developments.

Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences One Dalton Street

Destined to become the tallest primarily residential building in New England, the 61-story Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences One Dalton Street will measure 742 feet tall at its highest point with residences as high as 699 feet. Once complete, the development will boast 160 ultra-luxury condos on floors 26 through 61 along with 215 Four Seasons hotel rooms. Construction on the project, which has proceeded at a pace of about one and a half floors since late July, is expected to be complete sometime in the last quarter of 2018. Condo sales have already started.

Mass + Main

With construction started in November, Mass + Main will consist of three buildings boasting 308 apartments once it is complete. Located in Cambridge’s Central Square, the development will include one 19-story building reaching up to 195 feet in the sky. As such, it will be one of the tallest buildings in Cambridge. Construction on the project is expected to be complete by mid-2020.

Pierce Boston

With construction expected to end this year, the 30-story Pierce Boston development will boast one 340-foot tower. As such, it will become Fenway’s tallest building as well as one of the tallest buildings in Massachusetts west of Back Bay. Developed by Samuels & Associates and located at 188 Brookline Avenue, the project will feature 109 condos with asking prices that are among the most expensive the neighborhood has ever seen. The project will also include 240 apartments with rental prices in-line with the ultra-luxury market at around $2,900 for a studio.

South Bay

With the ground being broken in August 2017, the 11-acre South Bay development will include five six-story buildings offering 475 apartments and a 130-room hotel. Other features will include 113,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a 12-screen AMC Theatre, a community space for events such as craft shows, farmers markets and festivals along with 1,094 new parking spots. The development is located at 101 Allstate Road in Dorchester.

399 Congress Street

With construction started in July, the 414-unit apartment complex of 399 Congress Street will measure 22-stories high once complete. While the previous developer had planned to put a hotel in the space, the unusual shape of what has been referred to as the “sausage parcel” of land put an end to this plan. Subsequent plans to put apartments on the parcel also fell through until 2013 when the city signed off on a plan for 414 apartments. The parcel and the plans were ultimately sold to Miami-based developer Crescent Heights in 2016 for $36 million. These plans included constructing 60 innovation units and plenty of common space. 63 of the units will be designated as affordable, including 13 of the innovation units. The project also includes plans for 144 parking spaces in a three-level garage along with 12,000 square feet of retail and lobby space.
