The Top 5 Luxury Apartment Buildings in South Boston
With a vibrant charm all its own, Southie is home to some of the very best luxury apartments in Boston. Here’s some of our favorites.
From Fort Point to the edge of the Seaport District, South Boston has long been a destination for apartment hunters looking for the best luxury living the Hub has to offer. While the Seaport is a neighborhood in its own right these days, Southie boasts more than its share of breathtaking luxury apartment buildings. As one of the hottest destinations for Boston residents, the luxury apartment buildings in South Boston are second to none. Here — in no particular order — are some of our favorites.
Let’s dive in.
In contrast to the high-rise luxury apartments that comprise its neighbors on the Seaport coastline, the Flats on D present an artistic, whimsical take on the luxury apartment complex. With the same kind of vision and energy that makes the Lawn on D a popular destination, the Flats on D apply that same magic touch to luxury apartment living: resulting in a vibrant, hip, and unique experience in one of Boston’s most coveted locations. The Silver Line Convention Center Station is a brisk five minutes away, and with easy access to Liberty Wharf, the Seaport district, and all of Southie just a few minutes from your front door, you’ll never lack for nightlife, dining, or entertainment options.
Unabashedly pet-friendly, the Flats on D provides bike storage, gated and covered parking, an on-site fitness center,and easy access to retail without having to leave the complex. Plus, the Lawn on D is literally your backyard. And while it’s hard to top that, Flats on D gives it a go with their interior amenities. Units feature stainless steel appliances and stone countertops to enhance your time in the kitchen, as well as their own washer and dryer. But it’s the signature floor to (nine-foot-plus tall) ceiling windows that give these luxury apartments their open, bright character. Not only are they an excellent source of natural light, they offer breathtaking views of Boston Harbor.
Do you work in the city? Love the idea of luxury living that’s close to the action, but still offers a retreat from it? Or maybe you just like having a view of the Boston skyline from your window. Either way, the luxury apartments at 50 West Broadway have you well covered. Spacious walk-in closets, private laundry, track lights, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances,ubiquitous wheelchair access, and free gas heat and hot water are just the tip of the iceberg: 50 West Broadway is packed with thoughtful touches to ensure comfortable living.
Recently, Warden Hall and the rest of 26 West Broadway was brought under the 50 West Broadway banner, adding even more excellent options to the table. The pet-friendly resident policy allows up to 2 cats and dogs, and the gated-access grounds include an outdoor putting green, bocce court, and a picnic area. But with all this, the most attractive element of 50 West Broadway is its location: situated literally across the street from the Broadway Station Red Line T stop, you’ve got the whole of Boston accessible from right outside your front door.
With easy access to the Seaport, Red Line, and Logan International Airport, West Square Apartments make the most of their South Boston address. Just a hop, skip, and jump from upscale shopping like Foodie’s Markets, Fete Collection, Neatly Nested, and Covet, the location is perfect for anyone who likes the idea of a leisurely shopping trip without the hassle of finding a parking spot, or relying on public transit.
But location by itself does not a luxury experience make. Fortunately, West Square is comfortably posh with its amenities. From in-unit washers and dryers to the walk-in closets, or the chef-inspired kitchens with quartz countertops and gas stoves, you’ll find all the details you’d expect in a premium luxury experience. Relax in a soaking tub, or take in the skyline through your floor-to-ceiling windows: all in a crisp, clean, LEED designed and smoke-free environment. One unsung hero of these apartments is the top-shelf gym: it’s so much more than simple weights and treadmills: to say nothing of the yoga and spin studios. With package service, indoor garage parking, bike storage, pet run (and pet spa), as well as onsite Zipcar and concierge service and a huge outdoor courtyard — perfect for outdoor grilling in warmer months — West Square has the details covered.
And that lets you focus on living your best life.
With nine-foot tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and closets so deep you might think you’ve fallen into Narnia, Eleven West is serious about comfortability. The designers took a good look at what makes South Boston such a great neighborhood, and crafted Eleven West to perfectly compliment those strengths. The Red Line Broadway T stop is adjacent to the building, and a 36-car parking garage is hidden away underneath it: so whether you drive, bike, or ride, your daily commute is a cinch. Onsite retail makes this even easier: not only is there a Starbucks in the building, there’s dining options from the grab-and-go sandwiches of Subway, to the Asian fusion tapas experience of Purple Shell, making the question of where to eat that much simpler.
Handicap accessible with elevator access for each floor, there’s also a landscaped roof terrace common area, providing 2,500 feet’s worth of fantastic views for those peerless Boston sunsets. It’s seriously one of the best roof decks in all of Boston. Air conditioning, heat, and hot water are all included, and the granite countertops, bespoke-designed cabinets, and stainless steel appliances do not disappoint. Plus, there’s hardwood floors in the living/dining room and dens — yes, each unit has a den — as well as porcelain tile in the kitchen and foyer, and wall-to-wall carpet in bedrooms. Even when compared to other luxury apartments, 11 West Broadway’s units are massive… even most of their 1-bedrooms top 1,000 square feet!
On a scale of 1 to 10, Eleven West lives up to its namesake.
Relish the idea of living on beachfront property, but dread the prospect of finding a place outside city limits? Still holding out hope that “affordable luxury” isn’t a contradiction? Crave an ocean view from your window?
Welcome to Carson Towers.
Nestled into Carson Beach, the eponymous towers make it all possible. The past few years have seen a slew of serious upgrades to the property — inside and out — bringing it up to date with the very best luxury buildings in Boston. You’ll also find amenities like covered off-street parking, package receiving, hardwood floors, spacious closets, and wheelchair accessibility, as well as a carport, laundry facilities, and an onsite fitness center to round out the experience. Cats are allowed, but no dogs — sorry puppers — but if you’re looking to balance your desire for luxury amenities and the joy of life on the beach? You’ve come to the right place.
