***ARTICLE UPDATED*** We’ve updated this article for 2021! Click here to see the best luxury apartment buildings in Boston for the year 2021.

Living in a city as historic as Boston means residents can get a glimpse into the city’s past every day- passing by Paul Revere’s house in the North End to overlooking the Boston Harbor where the Boston Tea Party happened are just a few examples! While this certainly gives Boston a lot of its charm, part of it comes from seeing significant architecture of the past fitting in seamlessly next to new residential and commercial buildings. These new, primarily luxury, buildings have been increasing in popularity over the past few years- rivaled only by the classic Boston Brownstones everyone has come to know and love. Luxury buildings have many, differing perks so you have to consider each of the many features and options carefully.

Only you know you best, and we hope this list can streamline your decision making process! We rented a tremendous amount of luxury apartments in Boston over the last year.
