More and more people seem to be living outside of the city center of Boston for multiple reasons. Some may work in Boston, but do not want the hustle and bustle outside of their business suits. Others do it to save some money on rent or mortgages. WIth the new construction booming in Boston, developers have jumped on the “T” line and headed north to areas of Charlestown, Medford and Somerville to help meet the demand of renters and buyers.
Charlestown Apartments for Rent
Three new townhomes, created in classic Charlestown style are wrapping up construction in Charlestown. Within walking distance to Sullivan Square, a hub for buses and the MBTA Orange line, these townhomes are sure to impress buyers. The location is close to downtown Charlestown and area shopping. With their stylish colors, these homes feature hardwood floors, yard space, off-street parking and a rooftop deck. It is rare to find new construction so close to the city!
Somerville Apartments for Rent
At the soon to be Assembly Orange Line T stop, Assembly Row is being anticipated by locals and businesses alike. Comparable to Legacy Place in Dedham, this new “neighborhood” is already filling with renters and businesses. Assembly Row is like a mini living area that will include over 2,000 furnished and unfurnished apartments, a 200 room hotel, an AMC movie theater (expected to open Spring 2014), 800,000 square feet of retail space and 1.75 million square feet of office space. Some announced retailers will include LegoLand, Legal Seafood C Bar and Brooks Brothers.
As 2014 approaches and the completion of these projects draws upon us, it will be interesting to see what developers have in mind in other areas outside of Boston.
