East Boston is the latest place that everyone
wants to call home. The Porter 156 Building in particular has
changed how the urban dweller feels about this historical,
but overlooked neighborhood in the Boston Real Estate Scene.
Until now, East Boston has always been associated
with the airport and not much else, but times are certainly
changing. This project is the beginning of a whole new place.
Its close proximity to the city is a commuter's dream. If you
drive it only costs residents forty cents to take the tunnels
to connect to all the major highways in a matter of minutes. If
you take public transportation, the brand new Blue Line is
your backyard (a nice walk thru the park) and only two stops
Financial District. A commute does not get any better than
that. If you
travel for work, the proximity to Logan Airport is ultimate.
A four to five
minute walk and you are at the beginning of your destination.
To address any
myths or concerns about East Boston being too close to the
Airport, that is
the beauty of Porter 156. It is so close to the airport that
it is not
impacted by the flight paths, so consequently there is very
little airport noise. It sounds hard to believe, but it's that
peaceful. That's great news and the end of any airport travel
East Boston traditionally has been an Italian
neighborhood, so excellent
pizzerias and Italian restaurants are at every turn. More recently
Boston has seen an immigration of the Hispanic population,
has resulted in some of the most authentic Mexican and Spanish
food in the
city. Yuppies are the latest group to discover East Boston,
and so trendy and
hipper restaurants have already started to emerge. There are
in East Boston and all of them offer a number of retail shops,
making it a
very easy walking neighborhood.
