The Ultimate Convenience – 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 have certainly changed. This project was 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 literally in your backyard (a nice walk thru the park) and only two stops to the Financial District. A commute does not get any better than that. The Maverick Square Blue Line is also close by, within a ten-minute walk. 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 hassles. There are two water taxi companies that provide quick and easy trips to Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, TD Garden, the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston Harbor Hotel, the World Trade Center and many more locations.

There are several Squares in East Boston and all of them offer a number of retail shops, making it a very easy walking neighborhood. Whether you like the neighborhood market or full-scale shopping at Liberty Plaza, there truly are conveniences at every turn.

Future Development:

Until recently the real estate in East Boston lagged compared to other Boston neighborhoods. Not much was built, and urban dwellers did not demand or consider East Boston as an option. However, some wonderful development has occurred, and an extraordinary amount of development is planned over the next several years, especially at the Waterfront. This will absolutely change how we view East Boston as it becomes one of the neighborhoods that will see great potential and demand. Buying at Porter 156 before these luxury condos are built along the Waterfront and in other developing East Boston locations, will put you in the ultimate position to take advantage of what Eastie will become.

With this rapidly growing neighborhood there is so much to follow so we invite you to keep track of all the exciting neighborhood development through the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA). Here you will find what is in the planning process, what has broken ground and what is ready to buy.

Here are some of the upcoming projects we are excited about:

  • The Mark at DeNormandie Wharf – 99 Sumner Street – 107 luxury condos with harbor and city views, 24 hour concierge, outdoor terrace with grills and fire pits, fitness center, movie room and garage parking. Coming in 2020
  • Slip 65 – Sold out in just 8 weeks – new construction luxury condos to be completed in 2019
  • Clippership Apartments – Coming Spring/Summer 2019 – Brand new luxury apartments consisting of studio, one bedroom, two bedrooms and three-bedroom layouts with amazing common area space, both inside and out!
  • Slip 45 – Phase 2 of the popular Slip 65 – Coming Soon!

The list will change often so be sure to check back periodically for updates. And to fully appreciate how this development impacts our beloved Porter 156, call for a tour and we’re happy to introduce you to all of these exciting additions to the East Boston neighborhood! A Great Place to Invest….An Even Better Place to Live!
