197 Union Square
A lot of exciting things are happening in Somerville's Union Square neighborhood. For those looking for luxury condos, the impending opening of 197 Union Square, an upscale condo development in the heart of the neighborhood, is sure to be of interest. Here at Boston City Properties, we've been keeping a close eye on the progress of this construction project and are available to assist you in purchasing the luxury condo of your dreams. Slated to become available in the fall of 2015, the units in this development are expected to be exceptionally spacious and surprisingly affordable.
197 Union Square is a mid-rise condo development. The building features a chic, contemporary design that befits the trendy, increasingly popular vibe of the neighborhood. Made up of 30 one- and two-bedroom luxury condos, the development will also be loaded with compelling amenities. With a Green Line station slated to open sometime in 2017, most would agree that the location of the development alone makes it a great choice for anyone who wants to live in this charming city, which is just a short distance from downtown Boston and everything it has to offer.
The developer of 197 Union Square hasn't released detailed information about the types of fixtures, finishes and other features you can expect in the condos themselves. However, as the community has been designed and developed by Cathartes, there's little doubt that each unit will be of impeccable quality. We can safely speculate that these condos will feature open concept floor plans, as they tend to be the most popular option out there these days. They'll undoubtedly have gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and the developer surely has incorporated many eco-friendly features into these units and the building itself.
A lot more has been revealed about the types of amenities that will be offered at 197 Union Square. The development's Facebook page has released quite a few details. Perhaps the most notable one is the inclusion of a so-called "solar lounge," which looks like a swanky resident lounge or clubroom. It will include a large fireplace, which is sure to become a popular congregating spot for residents on cold winter days and evenings. The solar lounge will also offer direct access to a rooftop terrace, a feature that's becoming practically ubiquitous among upscale condo and apartment developments around Boston.
Of course, 197 Union Square doesn't stop with a solar lounge and rooftop terrace, although those features alone are likely enough to attract many buyers. The community will also offer surface parking spaces to car-driving residents. Not surprisingly, convenient, secure bike storage will be available for residents of the community. If you're into cycling, this will be a nice perk. Finally, the building will include a state-of-the-art fitness center that will undoubtedly be equipped with a nice array of cardio and strength-training equipment. It should also be noted that the building is in very close proximity to numerous walking, running and cycling paths and trails.
Although few specifics are known about the design of the condos at 197 Union Square, the developer has stated on social media that they will begin in the low $400s. If that turns out to be true, these condos will be among the most affordable in the area. With the way Union Square and Somerville are being revitalized, however, those prices are unlikely to stay so low. If you'd like to secure a luxury condo in this exciting new development, Boston City Properties can help.
