197 Eighth Street
The Flagship Wharf's 201-condo building in the center of Charlestown's Navy Yard at 197 Eighth Street is located just across the harbor from downtown Boston. Residents can hop a water shuttle and get downtown in about five minutes -- faster than most commuters who face Boston's notorious traffic challenges. You'll be cruising acres of waterfront parks, scenic vistas and picturesque marinas while stopping to smell the ocean breezes. The Flagship Wharf community's attractions and amenities include valet parking, 24-hour concierge services and roomy one- to four-bedroom homes that range from 770 square feet to 3,000 square feet. You'll feel like royalty with your own water taxi service, underground parking and concierge who directs visitors to welcoming sofas in the ornately decorated lobby.Apartment Features that Define Luxury
Enormous walls of windows, crown moldings and dark granite counters for eat-in breakfast bars are just a few of the architectural flourishes that Flagship Wharf offers. The luxury runs deep -- so deep that it extends to the underground garage that's actually a part of the wharf -- where you're guaranteed a deeded parking space among the 516 spaces. The nine-story building is private but never isolated in the vibrant waterfront community that has easy access to the major highways, airport and downtown area.In-Building Amenities
Common-usage amenities include retail spaces for shops and boutiques, a public terrace, 400 assigned parking spaces and 116 spaces for daily or monthly use. The building uses an energy-efficient water-sourced heat pump system for heating and cooling that each resident controls in his or her home. A concierge greets all visitors, and access is restricted to approved visitors. Six elevators in three central cores in the brick building provide service to the two-floor garage and nine-floor building. The building's creature comforts include a state-of-the-art fitness center, ultramodern kitchen, chef-quality appliances and marble foyers. The Condominium Association enforces appearance and maintenance issues throughout the community, so you can count on living standards remaining high.
High ceilings and oversized windows are prized features for many people, but you'll be blown away by the 30-foot ceilings in the penthouse apartments. Other key features and benefits of these luxurious homes include:
- Lots of closet space
- Some bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs
- Ample storage
- Private balconies and patios
- French doors
- Sub-Zero Refrigerator and Wine Cooler
- Arc of Visibility
The development's spectacular views are unparalleled in Boston and most of the East Coast. At Flagship Wharf, your arc of visibility, a nautical term, includes Boston Harbor, unlimited horizons at sea and downtown Boston and the Tobin and Zakim bridges. Your home might have a view of leafy greenery in the adjacent park or an incredible tableau from your patio or balcony. You can astonish your friends and inspire deep envy when you live in a community where visibility means more than the choked views of urban sprawl. Flagship Wharf shakes up traditional expectations by providing a community where professionals, families and pet-lovers can live, entertain, commute to Boston and travel anywhere effortlessly.
