The Basics

As mentioned earlier, Port 45, which is currently still in the final phases of construction, is an upcoming mixed-use luxury condo building in South Boston. With its location on West 3rd Street, the building is situated within close proximity of the South End and the Seaport District, putting it in one of the most central and desirable areas in the city. The L-shaped building includes five stories, and they house 105 luxury condominiums ranging from one-bedroom units to townhomes with three-plus bedrooms and private entrances.

Upon completion, this development will offer around 144,500 square feet of residential space. In addition, there will be approximately 3,400 square feet of retail space along the ground floor of the building. Approximately 16 of the units in this building will incorporate its two courtyards into their outdoor space, producing a cohesive and elegant ambiance. Most other units will include some sort of private outdoor space, whether in the form of a balcony, a terrace or a patio. A soaring two-story glass lobby will welcome those who enter, providing an upscale first impression.

Units are Selling Fast

As of January 2018, nearly 80 percent of the 105 condos that were originally up for grabs in this building had been pre-sold. Although the development isn’t expected to officially open until May 2018, it appears that every unit will be spoken for by that time. If you have your heart set on owning a condo in this spectacular building, now is the time to act. Take the first step right this instant by signing up to search Boston City Properties’ listings. Alternatively, contact us for a referral to a local agent who can assist you with securing a home in this building.

Compared with the construction of many other luxury residential buildings in the city lately, the Port 45 project has unfolded without any complications. The projected opening date was pushed back a few times, but that is par for the course with these kinds of things. The first step in the process happened in July 2015, when the city officially approved the developers’ plans for the building. The developers acquired the land for the project in April 2016, paying around $17.25 million to procure it.

When construction began on the Port 45 development, developers expected it to be wrapped up by Fall 2017. As often happens with large projects like these, however, the timeline got pushed back a bit due to minor setbacks. All the while, however, the management company has been actively pre-selling units. As a result, this quickly emerged as the fastest selling condo development in Southie. Fewer than 20 percent of units are left, and the best way to see which layouts and options are available is by signing up to search Boston City Properties’ listings. In a flash, you can check current availability for luxury condos in this highly anticipated new development.
