Located close to the trendy waterfront in far southeastern Chelsea, the Beacon Building on Broadway condos offer a comfortable abode near vibrant Downtown Boston. This residential development includes up to 11 units of variable dimensions. They sit within a single building on a 0.23 acre paved lot.

A developer erected the three story midrise building around 1900. Since that date, the Beacon has undergone extensive renovations. It still retains a commercial-style rubber roof and impressive exterior red brick masonry. This attractive structure displays decorative stone accents, and a prominent roof fa├žade trimmed in dark green. A wide, level sidewalk adjoins it along Broadway Avenue.

The building includes a private alleyway on the southern edge leading to a paved off-street parking lot in the rear. It provides dedicated (and deeded) parking space for some condo owners. Residential buildings stand on either side of The Beacon Building. In the rear, the lot abuts Polonia Playground, a green space bordering Tremont Street. Beacon Street intersects both Broadway Avenue and Tremont Street a short distance north of this location.

Enjoy Life in an Eye-Catching Chelsea Landmark

The distinctive, aesthetically appealing Beacon Building on Broadway reportedly has appeared as a background setting in some television productions. Today, the two upper levels contain condominiums. They supply variable dimensions, with some units under 750 square feet in size and others over 1,600 square feet.

Residents obtain city water and sewer. A fire hydrant stands close to the building's front entrance. In 2017, the HOA fees here reportedly stood in the high $200 range. They cover exterior maintenance and master insurance, as well as water, sewer, refuse removal services and snow removal. Some condos here include individual in-unit laundry hookups. The condo management association provides some access control measures to ensure security.

Condos in this location reach the real estate marketplace from time to time. The limited number may impact availability. Supply and demand factors influence listing prices.
