The West End Apartments are located in the quiet, upscale West End neighborhood of historic Boston. Urban life provides a unique and exciting appeal. However, the luxurious studio, one and two-bedroom apartments located in two high-rise towers provide a private retreat for those times when residents want to get away from urban life. With 40 acres of green space and lots recreational activities available, residents can stay on-site in the community to exercise, socialize, entertain, play, rest, and relax. However, there is shopping, dining, and entertainment within walking distance of the apartments. Located near the Charles River, residents can enjoy the Charlesbank Park, the Esplanade, and Thoreau Path. Also nearby is the Museum of Science with its planetarium and TD Garden, home of the National Hockey League team, the Boston Celtics and the National Basketball Association team, the Boston Bruins. Near major highways, residents are just minutes away from any location in Boston, and Zipcar vehicles are available on-site. Bike share hubs are also nearby. In addition, residents do not have to drive because bus and rail lines are within walking distance. This community is the definition of convenience.

The Basics

This is a controlled-access community, so residents can feel safe and secure 24/7 anywhere on the site. The reserved underground parking lot provides no-hassle parking, and added perks are the electric car charging station and the on-site car wash area. Sewer, trash, and water are included in the rent.



Multiple apartment layouts are available to suit the varied needs of different residents. Studio apartments offer approximately 542 square feet of space. One-bedroom and one-bathroom apartments range from 750 to 1,000 square feet of space. Two-bedroom and two-bathroom apartments range from 1,100 to 1,400 square feet of space. Three-bedroom and two-bathroom townhomes are two stories and have around 2000 square feet of space. So a variety of apartments are available within different size and budget requirements.

The air-conditioned apartments with open floor plans offer large living rooms and open gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and counter eating space at the island. The appliances include a dishwasher and microwave. There are oversized bathrooms, large walk-in closets, linen closets in most apartments, and a washer and dryer in every apartment. The kitchens and bathrooms have tile floors with wood floors in the rest of the apartment. Most windows are floor-to-ceiling with views of Cambridge and the Charles River. Corner apartments actually enjoy views facing two directions. Windows can be opened, and spacious balconies begin on the fourth or fifth floor depending on the location of the apartment in the towers. Furnished rentals are available.

Rental Credit Program

From their first month, residents earn 15- to 20-percent non-cash rent credits. These credits can be used toward a home purchase through participating builders. The management office can provide residents with an Equity® Rewards Certificate that can be redeemed for up to 3-percent off the price of a new home. This is a unique program because renters usually do not accumulate any kind of equity for the rent they pay.

All these features offered by this community makes it a location to seriously consider when looking for a place to rent. Let Boston City Properties help you explore this and other communities as you are searching for your new apartment.
