    Head South — Boston’s South End


    The Troy in South End.
    The Troy in South End.


    No, not to the Caribbean, despite January weather, but to the South End. You may have noticed the lightning speed at which the South End and Dorchester area are morphing. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the changes to the city, which luxury units have what names, and where.

    So why not google a map of Boston, and zoom in to the South End. We will make our way around the neighborhood so you are fully informed and confident as to where you want to rent.

    Head down Harrison Avenue:

    Ink Block Apartments, consisting of 315 units, still have available apartments. Now is the time to make your move. Three buildings, each with a unique architectural style, breathe sophistication, and convenient retail and community events are easily accessible. As their website asks, “Which Ink Pad Fits You?” These Ink Pads are leasing up quickly, so call now to find the answer. (Located at 300 Harrison Avenue)

    Ink Block’s neighbor at 345 Harrison sits atop the old Graybar Electric Site. Over 500 units and plenty of retail space will be available soon. On the other side of Ink Block (443 Harrison Avenue) you will find Building C; 30 apartments and retail space are available for lease.

    Continuing down Harrison are the Jordan Lofts. The 18 condominiums are for sale in this former commercial building. Further down are former parking lot and church, now converted into a 160 apartment unit and 63 condo unit with parking, respectively. (600 & 771 Harrison Avenue)

    Turn the corner and walk back to 136 Shawmut Ave to find The Lucas. Closings have already begun; the 33 condos are in high demand.

    Travel across to Traveler Street to Sepia Boston, (32 Shawmut Avenue), which at this time has limited units available. Does this address sound familiar? Sepia is built on the former Boston Herald headquarters, and now part of the expansive Ink Block community. The Troy, 55 Shawmut, promotes clean living, and responsible energy and water consumption.

    Not ready to rent now? Plan ahead and dot this on your Boston map:

    Dot Block is a sprawling development comprised of more than 10 buildings at almost 400,000 feet. Located at Dorchester Avenue and Hanover Street, Dot Block will have available 362 units, including an area for parking and retail. Is a grocery market in the works? We will have to wait and see. Construction is planned to start in mid-May of this year.

    Hopefully this quick tour helps guide you through the South End and Dorchester’s new and exciting identity in Boston living. Allow me to help guide you to the right apartment or condo meant for you.
