Ever wonder what it would be like to live in the Fenway’s tallest tower? Pierce Boston, which hosted its grand opening on March 1, boasts a swanky model unit where you can envision yourself taking up residence.
But if you can’t make to Pierce’s 22nd floor anytime soon, don’t sweat it, because we checked it out for you. Pull up a seat to the dinner table and take a 360-degree look inside the three-bedroom model condo below. (If you’re on your phone, expand the image to full screen for a virtual reality-style view.)
Here’s what you’re seeing: This is an open-concept living space within a more than 2,000-square-foot home. The condo’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Fenway neighborhood, letting sunlight in from all angles. In the kitchen, there are quartz waterfall countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, plus European-style cabinetry, and just beyond it, a hallway leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The unit, staged by CBT, also features wide-plank oak floors, a stackable washer and dryer, and several oversized closets. Pierce provides a slew of amenities for its residents (who can choose to live in either apartments or condos), including a rooftop pool, “sky cabanas,” a yoga studio, several common lounges, and more. In the near future, the Pierce’s ground level will offer retail, a restaurant, and a wine bar by Haley.Henry.
Who’s taking advantage of all these luxuries, exactly? “We are seeing interest from suburban buyers looking for smaller but still luxurious homes with access to maintenance-free outdoor space and full concierge services, in addition to buyers choosing to move from other neighborhoods in the city,” says Peter Sougarides, a principal at Samuels & Associates, the developer of the building.
There are 109 condos and 240 apartments in the building.
The 340-foot tower soars 30 stories.
One- to three-bedroom condos range from 612 to 2,684 square feet in size.
Studios to three-bedroom apartments range from 437 to 1,472 square feet in size.
The pictured three-bedroom model unit would fetch $2.7 million.
Two-bedroom condos command between $1.8 and $2.3 million.
The building is topped with 12 sky cabanas.
The 150- to 250-square foot cabanas start at $250,000 apiece.
70 percent of Pierce’s condos sold by the end of 2017.
About 22 percent, or 54 apartments, were leased by the end of 2017.
