Want to Live in the Harbor Towers? Four Condos There Hit the Market This Month

Two words: waterfront views.

While it isn’t exactly Boston’s newest luxury condo complex, the Harbor Towers are still highly desirable for one main reason: They’re some of the only high-rise buildings along the waterfront. Translation? Uninterrupted harbor and skyline views, and all the people-watching you could ask for.

Built in 1971, the 40-story concrete towers were originally slated to serve as affordable housing. They’re the work of legendary architect Henry Cobb—who also designed the Hancock Tower (now known as 200 Clarendon) and the soon-to-be-finished One Dalton—and his partner, I.M. Pei. The Brutalist twosome, which made an appearance on our 100 Best Buildings list, is sandwiched between the Aquarium and the boats lining Rowe’s Wharf. It was converted into condos in the 1980s, and is now made up of 624 residential units.

Some 48 years old and still going strong, the Harbor Towers have had four condos go on the market just this month. Below, take a peek inside the units for sale.
