Developers choose names for their projects, very carefully.
At times, the lengths they go through seem absurd. Atelier 505, in the South End, comes to mind. Does it really matter? A street address is sometimes just as good, don’t you think.
For specific projects, it’s a great idea, I think.
For example, here’s a grand development I know a lot about, which will benefit from branding (and, perhaps, a bit of internet marketing?):
Along the cityâ€™s waterfront in South Boston, the Archon Group and Goldman Properties recently re-lit the historic â€˜Boston Wharf Real Estate Co. Industrial Real Estateâ€™ sign which had been dark for two decades in the hopes of giving the neighborhood where it is renovating 17 buildings a distinctive landmark.
[The company] hopes it will brand the up-and-coming neighborhood as a development hot spot for buyers.
[The developer] concedes that the branding will help differentiate the Boston Wharf project from so many other residential developments now under construction in the city; giving it an identity uniquely its own. In the next 12 months to 18 months, he says, the development partners plan to roll out a comprehensive ad campaign that will â€œreally create the brand and what the brand stands for.â€?
