The Herald reviews the new 210 South Street condo development, down near South Station, in the Leather District.
Sixteen condos are still available at 210 South St., a 1919 building converted into 54 one- and two-bedroom units last year.
Once hosting companies involved in leather-products design and assembly, 210 South St. retains its ornamental friezes, pilasters and arched pediments. But developers enhanced these by adding contemporary marble facing to the structureâ€™s original columns.
A completely redone front lobby features salmon-colored marble floors, blond wood paneling and 7 a.m.-7 p.m. concierge service.
Two elevators redone in stainless steel whisk you up to the condos.
Every floor has an enclosed landing with a black-slate floor and wainscoted, painted walls. Carpeted hallways feature the buildingâ€™s original mushroom columns, lit by overhead stainless-steel fixtures.
It looks like the developer is willing to deal. The unit profiled in the story had its price dropped by $100,000, and the developer is throwing in a year of free parking or condo fees as well.
