The building is brand-new construction, 48 units on six stories, with parking underneath, conveniently located steps from the Broadway Red Line T-stop (took it today, in fact) and within walking distance to the South End … and the ocean (Atlantic).
Once an industrial district surrounding the Broadway Red Line T station, the Lower End is quickly becoming a residential enclave. In addition to Allele (which rhymes with “real”), the neighborhood already hosts the Court Square Press/Macallen buildings, The Lofts at 36 A Street and other high-end condo developments.
Currently nearing completion on the former site of Albany Radiator, Allele has 37 condos still available. Prices range from $429,000 for a one-bedroom to $999,000 for a two-bedroom fifth-floor unit wrapped with glass on three sides.
Oh, and according to the Herald story, the developer is offering a free parking space to the next five buyers (?!).
Construction should be completed approximately two months from now.
There is an open house, today, Sunday, April 13, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
Mary Kelleher at Gibson Sotheby’s has the listings, or contact me for more information.
