Home Sweet Home: Living in Downtown Crossing

Over six thousand people live in Downtown Crossing – do you know where?

On Saturday, May 10th from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, the Downtown Crossing neighborhood invites the public in to discover the unique spaces, breathtaking views and convenience of living in Downtown Crossing. This self-guided walking tour visits 15 homes, from ultra-modern to historic and from loft to penthouse. Find out where over 6000 people live in Downtown Crossing, and discover their favorite shops and restaurants in the neighborhood.

The tour will stop at occupied rental and sale units at the Devonshire, Ritz, Tremont on the Common, as well as a model unit of the under construction in the 45 Province development, a penthouse at Lafayette Lofts, and lesser known spaces on the “ladder streets” including Avery, Temple Place, and Winter Streets.

The tour can be accomplished in less than two hours, but visitors should consider making a day of it and exploring Downtown Crossing’s other attractions including historic buildings, restaurants and retailers. Tickets are available in advance for $20 and on the day of the tour for $25 at 520 Washington Street (near the intersection of Washington and West Streets).

Tickets for Home Sweet Home are $20 in advance and $25 at the event on May 10th. To purchase tickets in advance click on the “Buy Now” button at the top of this page.
