Is East Boston ready for The Eddy?
The new luxury high rise opened last month and is already one-fifth leased. But towering more than 200 feet over Boston Harbor, with an outdoor pool, rooftop deck, and views that reach from Chelsea to the Seaport, it’s not hard to understand why these apartments are getting leased up so fast.
Its glassy lobby soothes you with a cool soundtrack and features the sort of decor you’d imagine in a very trendy marina. Diversions abound inside the building, too. The Eddy will soon be home to a hush-hush-for-now restaurant that promises al-fresco seating. In addition to a rooftop pool and roof deck, other urban luxuries include a communal chef’s kitchen for your dinner-party needs, and a dog-washing station.
Of course, those killer views don’t come for free. Rent starts in the low $2,000s for studios, which begin at 400 square feet; two-bedrooms, sized at up to 1,200 square feet, run in the low to mid $3,000s. As real estate prices in the neighborhood continue to spike, renting might be a more user-friendly option; especially when you consider the joy of coming home to a waterfront lair after a hard day at the office.
Harbor views, easy access to downtown, and not the worst prices—East Boston is a neighborhood on the rise. And now more developers are making big bets that interest in East Boston’s waterfront will grow.
