The Arlington, an iconic Boston building that has been repurposed into 128 luxury apartments, has begun leasing, its developers said.
One-bedroom residences start at $3,200 a month, and two-bedroom residences start at $6,200 a month. (Real estate rule of thumb: If the rent is north of three grand, they’re residences, not apartments.)
But whatever they’re called, these swanky digs will be awash in “curated” amenities, including an indoor basketball court and an on-site pet spa.
Residents will also have access to Liquid Art House, which combines a restaurant, winery, and art gallery under one roof. Located on the ground floor of the Arlington, Liquid Art House is scheduled to open in April.
The Arlington is a joint venture between Related Cos. and the Congress Group. The Arlington was built in 1927, and in a previous existence, it was the former Boston Renaissance Charter Public School.
With the help of Elkus Manfredi Architects, the Arlington “underwent a meticulous repurposing effort to modernize the art deco property while maintaining its historic features,” Related and the Congress Group said.
“Building amenities at the Arlington, curated by interior designer CBT, will also enhance residents’ daily lives,” the developers’ press release said. “These include a state-of-the-art private fitness center, indoor basketball court, private residents’ lounge, game room with billiards and a shuffleboard table, ample resident storage including bike storage and sports equipment storage, as well as access to Zipcar service and Zagster’s bike share program. Resident’s four-legged friends will be catered to with an on-site pet spa.”
