BOSTON, MA - Oakwood Worldwide, the global leader in corporate housing and serviced apartment solutions, recently expanded its apartment portfolio with the opening of 234 Newbury Street in the heart of Boston's historic Back Bay neighborhood. The newly refurbished building officially launched exclusively under the Oakwood brand in July.
The property adds 11 furnished, one-bedroom apartments to the company's Boston portfolio, which includes more than 90 apartments at 1 India St., as well as over 350 units in more than 30 other locations throughout the Boston area.
"We're pleased to offer furnished accommodations at this distinctive property with its rich history and highly sought-after location," said Leslie O'Brien, Eastern Region vice president and assistant general manager for Oakwood Worldwide. "We pursued the opportunity to work with the building owner, Jamestown, who has extensive experience creating properties that feature an ideal mix of classic and contemporary styles."
234 Newbury Street combines the charm of 19th-century America with 21st-century amenities, including stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer/dryer, central air conditioning, wireless / high-speed Internet access and flat screen televisions in the living room and bedroom. In addition, the property has front door access to the quaint shops on Newbury Street, superior food and dining options, the Boston Public Library and the Mall on Commonwealth Avenue. There is also convenient access to all major buses, subways and highways in neighboring Copley Square.
This property is ideal for business travelers seeking apartment-style accommodations for an extended period. The building adds another option for employees on temporary assignments who want quick access to their offices coupled with the amenities and charm of the Back Bay neighborhood that has long been famous for its centuries-old Victorian-style brownstones.
"Oakwood Worldwide is an ideal partner for our residential property at 234 Newbury Street," said Michael Phillips, chief operating officer of Jamestown. "Their expertise in boutique corporate housing will allow them to effectively attract visiting executives that seek an authentic Boston experience in the dynamic, walkable and distinctly urban Back Bay area."
