BOSTON, MA - The Fallon Company unveiled architectural renderings of Twenty Two Liberty, a 14-story luxury residential tower situated at Fan Pier on Boston’s Waterfront. The 118-unit building is the first new construction luxury, water view condominium residence to be built in Boston since 2009. Fan Pier is a joint venture of The Fallon Company, MassMutual and Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, and is one of the country’s largest mixed-use development sites, spanning 21 acres and nine city blocks.
“The extraordinary location is itself the ultimate amenity – combining the excitement of city living with an unparalleled setting, steps away from Boston Harbor. Boston is known for its distinctive communities and we’re proud to add Fan Pier to the city’s roster of urban neighborhood centers.”
Located in the Seaport District, Twenty Two Liberty will offer the very best of luxury living in one of the city’s most dynamic urban neighborhoods, offset by green space and the waterfront. Fan Pier’s architecturally striking residential development will feature a staggered façade, maximizing views for the majority of units, offering 270-degree vistas of Boston’s cityscape on one side, and the harbor on the other. The generously-sized condominiums will come in several configurations, from studio pied-à-terres to 3+ bedroom homes, with high-end details and an array of luxurious amenities designed to surpass even the most refined expectations.
The homes will be impeccably styled with quality materials and finishes throughout, including warm-toned hard wood floors; floor-to-ceiling windows and dramatic high ceilings; high-gloss modern kitchen cabinets; Sub Zero™ and Wolf™ kitchen appliances; marble master bathrooms floors, walls and bases; Kohler™ fixtures; and modern, state-of-the-art guest baths and powder rooms.
Designed by award-winning, Boston-based CBT Architects with interiors by the internationally recognized architecture and design firm, BBGM, out of New York, the LEED Silver-certified Twenty Two Liberty residences will feature 12-foot floor to ceiling paneled glass, along with an abundance of outdoor space via a variety of private terraces and balconies. The non-reflective blue glass maximizes views for residents from the inside out, while distinguishing the building from the exterior, mimicking Fan Pier’s crystalline waterfront setting. Every resident will have front door access to two lush outdoor areas – the one-acre Park at Fan Pier, as well as a public green. The homes will also provide easy access to Fan Pier’s world-class, six-acre marina, which offers a variety of berthing options from sailboats to mega yachts.
Groundbreaking on the residences took place today. In attendance were a host of local dignitaries, on hand to commemorate the start of construction and honor the iron and construction workers involved with the project, including Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Massachusetts State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry, Massachusetts State Representative Nick Collins, and Boston City Councillor Bill Linehan. Preliminary sales for Twenty Two Liberty are beginning now, in Fall 2013, and the project has an anticipated completion date of 2015.
“The residential phase of construction at Fan Pier represents the continued growth of Boston’s housing market, and I’m proud of the bustling commercial, residential and retail progress along the Waterfront,” Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino said. “The Fallon Company’s Twenty Two Liberty will be the first of what we hope will be many residences combining access and proximity to the Waterfront with upscale city living.”
Residents of Twenty Two Liberty will enjoy the best of luxury from their first steps into the intimate lobby, complete with fireplace and welcoming seating areas, to all of the vibrancy of city living available at their fingertips, including 24 hour concierge support, private shuttle service around the city, and private elevator access from the underground garage to each floor.
Twenty Two Liberty will also be situated within steps of Fan Pier’s fine dining and retail establishments – including Empire Asian Restaurant & Lounge, Strega Waterfront, and Sam’s, as well as renowned clothier LouisBoston. Additional upscale dining and retail locations are also planned for the site, and for the ground floor of Twenty Two Liberty. Other conveniences include close proximity to some of Boston’s premier arts and cultural attractions, such as the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Bank of America Pavilion, and the Boston Children’s Museum. Fan Pier also offers easy access to public transportation, including South Station, a water taxi to Boston Logan Airport and the Financial District, Hubway bikes onsite, and easy access to several highway exchanges.
Residents will enjoy access to a private 3,500 square foot clubroom in the heart of the building, with sweeping Harbor views and a spacious terrace. The club will be available to all residents for events and entertaining, and will feature flat screen televisions, a cappuccino bar and private, scalable rooms. A private, 2,000 square foot indoor/outdoor health and fitness center, featuring best-in-class cardiovascular and weight training equipment, offers high-end workout opportunities for residents.
“Twenty Two Liberty will embody our vision of Fan Pier as the ideal place to work, play and live on Boston’s historic Waterfront,” said Joe Fallon, President and CEO of The Fallon Company. “The extraordinary location is itself the ultimate amenity – combining the excitement of city living with an unparalleled setting, steps away from Boston Harbor. Boston is known for its distinctive communities and we’re proud to add Fan Pier to the city’s roster of urban neighborhood centers.”
