Atlantic Wharf Lofts, Downtown Boston meets Fort Point Channel South Boston

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of viewing Atlantic Wharf Lofts. Atlantic Wharf is at the intersection of Congress Street and Atlantic Avenue. So what section of Boston is this? According to the BRA (Boston Redevelopment Authority)it is considered "Downtown". One may argue it is the "Financial District", another may argue it is the "Waterfront" another may say "South Boston". I have always referred to this area as "Fort Point Channel". Bottom line is Fort Point Channel links the Waterfront to South Boston. This area is a gem and always has been...it has just taking us as a city to finally figure it out. South Boston's Waterfront has been on the books forever!! Everything in real estate is about location, location, location and it amazes me that people are just discovering all this area has to offer. Just think about where Atlantic Wharf sits, it is the most exciting area in Boston. Think about it. If you work in the Financial District or Downtown area then you can walk to work. How great is that? Especially, the way gas prices are going! Also, you are in walking distance of great restaurants and museums. Where else in the city of Boston is more walkable than here? Atlantic Wharf has received a score of "91" or walker's paradise from www.walkscore.com. Going back for your degree? No problem, you could walk to Suffolk University if you choose. Going to NYC, literally walk across the street to South Station. At Atlantic Wharf, you have everything at your finger tip. This truly is Boston living at it's best. You can get everywhere from here with very little hassle. You have the best of all worlds around you...the North End is a stones throw away and South Boston Seaport's District is at your doorstep. I really can not say enough about this area and Atlantic Wharf. So, back to the building. It is beautiful. I previewed the model apartment which is considered a 1+ bedroom with 2 full baths. It is light and airy and has nice modern finishes. I really like the 10'6" ceilings and the fact that the windows are operable. Another feature I like is that the window treatments are included. I am also big on energy efficiencies and this has it from dimmable lights to energy star rated appliances. The kitchen has high quality, glossy white cabinetry with full extension, soft-closing drawers. It also offers Kitchen Aid and Liebherr stainless appliances. Did I mention energy star rated?? I can't get enough of  "green" amenities. Speaking of amenities...on site gym...so no more excuses! Underground parking (additional charge) fine dining as well as casual dining will be right on site as well. Pet friendly as well. Please contact me for more information or if you would like to check out all Atlantic Wharf Lofts living has to offer.
