A Growing Luxury Presence

These new condos are just the latest to contribute to the burgeoning East Boston real estate scene. They offer convenient positioning just across the Boston Harbor from the North End, Waterfront and Financial District, targeted to high-end clientele like up and coming professionals who can't afford the high rates of the city's core but who still want quick access to work and play. 320 Maverick certainly isn't alone. The Eddy, Trinity Financial, Clippership Wharf and Portside make up a huge influx of luxury housing in recent months, comprised of 1,000 new units with access to a mile-long stretch of waterfront, says the Boston Globe.

These neighborhoods, along with the Maverick, are luring in college students and young professionals who want more affordable housing close to downtown, resulting in a wave of new investors buying up row houses and converting them into appealing housing options. The hope for city officials and the inner neighborhoods of East Boston is that residents of the newer condo units popping up along the vastly underused waterfront (up until now) explore everything else there is to love about the city, such as Maverick Square and Day Square.

With a three and a half minute ride from East Boston to downtown Boston, as well as luxury condos selling for a fraction of the cost, Eastie is becoming a player in the luxury housing market with no signs of stopping soon. Check out more about 320 Maverick Place in Jeffries Point here.
