Sales Kick-Off for The Quinn in the South End
Related Beal today officially launched sales at The Quinn. Designed by a renowned team of architects and designers that includes Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Meyer Davis, The Quinn is a 14-story luxury condominium property located at 380 Harrison Avenue in the South End that offers 101 studio to four-bedroom luxury residences.
“We are thrilled to introduce The Quinn and offer our unique brand of hospitality-focused living in the South End,” said Kimberly Sherman Stamler, President of Related Beal. “Our future residents will not only enjoy an incredible space filled with thoughtful luxuries and unmatched service, but will also be part of a community that includes amazing art galleries, boutique shopping, and top restaurants around every corner.”
In designing The Quinn, Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Meyer Davis took inspiration from the South End’s blend of historic Victorian row houses and industrial buildings and infused these elements into every detail. Stern and his partner Daniel Lobitz wove together classic neighborhood elements of brick, granite, sandstone, blackened steel and metal work over a modern glass backdrop to create The Quinn’s façade. Inside, Meyer Davis chose materials that echo the atmosphere of the South End to design the building’s refined residences, and incorporated unique features such as wine coolers, fireplaces, custom cabinetry and millwork.
The Quinn offers a wide range of diverse floor plans that include dens, powder rooms, and private terraces, providing flexibility and appeal to a wide breadth of future homebuyers. Residents will enjoy several thoughtfully curated amenity spaces, including an expansive fourth floor with a relaxed lounge and library, collaborative work areas, a gaming room, a sports lounge with billiards and shuffleboard, and a beautiful dining room perfect for hosting dinners and wine tastings.
On the 12th floor, a shared landscaped terrace wraps around three sides of the property, where residents can gather with friends and family in the private dining and barbecue areas, while taking in stunning views of Back Bay and Downtown Boston. And on the rooftop, private cabanas surrounding stone courtyards will provide a space to relax.
For the fitness minded, an impressive 8,000 square-foot best-in-class fitness center will offer an expansive rock-climbing bouldering wall along with squash and basketball courts. Additionally, The Quinn will give residents a spa-like experience through amenities that include a sauna, as well as the South End’s first residential indoor pool, which incorporates a unique water wall feature and custom millwork.
As with all Related Beal properties, hospitality is infused into every aspect of life at The Quinn and will leverage Related Management Company’s acclaimed service platform. In addition to an onsite concierge, residents will also experience Boston’s first ever Dog City: exclusive to Related residents and their pets, Dog City memberships will feature day care, access to an indoor play area at The Quinn, pick up and drop off services, veterinary appointments, daily report cards, expert consultation for all dog care needs, and more.
Located on a key corner of Boston’s historic South End neighborhood, The Quinn gives residents a home within an established and energetic community minutes from the city’s most acclaimed restaurants – including Myers + Chang, Kava, and The Beehive, trendy boutiques, more than 30 art galleries, fitness studios including CorePower Yoga, Barre3, and more.
In close proximity to South Station, The Quinn will provide convenient access to Red, Silver and Orange lines, as well as major highways. The Quinn’s prime location means that residents will be within walking distance of Back Bay and the Financial District, close to the Seaport and South Boston, and surrounded by several bike share options.
The Quinn is under construction and scheduled to open in late fall of 2020. Prices will range from $800,000 - $5 million, with sales led by Related Beal and The Collaborative Companies.

Facade Install Begins for MIT’s Vassar Street Residence Hall
Facade install has kicked off for MIT’s new residence hall located along Vassar Street just outside Central Square in Cambridge. The project will contain 450 beds for undergraduate students along with 16 apartments for graduate resident tutors and faculty members. The 156,000 square foot building will also house shared community space and a dining hall, along with ample bike parking.
The building has been designed to meet LEED Gold standards, and Eversource is providing energy efficiency solutions for the project. Eversource is supporting the construction of this highly efficient student residence hall through incentive payments for beyond-code technologies as well as third-party technical input during the design process. Even though this facility is fed from a central plant, considerable energy savings were achieved through improvements to fenestration selection, the lighting design, HVAC controls, and optimized energy recovery systems. The technical review process uncovered mid-design phase assumptions that would have significantly over-ventilated the residential portions of the facility. Eversource’s feedback led to a simplification of the ventilation systems, a reduction in lifetime energy use, and reduced construction costs. Construction is expected to be completed in time for the Fall 2020 semester.
