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.

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.
