Fort Point's Evolution a Positive for Residential Development
Fort Point has been especially busy over the past few weeks with fit-outs underway for several new businesses coming to Thomson Place including the much anticipated Trader Joe’s. Local residents will also benefit from the addition of a Bed Bath and Beyond and, for those with a larger budget, luxury home decor brand One Kings Lane. Another project, set to kick off this year, Parcel P from WS Development, will also include a major public improvement in the form of new stairs connecting Summer to Congress Streets. With the grocery store box checked The Seaport/Fort Point, already buzzing with development, is sure to only gain in residential popularity.

Caulfield Properties Condo Market Update
As several major condo projects like One Dalton and Pier 4 wrap up construction and others like EchelonSeaport expected to open later this year, let’s take a quick look back at how the condo market has been performing thus far in 2019. For the first quarter of the year, the median price per square foot across the city was up 9.3% YOY to $551. The hottest neighborhoods in Boston, however, are well above that average with Back Bay, the Financial District, Beacon Hill, the Seaport and Downtown all coming in at double or even triple that average. As more of these luxury projects continue to see closings, we expect to see the average sale price and price per square foot continue to climb. Across Boston, inventory was down during Q1 2019 with a total of 1246 listings, nearly a 15% decrease from 2018. While the average number of days on the market across the city did increase by around 26% YOY, the count is still only at 33, as product continues to move at a swift pace.
Other notable projects completed this year include 232OC in South Boston just across from the upcoming Washington Village and The Muse in Fort Point, down to just 4 available units.
While Q2 has not officially closed, we have seen a continued steady flow of activity and expect these strong trends to continue. For more expert market analysis, contact The Caulfield Properties Team, Boston’s Multi-Family experts, or visit their website at https://www.caulfieldproperties.com/.

232OC: Location, Location, Location
Location, location, location, repetitive obviously but of paramount importance nonetheless and South Boston certainly checks all three location boxes. While South Boston has been one of the busiest neighborhoods for development in the city, there are still a few pockets that have yet to be saturated with new projects. The Dorchester Ave. corridor, 144 acres between Andrew Square and Broadway Station is one such location. Several boutique projects including 232 OC have been completed in this area, but the upcoming Washington Village is set to really transform the face of this corner of Southie. Samuels & Associates announced last week that they plan to kick off construction by year’s end, bringing nearly 700 new residences and 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space to this formerly industrial area.
When the city set out guidelines for their South Boston Dorchester Ave. Planning Initiative they envisioned transforming these 144 acres into a prime mixed-use transit-oriented neighborhood within the next 10-15 years. Early projects to the neighborhood, like 232 Old Colony, will benefit from the further redevelopment of the area. Washington Village is a key piece of the puzzle here as it’s retail, restaurant and open public spaces will help create a sense of place for this area. Savvy buyers looking to get into the neighborhood before it is fully realized can snag one of the remaining brand new condos at 232 OC directly across the street from the Washington Village site.
As this section of Southie continues to grow, properties ahead of the curve, like 232 OC will continue to gain value based on this prime location. These modern units feature spacious floor plans and large windows along with luxury finishes including quartzite countertops and hardwood flooring throughout. Along with easy access to the MBTA, 232 OC is just a few blocks from the beach, Moakley Park, and historic Dorchester Heights. For more information on buying into one of Southie’s last up and coming areas visit 232 https://232oc.com/ or contact The Caulfield Properties Team at 617-586-0735.
