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.

Orfano Opens at Pierce Boston
Restaurateurs Tiffani Faison and Kelly Walsh open their highly anticipated Orfano tonight. Guided by the whimsy of “sorry Nonna,” Orfano is a subversive Italian-American restaurant that does not bow to traditions – its orphan spirit breaks away from regions and rules, conventions and expectations. The opening marks Tiffani and Kelly’s fourth restaurant and it solidifies that even their greatest fans cannot predict what they are capable of. As their most upscale concept yet, Orfano, as Tiffani so aptly puts it, “has moves.” The moves extend from the bar to the service to the décor, and underlie Tiffani’s unique ability to translate her own sharp humor into a dining experience that bestows guests with much more than just her gastronomic talent. A culinary maverick, Faison’s special sauce is in her ability to respect a cuisine’s roots while also fearlessly taking it apart and putting it back together in a way that only she could. With Orfano, she delivers next level Italian – delicious, elegant, humorous; distinctly different than anything else in Boston. Orfano seats 96 in total: 16 at the bar, 20 in the café and 60 in the dining room. The café and bar are open to guests without reservations. Reservations are suggested for the dining room. Orfano is located at 1391 Boylston Street Boston MA - on the ground floor of Pierce Boston in the Fenway.

Federal Realty Investment Trust Increases Sustainability Efforts with Beekeeping Partnership
Hyperlocal Honey Available To Visitors While The Bee Population Improves
Federal Realty Investment Trust has announced it is joining with The Best Bees Company’s network of client partners committed to making a positive impact on local bee health and advancing global pollinator research. At the outset, three FRT properties – Assembly Row in Somerville, Mass; Linden Square in Wellesley, Mass. and Fresh Meadows in Queens, NY are hosting the colonies of Italian honeybees, which can travel anywhere between 3-5 miles from their beehives to forage. The bees are vegan and subsist on a strict diet of nectar and pollen.
Each property has a hospitality partner that will incorporate the hyper-local honey into menus and special offerings.
-Assembly Row: The two beehives are located in a protected alcove of off the 2nd floor “green” rooftop well at the Row Hotel at Assembly Row
-Linden Square: In Wellesley, the honey will be incorporated into the menus at Door Number 7 and The Cottage
-Fresh Meadows: Partner Blaze Pizza will create a special item with the honey
“The addition of the bees to our properties helps show our connection to the community and our support of our partner The Best Bees Company’s commitment to saving the bee population,” said Matt Ehrie, Vice President of Asset Management for Federal Realty Investment Trust. “We are excited to see how the harvested honey can be incorporated into a variety of products and menus.”
There are a number of environmental benefits to this partnership, including defending against the continuing loss of habitat and improving pollinator health by using our beehives as a data point. By hosting the colonies, and using the honey in local products, FRT is demonstrating the company’s commitment to the environment while offering something new and unique for our shoppers. Otherwise unused rooftop and ancillary spaces are now activated and being put to good use.
