The Lydon in Back Bay Nearing Completion
On a quiet corner of Beacon Street in Back Bay, a gut renovation is nearing completion for The Lydon, a 1920’s apartment building being meticulously transformed into luxury condominium residences. BLDUP toured the project with listing agent Rene Rodriguez of Cabot & Company to check out the mix of historic charm and modern finishes these six homes will offer.

The developers have brought in geometric details throughout the building from the lobby up through the moldings, floors, and even into the powder rooms in the units. The top quality custom finishes combined with open, light-filled rooms combine for a luxurious yet comfortable feel. The views of Back Bay and The Charles River are also a lovely treat in this smaller scale development. The top two floors of the building have been combined into one large penthouse suite with exclusive access to the roof, which also offers stunning views along with a private pool. Unfortunately, that unit has already been spoken for however three floors (2nd, 3rd, and 4th) are still available.

Residents of the Lydon will have access to concierge service along with a very unique parking system. The original building did not have any parking so to make way for the 2 spaces now included with each home the development team had to underpin the building and dig out a basement level. To maximize the space an automated puzzle system will be used. Residents will drive their cars into the garage onto a lift that will take the car to the basement. When its time to head out cars are turned around and brought upstairs automatically by the parking system.

Construction on the top three floors of The Lydon is set to be complete by the end of the year with the rest of the building following by January 31st, 2019.
