Two of Boston’s historic buildings in high-end Back Bay have had new, exhilarating life breathed into them. Related Rentals, Manhattan’s unrivaled leader in luxury apartment development, has stamped its signature swank on an 1899 high-rise (now One Back Bay) and an iconic 1927 landmark (now The Arlington). In a unique move, Related partnered with prestigious local developers: The Beal Companies for One Back Bay and Congress Group for The Arlington. As always, Related crafts impeccable living experiences in the most coveted neighborhoods, close to the best of the city — with its trademark stunning views and 24-hour concierge service.
For the 33-story One Back Bay, Related hired world-famous Robert A.M. Stern to create a striking edifice that epitomizes the finest in metropolitan living. Close to Newbury Street and the South End, One Back Bay offers spacious studio and one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments with custom gourmet kitchens and baths (with imported finishes). Residents-only amenities include a Zen-like landscaped sun terrace with BBQ grills, a light-filled Equinox® gym, plush entertainment lounge with kitchen, colorful children’s room, bike storage and garage parking with 24-hour valet.
Steps from the Public Garden is The Arlington, a gorgeous 15-story Classic Revival building with a limestone façade, with 128 apartments and several floor plans. The premier one- and two-bedroom luxury apartment homes offer “custom” everything — gourmet kitchens and bathrooms (with Italian marble), smart closets, handsome wide-plank floors — plus a washer/dryer. Residents-only amenities include an impressive fitness center and indoor basketball court, entertainment lounge with kitchen, game room, pet spa, a technology concierge, bike and equipment storage, and lot parking. Another perk is access to the ground-floor Liquid Art House, a gallery-restaurant.
Set in a vibrant, picturesque landscape of 19th-century architecture, both One Back Bay and The Arlington are close to Copley Square, Boston Common, Boston Public Library, Boston Center for the Arts, Citi Performing Arts Center, Boston Symphony Hall, Fenway Park, University Park, and the finest restaurants and prestige retail.
Always leading the industry by example, both of Related’s luxury apartment buildings in Boston are green and sustainable (with LEED Silver Certification), smoke free and pet friendly, and provide an emphasis on healthy living with their fitness amenities. Residents can also take advantage of on-site bike sharing (Zagster) and rental cars (Zipcar).
