The Modern South End condo project puts more than 50% of units under agreement
Jun 2011 29

The Modern is a two-phase South End condominium development located on Northampton Street between Tremont Street and Columbus Avenue.

Phase I, the first 25 units, came online in 2006. Homeowners have been happy with their purchases. The open floorplans didn’t appeal to everyone but the pricing was good because of its location at the edge of the South End.

Phase II, with 37 units, will be done this summer, with a hoped-for July completion date and August move-in. Many units have separated bedrooms (with doors), ensuring complete privacy. A wise move on the part of the developer, as many homeowners prefer this traditional layout.

The time is right; the market is responding to the style and design of the building. After just two months being on the market, there are 22 units under agreement.

One beds are available between $399,000 and $495,000; two beds between $525,000 and $645,000. Parking spaces in the underground garage begin at $23,000.

One of the “skyhouses” is still available at $769,000, with approx. 840 square feet, one bed, one and ½-half bathrooms, and includes one parking space an an ~1,000 square foot private deck.

From the MLS listing:

The perfect blend of post-loft living & traditional charm, these stunning homes offer a crisp kitchen with custom white cabinetry & contrasting chocolate counters, spa-inspired bath in white marble, floor to ceiling windows, espresso flooring, private deck, low condo fee, common roofdeck with built-in gas grill & breathtaking views …

Please let me know if I can help you with a potential purchase in The Modern. New construction purchases can be quite different from when purchasing in an existing condo building. I’ve helped many buyers (including myself) take the appropriate steps to ensure their purchase ends up making them happy homeowners.
