The Leather District is a 9 street neighborhood located between South Station and Chinatown.  This hot little neighborhood is attracting young professionals who work downtown in droves.  The reasons for this?  Well for one thing, you get a lot more for your money in this neighborhood.  With the price per sq. ft. for lofts running around $450, this is about a 25% discount from similar properties in the South End, plus you get the convenience of being within a 5 minute walk of work.

Another attractive feature of this neighborhood is it’s size and community like feel.  With only 600 residents, 200 of whom belong to the Leather District Neighborhood Association, everyone gets to know everyone rather quickly.  This is something which is attracting many new comers to the city.

On top of all these bonuses, many of the actual units in this neighborhood have features such as granite counters, stainless steel appliances, 15 foot ceilings, and large, open floorplans which are great for entertaining or for building out new rooms.

  1. Much agreed that the Leather District remains a good value. We stopped into 210 South Street today, and with prices starting at $500 per square foot for new construction, that’s definitely a discount compared to other Boston neighborhoods (new or resale).
