Boston East Lauds Grand Opening with 25% Units Leased

BOSTON–Trinity Financial announced that Boston East, its new luxury apartment community on the East Boston waterfront, is already 25 percent pre-leased as it celebrates its official April opening. Located directly on Boston Harbor and in close proximity to Downtown Boston and the MBTA, Boston East is a boutique, mid-rise residential community that features 200 units, including six artist live-work-sell units and a community art gallery.

“The property has been really well received in the market. When we were voted Best New Building in Boston last December we started getting people wanting to tour the building and kicked off our preleasing efforts. We’ve received tremendous feedback from residents about the gorgeous water and city views, ample open space, unique finishes and outstanding amenities,” said Abby Goldenfarb, Development Vice President at Trinity Financial. “Trinity and the East Boston Community Development Corporation partnered on this project, and it has so much to offer residents and the community,” she lauds.

The interior of Boston East features designs by Cortney and Bob Novogratz, whose unique style has been showcased on HGTV’s Home by Novogratz and Bravo’s 9 By Design, and in collaboration with companies such as CB2. The pair has conceived some of the most unique and amazing living spaces across the country but Boston East is their first large-scale multi-family design.

The Novogratz’s have embraced Boston’s rich history, the region’s seafaring heritage and the community’s location on the Harbor as inspiration for a “marine industrial” theme they incorporated into the interior design at Boston East. Last summer, Cortney Novogratz visited the famous Brimfield Antique Flea Market in Massachusetts to shop for local, one-of-a-kind pieces to be featured at Boston East. Design treasures from that endeavor include vintage lobster traps that create a coffee table in the public art gallery, a full-size antique canoe and a variety of vintage marine industrial pieces that have been woven into the decor.

“Boston East is our first Boston project and we’re thrilled with the final design we’ve created – a beautiful, relaxing and welcoming space we hope residents will enjoy,” said Cortney Novogratz. “East Boston has a rich culture and history that is reflected in the design, and the result is a building unlike any other luxury multi-family community in the city.”

Designed by Boston-based ICON Architecture, Inc., Boston East’s exterior engages a maritime look, with wharf-like building wings extending to the waterfront and surrounding a central arched entry. Making the most of the beautiful Harbor and downtown skyline, light-filled apartments boast tall floor-to-ceiling windows with large decks angled out to catch water views. A richly landscaped courtyard and Harborwalk envelop the site, offering a gracious patio and fire pit overlooking the kayak and paddleboard launch. A spacious, glass enclosed rooftop lounge invites relaxation, while an indoor gym and dog spa encourage activity.

“Recalling the site’s shipbuilding history, we have created amazing, contemporary residences that reimagine waterfront living in Eastie,” said Nancy Ludwig, Principal of ICON Architecture, Inc.
