Take a look at the newest residential building in Back Bay

Spending hours on the phone waiting for someone to come and set up your Wi-Fi or find a new groomer for your dog near you is usually just plain miserable. That’s why many buildings around Boston are trying to offer some of these services in-house, the latest being 212 Stuart Street in Back Bay.

This new development by real estate giant Greystar, scheduled to officially open on October 20, offers the basics that many expect from high-end buildings: 24-hour concierge service, parcel and newspaper delivery, as well as than common areas such as top floor residents. ‘, a dining and entertainment terrace, a library, and a state-of-the-art yoga and fitness studio. But they also try to go above and beyond to make a tenant’s new home actually move-in ready. “Our intention here was to provide effortless living for residents in a place where you can plug in…and be ready to go on day one,” says Ryan Souls, Development Director at Greystar.

Occupants of the 126-unit, 19-story building will be able to access many luxury amenities. They can have their bike repaired, send their pooch to a dog spa and grooming station, and use a fully equipped conference room, all without leaving the building.

Located on the border of Back Bay and Bay Village, part of the appeal of this site was its proximity to both areas, Souls says. Once a parking lot, the space now offers new accommodations in a location that straddles the line between the bustle of Back Bay and the more residential vibe of Bay Village. It also presented a rare chance to bring new development to Back Bay. “It was really a unique site and it was really the intersection of Back Bay and Bay Village,” says Kerr. “That’s what made it a special opportunity. While the site itself was small, we were building a skyscraper and recognized the opportunity to build something special. »

Souls says the building is already open and taking tenants, but they’re still putting the finishing touches on the place. About 23% of the units have been rented so far. 212 Stuart Street starts renting for $4,000 a month for some studios, while one- and two-bedroom units range from $4,300 to $9,100 a month, depending on size (they range from 500 square feet to 2,100 square feet) and layout.
