My Notes

One step in the door and you will love what this loft offers! A terrific open layout that is filled with the most amazing light and incredible style. It has an edgy industrial vibe that we all adore in loft living but has been softened to appeal to the sophisticated buyers of 2013. From the blasted concrete ceiling and beams to the factory features and the 14 foot ceilings, the best of the warehouse features have been restored perfectly. There is a very cool industrial staircase that leads to the raised sleeping loft that keeps with this turn of the century style, but the warm bamboo floors, linear stainless steel kitchen and all the best amenities of in-loft laundry, air-conditioning, parking and spectacular roof deck bring the comforts we expect of today. Best yet, this loft has amazing city views that we normally see in the penthouse units for over $450,000, but you can have them in this loft at such an affordable price! There really isn't anything missing and if you have not discovered East Boston, it is certainly time that you did! All the Back Bay and South End buyers are making their way to East Boston because you get so much more for your money and the conveniences are incredible! A 3-4 minute walk through a lovely park gets you to the Blue Line and in 10 minutes, you are Downtown. 40 cents for a two minute tunnel ride gets you to every major highway instantly. The best of the best restaurants are popping up all over East Boston and there are old favorites tucked away all over the neighborhood making this thriving neighborhood a perfect fit for all the foodies out there! The East Boston Waterfront is quickly emerging and that is just blocks from the beloved Porter 156 - all you need to do is move in and watch this wonderful neighborhood transform right in front of you!

Market guide

Zillow predicts East Boston home values will increase 3.9% next year, compared to a 1.4% increase for Boston as a whole. Among East Boston homes, this home is valued 36.8% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 50.6% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In East Boston, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 74.3% greater than in Boston, and 22% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent East Boston home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Boston.
