Located squarely in Boston’s Theater District is one of the most exciting property developments of the city for 2023, The Parker. All apartments are notable, but it’s the 1,240-sq-ft Penthouse 21B that we’re most thrilled by.
What makes this apartment so extraordinary? Firstly, the views. Boston is a fascinating city, and somewhat unique within the States; one of the oldest cities in the country is so deep in the country’s history, so engrained within the nation’s heritage, that its legacy is irreversibly engrained in the story of America. The architecture of the city is some of the oldest in the country, and yet the skyline is undoubtedly one of a thriving, modern metropolis.
This is something The Parker’s Penthouse 21B capitalizes on, to great success. Gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows showcase Boston at its finest. Expect wondrous vistas of the old Back Bay neighborhood, which dates back to the early 19th century, and direct views of the John Hancock building, the tallest skyscraper in New England.
Naturally, however, there is so much more to this property than just the views, although admittedly, they’re so striking that everything else feels like an added bonus. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom property, designed by Linda Zarifi of Zarifi Design, features oak flooring throughout, embedding the thoroughly modern space with a touch of old-school sensibility.
The kitchen, as is the case for the rest of The Parker’s apartments, boasts Calacatta Quartz countertops, Fior Di Bosco marble backsplashes, Thermador and Bosch appliances, and Mochaccino matte lacquer cabinetry.
The overall aesthetic is subtle, and yet unmistakable, in its grandeur. Big accents of gold and glitz would be considerably gauche for the Athens of America; instead, The Parker reflects the nature of the cultural capital of the East Coast with a brown and cream palette that highlights the breathtaking of the city outside.
Amenities within The Parker for all residents include a café adjacent to the lobby, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar, a private screening room, a fitness center and even a sky lounge roof deck that overlooks Boston Common, the Charles River, Back Bay and the Financial District.
The Public Garden, America’s first botanical garden, and the Boston Common are mere seconds away from this fabulously located condominium, as is The Boston Opera House.
Both Harvard University and Tufts University are easily accessible through the city’s excellent public transport links, and Boston University is a pleasant 35-minute walk through the city center away, rendering the property as ideal for city workers as it is for students.
