The Arlington, a 128-unit conversion of the old charter-school building at 100 Arlington Street in Bay Village, has started leasing. The building, which was converted by Clarendon and One Back Bay developer Related Companies as well as the Congress Group (whose head, Dean Stratouly, is daring to redo that aged Beacon Hill townhouse), comes with all the luxury bells and whistles, including an indoor basketball court, a pet spa, bike storage and a 24-hour concierge.
And! Tenants will have access to Related's RelatedStyle Services. Take it away, Related: "Residents of The Arlington will have access to move-in coordinators to handle every last detail from choosing the best moving service to handling utility and technology set-up and personal assistants, who, with a phone call or email can help with almost any request such as dinner reservations or theater tickets and housekeeping and dry cleaning services."
One-bedrooms at The Arlington start at $3,200 a month and 2-BRs at a whopping $6,200 (above is a kitchen shot from a 1-BR asking $4,215). While the new complex is not amongst those in Boston offering any free rent, it is offering to waive the security deposit if you sign up to pay your rent through automatic bank withdrawals. Good luck out there.
