Here's yet another Greater Boston apartment complex offering incentives to tenants—in this case, the 11.6-acre, 155-unit Alta at the Estate off Waltham Street, which is dangling during its current pre-leasing phase the prospect of one month free rent if you lease by March 20 and no security deposits for the foreseeable future.
Its 81 1-BRs, 73 2-BRs and one (yes, one) 3-BR are spread over two four-story buildings, and there's one two-story townhouse as well. There's also a clubhouse with a cyber cafe and a fitness center. And, in a nod to our Revolutionary past, design flourishes at the Alta at the Estate include clapboard exteriors, gables and dormer windows.
As for monthly rents: 1-BRs of at least 756 square feet start at a little more than $2,000; 2-BRs of at least 1,090 square feet start at more than $2,400; and that sole 3-BR, whose floorplan is called "The Tara" (Gone with the Wind reference?), will cost you $3,400 for its 1,992 square feet. No word on the townhouse asking. Stay tuned.
