Chelsea's One North of Boston Opens More Apartments Amid Steady Leasing

New, 6 comments

Unabashed Plan B to Boston lures tenants with doggie daycare, more

The 222-unit second phase of Chelsea's One North of Boston is more than 35 percent pre-leased and new tenants started moving into the building late last month.

Recall that the complex as a whole has been called the most expensive apartment development in Chelsea. Developer Gate Residential, the same folks behind Quincy's West of Chestnut, among others, carefully crafted a Plan B for tenants perhaps priced out of the Thunderdome that is the Boston rental market now.

One North of Boston's 1-, 2-, and 3-BR units include flourishes such as in-house W/D, central air and heat, and wide-plank flooring (and some boast views of downtown Boston). What's more, in keeping with the general regional theme of serious amenities for new apartment developments, One North has two pools; spin and yoga studios; an indoor basketball court; fire pits and grilling stations; and quite possibly the first on-site doggie daycare of any residential community in Greater Boston.

As for the first phase, a 230-unit collection that opened in 2014, that is mostly leased now. Rents on remaining units in either phase run from $1,735 and up for studios; at least $1,903 for 1-BRs; $2,390 and up for 2-BRs; and at least $3,175 for 3-BRs.
