Boston's Biggest Apartment-Building Openings of 2015, Mapped

View as Map

Everyone knows that Boston is in the midst of an epic construction boom, with everything from hotels to condos to dorm rooms shooting up from the city's streetscape. No type of development, however, has been as prominent as apartment construction. Massive (by Boston standards, at least) complexes such as the Ink Block in the South End and the Viridian in Fenway have helped alter their areas and drastically expanded Boston's cartoonishly low housing supply. Apartment search site RENTCafé compiled for us the seven biggest apartment openings in Boston last year. The cutoff for inclusion was around 100 units, and construction on the complex had to have been completed in 2015 (sorry, AVA Theater District—according to RENTCafé, you're not finished yet).
