View as Map

As Renters Week 2015 swings along, we bring you an updated version of our ongoing Curbed Boston Rental Heatmap. It is meant to guide you as you plunge forth into the Thunderdome that is renting in this region. The 12-point map includes not only newer developments such as One Greenway in Chinatown and the the Merc at Moody & Main in Waltham (rendered above), but complexes offering tenant sweeteners such as the Batch Yard in Everett and the Riverbend on the Charles in busy, busy Watertown. We've included the websites of each, too, for further details. Good luck out there.
