357 Commercial Street
Boston is a city with a vibrant history. The city has played an important part in the development of the United States, and much of this context is still visible today. One of the best ways to appreciate the strong history that this city has to offer is to consider a condominium at Lincoln Wharf.
Lincoln Wharf has always been an important part of Boston, first as a dock and shipping yard. Lincoln Wharf welcomed countless immigrants before it was converted into an electric power plant to support the city's growing demand for energy. In the early 1900s, the Lincoln Power Station was built, and it remained active for decades. However, by 1980, another shift was happening at Lincoln Wharf. Developers purchased the building for residential development, transforming the power plant into upscale waterfront condominiums. In fact, the conversion was the first of its kind with no other documented cases of a turning a power plant into residential property.
The conversion was extensive and involved removing the boilers, generators and coal bins. Even the landmark smoke stacks were demolished to support the total transformation of the property. Although some people may have been skeptical, the results readily speak for themselves. Now Lincoln Wharf is a brilliant mix of old and new, retaining a classic brick exterior and the original copper eagle that sits on the rooftop. To provide added luxury for modern residents, the building features a unique interior atrium. Other building features include glass elevators, a fitness facility and a business center. Residents can also rely on 24-hour concierge service. The complex is within walking distance of many amenities, including public transit. However, there is also bike storage available on-site.
Residents can choose from a variety of floor plans that have been arranged to retain as many historical features in the building as possible while also providing the amenities that modern residents would expect from waterfront living. The floor plans start with one bedroom, but there are also options that allow for up to three bedrooms in some cases. Some of the larger floor plans are available as duplexes, allowing for more flexible living arrangements. In all, there are 191 units in the eight-story building. Many of the units have harbor-side balconies with fantastic views of the water and the city.
Lincoln Wharf is a historical building with a bright future. Consider one of these impressive units today.
