If you’re looking for Loft space close to downtown Boston, consider the DNA Lofts project in Dorchester. The project’s name suggests that buyer’s put their name on the units in terms of their design ideas.
The project is comprised of three sections of building. The old, “original” section of the development is a three-story brick building constructed in 1929 as a printing press for the Meisel Press Manufacturing Company. The new, recently constructed sections are two separate four-story buildings that attach to the original Meisel building. They share a common roofline, which in turn allows for the continuous blending of old and new construction.
Available units range in price from $245,000 to $425,000 and in size from 900 to 1,650 square feet. Association fees start at $245 and up.
The original building contains 36 units that feature polished concrete flooring, wood-beamed ceilings and columns and stainless kitchen space. The newer sections of the project have bamboo flooring, flat ceilings and have more of a condo-style feel to them. There have been three phases to the project with the last phase still in development giving buyers a blank slate to design whatever they would like. Again, going back to the name, DNA Lofts, this section gives the buyer the ability to create their own personal design customization or their own “DNA”…
In all there are 30 different floor plans with 80% of all units having some out-door space. In addition there is a common roof deck accessible by all owners with views of Boston’s downtown skyline. All units come with on-site parking, 17 of which are indoor spots with direct elevator access. Each unit offers a washer/dryer hookup for easy convenience.
In terms of the neighborhood, the project sits in direct proximity to Savin Hill, the South End and South Boston. A cab ride to downtown Boston is under ten minutes. It’s a quick walk to the red line train station at JFK, which is also adjacent to a Shaw’s Supermarket. Restaurants in the neighborhood include Boston 224, The Banshee and Tom English’s. You’re about five minutes from the South Bay Shopping Plaza that includes a Home Depot location, Old Navy, Best Buy and others.
