The Clarendon Back Bay: nearly 60% sold

On Feb. 25, 2011, Related Companies and The Beal Companies announced that their prized Boston development, The Clarendon Back Bay at 400 Stuart St., closed on more than 50% of its unit sales, averaging more than $1,150 per square foot. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, this 33-story Back Bay condominium tower boasts 102 luxury residences exemplifying Related’s Five Star Living® standards. Occupying floors 15-33, the units range from $780,000 to more than $4 million. On floors 31-33 are three 3,500-square-foot, full-floor penthouses with four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, open-plan great rooms, and 360-degree window-wall views.

One unit still for sale is Penthouse 3 on the 33rd floor, offered at $6.85 million. Its 3,545 square feet of living space — including 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a library — wrap around the building in a C shape, giving you four directions of exposure and views of Boston and beyond. The great room, above, spans an entire elevation of the building, letting your guests take in almost the entire city from cocktails to cuisine. The open kitchen is finely appointed with granite counters and backsplash, walnut cabinetry with stainless steel hardware, and state-of-the-art appliances.

The master bedroom lets you wake up to the brightest and best of Boston in hotel luxury. This luxury extends into two walk-in closets and the master bath, lavished in contrasting finishes of Carrara marble and onyx. The second and third bedrooms also have en suite baths.

The library is a relaxing place to read, study or conduct business amid breathtaking Boston backdrops.

The common roofdeck is a wonderful place for outdoor grilling, cocktails, sunbathing or relaxing with a book, surrounded by the city scene and the sunny sky.

The Clarendon is more than a condominium; it’s a community. Its uncommon common amenities include the exclusive Clarendon Clubroom with fireplace, flat-screen TV, wet-bar, full service catering kitchen, and  adjacent landscaped terrace with outdoor grilling. This regal but relaxed ambiance is ideal for hosting private functions — weddings, receptions, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate parties, you name it — catered by The Clarendon’s in-house signature restaurant, POST 390, which offers Clarendonians VIP status and priority reservations, private residence catering services, in-home delivery, private chef and sommelier services, and invitations to special events.

Also available to Clarendon residents is the Assouline Culture Lounge and its adjacent conference room. These luxurious rooms, which can be reserved for special functions, showcase Assouline brand wall-to-wall book arrangements, furniture custom-designed by Founder and Creative Director Prosper Assouline himself, and custom carpeting glorifying our alphabet and cardinal numbers to contribute to the lounge’s intellectually stimulating reading-room atmosphere.

Through Fitness Lifestyle by Equinox at The Clarendon, an Equinox Fitness Concierge is on hand to arrange spa appointments and treatments and personal training sessions just for Clarendon residents. The concierge can also schedule classes exclusively for Clarendonians at the Equinox Fitness Club at 131 Dartmouth St., a block from the condominium.

Furthermore, Clarendon residents receive a complimentary membership to that Equinox Fitness Club. Equinox’s special in-building resident programming at The Clarendon includes:

  • yoga and pilates classes;
  • stretching classes;
  • wellness classes;
  • supervised and instructional outdoor running programs.

White oak paneling, marble flooring and custom-designed furniture by Robert A.M. Stern distinguish the lobby, which is complemented with American artist Sol LeWitt‘s 1991 series, Forms Derived from a Cube (Colors Superimposed). A 24-hour front-desk concierge and doorman, in-house valet parking, and a children’s playroom are also at your service at The Clarendon, as is the city itself. Within walking distance are the Boston Public Library, shopping and dining on Newbury Street and at The Prudential, and Green Line and bus service to Symphony Hall, the Museum of Fine Arts and much more.

Registered with the US Green Building Council with anticipated LEED Silver Certification, The Clarendon is also tops in energy efficiency, indoor environment quality, water conservation, and use of sustainable construction materials.

The Clarendon also includes One Back Bay, 12 floors of luxury rental apartments on floors 3-14 with a private entrance, currently 100% owner-occupied.
