Clarendon unit combines classic class with contemporary cool

As the latest addition to the Back Bay skyline and cityscape, The Clarendon at 400 Stuart St. is redefining urban living for the 21st century with its chic combo of classic elegance and contemporary ambiance, as its glass-and-steel-accented brick façade and its delicately detailed but sweepingly spacious lobby boldly express.

Designed by master firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects LLP and developed by Related Companies and The Beal Companies, this 33-story tower contains 107 luxury condominium units starting on its 15th floor, which means stunning city views for all units. Among these is the 2-bedroom, 2-bath Unit 17A, offered at $1.3 million.

Unit 17A‘s 1,321 square feet of living space include an immense living-dining room with oversized windows for lavish entertainment against a Boston skyline backdrop; a gourmet kitchen with marble-like granite countertops, fine wood custom cabinetry with stainless steel designer hardware, and the latest and greatest in stainless steel appliances; and a luxurious master suite with marble bath.

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, and landscaped terrace. 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.

Also available to Clarendon residents is the Assouline Culture Lounge and its adjacent conference room, which showcase Assouline brand wall-to-wall book arrangements, furniture custom-designed by Founder and Creative Director Prosper Assouline himself, diverse art and fashion displays, 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 at 131 Dartmouth Street, a block from the condominium.

A 24-hour front-desk concierge and doorman, in-house valet parking (one deeded space for Unit 17A), 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.

Unit prices at The Clarendon range from $600,000 to $5,500,000. For more information or to schedule a private showing, contact CondoDomain Agent Joseph Barka at 617-784-8760 or City Vice President Jessica Quirk at or 617-314-7704.
