Friday, Jess & I went over and toured FP3 and their industrial-lux lofts here in the Seaport District.
Ok…so I know you are wondering…because we were too – So what does FP3 stand for
F – Fort Point Channel, the neighborhood in which FP3 Lofts sits smack dab in the middle of!
P – Fort Point Channel
3 – The number 3 stands for 3 buildings, because the FP3 loft project is actually made up of 2 existing buildings and one infill piece that is new construction AND…3 additional new floors to the existing structure.
FP3 Lofts is a 92 unit conversion & new construction condominium / loft development here in the Fort Point Channel / Seaport district. Fp3 Lofts is made up of Studios, 1 Beds, 1+ Beds, 2 Beds and some 3 Bed penthouse lofts. The existing part of the building(s) goes up 5 floors and then there is 3 additional floors of new construction, glass curtain wall penthouse style lofts!
Pre-Sales have gobbled up about 40% of the units, so if your interested in FP3, I would get yout butt over there as almost half of the units are gone. (and most of the studios and 1 beds are too!)
The ground floor to be occupied by Boston All-Star chef and restaurant entrepreneur – Barbara Lynch. Barbara’s most noticeable restaurants include – No. 9 Park, The Butcher Shop and B&G Oyster. Current plans for FP3 is to include 3 Barbara Lynch restaurants covering the entire grownd floor of FP3. They are planning on moving No.9 Park over here and also starting up 2 new concepts. One restaurant to be called “Counter,” which will be more like comfort food, casual, after work and weekend pit stop and the second concept will be called Maraschino (I think) and will be a more hipper late night lounge type establishment. You can see we like food & we like Barbara…ok back to FP3 and the luxury lofts!
So the new floors (floors 6, 7 and 8 ) will have some pretty dramatic views of the skyline and the waterfront. All of these units will have large terraces or roof decks. There are 4 penthouse units that are built out as duplexes and range all the way up to 2,300 sq/ft.
The appliance packages is decent – actually ideal for this project including Fisher Payke & GE appliances. The cabinets are gorgeously done by our favorite – Arclinea.
C of O (Certificate of Occupancy – when you guys can actually move in) is estimated in June / July this summer! The staff over at FP3 are hoping to have 2 real models done very soon (hopefully in May!). These models should be unbelievable. 1 is being done by Hacin+Associates and the other by JFS Designs.
Our favorite (off-plans) pick over at FP3 is unit #603.
This is a 1 Bed +, 969 sq/ft and is priced at $775k (just a hair under $800 per sq/ft). This unit is on the 6th floor which means its brand new construction with great glass & light! Condo fee on this unit is $621 (low low low).
As many of you know we love low condo fee’s! Like some other loft projects in and around town like 360 Newbury & 285 Columbus, the developer worked very hard to keep these condo fees’ very low.
