One of the countless benefits of the redevelopment of the West Side of South Boston is the conversion of unique warehouse spaces into boutique residential buildings. The Spice Lofts (141 West Second Street), home to the Dirigo Spice Corporation for eighty years, is a great example.
The Neighborhood: The Spice Lofts located on West Second Street bordering the Seaport, Fort Point, and Southie providing easy access to three of Boston’s most exciting developing neighborhoods. We’re lucky enough to have our office just down the street and are loving all the new restaurants, studios, and bars opening up just steps from the waterfront. From the Legal Seafoods flagship restaurant to Strega Waterfront and the classic staple The Barking Crab, you won’t be at a loss for a delicious meal with a spectacular view. If it’s shopping you’re looking for, don’t miss Habit boutique and KuDeTa both in Southie. For an easy commute you’ll love the five minute walk to the red line Broadway T station as well as easy access to the Mass Pike and 93. If you aren’t already familiar with the area, I highly recommend spending a day over here–you won’t be disappointed!
The Lofts: The Spice Lofts are made up of seventeen two bedroom, two bathroom homes ranging from 1200 to over 2000 square feet. Thanks to the 11′ ceilings and oversized windows, all of the homes are flooded with natural light. In addition, some units include outdoor space and dual exposures. The developer smartly preserved many classic architectural details such as the dramatic concrete columns making these truly homes with character.
The Finishes: At this time, six lofts are still available for sale. Buyers who get in now still have the opportunity to personalize their spaces by choosing their own finishes. The developer is offering top of the line products such as Frigidaire stainless steel appliances, Ultracraft Destiny cabinets, and granite countertops with undermount sinks. The bathrooms feature custom tile and the choice of Kohler, Elgin, or American Standard faucets. All homes impress with Andersen hardwood flooring throughout.
The Necessities: Equally important as the bells and whistles of gorgeous finishes, are the energy efficient systems in the building. Residents will enjoy the central air conditioning, 200 amps of electric service, tankless hot water heaters, and gas cooking. Each unit includes one deeded garage space making parking and beating the winter weather a breeze. The building is pet friendly.
