The 1850 (formerly SoHa Lofts) has been re-branded and is just about to hit the market. The 1850, which was once an old Piano Factory (you will see this character in the hallways when you visit) is now going to be home to 60 ultra hip and very affordable lofts in Boston’s South End. We got a tour of the The 1850 last week and an inside view on what these brick and beam lofts are going to look like. Below we posted a dozen or so photos of The 1850.
Units: 60 (53 market, 7 affordable)
Stories: 5 (first floor retail, 2-5 residential condos)
Unit Makeup: 80 90% of units are under 900 sq/ft, with the majority between 700 sq/ft & 800 sq/ft. The smallest unit is 681 sq/ft and the largest unit is 1564 sq/ft.
Bonus: There is plenty of parking if you want a spot. No one has ever said this in the South End before! ($38k per spot approx.)
$326k will get you a 720 sq/ft, 2nd Floor looking towards South Boston
$340k will get you to the 3rd floor with similar views
$350k will get you a similar unit with city views looking back to the Back Bay and the South End.
Appliance packages are decent. Pretty much Frigidaire all the way around and a Fisher Paykel refrigerator. Bathrooms include Grohe faucets, Duravit sink and tile walls & floors.
Other Features: Exposed beams, high ceilings, wired for technology, central air, washer dryer hookups, etc. … and low condo fee’s also a plus for The 1850.
The entire building is a true loft brick and beam raw space allowing every unit owner to be as creative as they want with their space. The 2nd floor is an exception however, they have dry walled many of the spaces here creating a little bit different feel and a more condo/loft feel than a true raw loft space like the rest of the building.
All units at The 1850 are being delivered as wide open spaces. So many of the units could be large one bedrooms or we can envision some of the larger spaces being great 2 bedroom loft spaces.
Our unit favorite: #309, 681 sq/ft and priced at $369k (Condo Fee $292/month). this unit has structural brick walls which really separates the loft space into a true one bedroom very cool awesome ceiling height.
Well, if The 1850 looks like something you may be interested in let us know right away as we expect the primo units to go quickly.
