The 1850

The 1850Art Shows & Model Homes …

We toured The 1850 yet another time last night with one of our ‘lofty-clients’ and I got a chance to get my hands on a press kit that they are sending out this week AND finally some great photography from their model homes.

Below you will see a bunch of photos of their 2-bedroom loft model (my favorite) and a press release on the new art installation focusing on the “Parti Wall”.

The Art Installation Press Release:

This is How a Garden Grows:
The 1850 Debuts Five Stories of Art and Architecture May 2008

The South End and Art To be expected. Real Estate and Art Only in the South End.

On May 16th, local development firm Cresset (, and 10 local architectural firms will join forces to debut a five-story artistic and architectural installation entitled, Parti Wall, Hanging Green. Located at The 1850 (, an historical brick and beam building Cresset recently transformed into 60 modern loft style condos, the installation will feature numerous green grass panels suspended from a metal cable system. The panels will overlay all five stories of The 1850’s previously bare brick fae at 90 Wareham Street in the South End. Cresset and the Young Architects of Boston look forward to welcoming the 25,000 visitors who will descend on Boston for the annual Architecture Institute of America’s National Architecture Convention in May.

Both Cresset and the design team involved view Parti Wall as a piece of outdoor art that improves the city visually and environmentally. The wall will be both a changing urban artwork and a public demonstration of the possibilities for greening a city like Boston, sates Anthony Piermarini, a Principal with the architecture firm of Studio Luz.

The YAB approached Cresset about using The 1850 for the installation, as the building’s location in the heart of an artistically and transitional South End neighborhood, just minutes from the convention center, makes it an ideal canvas for the project. The installation itself effectively reflects the architectural vernacular that Brian Healy Architects designed for the newly-renovated 1850. The greening of brick walls mirrors the adaptive restoration design of The 1850 from industrial warehouse to modern loft condos. We are excited to bring a modern outdoor gallery to our historic South End neighborhood; a neighborhood that embodies trendy and contemporary, but has not lost its historical character states Cresset VP and Principal Bill Curtis.

The 1850 sales office opened its doors in March 2008 and has since sold 30% of its inventory. During that time the building’s 300+ visitors have responded well to The 1850 keeping the brick-and-beam industrial character while pairing it with a fresh, contemporary style. The condos offer wide-open spaces, ample light, and great city views. Parti Wall will fit right in with the thriving restaurants and art galleries the South End is famous for, and is sure to give The 1850 hosts an unbeatable edge in the South End market!

Sales efforts are led by Lyndsey Wakeham, 1850 Sales Director, and a direct representative of The 1850 in-house marketing team Cresset Marketing, LLC. I am excited to be the part of a restoration that boasts contemporary loft, but still maintains a sturdy industrial character and mirrors its South End neighborhood. The value here is unbeatable. We are the only new construction building in the South End where buyers can purchase 750 square feet in the mid-300,000 or a two-bedroom option in the mid-400.000’s with such obvious historical character says Wakeham.

A visit to Boston this month would not be complete without a tour of The 1850 lofts and Parti Wall, Hanging Green. The installation will be on display at 90 Wareham Street from May 16 until late June. The related exhibition will run at Pinkcomma Gallery, adjacent to The 1850 on Wareham Street, from May 16 through June 6. The 1850 sales office is open seven days as week. Please call us at 617-988-8008 for a private tour of the condos, or simply swing by to view the forthcoming installation. Ample free parking is available.
