The Clarendon Back Bay

What you have all been waiting for – The Clarendon Back Bay has finally opened its doors!


Quite possibly the best location in all of downtown Boston. The Clarendon will sit right on the corner of Stuart & Clarendon Street and boast amazing views from most floors of the building. Whether you are overlooking all of the Back Bay, South End and downtown Boston from its 33rd floor penthouse or an urban view of the Back Bay and surrounding architecture including the Hancock and Prudential Center.

The Clarendon will be comprised of 33 floors of some of the best apartments and condominiums the city will have to offer. Floors 1-14 will be retail and luxury rental apartments and floors 15 – 33 will be super luxury condominiums. The rental entrance will be on Clarendon Street and the luxury condominium entrance will be on Stuart Street (official address will be 400 Stuart Street).

The Clarendon Back Bay

The Details:

The Clarendon will have a knock-out lobby covered in marble, 24 hour concierge (of course), a brand new restaurant – Casey’s Tavern (Part of the restaurant group who owns Grill 23 & Excelsior). The retail space will also have a gourmet market where you can pick up high-end prepared foods, wine, flowers, etc. Also off the lobby will be an Aceline (sp) Culture Lounge which will be stacked with gorgeous books from French publishers (fun cocktail table books).

Other great amenities in The Clarendon will include a Club Room which abuts the massive outdoor terrace on the 6th floor. Also there on the 6th floor will be a state-of-the-art fitness center (with some sort of Equinox Tie-In, remember, Related owns Equinox).

Of course – Valet parking, door man and every other amenity you should find from a super luxury building done by a world class developer. A deeded (valet only) parking spot is included with all units except the 1 bedrooms, but may be purchased (or rented) at an additional charge. The parking garage is massive and includes 393 parking spots on 4 levels.


The condominiums are from floor 15 – 33. (We grabbed the very first unit in The Clarendon last week for one of our clients!) There are 16 one bedrooms (these wont last), 48 two bedrooms, 29 three bedrooms and 3 Penthouse homes. Floor 31 you will gain access to possibly one of the best private outdoor spaces in all of Boston to come! As far as the rental apartments there will be 178 luxury rental units in the complex.


Bathrooms will have Golden Onyx counter tops, combo deep-sunk Jacuzzi and stand up showers, marble throughout, huge built in medicine cabinets and Kohler/Stearn fixtures – gorgeous package and tastefully done! View pictures here.

Kitchens will have oak floors which flow throughout the living spaces, marble countertops (of course) sub zero fridge and wine cooler, walnut cabinets, Miele 5 burner stove, Miele oven, auto-closing cabinets and pendant lighting over the island countertop and killer closet space.

Living spaces are well designed and you can even crack your windows open for some fresh air!
