Downtown Boston’s Winthrop Center, an interesting mixed use development, is rising above the city. The Millennium Residences atop a 62-story office block, offers 317 luxury condos along with a slew of wellness amenities both for residents and Fido. The residences, developed by Alchemy Properties, occupy the 35th to 62nd floors, ranging in size from 777 square feet to 4,659 square feet. Prices start at $1.5 million for a one-bedroom unit.
The most lavish flats are the 15-home Millennium Collection, while includes six penthouses on the 62nd floor and nine “estate homes” on lower floors. The most lavish penthouse is around 4,659 square feet and includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms plus a powder room for just under $15 million.
While every one of the Millennium Residences uses quality materials, such as wide-plank oak flooring, Calacatta Bluette and Statuario marble, Waterworks fixtures and high-end appliances, it gets even better in the penthouse and estate homes. Buyers are invited to work with Greenwich, Conn.-based custom cabinetmaker Christopher Peacock to design the ultimate kitchen, bathroom, and dressing rooms. Want a special coffee station? Leave it up to them. You’re a guy with broad shoulders? No problem. Peacock’s team will measure your jackets to ensure they fit perfectly in your new dressing room.
The 4,659 square foot penthouse offers ample scope for Peacock’s skills. The primary suite is impressively large, with his and hers bathrooms (note that hers is a lot larger than his), and three closets, including an enormous walk-in. There are also two sitting areas in the bedchamber. The rest of the family is well accommodated, too, with ensuite bathrooms. The slightly smaller suite includes a spot for sitting. There is also a family room for TV nights and a flexible room which would make a perfect home office outfitted with Peacock cabinetry.
In fact, about half the units in the building include a flexible space to be used as a home office, media room, or exercise room. Though given that the building includes a fitness center that’s about 5,000 square feet—including a sports simulator, body analytics room, recovery room with massage and physical therapy, and a climbing wall with adjustable pitch levels—not sure why anyone would want to use their private space for exercise. The residents-only part of the fitness center is another 4,000 square feet, including a Junior Olympic-sized pool and a training space adjacent to two studios that host group classes and programs such as yoga, Pilates, and martial arts.
Residents will be able to entertain and socialize via a lounge, screening room, billiard parlor, library, private function room, bar, sprawling outdoor terrace, and children’s playroom.
Let’s not forget about your dog! The VIP (Very Important Pet) Club is 6,500 square feet. The canine amenity program includes space for dogs to run, play, and socialize, along with access to grooming services, physical therapy, training, dog-friendly happy hours (please call it Yappy Hour, please), and exclusive access to a New Hampshire farm for boarding. Yes, you can send Fido to a nice farm family.
