The Evolution of Boston Lofts

 

Lofts in Boston today are somewhat different than they were several years ago. The uptake of industrial spaces by Boston developers has led to an increase in loft conversions and with it new developments in this type of residence. Creatives, such as designers and photographers, used to be the primary market for these spaces, fond of the charm of the exposed brick and beam, high ceilings, and large windows flooding the spaces with natural light. Originally a more inexpensive option than their luxury condominium counterparts, lofts began to see a shift. 

As more and more people became interested in this type of residence, the prices began to increase and a new market of luxury buyers emerged. With this shift, the types of Boston buildings lofts were found in also changed. Instead of converted spaces, developers invested in building completely new buildings tailored to the luxury market.

Lofts like Court Square Press and 319A, an industrial-style loft building in Fort Point that brings the industrial feel into a contemporary space, are prime examples of this new luxury loft market.

Water Mill Lofts in Dorchester

The Baker Chocolate Factory has undergone 30 years of renovations to become a beautiful housing community in Dorchester. 

Previously being offered as rentals, the latest units within the complex are now completed and up for sale as of last month, with prices averaging in the low $500,000 range. 

The Water Mill Lofts are located in Dorchester in the Lower Mills area. They are situated right on the edge of the Neponset River, in what used to be the chocolate factory's boiler room. 

The units have maintained their industrial feel, with features including exposed beams, preserved historic features, metal staircases and piping. Gourmet kitchens, walk in closets, glass showers and other luxury amenities fill the 17 new units.

With the upgrades, The Architectural Team have been sure to preserve the history and charm of the building's former sweet life.

There are even reports that visitors and residents still occasionally get a whiff of chocolate, making these luxury lofts a really unique place to call home.

South End Loft Design Inspiration

Lofts often come with a large amount of open space, which is beneficial while at the same time becoming a design challenge. 

In small, open spaces the most important objective is to create a functional area through design. 

Here's how one family transformed their wide open South End loft into a functional family space with areas that suit all of their needs without separating the space too much, thanks to Apartment Therapy

In order to make sure their 1,095 square foot space had everything they needed, it was important to create defined spaces while preserving the openness.

The family was able to do this and effectively created separate areas for a dining space, living room, kitchen, bedroom, play area and work area, without putting up walls or closing off any square feet.

The result is a wide open space with clearly defined functions and no area left unused or wasted. The space is cozy without being cluttered and flows from one space to another easily.
