Let's jump right in — here's the rundown of all the luxury apartment buildings in the Boston Metro area with all the pertinent details.

FYI: This listed is sorted first by city (Boston, Brookline, and Cambridge), then by neighborhoods in alphabetical order. This should make it easier if you're confident about which areas of the city you'd like to explore.

Let's show you Boston's luxury apartment buildings on the map.

There's been so much construction of luxury apartments and condos in Boston that I was compelled to see just how wild it's gotten. I figured there's no easier way to visualize it than pins on a map. Sorry about the ads at the bottom — I used a free service called BatchGeo to help plot everything in one place on Google Maps, so it's out of my control.

I threw in some pricing too to help contextualize just how these luxury apartments are being priced.

So without further ado, I present to you a map of all the Boston luxury apartments (including some that will open this year).

What does luxury apartments + condos offer residents in Boston?

Luxury apartments in Boston are clocking in at around 30%+ more expensive than a "market rate" apartment. Really, there are three reasons for looking at luxury apartments and footing that large bill:

If none of those are particularly important, then you probably don't want to be looking at a luxury apartment!

Did you know? Most luxury apartment buildings in Boston will cover a broker's fee.

Since working with an agent in Boston comes with a one-month's rent fee, some folks choose to try "going it alone". However, most luxury apartment buildings in Boston will pay the broker fee, meaning you can have a real estate professional tell you about the market, guide you through the search process and schedule appointments/showings for you for free. Woo! 

Why? Many luxury apartment buildings in Boston are not "leased up" — essentially they have a lot of vacant apartments in them that are "losing" rent every month without a tenant. As such, many buildings are offering incredible perks like 1-3 months of rent free. It also means they're willing to pay the broker fee for you.

Not sure where you want to live in Boston?

Our Boston Neighborhoods web app offers a great way to get acquainted with Boston's neighborhoods, focusing on where you'll be commuting to on a regular basis (work, the airport, etc.). A preview of an example search is below — click on the image to give it a try for yourself!

And make sure you get input from people who've lived (or are currently living) in the buildings.

Apartments.com is a great resource for finding reviews. They've gone to great lengths to get reviews from verified tenants (i.e. not staff members of the buildings who seed fake, glowing reviews). Personally, I've found ApartmentRatings.com is fraught with falsified reviews, so go with Apartments.com for sure.

Click the image below to get to the Apartments.com reviews portal — and underneath this screenshot I've placed a preview of the reviews results you'd find for a specific building.
