BACKGROUND

Built in 1867, this four-story Victorian building, which encompasses an entire block, has been managed by East Brown Cow since its acquisition by 123 LLC in 2000.  The mechanical systems of this historic structure, which is 37,845 sq ft, have been completely reconditioned, including a new boiler.  The exterior stays true to its historic roots with sandstone and brownstone detail, and a cast iron façade at street level, along with decorative columns and scroll-work.  Amenities of the building include a gym with new exercise equipment as well as separate locker rooms for tenant use.

In 2019, following extensive renovations, Commonwealth Hotels and East Brown Cow announced the opening of a brand-new 'urban inn' in this property featuring intuitively-designed residences that include full kitchens and living spaces. Built to be a hands-off experience with virtual check-in and check-out, the urban inn combines features of a familiar hotel stay with the added autonomy of an interim apartment rental. The location of the property allows guests to walk to a myriad of restaurants, stores and breweries while also being just a few blocks from the harbor.
