(BOSTON) -- Hines, the global real estate investment, development, and property manager, provided a first look today to the sales gallery for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Boston, South Station Tower, indicating the launch of residential sales. The luxury condominium residences are located on the upper 16 floors of the highly anticipated South Station Tower and affords buyers a unique hospitality-driven residential experience in the heart of Boston. The skyline-defining tower has been thoughtfully designed by global placemaker Pelli Clarke & Partners, with interiors designed by Jeffrey Beers International and an expansive private sky park designed by OJB Landscape Architecture.
The sales gallery for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Boston, South Station Tower deftly balances luxury design and finish with effortless technology – all within gracious, intuitively planned and programmed spaces. With over 7,500 square feet of space, the suite includes three unique presentation rooms, three sophisticated architectural models to convey the details and scale of the project, and a vast projection to visually communicate the differentiators of the project—such as the incomparable views. The model residence reflects JBI’s prestigious design of the condos, featuring a true-to-life, floor-to-ceiling glass exterior wall, a great room, three model bathrooms and two model kitchens highlighting distinct finish packages on offer.
To celebrate the milestone, Hines hosted a panel discussion within the newly completed sales gallery between several project collaborators including Sarah Hawkins, CEO of East Region, Hines; Fred Clarke, Partner and Co-Founder, Pelli Clarke & Partners; Dana Jacobsohn, Chief Development Officer U.S. Luxury Brands & Global Mixed-Use Development, Marriott International; Tim Rooney, Principal, Jeffrey Beers International; Hee Seung Lee, Associate Principal, Jeffrey Beers International; Cody Klein, Partner, OJB Landscape Architecture; and Sue Hawkes, Managing Director, The Collaborative Companies.
