Following the closing on roughly $17.1 million in construction financing for the Boston-area adaptive reuse project of the historic Van Brodie Mill, Trinity Financial has announced the opening of Boston East, a 25 percent pre-leased luxury community of 200 units. Developed in partnership with East Boston Community Development Corp., the mid-rise property includes six artist live-work-sell units and a community art gallery.

The waterfont site at 126 Border St. is situated near Central Square Park, while East Boston Memorial Stadium is a 15-minute walk away. The neighborhood offers a wide range of cultural and dining options, along with varied outdoor activity choices. Downtown Boston and the MBTA’s Maverick station are also within easy reach.

Waterfront-inspired design

Boston East

Boston-based ICON Architecture Inc. was in charge of the design of the property. Their maritime-themed approach materialized in wharf-like building wings reaching towards the waterfront, organized around a central entry. Cortney and Bob Novogratz handled the interior design, based on a “marine industrial” theme and integrating vintage pieces in their concept.

Trinity Management LLC will manage the pet-friendly community, which features:

  • floor-to-ceiling windows
  • decks with water views
  • landscaped courtyard
  • fire pit
  • rooftop lounge
  • indoor gym
  • dog spa

“Recalling the site’s shipbuilding history, we have created contemporary residences that reimagine waterfront living in Eastie,” said Nancy Ludwig, principal of ICON Architecture Inc., in prepared remarks.
