This just in: Boston East Now Accepting Applications for Artist Live-Work-Sell Apartments

Boston, MA (May 30, 2017) – Trinity Financial and the East Boston CDC announced today that applications are now available for BPDA-certified artists interested in affordable live-work-sell units at the Boston East development.

Located directly on the waterfront in the heart of East Boston, Boston East is a $71 million boutique, mid-rise residential community that features 200 units, including 20 affordable units and six artist live-work-sell units that will be made affordable to individuals and families earning up to 70 percent of Area Median Income. Boston East also features a large, first floor gallery that overlooks the harbor and will showcase work from local and regional artists.

“We’re excited to announce that we now have applications available for artist live-work-sell units at Boston East – a space that provides artists with the opportunity to live in a welcoming environment that fosters creativity, community and the arts,” said Abby Goldenfarb, vice president at Trinity Financial. “Because of its outstanding amenities, eclectic design and ideal location, Boston East is the perfect complement to the thriving arts scene in East Boston.” 

The six artist live-work-sell units will be located on the first floor of Boston East, and they are designed to meet the unique needs of artists through highly-amenitized, spacious apartments, flexible floor plans, and an abundance of natural light. Apartments feature the latest amenities, including GE slate appliances, plank flooring, quartz countertops and custom walk-in closets by Elfa. Artists will also have access to a community gallery and outdoor patio spaces attached to their units where they can sell their work.

For an opportunity to live in this exciting artist community, BPDA-certified artists must submit their completed applications by June 16, 2017. Income restrictions and artist form review apply. Applications are available at 31 Liverpool Street, East Boston, MA or by emailing BostonEastMgr@trinitymanagementcompany.com.

“East Boston is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the City, and the arts community is just one of the reasons why it is such a great place to live,” said Goldenfarb. “From local galleries and arts organizations to the ICA’s planned expansion, East Boston offers aspiring artists a rich cultural experience and an inspiring community of collaboration.”

Boston East, which is designed by Boston-based ICON Architecture, is ideally located next door to the Atlantic Works Gallery and the East Boston Artist Group studios at 80 Border Street. It features an acre of open space that includes a number of community outdoor spaces – including multiple decks and a large rooftop lounge. Boston East will also actively engage the waterfront through a harbor walk trail that extends around and past the development. Residents will also have access to onsite paddle boarding, a kayak launch, an indoor gym and a dog washing station.

The interior of Boston East will also feature designs by Los Angeles-based husband and wife duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz, who are known for their eclectic taste and unique style that has been shown on HGTV and in the collaboration with companies such as CB2. In this project, residents can expect the interior to reflect influences from Boston’s rich history and the nearby marinas and shipyards in a non-traditional way.

Trinity Financial is utilizing its vast experience in creating successful market rate luxury living spaces to develop a unique and desirable residential community at Boston East. Among the luxury communities Trinity Financial has developed or has currently in development include One Canal and Avenir, the Carruth and Treadmark buildings in Boston, 66 Summer Street and Vela on the Park in Stamford, CT and Foundry Square in Newburyport.
