Description: The Macallen Building is the second phase of the Court Square Press condominium project of Pappas Properties, which added 140 luxury condos and loft-style condos to South Boston, one of the hottest areas in the entire city to call home. The Macallen is the first true green condo development in downtown Boston, and is being well received by the public for its bold presence and environmentally conscious features.
The Macallen Building is the first residential building in Boston to have a living green roof and to qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Unlike conventional black rubber roofs, the green roof, planted with drought-resistant sedum, will not store solar energy thereby not contributing to the “heat island effect” that raises the ambient temperature in dense urban areas. The green roof also provides insulation and allows rainwater to be collected, stored, and treated.
The Macallen Building is an innovative and unique building that delivers green technology to promote healthy, environmentally conscientious and sustainable living among high-end finishes and full service amenities.
Constructed using non-toxic and recycled materials, and featuring low energy consumption fixtures and systems, the Macallen Building houses 140 condominium units with pricing from the high $400s to over $2 million for lofts, studios, one, two, and three-bedrooms. Duplexes and triplexes are available with private outdoor space. The development features a 20,000 square foot landscaped outdoor terrace space accessible to all residents, which features a three season 60-foot heated lap pool, three gas grills, wireless Internet access, and a cistern in the parking garage below that collects water runoff for site irrigation.
The Macallen Building boasts 34 different floor plans, many with floor to ceiling walls of glass, 24-hour concierge, higher indoor air quality than any standard building, fitness center, and a recreation room for all residents. The development features on-site deeded garage parking, and direct access to I-93 and I-90, as well as the Red Line Broadway T-Stop via a private drive created from permeable concrete pavers.
