Built in 1984, the Four Seasons Place condominiums are located just across the street from Boston’s Public Garden. Attached to the Four Seasons Hotel, the building as a whole occupies a beautiful and historically important location in Boston’s Back Bay Neighborhood. When the building was originally constructed the developers of the residences ensured the privacy of the owners and their guests by situating the entrance to the condominiums around the corner from the hotel entrance along with its own drive or Porte-cochere of sorts.
Floors one through seven have hotel rooms and suites, the highly regarded Bristol Lounge, and one of the nicest hotel lobbies in the city. Floors eight through sixteen include the Four Seasons Place residences. Living in the condominiums allows resident owners all of the amenities of this world class hotel, including room service, access to the health club whirlpool and pool, discounts on massage services, notary public services, etc.
In the winter of 2008/2009, the residences went through their first major assessment on the building since it’s inception. The work began with a complete upgrade of the two residence elevators. This included adding a highly advanced computer management system to control both cabs with a type of smart technology that would actually anticipate usage from historical trends; i.e. if one cab consistently would go to the tenth floor every morning at 6:00 a.m. for a resident who was going for their workout, the cab would be there waiting for them. In addition, new cab interiors were added that included updated chandeliers.
The second portion of this major renovation to the building included a complete renovation of the common areas throughout the building. Each common hallway received new wall coverings, carpeting, crown-molding, paint, doorbells, unit signs, chairs and artwork from such artists as Phillips Jones, andy Nartonis and Michael Compton.
In addition, new cabling was installed within the walls for all units that included CAT 6 cable, two fiber runs, and an RG11 cable ensuring that the building will be well equipped into the future to handle whatever type of technology becomes available.
There are currently 6 condominiums listed for sale at Four Seasons Place. They range from one to four bedrooms floor plans, with total square footage between 972 sq.ft. to 4,022 sq.ft. Prices on these units run from $899,000 to $8,950,000.
