"Downtown: Home Where The Heart Is" Self-Guided Home Tour

BID Sponsored Event

Downtown Boston has been the hub of revitalization for the past 10 years. Public & private investment totaling more than $3.2 billion has renovated theaters, refurbished hotels, and attracted dozens of new restaurants. Thousands of new residential units have been added in the past decade, increasing downtown's residential population by 23%. An additional 2,000 units are slated to open in the next five years.

Discover why 8,000 people now call downtown Boston home, and why thousands more can't wait to join them, during the Downtown Boston BID's inaugural "Downtown: Home Where The Heart Is" home tour. On Saturday, May 11th, from 11 am-3 pm, residents will open their doors to showcase the best of downtown living.

This self-guided walking tour covers approximately 12 homes, and highlights all the amenities downtown has to offer: exceptional food, unique shopping, and world-class theaters all within walking distance. Stops along the self-guided tour, from 11 am-3 pm, include:

    Millennium Place (172 Tremont St. showroom)
    Archstone Boston Common (660 Washington St.)

All attendees must check-in at 49 Social (49 Temple Pl.) to receive their credentials prior to embarking on the tour. 49 Social will be open from 11 am-2:30 pm as a hospitality suite for tour attendees.

From 3-4 pm, attendees are invited to the Millennium Place showroom at 172 Tremont St. for a preview the condominiums of downtown's newest luxury residence. Set to open this fall, Millennium Place will include amenities such as a garden, health club, and marquee restaurant. Over 50 percent of the residential tower's 256 units are already under agreement.
