Serenity, Boston

BOSTON— NKF Capital Markets announced that it has been exclusively retained to sell Serenity, a 100% market-rate, 195-unit luxury apartment community located in Boston. Executive Managing Director Michael Byrne, Managing Director Thomas Greeley and Associate Casey Griffin of the Boston office, which is led by Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Robert Griffin, will oversee the transaction of the high-rise trophy asset.

Completed in 2017, Serenity boasts condominium-quality finishes including contemporary kitchens, sleek bathrooms, walk-in closets and oversized windows providing abundant natural light and sweeping views. The property also features vibrant on-site amenities highlighted by a two-story, dual-entrance lobby, spacious lounge, elevated pool deck, private courtyard, state-of-the-art fitness center and direct-access parking garage.

“Featuring 100% market-rate apartment units, high-rise steel construction and a transit-oriented location with immediate access to major employers, Serenity has enjoyed impressive leasing velocity throughout the past 12 months,” said Byrne. “The property also boasts an exceptional urban core location in Boston, a premier gateway city, and a fee-simple offering structure with no ground lease, which will appeal to a variety of potential investors.”

Serenity, Boston

Serenity is located in Boston, a major gateway market that is driven by a highly educated workforce and unmatched presence of prestigious universities, major global headquarters users and prestigious medical institutions. The asset is strategically positioned at the northeastern edge of Olmsted Park, a nearly 13-acre green space that is part of Boston’s iconic Emerald Necklace park system, and adjacent to the Longwood Medical Area, a globally renowned medical, research, life science and education hub anchored by Harvard Medical School. The property therefore provides its residents with scenic views and abundant employment opportunities – in fact, more than 60% of Serenity’s current residents work within the medical/healthcare sector.

Serenity also enjoys a transit-oriented location along the MBTA Green Line, which facilitates rapid connections to key destinations throughout the Longwood Medical Area, Back Bay, Downtown Boston and Cambridge.
