When I think of Church Park apartments in Boston, the first word that comes to mind is: Class. From their Tillinger’s Concierge services to their resident’s lounge by the expansive roofdeck, it seems to be one of the more classy, quiet, and well maintained apartment buildings in Boston.
Being located where it is on Mass Ave, between the South End and Back Bay, I was first skeptical of the perceived noise level and age of the building. After speaking with a number of residents, I realized that this was of no concern. Unlike most apartment buildings, the walls are filled with concrete, which insulates and cancels out almost all noise between apartments and outside. While Mass Ave is one of the busier streets in Boston, I was pleasantly surprised at how serene and private the building actually feels. You can walk from here to the Prudential or Copley areas, as well as the coveted Newbury Street and even BU all in less than 15 minutes. Not many apartment buildings in Boston can boast walking distance to all of these areas as well as the South End restaurants within 15 minutes.
In terms of price, Church Park is well below its competition. Archstone Boston Common, Avalon Prudential, and Exeter Towers are all within a stone’s throw away, but are far beyond that in terms of price. With apartments starting in the low $2,000’s for over 700 sqft in even the smallest apartments, you really do get a great deal. Archstone’s apartments are brand new but tend to have smaller floorplans starting in the mid $2,000s for one bedrooms. It’s no wonder that many of the residents of the community have been there for over 10 years.
What is really going to sell you on the building is the roofdeck! Hopefully it’s a nice day when you visit because you’ll be able to see the amazing and expansive city skyline.
