Longwood Towers Apartments
Brookline is home to numerous apartment buildings and developments, and finding the right one can be a major challenge. One of the best starting points is deciding which part of this town you would like to live and going from there. If you need to rent a place in or near the Longwood Medical Area, or LMA, the Longwood Towers Apartments at 20 Chapel Street may be the answer. You can learn more about this building and its offerings by reading on below.
Housed in a building that was constructed back in 1926 and completely renovated and modernized in 1993, this apartment development stands eight stories tall and includes 65 apartment units. Originally a prestigious hotel, the building has retained much of its original architecture and design, so it is a unique and interesting place to call home. It consists of three Gothic-style brick towers – Alden, Belden and Chatham – and it tends to be a popular choice for those who work over in the LMA.
There are many amenities to enjoy as a resident of this apartment complex. If you need a place to park your car, for example, you can rent a spot in the secure garage for $225 per month. Dogs and cats are both permitted, but there is a two-pet limit. Pet rent also applies, so you will have to pay a bit extra to house your furry friends. The premises include a state-of-the-art fitness center, nicely landscaped courtyards, a community room and an on-site Zip Car. Although this is an older building, it exudes a lot of charm and has been modernized thoroughly.
As for the apartments in this building, they come with a number of perks. You can choose from one-, two- and three-bedroom units, but note that the vacancy rate here is perpetually quite low. Apartment homes in this building include washers and dryers, which is a convenient touch. Keyless entry into the unit is also available, which makes it a lot easier to come and go. Many units have bay windows, and they all feature hardwood floors, marble baths with heated floors and kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
Since availability is so low for this building, it is not easy to provide an estimate regarding how much rent you would pay for various types of units. However, a one-bedroom unit was recently on the market, so you can catch a glimpse of what to expect by looking at what that one entailed. The unit in question, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, offered around 780 square feet of space. The median rent was between $3,300 and $3,450 per month, so these definitely aren’t bargain units. Given the amenities that you will enjoy as a resident and the quality of the apartments here, though, it’s easy to say that the price may be worth it.
