The Lancaster

The Lancaster is a sustainable, transit-oriented condominium complex consisting of 55 one, two, and three-bedroom, mixed-income units in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood. Located directly on the MBTA Green Line between Boston University and Boston College, the 80,000 SF building was the first condominium complex in Boston to earn the coveted LEED Gold certification.

Situated on the crest of a hill overlooking Commonwealth Avenue, The Lancaster offers stunning skyline views of Boston. Designed in the English Jacobean style by Tise Design Associates, Inc., the building blends in seamlessly with the historic architecture of the neighborhood, and also features a spacious library which opens to a courtyard patio. Amenities include a fitness center and yoga studio, as well as a bike storage area.

All market-rate units were pre-sold prior to the completion of the project, and a two-bedroom unit was sold in December of 2017 for over $1 million – marking the first time a condominium in Brighton had achieved that pricing milestone.
