South Boston, MA Advisors Living, the residential sales platform associated with Boston Realty Advisors, has sold all of the residences of The Mezz, 42 new units in a luxury building incorporating the historic West Broadway Theater.
The former theater building at 420 West Broadway that was an entertainment centerpiece for generations of residents is now The Mezz. It is home to 42 families and individuals enjoying spacious modern living in the restored structure paired with a new six-floor wing with studios, one and two-bedroom units.
“The Advisors Living team congratulates the new owners of homes at The Mezz on their purchases and the creative developers for preserving and revisioning a colorful part of the neighborhood, and designing such desirable 21st century living spaces,” said Janice Dumont, CEO of Advisors Living.
The Broadway Theater opened in 1920 and was designed by architects Clarence H. Blackall, Clapp and Whittemore, according to Wikipedia. Following a fire, it was rebuilt to the designs of architect Clarence Kivett in 1938. Originally a vaudeville house, it later became a movie theater.
The last residential unit of The Mezz, developed by Boston Property Development of Quincy, closed this month. The new design for the historic portion and the additional new construction was created by RODE Architects Inc. of Boston.
“The Mezz is immersed in the vibrant pace and pulse of South Boston’s most desirable neighborhood,” said Brad Braunstein, new development residential advisor at Advisors Living. “The Mezz is an exclusive collection of modern condominium residences, and the new owners are experiencing a new kind of urban chic in a historic building.”
The new residents at The Mezz are a mix of young professionals, first-time home buyers, those downsizing from the suburbs, and investors in a second home.
The units are of contemporary design with high-end finishes, natural light and offering city views.
The former theater’s lobby space has been sensitively restored as commercial space, retaining decorative detail. Residential units are on floors 2 through 6, and many have balconies. The building features a two-tier rooftop indoor-outdoor patio, a club room with kitchenette, a billiard room and underground parking as well as bicycle storage.
The residential units feature open-concept floor plans with large windows, white oak hardwood flooring throughout, spacious kitchens with Concerto Quartz countertops, Bosch three-door and counter-depth refrigerators, LG washer-dryers, Wilsonart Ruskin Oak millwork, and Porcelanosa Dover Acero tilework.
The Mezz is located close to dining and gathering spots, including Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar, Capo Restaurant and Supper Club, Fox and The Knife, and the Lincoln Tavern.
Yoga and fitness studios are nearby, as well as South Boston’s active farmer’s market.
Within walking distance of The Mezz are Whole Foods, Foodies Market, Stop and Shop, Trader Joes and CVS. It is a 14-minute walk or short bus ride to the Broadway MBTA Station.
