Boston, MA MP Boston, a local arm of developer Millennium Partners, has unveiled The Millennium Collection at Winthrop Center, a collection of luxury penthouses and premier residences featuring professional grade kitchens, custom cabinetry by Christopher Peacock, and spaces that support and sustain high-performance lifestyles. Slated for completion in April, the twelve penthouses occupying floors 61-62 and homes on floors 35 and 60 will attract discerning homebuyers who consider how the built environment can infuse wellness into every part of their daily lives.
Winthrop Center is a 691-foot tall, mixed-use tower setting a new global standard for integrating health and wellness, sustainability, and technology in building design. Sitting atop 812,000 s/f of office space modeling the most energy efficient solution for large-scale buildings and slated to become the world’s largest Passive House office building, the residences feature a flexible live/work environment, eco-friendly appliances and materials, and amenities that optimize wellness and social health, including a wellness club for people and pets, a world-class fitness center with mind, body, and nutrition services, and a vibrant multi-floor community gathering space with food and beverage experiences and cultural programming.
“In creating the penthouses and residences that comprise The Millennium Collection, we envisioned a seamless integration of environmental advantages, experiences and amenities that make residents feel good inside and out, and physical spaces that deliver a sense of well-being,” said Richard Baumert, principal, Millennium Partners. “The building is high performing thanks to the energy-saving and health benefits inherent in its Passive House office design, and The Millennium Collection is the highest expression of the Millennium lifestyle, allowing residents to live their best lives while focusing their energy where it matters most.”
The homes within The Millennium Collection feature high ceilings – with principal rooms showcasing ceiling heights at 11”4’ or higher – which research has shown creates mindsets of freedom, creativity, and less confined thinking. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light and the views boost mental clarity and peace of mind. In addition to the interiors, custom designed cabinetry by a Christopher Peacock creates a natural retreat where transitions between downtime and more active moments of working at home, exercising, cooking, and entertaining guests are effortless.
“A more evolved wellness perspective includes how you feel in your environment,” said Peacock, the London-born, New York-based designer whose work entails producing handcrafted classic British cabinetry of the highest quality, made to order in the United States. “We are honored to partner with MP Boston for The Millennium Collection, where the meticulously crafted kitchen, master bath and dressing room cabinetry will resonate with those who care about the serenity of the spaces in which they are living.”
Millennium Collection buyers will work directly with Peacock and his team to create their one-of-a-kind kitchen, baths, and dressing rooms. Installation entails hand-painting each cabinet in place to achieve a depth of color and subtlety in texture that cannot be achieved otherwise. This painstaking attention to detail and dedication to quality sets The Millennium Collection apart from other luxury residences.
“When we refer to the ‘professional grade kitchens’ featured within The Millennium Collection, we are alluding to creating something to the best of our ability, using the best joinery techniques and the finest materials available. The finished product is inherently professional grade because it is built to last forever,” said Peacock.
In addition to searching for quality interiors that will stand the test of time, today’s consumers are driving an evolution in design that includes environmental considerations and more streamlined aesthetics that help people achieve goals and feel good.
The Millennium Collection’s clean, simple design extends across penthouses and residences, in addition to a contemporary, sophisticated palette of materials and finishes, and energy-saving appliances. Upon passing through a grand entryway, residents and their visitors will immediately sense the holistic approach to creating a comfortable, sustainable, and health-conscious environment.
The professional-grade kitchens showcase sustainable appliances that put luxury and innovation at the forefront of the experience, including energy-efficient, built-in Sub-Zero food preservation systems, convection steam ovens that provide the healthiest way to prepare a meal, and Wolf induction cooktops, which allow a faster, safer, healthier, and more energy-efficient method compared to gas cooktops.
The kitchen’s wide-plank oak floors complement the designs by Peacock, which include a hand-painted kitchen island and wall cabinetry with polished nickel hardware. The kitchen countertop, backsplash, and island top in Arabescato marble add to the artful aesthetic. The cabinetry is on par with the most refined pieces of living room furniture, as kitchens today accommodate all types of living, from working at home to relaxing or cooking a meal after a day in the office. Dressing rooms and bathrooms are designed as private, personal spaces that provide respite and a sense of escape. The color palettes and materials of these rooms enhance wellness by delivering a serene space for residents to rest and recharge.
“We are proud to present the elegant work by Christopher Peacock for The Millennium Collection, which delivers a timeless design that residents can make their own,” said Baumert. “Residents of The Grand Penthouses and The Grand Estates will discover homes that support daily rituals and nurture a positive mindset, a perfect complement to the amenities just outside their doorstep, designed to keep them balanced and fit, engaged and inspired.”
