Boston Magazine’s Concept Home at FP3

There are a lot of exciting and dynamic places to live in Boston- the bustling and luxurious Back Bay, the European feeling South End, gritty turned glam Southie or green and funky Jamaica Plain. But the hottest new area to be developed is Fort Point Channel. Bridging the financial district and the waterfront, this industrialized area has condo and apartment buildings popping up left and right- but none as heralded as FP3. Designed by the prolific and oft-published Hacin+ Associates, this new condo building offers up sleek modern space in the heart of this exciting “new” area of Boston. And just to show it off a bit more, they have teamed up with Boston Magazine to design a concept home in one of the penthouses with some of Boston’s best home design vendors. And here is a sneak peek into the space! Be sure to check out the Concept Home site for lists of events that will be coming up in the penthouse! Who wouldn’t want to attend a party here?

The building:

The kitchen, featuring a very unique raw edge stone backsplash.

Dining area combining the detail of a traditionally styled chandelier with modern wall treatment and dining furniture.

Living area and stairs.

Master bedroom, complete with my new obsession, black walls (which look open and not imposing when paired ith the huge windows).

Master bathrrom complete with drool-worthy bubble chandelier.

The boys room (starring the cutest little Schnauzer! Does he come with the penthouse?)

The patio off the boys room featuring a cool window graphic for privacy.

An 8 track themed bathroom!

The HUGE terrace (I’ve seen it in person and it is HUUUUUUGE) makes any city dweller sigh in awe- I can easily imagine a lovely early fall evening evening with friends and lots of wine out there!

On the main floor of the building world renowned chef Barbara Lynch has opened two incredible spaces well worth checking out. Sportello is a modern, high-style “diner” featuring amazing dishes like a grown up version of grilled cheese and tomato soup (I’ve had it, amazing). There’s a little market for gourmet goodies and a dessert counter as well!



Below street level is Barbara’s speakeasy style bar, aptly named Drink. I fell madly in love for this bar when I went not only for the design (not a bottle in sight, all kept below the amazing bar), but also because the bartenders whip up unique concotions based on what flavors and liquors you tell them you like. I have no idea what i had, but it was toe-curlingly delicious. Did I mention they serve the drinks in vintage glassware? Yeah, that’ll make anything taste even better in my opinion!


(P.S. I die over the logo. DIE.)

When do my moving trucks arrive?
