ARMORY is a Georgian Revival masonry structure built in 1907. Some of the most significant architectural details include a one of a kind arched doorway, a partial gable slate roof and decorative cast stone and lentils. Conveniently located on Bunker Hill Street, between Auburn and Baldwin, the building fills nearly an entire city block.
The building was most famously used by the United States military for activities involving the 182nd Infantry Regiment, one of the oldest in the United States Army. In 1968 the property was deeded to the Trustees of the Boston Public Library housing the Jordan Collection, one of the largest collections of children’s books in the world.
Currently under construction with occupancy scheduled for the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2016, ARMORY will include forty-two high-end condominium units with exceptional ceiling height and natural light. Garage parking is also available in the building. Based on unit location, some of the residences will have private outdoor space with stunning city views. Additionally, there will be two common outdoor areas. One is a large roof deck also offering city views and the other is a beautiful ground level patio space. There will be six (6) units specifically designated as affordable market units in compliance with the BRA requirement for new developments.
ARMORY is located directly on the MBTA bus line with several Orange Line stops nearby. There is also a neighborhood park one block away. Whole Foods is the anchor in the Bunker Hill Mall, a small shopping center located approximately 2/3 of a mile from this site. The shopping center also offers a U.S. Post Office, Citizens Bank, CVS Pharmacy, ACE Hardware and chain restaurants. Charming local shopping and dining options are also located on historic Main Street. The development is approximately 1 mile from the new Assembly Row which features high-end retail outlet shopping, an AMC Movie Theater, Legoland and a large variety of popular restaurants offering all types of fare.
