485 Harrison: Loft-stye luxury in the SOWA Arts District.
The condos at 485 Harrison were renovated in 2003, and are quintessential modern loft-style units. Formerly a large warehouse building built in 1914, this building has the attributes you would expect: Very high ceilings, oversized windows, and exposed brick and ductwork.
485 Harrison also has all the modern amenities you would expect from a recent renovation, such as air conditioning, modern systems, elevator, and roofdeck with eye-popping views.
The 485 Harrison Lofts are located in the SOWA Arts District in the South End, it is right across the street from the 450 Harrison artists building with its studios and galleries. There are "First Fridays" open studios, Sunday farmers markets, food trucks, and crafts markets. It is also just blocks from the largest Whole Foods in Boston as well as legions of restaurants. This is one of the most vibrant areas in the city.
