About Downtown Crossing
Long known for retail and less for residential property, this remarkably convenient area is in the midst of a major transformation. Positioned between the Theatre District, Chinatown and the Boston Common, there are several fabulous performance venues including The Paramount, The Cutler Majestic and The Orpheum. The neighborhood is also still very much known for it’s major retail presence being home to Primark, Macy’s, DSW, H&M, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. Along with many diamond brokers, jewelry dealers, and most of the city’s push carts. But perhaps the most important addition to the area’s retail attractions and new found residential population is the popular Roche Bros grocery store that opened in the Spring of 2015.
Also adding to the neighborhood’s new found sophistication, the “modern-classic” luxury condominium tower 45 Province was completed in 2010. In 2013 Millennium Place sold out in record time and solidified the revitalization of Downtown Crossing (DTX) with several new restaurants opening in the commercial spaces below. Currently, the long awaited Millennium Tower is under construction (and over 90% pre sold) at the site of the former Filene’s with an expected completion date of Spring 2016. The convenience of this neighborhood is unrivaled, you can walk easily and quite pleasantly to the Financial District, Government Center, Back Bay or Beacon Hill. But if being a pedestrian is not your thing, there are three T stops: Park Street, Boylston, and Downtown Crossing, (red, green and orange lines, respectively), which will ultimately take you anywhere you need to go (seriously, the orange line runs to Back Bay Station where you can hop on the Amtrak).
NOT TO BE MISSED: Brattle Bookstore, cocktails at Yvonne’s, a Pastrami sandwich at Sam LaGrassa’s, Silvertone Bar and Grill, the burger at J.M. Curley’s, Honey roasted Peanuts from the Nut Cart, the wine selection at the Walgreen’s, coffee at Cafe Nerro.
