Downtown Boston Homes for Sale
Boston's center of business and government combine with the Boston Common and the Public Garden to form a dynamic downtown. Downtown Boston also serves as a sanctuary for shoppers, offering everything from large department stores to cozy boutiques.
Much of downtown's street pattern dates from the 17th century. By the late 19th century, early skyscrapers began to make their appearance in Downtown Crossing as retail establishments evolved into major department stores and financial institutions moved beyond their traditional homes in the Post Office Square area.
Home to many of Boston's most historic sites such as Faneuil Hall, downtown Boston has also benefited from two innovative plans designed to enhance and enliven the area: the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and the Crossroads Initiative. The Greenway has beautified the area by weaving twenty-seven acres of green space into the fabric of the city. Crossroads has introduced a new set of 21st century street standards through downtown and has reunited the surrounding neighborhoods to Boston Harbor and each other, with the Greenway as the centerpiece.
This vibrant heart of Downtown Boston offers an experience of city life at its best. Everything is within walking distance as commerce intersects with leisure. With incredible sights, phenomenal food and exquisite shopping centers, there is no better place to live than in the heart of the City.
