Key Differences Between Millennium Place and Millennium Tower

Why Are So Many MP

There’s a big, big reason – a towering, but not-so-secret justification – why Millennium Place owners are selling their precious condominiums in a building and association they love. One Millennium Place owner I spoke with may have succinctly explained why more than twice as many MP condo owners have hung for sale signs in the first four months of 2016 as did in the first four months of 2015: she revealed that many of her neighbors are buying condos at the soon-to-be-completed Millennium Tower.

Of course, MP owners were among the first to have an opportunity to buy at MT, but why are so many selling in Millennium Place to buy in Millennium Tower, a new development just blocks away? In large part, it’s because Millennium Tower amenities trump Millennium Place amenities.

Here are just a few of the key differences between these ultra-luxury Millennium Partner developments:

Club Level: MP has some beautiful common spaces, but these spaces are located on the ground level. The common areas at MT, a.k.a. the Club Level, are located on the eighth and ninth floor, an area that is an upgrade in terms of perceived privacy and exclusivity.

Outdoor Space: MP has no outdoor space, but MT has a terrace with a fire pit, communal dining, and intimate seating that spans the entire length of the tower’s south side.

Spa: MT has a whirlpool, nestled into a private grotto. MP has no whirlpool, and no private grotto.

Lap Pool: MT has a 75’ indoor competition-length lap pool accented by 23’ ceilings. MP has neither.

Fitness Area: MP has a nice fitness area, but MT has the latest and greatest equipment.

Dining: MP has a private dining area in the owner’s lounge where you can enjoy the food of Legal X. But if you want the Legal Seafood experience, there are nearly two dozen other venues around Greater Boston to enjoy it. MT will have a much more exclusive dining option: a restaurant dedicated exclusively to residents and guests. Mina at the Tower features the personal recipes of internationally acclaimed chef Michael Mina, whose closest restaurant outside of Millennium Tower is in Florida.

There’s only 256 residence at MP and MLS reveals that 15 Millennium Place residences are currently being marketed for sale, boasting list prices ranging from $869,000 to $4,299,000. That’s certainly a lot of for sale condos, but from what I have heard, some MP sellers who have MT residences under agreement are undecided about which luxury residence to live in and which to sell. Frankly, I think you could have worse dilemmas.
