BOSTON, Dec. 6, 2017 – PGIM Real Estate has acquired the Tower at One Greenway, a 21-story Class A apartment community in Downtown Boston, on behalf of institutional investors. PGIM Real Estate is the real estate investment business of PGIM, the $1 trillion global investment management businesses of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU).
One Greenway is a 181,442-square-foot LEED Gold–rated apartment community with 217 apartments, 3,180 square feet of ground floor retail and a three-level parking garage. Centrally located at the northern end of Kneeland, Albany and Hudson Streets, it is within walking distance of South Station, Boston Common, Chinatown, the Theater District, and Tufts Medical Center, with easy access to Boston’s major subway lines and the Financial District.
The ground floor retail is 100 percent occupied by BeanTowne Coffee House and East Boston Savings Bank, and the parking garage is leased to a third-party operator, Pilgrim Parking, Inc.
“The acquisition of One Greenway is a unique opportunity to make a long-term investment in a transit-oriented, high-barrier-to-entry property in Downtown Boston,” said Alfonso Munk, Americas chief investment officer for PGIM Real Estate. “It is also consistent with our portfolio’s strategy to gain residential exposure in a core gateway submarket.”
Select community amenities include a rooftop terrace with fire pits and Seaport views; a 1/3-acre outdoor park with deck and grills; and a 24-hour fitness center with weekly classes and yoga studio. The smoke-free property has incorporated green features such as Energy Star appliances, water conservation fixtures, electric car charging stations, designated parking for fuel-efficient vehicles and 9,863 square feet of landscaped open space.
Todd Goldberg, head of Northeast Transactions at PGIM Real Estate, led the transaction.
