7INK is a new concept in the South End that allows you to rent spaces by the room, instead of a full apartment, in a high-rise building that you share with the community
Just as Boston rents reach record levels a new building has opened in the South End, with an alternative housing option called “inclusive living.”
With Boston rents at an all-time high this may be the perfect time for 7INK. It’s a brand new concept in the South End.
“The latest data is an apartment averages over $3,000 a month in the city. And you can come here and we can actually put you into the building for under $2,000 a month with every included,” Ted Tye of National Development explained.
It can be a good option if you don’t mind roommates. There are 180 apartments from studios to four bedrooms, which you rent by the bedroom. You’ll share community spaces, including a big kitchen and a roof deck. There are private workspaces, and the old Boston Garden scoreboard overlooks the lobby.
“It’s a high-tech building, with some low-tech classics. Each room features a murphy bed to offer sofa space and a sleep space.
It’s like house sharing, but in a gleaming high-rise. They plan events constantly and even help find compatible roommates.
