A New Way to Live Downtown

When is a home more than just a place to live? When it is also a way to live. This, at least, is the philosophy of luxury developers Millennium Partners, who have built a reputation for developing large-scale, mixed-use luxury properties in urban centers across the country.

Beyond simply partnering with visionary architects (Handel) and recognized five-star brands (Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton) to design, build and deliver a luxury residential product, Millennium has taken a unique perspective to luxury urban development and created a propriety program – La Vie – to enhance their residents’ total residential experience. This one-of-a-kind immersive social network connects residents to each other and to specially curated experiences in the cities in which they live. Designed around the best the city has to offer as well as their residents’ passions for food, wine, travel, culture, fitness and more, La Vie’s monthly calendar provides residents with access to adventures and experiences no one else (and certainly no other development) can.

Their latest entree into the urban skyline is the Millennium Place project in Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood. There has been much ado about Downtown Crossing’s current revitalization and transformation into a more vibrant and upmarket place to live, work and play. Millennium Place promises to raise the bar even further, not simply by contributing to the rise of the well-heeled in the area, but by connecting them with the culture of the city they live in through La Vie.

Finally, a developer that understands that upscale urban living today is about more than just $/sq.ft., finishes, floor plans and views. Next time I tour a new building in Boston, I will have to ask what social experience they offer, and see what they have to say. Nice work upping the ante, Millennium.
