Jason Roback, local real estate developer of The Beacon Condominiums at 81 Broadway, is proud and ready to welcome people to see his latest project.
Roback, 35, has transformed the former home of the Beacon Café – which had previously been converted in to 11 apartments – in to 11 luxurious condominiums.
The historic brick building consists of 4 two-bedroom, two-bath condos, 4 two-bedroom, one-bath condos, and 3 two-bedroom, two-and-half bath (with an office) condos.
The condos are selling starting at $230,000 to $375,000.
The Beacon has undergone extensive renovations including: new kitchens and bathrooms, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, A/C, hardwood floors, and ceramic tile floors. Six of the units have deeded outdoor spaces, some with views of Boston. All 11 units come with a deeded parking space. Eight units have a deeded storage space.
“It’s all high efficiency such as tank-less water heaters and HVAC with central air conditioning,” said Roback, a former environmental consultant who made the transition to real estate development full time two years ago.
Roback, who grew up on the South Shore and lived in Chelsea for ten years, said the reaction to the new building has been spectacular.
“Everybody who has seen the building, loves it,” said Roback. “It’s a beautiful building. The framing is amazing. I feel privileged to have worked on it.”
There have been seven movies filmed inside the building, including the blockbuster hit, “Ted,” “The Equalizer” and “The Departed.”
“When Ted (a talking teddy bear in the movie) gets his own apartment and he’s walking up to his apartment, those are our stairs,” said Roback.
Jeff Bowen, Chelsea real estate broker, said, “Chelsea has undergone a tremendous resurgence under the leadership of City Manager Jay Ash. This building on Broadway in the waterfront district is another step forward for our city. I anticipate that these condos will sell very quickly in this tepid real estate market.”
