BOSTON, July 25, 2023 – The leasing office for Washington Village’s first new construction apartment community, South Standard, is now open in the South Boston neighborhood. A partnership between Samuels & Associates, Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation and Core Investments, South Standard expands the options for high-quality rental residences, with 214 units just a short walk from the Andrew MBTA Red Line station. Move-ins are slated for this fall.

“This area is at the center of a renaissance bringing benefits for existing residents and appealing to a whole new group of people looking to live in Southie,” said Jeremy Ouellette, Vice President of Portfolio Operations for Samuels & Associates. “With South Standard at Washington Village, we are focused on delivering a new option. Select homes also have outdoor terraces, walk-in closets, and dens ideal for home office set-ups.”

With homes ranging from studio to 3-bedroom apartments, South Standard offers a variety of sought-after amenities including bike storage, a “groom room” for pets, a terrace with grills, fire pits, green space and dining areas, as well as a roof deck with a fireplace, lounge seating and a reservable area for private gatherings, all boasting city and water views. The fitness center also includes a flexible yoga room and the community has on-site parking with electric vehicle charging stations. The apartments offer in-unit laundry, GE stainless steel appliances, as well as quartz counters and vanities. Select homes also have outdoor terraces, walk-in closets, and dens ideal for home office set-ups.

In this evolving part of the city, South Standard offers a new housing type to complement the existing homes and commercial spaces. The seven-story building also delivers approximately 20,000 SF of retail space on the ground floor to provide new conveniences and services to residents and nearby neighbors.  In addition, a new public park will open alongside the new building, welcoming the broader community to the heart of Washington Village in its initial phase.
