Construction for the Ceinture has officially broken ground at 20 West Fifth Street. The new luxury condo building will feature 54 residences and is located within the “Dorchester Avenue Growth Corridor” as coined by the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA). The BPDA envisions approximately 25 million square feet of new development for the Dot Ave Growth Corridor.

Dallin & Gollinger, a real estate team affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, will be selling the units comprised of one-bedroom plus dens, two-bedrooms and two bedroom plus dens ranging from approximately 800 square feet to over 1,400 square feet. The project also includes 41 parking spaces, luxury amenities and outdoor terraces.

“We are very excited to begin groundbreaking at The Ceinture,” said Matt Dallin. “The project’s proximity to the Broadway MBTA station as well as Fort Point and the Seaport coupled with luxury amenities and concierge service will make these condominiums ideal for anyone who enjoys an urban lifestyle.”
“Matt and I worked tirelessly on the design of the Ceinture to create a desirable product,” said Dan Gollinger. “We believe that the location within the Growth Corridor, in conjunction with the high-end quality of the residences, offer a unique purchasing opportunity for prospective buyers.”

The project is slated for completion in the Spring of 2020.  For more information please visit TheCeinture.com.

FYI – The Ceinture – (which means belt in French) will reside where Colmar Belting Company (A division of Motion Industries) once stood.  May come in handy on trivia night!

    Vacant warehouses and other industrial building should be flattened ASAP. They’re a security concern, eye sore & just an all around turn off to anyone considering living in this area. Marr should sell all of their holdings while the pricing is still high and devs should come in and building 500 units. Like that little scrap metal shop at A & 4th….that needs to go, you can run that business anywhere.

    Maybe someday.

      As long as that MBTA depot is there no one is going to pay top dollar to live in that area. Also, not sure how many of you have been to South Bay Center….but with that being your closest retail area….god bless. There’s a dedicated police station in the shopping center…..yikes.

    I think “Cintura” (belt in Italian) would have sounded better…ciao!
