I love member referrals, mostly because it's usually a win-win situation. The referrer gets some sort of bonus and the referred gets some sort of discount.

62 Boylston is an apartment building downtown right across the street from the Boylston T stop. It's right above that Starbucks on the corner of Boylston and Tremont. For those of you currently looking for an apartment downtown it's a really convenient location. FYI - the building only has studios and 1 bedrooms.

So right now the resident referral bonus is $300 for residents. That means that if someone in the building refers a new tenant, that person gets $300 subtracted off the rent for the next month. How would that benefit you? Well I live in the building, so I can refer you and then I'll split the bonus with you and cut you a check for $150. It's a win-win for someone that's looking for a place to live anyway.

Here are some pros and cons that you should be aware of:

Pros:
1. Really convenient location downtown - close to the green, red, and orange line.
2. 24 hour Security guard on the first floor to keep the riff raff out (effectiveness of the security guards is debatable but they're there.)
3. Proximity to lots of great things: The Sports Club LA, Chinatown, The AMC Boston Common Theater.
4. Coffee junkies will appreciate living above a Starbucks.

Cons:
1. No parking in the building.
2. The homeless shelter is across the street so there are sometimes questionable folks hanging around outside. No real danger to you though, in my opinion.
3. The building is full of students. Students never seem to sleep.
4. Some jerk keeps leaving bleach in the shared washer on my floor so it ruins all my clothes.

Tips to help you:
1. If you are looking for an apartment in a highrise - most of them have management offices that you can rent from fee-free. This is true for 62 Boylston. Don't get sucked into having to pay a realtor one months rent if you don't have to.

2. The studios in the building vary drastically in size from 250ish sq ft up to about 400 sq feet and the price only varies by about $50. Make sure if you're getting a studio to look at ALL of the available ones so you can choose the biggest one.

Comments from me: If you read my earlier post about moving, yes I am planning on leaving this building. I just think it's time to get out of a studio and live in a real apartment. Also, my new neighbor is really loud - so there's only so much I can bear. Overall I really enjoyed my time here. The location can't be beat. I'm planning on looking for something else in a building nearby.

Send me and email if you'd like to be referred and I'll contact the management office for you.

    Hi Shoerel,

    I no longer live there, but when I lived there last year, I paid about $1400 for a studio. Here's a link to their site. I'm not sure how often they update it, but there is contact info for the management company.

    I was actually a resident there living on the 9th floor and I know there was a flood because the pipe was right above my apartment. Did you know the exact date of the flood?
