Pierce Boston is a residential apartment and condo building located in the Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts (USA), at the corner of Boylston Street and Brookline Avenue. The 30-story mixed-use development includes luxury condo, apartment, and retail components. It is the tallest building in the neighborhood.[1] The name Pierce was chosen as it is the former location of gourmet supermarket S.S. Pierce.


Roof-top pool deck

The building was originally proposed by Samuels & Associates in 2013 as a 22-story residential tower called The Point.[2] It was the first Boston project by the Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica. The building is clad in glass and metal, with paneling in a pattern intended to reflect the masonry buildings around it.[3]

The building contains retail space (floors 1–2), 240 apartments (floors 3–17), and 109 condominiums (floors 19–29).[4] The 30th-floor level includes outdoor roof space, with a pool and hot tub for apartment and condo residents, a lounge and barbecue area for condo owners, and private roof decks for individual condos.[5][6]

The apartment levels include 45 short-term rentals managed by Sonder. The retail space is home to a CB2, Tiffani Faison's Italian concept restaurant Orfano, The Wine Press, and Nathalie Wine Bar.[7]
