Inside the Upcoming $18 Million Penthouse on Beacon Hill

Situated just across the street from the Massachusetts State House, The Archer Residences will deliver 67 distinguished condominiums to Boston's historic Beacon Hill. These residences are expected to deliver a new era of luxury living to the neighborhood, with most units ranging in price from $1.8 to $10 million. The 6,000 square-foot penthouse has been listed for $18 million.


This new residential project calls for the construction of luxury condos with resident amenity space and below-grade parking for 54 vehicles. The site includes two connected buildings totaling approximately 171,950 gross square-feet and an adjacent paved area. The first building, known as the Gleason L. & Hiram J. Archer Building (Archer) was once used in the past for Suffolk classroom space. the second building, known as the Frank J. Donahue Building (Donahue) was used for Suffolk classroom and administration space. While the proposal has since dropped the "Donahue" designation, both buildings will still be graciously renovated for luxury urban living.

The residences offer beautifully appointed oak flooring, gas fireplaces, and a hand-selected collection of premium stone finishes, forging a strong sense of warmth and effortless comfort. The welcoming lobby is home to the Archer Residences' 24/7 concierge. The residential Club Room provides a lushly furnished extension of home for both business and pleasure.


A private valet enhances the arrival experience, with parking in an indoor garage. The 1,850 square-foot fitness center provides a wellness studio for those looking for a peaceful place to stretch or work with a personal trainer. A playroom is available for children as well as a pet spa for your furry companions. Residents will enjoy sweeping views of Beacon Hill from the sprawling 4,800 square-foot roof terrace.


The Archer's penthouse will offer Beacon Hill's most elevated living experience, providing 6,000 square-feet of carefully appointed living space complemented by an extraordinary 2,500 square-foot private terrace. 


The sprawling custom kitchen offers custom brass hardware, floating oak shelving and cabinets, LED under-shelf lighting, and a large waterfall Venato marble island, detailed in stainless steel and copper. Chef-grade appliances include dual Wolf ovens and twin Sub-Zero stainless steel refrigerator and freezer units.


The distinctive interior includes a gas fireplace with marble and oak paneled surround, a large skylight and glass-enclosed floating wood and steel custom staircase.


The penthouse's unique private terrace creates a setting where indoor and outdoor living blend seamlessly in a timeless style. Features include floor-to-ceiling glass panels, an infinity-edge jacuzzi, grilling stations and a fire pit.


The Archer Residences will embody the architecture befitting the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. A detailed facade and new projections will be added to the building to assist in complimenting its design and character. Developers JDMD Owner LLC have expressed their keenness to pay attention to the general design, arrangement, texture, material, and color of the architectural features involved and the residence's relationship to its surrounding buildings. The Archer Residences will embody the modern character of the famed Beacon Hill neighborhood.
