One of the many appealing characteristics of downtown Boston living, aside from its abundant history, is its access to public transportation. The MBTA (called the T) is the oldest and fourth largest public transportation system in the country. Mason Place, an eight-story building located in the heart of Boston, is within a quarter mile of the T bus and train lines.
The building is the previous home of the Boston Herald Traveler, which was formed in 1967 when the Traveler and Herald merged. Take a visit to Mason Place's lobby and you will see the original gold Boston Herald Traveler newspaper elevator doors!
Physically located next door to the new Ritz-Carlton hotel and condominiums, it is within walking distance of Boston's most appealing locations, including Boston Common (known to be one of the oldest parks in the country), Chinatown (established in 1890), Downtown Crossing (for plenty of shopping and restaurant locations), and the Theatre District. The property has 127 spacious units with central heating and air conditioning along with 7 full handicapped accessible apartments.
Mason Place is located in the heart of Boston with convenient access to many cultural and historical landmarks. Tuft’s Medical Center, one of the country's finest hospitals, and Emerson College are also within walking distance.
