Three beautiful homes available at Millennium Tower

Enjoy a fine meal while savoring the grand views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in Unit 3910.

Imagine if you had two full floors of the finest lifestyle amenities right within easy reach of your own home.

Imagine going to a large exercise room with the newest in state-of-the-art equipment, so upscale that a simple device on your keychain tells the trend mill or bike exactly how it should be set to match your exercise program.

Imagine swimming in a 75-foot heated lap pool and then relaxing in a Jacuzzi and unwinding in the steam room.

Imagine going to a theater and not only being able to watch a movie, but to do so sitting on an amazingly comfortable chair while munching on gourmet popcorn. And when the movie is done, imagine being able to discuss it with a professional movie critic and your neighbors.

Imagine being able to listen to interesting talks from experts in their fields or playing in weekly poker and pool games.

Imagine being able to eat at a fine dining facility right in your own building with food that could be prepared for you by James Beard award-winning chef Michael Mina.

All of this is not just a dream – it is part of the lifestyle residents enjoy in Millennium Tower at 1 Franklin St. in the Downtown – Midtown district at the former site of Filene’s. At 60 stories high, this is currently the tallest residential building in New England, a shimmering glass palace of luxury and grace.

Millennium Tower offers three levels of opulent living: The City Residences (on the lower floors), the Grand Residences (on the middle floors), and the Penthouse Residences (on the top floors), each with a variety of open floor plans to choose from.

Every home at Millennium Tower includes contemporary design, meticulous craftsmanship and exceptional designer finishes. All the units are amazingly quiet, thanks to the solid windows, well-insulated walls and the seven layers that make up the floors. While each unit boasts sleek ivory oak hardwood flooring, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious foyers, state-of-the-art kitchens, luxurious baths, in-unit over-sized laundry appliances and radiant heat under the elegant white marble floors, each home showcases unique characteristics helping to personalize each home.

Unit 2601 is a 1,426-square-foot “City Residence” on the 26th floor that offers stunning views of the Boston Common, Charles River, the Massachusetts State House and the city skyline.

The new owners will love the chic Poggenpohl kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch and Thermador appliances, including a professional gas range and double oven.

The spacious master bedroom has carpeted floors and large closets. The en suite five-piece Travertine bath has a double vanity, a large walk-in shower and an inviting soaking tub.

The generous second bedroom has a large closet and an en suite bathroom.

This home includes a valet parking space.

Unit 3910

Unit 3910, one of the “Grand Corner Residences,” is an absolute four-room palace. It includes two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. This home spans 1,745 square feet on the 39th floor.

The kitchen features polar white high-gloss Poggenpohl cabinets and polished Italian Calacatta marble countertops. The Sub-Zero built-in refrigerator has complementing polar white high-gloss panels as does the Miele dishwasher with Poggenpohl paneling.

For those who enjoy cooking, a large Wolf cooktop with four burners and a griddle under a Faber hood, built-in double wall oven and drawer microwave with glass touch controls in stainless steel finish complete this chic and charming collection. And your guests will absolutely be impressed with the Sub-Zero wine refrigerator.

An island that fits four people for informal meals or snacks overlooks the dining area – large enough to host eight people – with more oversized windows providing lots of natural light and exceptional views.

The master bedroom has two jumbo double closets with custom shelving.

The master bath, like all the Grand Residence bathrooms, has honed white elegant marble floors that continue into the shower. There is also plenty of room in the polished white elegant marble stall shower with frameless full-height glass enclosures and a Grohe rain head and shower wand. The polished tundra grey 1¼-inch solid marble countertops with Kohler fixtures are stunning, as is the pine white décor print cabinetry by Poggenpohl. There is also a luxurious soaking tub.

The second bedroom, currently being used as an office, has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Unit 3405

At 898 square feet, Unit 3405 is perfect for a single person or a couple downsizing with dreams of moving into one of the city’s top residential paradises. This home showcases the fabulous “Grand Residence” design motif, highlighting many of the same upper-end appliances and features.
