A landmark building offering the luxury of high design in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay.
A full renovation of Haddon Hall by famed designer Ken Fulk will restore the exquisite original architecture while bringing it up to date as a reconfigured luxury residential building, complete with garage parking. Nine spacious residences, including a sprawling duplex penthouse with a rooftop terrace, will be finished with a level of detail and customization rarely seen in today’s residential development.
Designed in 1894 by architect J. Pickering Putnam for real estate developer William Henry Harrison Newman, Haddon Hall originally offered “french flat” style apartments along with shared dining rooms and parlors where residents could exchange ideas. This historic luxury apartment building was built with every modern amenity to attract notable residents listed in Boston’s Blue Book.
Located at the corner of Berkeley Street and Commonwealth Avenue, the eleven-story building of steel, wood and brick was most notable for the stir it caused in the Back Bay just after its initial construction. Neighborhood regulations, which were established before elevators, required a minimum building height of three stories but had not set a maximum. The ensuing controversy of 29 Commonwealth’s height led to new restrictions in 1896, leaving Haddon Hall the tallest structure from this brief period in the city’s architectural history. From then on, no other building would ever rise or be altered to offer comparable views in the heart of the Back Bay.
With the finest views in all of the Back Bay, Haddon Hall combines the glamour of European midcentury design with the streamlined elegance of Art Moderne to create an atmosphere of warmth and sophistication.
A marble mosaic at the entrance announces the new Haddon Hall. Inside, residents and visitors are welcomed with a dramatic interior design inspired by the 1940s. A graphic marble floor pattern anchors a hand crafted reception desk, where a full-time concierge graciously awaits. Haddon Hall offers all the modern amenities but evokes a sense of old-world glamour with a palette that includes brass, marble, shagreen and plaster.
The private elevator—wrapped in brass with a terrazzo floor—offers secure access directly into the nine expansive residences. Each one is richly appointed with chevron parquet floors, classic paneling, tracery ceilings and detailed wood trim. The custom kitchens and baths are finished with marble and metal pinstriping details along with a combination of brass and polished nickel hardware.
The true luxury of Haddon Hall lies in the experience of living there. The convenience of a high rise concierge attended building encapsulated in the heart of a Back Bay brownstone with garage parking is matched only by the finishes and the unparalleled views. The building soars above others in the neighborhood thanks to its construction before maximum building height restrictions existed. Residents will enjoy unprecedented views across the Boston Public Garden to the Charles River down the Commonwealth Avenue Mall.
Located on the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Berkeley Street, Haddon Hall is in the heart of Back Bay. Just steps from the Boston Public Garden, Newbury Street, and the Charles River, it is the perfect place to call home.
