Room description

*Note: This room is for July 1st 2020, no exception!

This posting is for a room in a 2BR/2BA condo at the Metropolitan Condominium on the 18th floor with gorgeous city views! It's a high-rise building centrally located in downtown Boston. I am a current tenant at the Metropolitan, but have secured a new luxury unit on the 18th floor and in the process of seeking a roommate to join! I am hoping to keep a similar living arrangement so looking for a mid-late 20's, female, clean, NON-SMOKING (or drugs of any kind), a professional or graduate student only.  

Photos are old as it's currently occupied, but when we move in July, the unit will be renovated with new carpet replacement and new paint of the entire unit! The wall color will be a light gray.

No pets allowed.

-Front Load Washer & Dryer in the unit. Safe & clean - no need to go to community laundry amongst COVID-19!

-Trash chute and recycling on each floor

-A small garden, playground, and community room

BEST Location:

-Green line Boylston and Park street stops, and South Station within walking distance

-Red line Downtown Crossing stop is about 10 minute walk

-Convenient to Tufts Medical, Dental, Financial district, the Boston Commons Back Bay, Midtown, South End restaurants etc

-Silver Line SL4 and SL5, and 11 buses stop across the street

-Utilities average about $60-$70 per person for cable & internet, and another $20 or so for electricity depending on usage.

TO SECURE THE ROOM: We would need the following upfront: first month ($1,650), safety deposit fee ($1,650), Realtor's fee ($1,650), background & credit check application fee ($25). Building has a move-in/out fee of $200.

The roommate:

In her late 20s and works in the healthcare industry.  The apartment is often kept low key and quiet to respect everyone’s space and schedule. The ideal roommate would be a busy professionals, graduate/medical/clinical student who is focused on work and keep the partying/social gathering outside of the apartment for a productive environment.

If interested, please take the time to include information about yourself (ex: employment, typical schedule, lifestyle, hobbies, pet peeves, anything you think a potential roommate should know, etc) - these replies given first consideration! Please only reply if you fit the description above and can keep common areas clean. I'm not a neat freak but would like to share this new unit w/ a responsible person who can pick up after themselves and respect others belongings and privacy.

This is an extremely competitive price compared to the rest of the apartments in the Midtown as a one bedroom unit in this building or studio in other buildings starts at $2,600-$3,000! Anything cheaper w/ these amenities in this area is a scam - be careful! I am hoping to fill the room soon, but please only respond if it’s a serious inquiry, thanks!
