29 Commonwealth was designed and built in 1894-1895 as an elegant residential building called Haddon Hall. Designed after the “French flats” that were in style at that time, these historic luxury apartments were built with every modern amenity of the period. Located at the corner of Berkeley Street and Commonwealth Avenue, the eleven-story building of steel, wood, and brick was most notable for soaring well above its neighbors, offering unparalleled views in the heart of Back Bay.
A full renovation of Haddon Hall will restore the exquisite original architecture while bringing it up to date as a reconfigured luxury residential building, complete with garage parking. Nine spacious condominiums, 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.
