Commonwealth Avenue Boston Apartment


About

Commonwealth Avenue, known simply as Comm Ave to locals, stretches from Newton to Boston, running through the Allston and Brighton neighborhoods, among others. Given that Comm Ave covers a lot of ground, it should come as no surprise that it has plenty to offer in terms of apartments, dining, shopping, greenspaces, and even some historical attractions.

Depending on where you live on Commonwealth Avenue, you’ll find a range of price points, making it desirable for everyone from students and faculty to young professionals and families. A Commonwealth Avenue Boston apartment in Allston or Brighton will likely be more affordable than Commonwealth Ave apartments in Back Bay. Where Allston is highly populated by students attending nearby universities such as Boston University, Boston College, and Northeastern University (to name just a few), young professionals and families gravitate toward Commonwealth Avenue apartments and houses near Oak Square or Brighton Center.

The beauty of any Commonwealth Avenue Boston apartment is that it is sure to provide easy access to public transit via the Green Line, with a myriad of T stations to choose from. There are also many buses servicing Comm Ave. Wherever you live along Commonwealth Avenue, you’ll find that it is walkable and is bike-friendly. Those who drive will want to apply for a resident parking permit for their given neighborhood for easier access to residential street parking. Finding an apartment that comes with its own parking spot is a definite plus.

Restaurants on Commonwealth Ave appeal to a wide range of tastes and budgets, from Asian fare to tapas to sports bars and pub food, as well as upscale options. Living on the Allston end of Commonwealth Avenue near Harvard Ave is a foodie’s heaven. In addition to the eclectic mix of restaurants, Comm Ave boasts public art and murals as well as popular music venues like the Brighton Music Hall.
