Better highrises out there

there are no amenities, except the gym. Something is always faulting in the apartment and maintenance constantly comes in to do check ups. For the price of rent, the building is falling apart.

You can also hear everything, don't even bother complaining because they do nothing about it.

It's a smoke friendly apartment, so it's ok for me to have to tolerate smoke smell coming in through my AC vent causing me to second hand smoke and stink up my belongings, but I can't have a pet because the buidling is not pet friendly.

Recent Upgrades in Centrally Located Apt

Avalon Prudential has undergone significant renovations in the past few years to keep up with the new housing stock in Boston. There is now a gym, most of the units are renovated, and the layouts are some of the most spacious I've seen for luxury housing stock in Boston. Highly recommend to others who want to live in centrally located Back Bay and part of the Prudential complex.

Avalon at the Pru

The Avalon located in the Boston's Back Bay on Boylston Street is wonderful. It has a great location, right near the Copley T stop, great amenities (rent includes some utilities, access to gym, etc), beautiful building. Very expensive but comes with great perks.

Awesome Location!

The apartment had a very spacious floor plan and I loved going to the gym. The workout equipment was modern and it was kept very clean. Prudential and Copley shopping malls are right in your backyard, and there are so many places to eat nearby, plus an apple store. It's everything you need right at your doorstep.

Great Location but Old Building

You honestly cannot beat this downtown location. Easily walking distance to everything you need and more. Access to Shaws, Parking, Shopping and Public Transportation all underground (great this past winter). Management is OK, they are quick to reply to requests however are not always easy to get answers from. The building itself is on the older side and the walls are very thin. Thank you colicky baby upstairs...
