The Charlesgate, built in 1891 by John Pickering Putnam, consists of three addresses: Four Charlesgate East, 535 Beacon Street, and Ten Charlesgate East. These addresses became known as a premiere location during the city’s Gilded Age. It is said that Putnam’s design of the Charlesgate was heavily influenced by his interest in Nationalism.
The Charlesgate remained a hotspot for the wealthy until 1920 and remained a respected residential address until the early 1940s. Boston University purchased the hotel and used it as a female seminary. Boston University used the hotel as a dormitory until the 1970s and later, Emerson College used it for student housing.
Charlesgate was converted into condominiums in 1998. This residential destination is sought after due to its classic brownstone feel combined with its historic background and great detail.
