Bower’s commitment

The health and well-being of our residents, visitors and the entire Boston community is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the impacts of COVID-19, and are dedicated to providing support and resources that promote a healthy environment for everyone. We have implemented new procedures and tools, and are following the guidance and recommendations by the CDC, Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston.

Latest Updates

The State released its Reopening Massachusetts Plan, with information on how and when different industries can reopen. In accordance with this plan, a public health advisory for everyone in Boston, except essential workers, to say at home from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. remains in effect. All residents and visitors must practice social distancing and wear a mask in public places. For more information, please visit


Our leasing office is now open and our team is available to help prospective residents find their new home in-person or virtually. However, we have made the following adjustments to our building tour procedures:

  • Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins accepted.
  • Face masks required for all visitors. We’re happy to supply one for those who need it.
