A first look at the amenities at Old Town’s Scott Residences

The Scott Residences, a 6-story, 71-unit boutique building in Old Town is gearing up to receive its first occupants later this month.

I stopped by several days ago for a first look at some of the amenities, which are extensive for a building the size of Scott Residences.

The lobby, which will have 24/7 door staff, is complete and the adjacent “villa room” is nearly complete. The villa room has seating, a large TV, a pool table and a fireplace with an antique mantle.

My first stop on the top floor of the building was the resident lounge, which has a fireplace and will have a fully-equipped kitchen.


The lounge opens to a large south-facing sundeck which will be landscaped and include seating areas, a fire pit and gas grills.

Adjacent buildings frame a view of the skyline to the south.

A walkway heads north past a green roof area.

There’s an additional outdoor space on the north side of the building with a panoramic view over Old Town.

A relatively-large fitness room has floor-to-ceiling windows looking north.

I stepped out onto the balcony at one of the top-floor apartments for a quick look up and down Wells Street.

The pet-friendly, smoke-free building will have a first-floor dog run, a limited number of resident storage lockers, and a resident-only parking garage with complimentary bike racks.

Ground-level retail in the building includes a Starbucks, which is already open, and Massage Envy, which is slated to open next month.


Plum Market is directly across the street from The Scott Residences.
