J/Brice Design Renews Its Role as a Boston Hospitality Design Powerhouse
J/Brice Design International, Inc., Boston, is wowing the city's in-town residents with sophisticated interiors at the most desirable addresses in The Waterfront and Seaport Districts - where property values have soared to record-breaking levels paralleling San Francisco’s and Manhattan’s toniest neighborhoods. Latest residential commissions read like a who’s who of elite Boston properties such as 50 Liberty, Harbor Towers, Burroughs Wharf and Lewis Wharf, to name a few.
“The old New England conservatism with Chesterfield sofas and ship paintings with angry seas is over.” - Jeffrey Ornstein, CEO, J/Brice Design
The Boston-based design firm J/Brice Design International, Inc. - well-known for redefining luxury interiors in oil-rich Gulf States - has returned to its roots here to redefine luxury on Boston’s Gold Coast, home to the city’s most affluent residential real estate.
J/Brice Design, founded 30 years ago, is wowing Boston’s in-town residents with sophisticated interiors at the most desirable addresses in The Waterfront and Seaport Districts - where property values have soared to record-breaking levels paralleling San Francisco’s and Manhattan’s toniest neighborhoods.
The firm is fully engaged in Boston with an array of recently commissioned luxury residential projects. JBrice’s hottest new-construction contract is for 50 Liberty being developed in Boston’s sizzling Seaport District by The Fallon Company as the ultimate in waterfront living - on track to establish a new benchmark for Boston residential property values and an A-list clientele.
J/Brice previously turned the clock ahead on I.M. Pei’s iconic Boston landmark, Harbor Towers, where Ornstein’s firm recently completed a $2.3 Million reinvention of the pioneering waterfront condominiums with fashion forward interiors. “Jeff took our 40 year-old buildings and made our public space new with sophisticated reimagined interiors that appeal to a wide variety of tastes,” said Ann Thornburg, former president of the condominium association board of trustees.
Ornstein’s firm has also won accolades for its interiors at Burroughs Wharf. Marilyn Stempler, chairwoman of the design committee, noted, “Burroughs Wharf is a unique, high-end condominium development on the waterfront. Our vision was for a fresh, new elegant timeless design, which Jeff successfully fulfilled.”
J/Brice’s new and recent residential commissions read like a who’s who of elite Boston properties. In addition to 50 Liberty, Harbor Towers, Burroughs Wharf and Lewis Wharf, J/Brice Design current contracts include The Residences at The Intercontinental, The Residence at The W and, across the river in Cambridge, The Regatta Riverview, and The Riverfront Condominiums.
“There is a style revolution going on and we’re putting Boston at the forefront by creating an international luxury residential environment here. The old New England conservatism with Chesterfield sofas and ship paintings with angry seas is over. The city now parallels New York and other major cities for high-style, in-town luxury living.” Explained Ornstein, adding, “Wealthy young professionals here increasingly forego the suburbs. They are trading manicured lawns and six-car garages for high-end in-town properties with multiple amenities and, we are meeting that demand by delivering a fresh international style and luxurious flair to high-end residential life in Boston. It’s good to be home.”
