The Kensington has made the Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking, placing #1 in Boston 7 years in a row for resident satisfaction and #69 out of more than 122,000 properties nationwide.
Each year, J.Turner Research, the leading market research firm exclusively serving the multifamily industry, conducts a ranking of nationwide properties across various online review sites, and assigns an aggregate compilation known as an Online Reputation Assessment (ORA™) score. Only the top 1% of properties in the nation in terms of online reputation make the elite list. Of the 1,303 properties that made the 2020 list, Kensington ranked #69 with a .95 ORA score.
Centrally located in Boston’s Theatre District near Chinatown, The Kensington features 381 beautifully appointed studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses throughout 27 stories. The Kensington is LEED Gold Certified with materials and systems carefully selected to minimize the impact on the environment. The Kensington is owned by Kensington Investment Company and Northwestern Investment Management Company and managed by Bozzuto Management Company.
The Kensington has made the Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking every year since the inception of the list. From 2017-2019, The Kensington ranked in the Top 20, and it claimed the top spot in the nation in 2017. The property continually places so highly thanks to its scores in occupancy and retention, as well as service, which is rooted in the commitment to exceed resident expectations.
The challenges posed by the pandemic make the 2020 achievement all the more remarkable. In a letter to associates, the Lewis Family noted the special contributions of Kurt Therrien, Jeremy Baker, David Durgin, Andres Cubilete, Dan Pereira, and the entire Team at The Kensington in making this success possible. As the letter noted, “Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.”
