City life is ever-evolving. That’s the attraction. The dynamics of modern high-rise towers going up
while Victorian town houses reclaim their glory and historic cobbled-street neighborhoods remain resolutely the
same make city living irresistibly invigorating — at least for the happy urban dwellers we feature. From an artist’s
loft in a converted industrial building in Portland, Maine, to an ebullient penthouse that defies the button-down
reputation of Boston’s Beacon Hill, we present cosmopolitan designs that all have a distinct urban edge.
