Here's the latest from Curbed Boston, fulfilling all your real estate intel needs.
SOUTH BOSTON—Plans for Southie's so-called Sausage Parcel are back on. Developer Madison Properties plans a 414-unit apartment complex, with an emphasis on innovation units. The oddly shaped site at 399 Congress Street was originally supposed to be a hotel, but the Great Recession put the kibosh on that.
BACK BAY—Unit 2 at 3 Commonwealth Avenue has hit the market for $6,495,000. The listing comes on the heels of Unit 1 finding a buyer with a price tag of $7,995,000 (quite possibly the biggest condo deal of the year so far).
SOUTH END—The first of the six townhouse-style condos of the converted New Hope Baptist Church at 740 Tremont Street has debuted: a $2,550,000 listing with a 27-foot-wide living/dining/kitchen/powder room.
