BOSTON—Redfin's out with its take on the Case-Shiller housing-price index for October: "All three of Boston’s tiers fell in October, with the middle tier taking the biggest hit. Month to month, the low tier was down 0.5%, the middle tier fell 1.0%, and the high tier decreased 0.8%." [Redfin]

The first building will also include a roof top terrace. The second building which will reach five stories and be nearly 60 feet tall, will also include residential units along with a second floor garden terrace and a roof top garden terrace. The second building will also differ in shape, reducing floors on the southern side to allow for more light on the second floor garden terrace." []
