Unit 1 at 18 Union Street near Inman Square is one of the Hub's smallest condos currently available for purchase. It's not quite small enough, at 490 square feet, to be micro-apartment and it's—just barely—a proper two-bedroom. Well, now, as of last week, it's $10,000 cheaper. The "walker's paradise," according to the listing, now runs to $229,900 (or about $469 a square foot, almost exactly what condos trade for on average in Cambridge right now). It's been on the market for barely two months now and this is not its first chop—it began its listing life $249,900.
