On Thursday, you learned about the $81,000 heated parking space available in the South End/Roxbury borderlands. Well, that's got nothing on this gem in Beacon Hill: $300,000 for a 171-square-foot parking space in a Brimmer Street parking garage. It sounds staggering, yes, but as Jennifer Athas helpfully points out in The Herald: "The price tag of $1,754 per square foot may seem outrageous, but it's less than some residences in the city."
And here's how you know it's really, truly Beacon Hill: The parking space comes with a condo fee of $250. Again, staggering, but it covers master insurance, car elevators, exterior maintenance and, of course, valet parking. We assume huge parking price tags like this become more common as downtown Boston's parking situation becomes more Thunderdome.
