We thought we knew the condos of Chanel No. 6. We did. But only partly. The luxury condos set to be carved from an old garage at 4-6 Newbury Street, above a new Chanel store, have hit the market (officially as No. 6 Newbury, but we can't help ourselves). They were to start at $3.5 million, per info out last spring. Apparently, that was just a guesstimate: the four units now on the market, in fact, start at $3,875,000. That's for a 3,100-square-foot 3-BR. Then there's a 4,100-square-foot 3-BR for $5,125,000; and a 3-BR that's slightly smaller for $5,025,000. Then! Then we get to the 5-BR spread over 5,900 square feet—that puppy's asking $7,965,000. What'd you think? The listings make clear each is sold as a "shell." So add renovation costs to the price tags.
