The new condos slated for 4-6 Newbury Street, where a garage currently stands and where a 10,000-square-foot Chanel store will stand as well, are expected to ask $3.5 million to $6 million each, depending on their sizes and design requests. That would make them among the most expensive listings in Boston when they come online next winter.
News of the project, which its developers, including Irish investor Aidan Brooks, are calling No. 6 Newbury (but that we will henceforth call Chanel No. 6), emerged last week after its approval by the city. The Chanel store will take up the first two floors. Above that will be the six condos: two 2-BR duplexes and four 3-BR and 4-BR units (finally, family-size apartments in Boston, though at a super-premium—sigh). The condos will have floor-to-ceiling windows and buyers can request specific designs, finishes, flooring and cabinetry.
