Commonwealth Building Really Wants to Be a Big Mansion

The 7,000-square-foot, 25-foot-wide apartment building at 86 Commonwealth Avenue has been on the market just over 75 days now. It's offered as "an incredible single-family conversion" or the perfect place to play live-in landlord (it's all rentals now). The price was just cut by a whopping $400,000, placing it amongst the biggest price-chops of the year so far. It's still $5,100,000 (or about $728 a square foot) plus the amount it would take to convert it into instantly one of Boston's bigger manses. Did we mention, though, that there is parking for six tied to the price? Landlord that and the rest will follow.
