We told you just a couple of days ago that rents Hub-wide were trending upward. But, woah, Nellie! This 3-BR, 3.5-BA at the InterContinental just went ahead and jumped the line: It's on the market now for $16,750. A tenant would get the understandable luxury finishes and amenities, plus two valet parking spaces and 10-foot ceilings. He, she or it would also get sweeping penthouse views of the Harbor and downtown, better to view the rest of the (struggling) rental market, we suppose, as if some sort of propertied potentate. The whole 2,873-square-foot shebang traded last fall for $2,850,000.
