When Unit W12B at the Mandarin Oriental dropped for $13,500,000 in August, speculation raged (here, at least) that it might set a Boston condo sales record. The 4,922-square-foot, 3-BR, 2.5-BA spread on the 12th floor was, after all, priced higher than the priciest closed condo deal in the city's history: $13,200,000 for a penthouse, also at the Mandarin, in June 2011. Given the over-asking trend in Boston's condo market, it seemed inevitable this puppy would roar.
Unit 12WB was price-chopped on Tuesday by $600,000, ending the likelihood it will set that Boston sales record. It's now asking a mere $12,900,000, which still makes it the priciest condo listing in Marty Walsh's city right now. Stay tuned.
