The sale of Unit 903 at Flagship Wharf on 8th Street closed on Jan. 31 for $1,125,000.
Given the condo's square footage (1,390) that means the corner spread traded for $809.35 a square foot, the highest per-square-foot price for a Charlestown condo since the Great Recession started in 2008 (and nearly twice the average per-square-foot price for the neighborhood right now). Listed by Karen Colombosian of Otis & Ahearn, the price includes two parking spaces (one valeted, natch) as well as access to the building's gym and concierge. The condo last traded in November 2009 for a mere $1,035,000.
