Meet the Royal, the New Kid on South End's Block

Still in the construction phase, the Royal is not wasting time making its presence quietly known. The historically preserved brownstones on Shawmut Avenue in the South End has already put 6 out of 12 units under agreement.

The Royal, located at 407-409 Shawmut Avenue in the South End comvines 2 buildings, a 1800's brownstone and 1892 insurance building, to create 12 units. The original character of the building was preserved, such as the architectural details and 10-foot-high ceilings. The units are mostly 2-or 3-bedrooms ranging from 1,600 to 2,500 square feet each. Luxury high end finishes cover the units from top to bottom, from the marble countertops and free-standing tubs. The projected is slated to be completed by 2014 but is already 50% under agreement. The remaining 6 units range from $1.2 million to $1.9 million with the exception of the 900-square-foot 1-bedroom on the ground level. This unit is still available for $575,000.
