What $1,000,000 Buys You in Boston's South End

The average price of a downtown Boston condo is probably right around $1,000,000 right now, with little sign that it will deviate from that magic number any time soon. So we thought for our latest Curbed Comparisons we'd dip into that ever-popular neighborhood known as the South End to see how far a cool mill goes nowadays on its condo market.

Our very first stop is at 619 Massachusetts Avenue, where Unit 1 has recently been price-chopped to $999,500. The parlor duplex has three bedrooms; two and a half bathrooms; and 1,548 square feet (some of which is pictured above). No parking, though.


Unit 509 at the future Sepia Boston wants $999,900 for its two bedrooms, one bathroom and 950 square feet. The development is supposed to have all sorts of tricked out amenities, including underground direct access to Whole Foods. Parking available for an additional fee.

Now we crack the million-dollar mark with Unit 602 at the 285 Columbus Lofts. It's a 2-BR, 2-BA spread over 1,131 square feet; garaged parking is available for rent. There's a common roof deck, too. Total? $1,025,000.

We return to the Sepia Boston for Curbed Comparison No. 4. Unit 204 is a 2-BR, 2-BA running to 1,248 square feet. It's asking $1,194,000. Parking is available for an additional fee. The only rendering of the unit is that of the complex's future common roof deck.

Finally, here's a penthouse loft at 1140 Washington Street retailing for $1,199,000. It has one full bathroom and runs to just over 2,000 square feet. Basement storage and a parking space are included in the price.
