The Royal in the always-enviable South End was carved out of the old Salvation Army headquarters (and an adjoining brownstone) as if to accentuate the ever-pricier arc of Boston's housing narrative. The redevelopment's 12 units began trading late last year; and the first deals have only now started closing. The most expensive one so far has been for Unit 12, a 3-BR, 2.5-BA floor-through that went for $2,400,000. That was its exact asking price and represents $960 a square foot. The cheapest trade so far at the Royal appears to be for Unit 11, a 2-BR, 2-BA that commanded $1,675,000, also its exact asking price and representing $885.30 a square foot. Above, by the way, are images of the regal renovations snapped by our numbers guru David Bates in October 2013.
Now take a gander at these two interior shots associated with the listing for Unit 4. They represent the first peek inside the Royal. (If you know of any others, hit us up at the always-discreet Curbed Boston Tipline.) Unit 4 is a 2-BR, 2-BA floor-through that went for $1,850,000—its asking price and a sum representing $796 a square foot. That price is basically the average going rate at the Royal so far. Stay tuned.
