The Royal at 407 Shawmut Avenue in the South End was one of the more anticipated condo debuts of 2014. Carved from an old Salvation Army building—as if to place a big, juicy exclamation point at the end of the neighborhood's gentrification—the development offered 12 units starting originally at $811 a square foot (what we imagine is a rather busy price point in Boston nowadays). One such unit was No. 2, a 2-BR, 2.5-BA spread asking $1,250,000; or roughly $733 a foot. It closed early on Monday. The final amount? The exact asking of $1.25M.
