Unit 2206 at the Metropolitan in the Chinatown-South End borderlands hit the sales market in mid-November 2014 for $1,899,000. The price did not seem all that vainglorious given the sheer vitals of the corner penthouse (starting with the fact that it was a corner penthouse): two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, 1,805 square feet, two garaged parking spaces, a private deck, and just loads upon loads of natural light and city vus. And yet. Down came the price through the end of 2014 and the start of this year. Unit 2206 has finally traded. In the end, the condo sold for $1,300,000 in a deal that closed over the weekend. That is a full $599K off the original asking price. What's that again about the Boston housing market cooling?
