The figure $1,000 a square foot is impressive enough for the Boston real estate market, a threshold established largely through the then-new Ritz Carlton about 15 years ago and now routinely trumped. Usually, though, a property rarely crests the magic number by all that much—a few hundred, perhaps, maybe a full thousand. If a listing does swing for the fences, its tag invariably comes tumbling down. Unit 1205/1209 at the Four Seasons off Boylston Street is not one of those listings. It's been asking $3,106.06 per square foot since late September 2015, and it shows no signs of sending that sum downward. The more than 3,300-square-foot condo is the fruit of combination of neighboring units, a joining that created a 3-BR, 3-BA with flourishes such as a library and voluminous views of the Common and Boston generally. How much for the whole shebang? $10,250,000 and holding.
