Boston rent comparison: What $2,500 a month gets now

Including in JP, Dot, Back Bay

The region’s prime rental season is almost here, so we thought we’d look at what certain rent points command in certain heavily shopped areas.

Cambridge for $2,500 was first. Now up? Boston for the same amount.

Big takeaway: It looks like $2,500 or thereabouts commands a studio or a 1-BR in Boston, but in newer, more modern buildings.

↑ There are three 1-BRs available at Dorchester’s 106 Burtonwood Street for $2,500 a month. Small dogs allowed.

↑ Staying in Dorchester, but moving closer to Southie, we find a 1,080-square-foot 2-BR, 1-BA at 45 Rogers Street asking $2,500. In-unit laundry included as is central air. No pets, though.

↑ Up in Charlestown, two studios at 45 First Avenue—each 500 square feet—are asking $2,450. Central air included, and cats and small dogs permitted.

↑ The Metromark complex at 3611 Washington Street in Jamaica Plain has a 568-square-foot studio asking $2,470. Cats and dogs permitted; W/D and central air included; and garaged parking is available for $175 extra a month.

↑ At the South End’s newish Troy Boston at 55 Traveler Street, there are several 1-BRs asking around $2,500. They range in size from 575 square feet to 690. Central air and W/D included.
