Pierce Boston condo asks $1,700-plus a square foot

Fenway is changing

Unit 25-2K, a 1,148-square-foot condo on the 25th floor of the under-construction Pierce Boston residential tower at 188 Brookline Avenue in Fenway, is asking $1,991,6000—or $1,734.84 a square foot.

Such a sum is not unusual in modern Boston—and hasn’t been unusual for a while—but it is rather striking for Fenway.

Then again, if a new building is going to upend the neighborhood’s previous affordability (very) relative to the rest of downtown Boston, it’s Pierce Boston.

For one thing, the 30-floor, 340-foot tower with 109 condos and 240 apartments will be Fenway’s tallest building and one of the tallest buildings in Massachusetts, period, west of Back Bay.

It is due to include more than 20,000 square feet of street-level retail and restaurant space as well as amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool and lounge, a fitness center, a restaurant, and a 24/7 concierge.

In other words, serious luxury for the area. Enough for $1,700-plus a foot, though? We’ll see. Pierce Boston’s condos have proved popular so far, well ahead of the tower’s 2018 scheduled opening.
