Boston rent comparison: What $3,500 a month rents around the city

Including in Dorchester, South Boston, and the South End

The sum $3,500 a month is quite a busy price point in Boston’s Thunderdome of a rental market. What’s it lease right now? Let’s find out in our latest Curbed Comparisons.


↑ We start in Dorchester’s Lower Mills area, at the 1,319-square-foot Unit B-107 at 1245 Adams Street. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms; and the rent covers a parking space.

There is also in-unit laundry and access to a gym and an indoor pool.

↑ Square in the South End is Unit 6 at 534 Massachusetts Avenue. It’s a 960-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom.

There’s in-unit laundry, a private roof deck, and central AC.

Unit 3A at 45 Hancock Street in Beacon Hill runs to 700 square feet. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom.

The landlord is offering $3,200 a month rather than $3,500 if a tenant moves in sooner rather than later.

↑ A large private deck with a grill and furniture—never mind an high-definition projector and a retractable movie screen—is a part of the rent at Unit G at 83-85 Brookside Avenue in the Egleston Square area between Jamaica Plain and Roxbury.

The 1,900-square-foot spread includes two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.

Unit 403 at 15 Sleeper Street is also in a border area—this time between Fort Point and the Seaport District. The 1,150-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom comes with in-unit laundry and central AC.

A resident sticker is available for on-street parking.
