New, 2 comments

Including in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Beacon Hill

While not a small amount of cabbage, $3,500 a month is one of the busier price points in the Thunderdome that is the Boston rental market right now.

Here’s what the total leases in several neighborhoods. For what other amounts get you, check out our latest Curbed Comparisons.

↑ We start in South Boston at 45 West Third Street, where Unit 404 is asking $3,500 on the nose. The 768-square-foot one-bedroom (plus study), one-bathroom comes with access to amenities such as concierge service and a fitness center. The rent also includes a garaged parking space.

↑ The townhouse at 87 Boylston Street in Jamaica Plain runs to 1,518 square feet and includes three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. There is also a two-car garage. It’s asking $3,500 even.

↑ Now to Charlestown, where Unit 3 at 13 Park Street is asking $3,500, plus $275 a month for a parking space. The 1,200-square-foot duplex has two bedrooms and one bathroom. (Unit 1 in the same building is also for lease for $3,500. It’s a 1,100-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom.)

↑ In Dorchester, there’s a condo for rent at the Baker Square complex at 1241-1245 Adams Street. Unit CH102 is 1,640 square feet and includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rent for the duplex covers access to amenities such as a pool and a gym.

↑ We end in Beacon Hill, where Unit 1 at 22 Embankment Road is asking $3,500 a month for its 1,035 square feet and its two bedrooms and two bathrooms (on two levels).
