Boston rent comparison: What $3,250 rents around the city now

Including in Jamaica Plain, the South End, and South Boston

It should be no surprise that in Boston $3,250 a month is a pretty busy price point in the rental market. What’s that sum command toward the end of August? Our latest Curbed Comparisons finds out.

↑ We commence in Charlestown, where $3,250 a month rents the two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom Unit 2 at 60 Baldwin Street. The 1,016-square-foot condo comes complete with central air and a private roof deck.

Unit 803 at 170 Tremont Street in downtown Boston is in a building next to the Common. The rent on the 700-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom also covers a parking space and access to 24-hour concierge service.

↑ In the South End, $3,250 a month commands Unit 1A at 140 Shawmut Avenue, a condo in the newish church conversion known as the Lucas. The 838-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom comes with its own direct private entrance; and the rent covers amenities such as gym access.

Unit 112 at 9 West Broadway in South Boston is another $3,250/month apartment that includes one parking space. The 1,191-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom also includes 11-foot ceilings and access to a heated lap pool.
