Boston rent comparison: What $4,000 a month leases around the city

Including in Back Bay, South Boston, and the South End

Boston is probably one of a handful of American cities where $4,000 a month isn’t that much money to rent a place. What does the hefty sum command as summer slides to fall? Our latest Curbed Comparisons finds out.


↑ The penthouse at 623 Tremont Street in the South End is an upper duplex with central air and in-unit laundry. Its 1,400 square feet include two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.

Unit 2 at 43 Winter Street in downtown runs to 1,435 square feet; and it includes two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The apartment also has central air and laundry.

↑ In South Boston, $4,000 a month lands you Unit 425 at 9 West Broadway, a 1,042-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo for rent. The sum covers one garaged parking space as well as access to the building’s concierge service.

There’s in-unit laundry and central air, too.

Unit 5C at 99-105 Broad Street is on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway near the waterfront. It’s a 1,156-square-foot one-bedroom, two-bathroom with central air and in-unit laundry. The $4,000/month covers the furnishings you see, too.

↑ We end in Back Bay, where Unit 403 at 719 Boylston Street is asking $4,000 a month for its 800 square feet and two bathrooms and two bedrooms. The rent covers central AC and in-unit W/D. This is the smallest of the selection, but the location is prime.
