Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Next up is $700,000 in five different Boston neighborhoods.
This 606-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom is part of the conversion of the old Broadway Theatre at 420 West Broadway into 42 condos. The project is supposed to wrap this spring. Unit 501 here is $699,900, with an HOA fee of $232. A garage parking spot is included.
Unit 1106 at 170 Tremont Street comes with one bedroom and one bathroom within its 622 square feet. The building has a 24-7 concierge as well as a fitness center, and there’s in-unit laundry too. The asking is $699,900, and the HOA is $394. A parking space is available separately for $70,000.
The two-level Unit 1 at 408 Columbus Avenue runs to 694 square feet, and includes one bathroom and one bedroom. There’s in-unit laundry too. The asking is $699,000, and the HOA is $172.
The 4,000-square-foot, four-level house at 49 Waverly Street includes five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It comes with a fenced-in backyard and a deck as well. The asking is $699,000.
