The 1,310-square-foot Unit 146 at 111 Perkins Street is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom corner unit asking $699,000. It’s on the 14th-floor of a building with amenities such as a 24-hour door staff and an in-ground pool. The HOA fee is $1,846. Note though: 111 Perkins is a co-op, so taxes are paid monthly and are included in that HOA fee.
