Everyone knows that apartment rents in Boston are scaling ever upward (or so it seems) even amid a historic construction boom. That makes it a boffo time to be a landlord on a small or a large scale. Here, then, is a deep dive into the 10 most expensive apartment buildings on the city's sales market. It's a great snapshot into the aggregate value of Boston apartments circa early 2016 and the belief in their investment potential.
Perhaps a little surprisingly, these buildings are not particularly huge. They instead range from one with 32 mostly 2-BR apartments to a townhouse with but two units, one for the owner and the other for supplemental income. They are also geographically diverse, stretching in a kind of diagonal arc from Roxbury to the North End. Special thanks to Point2 Homes for the data. We start with the most expensive.
