So Many Boston Homes Asking More Than $5M...

View as Map

It's been a long while—since at least before the Great Recession started in 2008—that this many Boston homes have been on the sales market for at least $5,000,000. We're counting 25, in fact, at 18 addresses for our Curbed Boston Mega-Listings Heatmap. Indeed, one-sixth of the total comes at the new-development Chanel No. 6 on Newbury Street; and 10 come via townhouses like 36 Lime Street. Interestingly, too, with one exception, none of these mega-listings appears to be what you'd call a waterfront property. Go figure.
