A portfolio of prime Back Bay properties was purchased just prior to the New Year. ASB Real Estate is paying about $91 million for 333-335, 342 and 352 Newbury St. and nearby 801 Boylston Street, totaling 51,249 square feet, or about $1,780 per square foot.

Facing opposition from nearby residents, Trinity Stuart LLC has unexpectedly yanked its planned 33-story Back Bay tower from immediate consideration until some sort of compromise can be reached.

Technically, it’s called the Mason House, the 11-bedroom townhouse at 211 Commonwealth Avenue now up for sale for $14.99 million (not to be confused with $14.9 million).

No sooner than posting the item below, we picked up a print copy of the Boston Courant with the lead headline: “Fisher Reconsiders Beacon Dorm Plan.” Apparently, the storm of neighborhood controversy has forced the school to reconsider putting new dorms at 115 and 139-141 Beacon Street, each holding 43 beds for students (115 is [...]
The plans by Fisher College to expand its Back Bay/Beacon Hill-flats presence continues to meet opposition. The latest is an online petition that someone recently pointed out to BREB. The deadline for comments on the expansion plan is Aug. 5. Here’s how the Beacon Hill Times recently described Fisher’s plans: The college filed an Institutional [...]
Simon Property Group is proposing an increase in residential units at its planned new tower over Copley Place. The project would now include 433 apartments and 109 condos, up by 224 residential units over previous plans. The total height of the tower will be remain the same, but the number of floors would increase from [...]
The IRS was expecting, or hoping, to get $250,000 in the auctioning off of two tandem parking spaces at 298 Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay. After a bidding war between neighbors, the two spaces went for $560,000, which is considerably higher than the median cost of a home in Massachusetts. Well, at least the [...]
