Back Bay parking spaces could fetch $250,000 at IRS auction

The IRS is planning later this month to auction off two parking spaces at 298 Commonwealth Ave. in the Back Bay. The two spaces were seized by the federal revenue department from a tax-deliquent owner who owes $969,000 in back taxes. Though bids will start at $40,000 (based on some la-la land formula that obviously [...]



The 20 most valuable homes in Boston

The BBJ has a list the 20 most valuable homes in Boston, based on property-tax assessments. Yes, the BBJ knows full well that assessments aren’t necessarily the best way to measure true value, but, as it explains, it’s still a fun way to analyze the market. Not surprisingly, Beacon Hill and Back Bay dominate the [...]



Another piece of Newbury Street sold off

UrbanMeritage has purchased another property on Newbury Street, this time 205 Newbury Street for $8 million. It previously purchased 79 Newbury Street for $10 million. Now, UrbanMeritage may well be the best landlord on Newbury Street. But think about the numbers: It has an $8 million investment it needs to recoup — and its 205 [...]



‘The 45 best restaurants in America’

Granted, it’s one of those silly ranking lists they seem to always come up with. But having a list of the top 45 restaurants in the country with only one from New England (#26 Fore Street in Portland, Maine) while including the Shake Shack chain in New York? Yikes. These days, we’ll take any restaurant [...]



For all our neighbors and friends, please spend, spend, spend

Back Bay restaurants and stores — as well as other downtown shops and businesses — are really hurting in the wake of last week’s Boston Marathon attack and wild week-long manhunt that culminated in the virtual shutdown of the city’s economy on Friday. So please go out of your way to visit Boston — and [...]



Back Bay fire photos and other tidbits

Our own intrepid BREB roving correspondent snapped the above photo of yesterday’s fire at 182 Beacon. Adam has a lot more photos. Check out the first one. The fire was a lot more serious than the smoke indicated. The Boston Fire Department’s conclusion: “Fire Investigators have determined the cause of the roof deck fire at [...]



Are deeded parking spaces going untaxed in Boston?

A Beacon Hill and Back Bay real estate person brought to our attention an interesting issue that we previously hadn’t been aware of: Deeded parking spaces going untaxed, sometimes for decades, in the city. Most parking spaces are deeded along with the homes that they’re attached to in Boston. So their value is rolled into [...]



And the new owner of the Ames-Webster mansion is …

The mysterious new owner of the giant Ames-Webster mansion at 306 Dartmouth is apparently a Saudi businessmen, according to reports. The $14.5 sale — down from the $23 million asking price three years ago — has been previously reported but it wasn’t clear who exactly was the buyer. It’s still not clear specifically who’s dropping [...]



Back Bay residents gear up to fight Fisher College’s expansion

Fisher College’s recent purchase of 10-11 Arlington Street appears to be the last straw for Back Bay residents, who are now vowing to not only push back against the college but to push the school entirely out of the Back Bay. The college — which now owns a surprisingly large chunk of the Bay Bay [...]



Fisher College buys 10-11 Arlington Street for $11.7 million

Fisher College has purchased some prime real estate across the street from the Public Gardens. Here’s some architectural history on 10-11 Arlington Street and some sales background. From B&T: “Fisher College plans to lease space in the 17,000-square-foot building back to the (nonprofit) Tellus Institute and other nonprofit tenants for another two years and will [...]
