The Amadeus House: Back Bay’s $14.99 million bargain of the week!

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). Still, with the sale being handled by Jonathan Radford at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, maybe the townhouse should just be pitched as the Amadeus House, considering… Continue reading

UPDATE: Fisher College reconsiders Beacon Street dorm plans

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 […]



Online petition started to oppose Fisher College’s expansion plans

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.

Holy mackerel: Two Back Bay parking spaces go for $560,000

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… Continue reading



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… Continue reading | 1 Comment



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… Continue reading



‘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… Continue reading
