From a 2008 article about 285 Columbus we wrote:
According to the Suffolk Deeds website, closings have begun at the new 285 Columbus lofts project, at the corner of Columbus Ave and Clarendon Street, where the South End meets the Back Bay.
According to the sales team, the project is 70% under agreement.
The first closings included condos sold for $955,000 (unit #606) and $855,000 (unit #802). Both appear to be two bed, two bath units, around 1200 – 1300 square feet.
I must say, I am surprised (and impressed) that this project was completed on-time (actually, ahead of schedule?). Just a year ago, there was barely anything going on.
To come: a big new restaurant on the first floor.
And, down the street, work continues on The Bryant, which looks better and better, each day. Three or four bedroom units, $1.5 million and up … I think there’s a lot of pent-up demand for homes this spacious.
There’s a broker’s open house at 285 Columbus this Thursday, 12 – 1:30, btw.
