Boston Proper: Home to Millionaires

Boston luxury condos

Boston luxury condos

With all these Boston luxury condos being built, you may ask who’s able to afford to buy them? According to a recent article in the Boston Courant (sorry no link)  Boston proper area has close to 10,000 millionaires.  The data was collected by Act One Lists,  which organized its data via Boston zip code.

Not surprisingly, Back Bay’s zip code of 02116 was number one on the list with 3,421 millionaire households. The Boston South End, zip code 02118 had 1,722. Beacon Hill came in third with 031 millionaires.

The Boston proper area code of 02111, which encompasses Boston Common, Boston Midtown and Chinatown consisted of 548 millionaires, this zip code included Boston luxury condo buildings such as: Ritz-Carlton, Parkside, Tremont-on-the-Common and the Millennium.

According to the Boston Courant:

“Most of the downtown zip codes that encompass the Financial District and the Boston Waterfront have over 500 millionaires each, with every area featuring at least one luxury condo high-rise.”

Boston Condo Developers find that buyers are willing to overlook

Boston condos

Boston condos

If you can’t have location, then you need luxury or coolness, I think. The “It” factor.

Location isn’t always everything. Creative developers bring upmarket homes to surprising places, and they’re selling.

The market is strong for properties that abut structures once considered deal breakers. With demand high and space at a premium, paying luxury prices doesn’t guarantee a tony location, free from the urban fixtures like airports and highways that buyers typically shun. But those who value the vitality of city life are transforming the market’s definition of what constitutes a desirable location.

Meredith Baumann, a spokeswoman for the Boston Redevelopment Authority, said developers who have recognized that demand are finding ways to make overlooked locations winners.

“It’s a function of the market,” said Baumann. “As people are understanding the need for more housing in they city they become more creative.”
