BACK BAY - The Mason House at 211 Commonwealth Avenue chopped its price by $1,000,000—the biggest Boston price-cut of 2013 so far. Still, the mansion, with a new tag of $15,500,000, remains the priciest in the city.
BEACON HILL - What's the ultimate condo amenity in Boston? How's about a guest cottage? This spread at 20 Chestnut Street asking $4,300,000 advertises just that off the garden.
SOUTH END - The developer of 275 Albany Street has scrapped the hotel component of the two-building project. It will now be comprised totally of apartments (as many as 380 total) and retail as well as parking.
FORT POINT - Details are out on the latest developments in the neighborhood—319 A Street and 327-337 Summer Street. They are to be a mix of apartments and office spaces, with many of the apartments bucking the micro trend in Southie.
