Back Bay vs Seaport – Less is More in the Seaport

We see the appeal of living in the Seaport. It’s new and vibrant, with good energy, especially during the summer months. But the Seaport isn’t without its critics. The normal knocks include the cold winter winds whipping off the water, rising sea levels, the monotony of the boxy glass architecture, and the lack of an established neighborhood. We continue to struggle with the Seaport value proposition.

100 Beacon Street – Bidding Price War

Unit 1C at 100 Beacon Street, a 1,984 square foot 3 bedroom hit the market last week for $2.95 million ($1,468/sf). Located on the first floor facing the river, the unit has a nice private outdoor terrace. This unit last traded back in 2016 for $3.1 million, so it looks like the seller is motivated.
