Not long ago, all of the remaining developer units at the Macallen were removed from the Boston MLS and LINK systems. The sales staff at the Macallen continues to show units via direct appointments, but does not currently appear to be soliciting sales via the broker community. In light of this current, and more than likely temporary, situation there is only a single unit listed for sale at the Macallen Building via the MLS systems of Boston, and it just underwent a significant price reduction, making it the most attractive (figuratively and literally) condo in the 140-unit development.
Unit 206 is an 801 square foot south-facing unit on the 5th floor that is currently configured with a sleeping alcove, but could easily be converted into a true one-bedroom. The Macallen Building, and its sister development, Court Square Press, are stacked with amenities, and given the economies of scale with the two buildings, access to these amenities is kept reasonably low with a $396 monthly HOA fee. Originally listed at $448,800, the Seller recently reduced their asking price to $419,900.
The first open house at this new price point will take place Sunday, January 18, 2009 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
