Resale Condos for Sale at D4

After opening to the public in late 2007, the D4 Police Station redevelopment in the heart of the South End now boasts resale condos for sale.  The 25-unit boutique Philippe Starck building is almost sold out, with currently one developer unit remaining for sale.

The resale unit is number 11, listed at $729,000 ($914 per square foot), it is a 798 square foot one-bedroom one-bathroom condo with a small outdoor terrace and a tandem garage parking space in the below grade onsite parking garage.  Condo fees of approximately $651 include heat, hot water, gas, water, sewer, master insurance, security / concierge, elevator, exterior maintenance, landscaping, and snow removal.  Unit 11 is on the second floor of the four D4 condo development,  on the north side, overlooking the one-way Gray Street.

Unit 11 offers essentially all the upgrades you could get in the development, including outdoor space, marble bath and kitchen, high end appliances, and parking, however, the difference in price per square foot of the unit compared to the remaining developer corner unit (number 13, a two-bedroom two-bathroom 1,426 square foot unit priced at $835,000 ($586 per square foot)) is significant.  Also, there’s steep competition in the area given the recent price reductions at 285 Columbus Lofts, where an eighth floor one-bedroom one-bathroom 753 square foot unit is priced at $615,500 ($817 per square foot).

While this D4 resale condo (number 11) is superb (see pictures below), given the plethora of luxury condos in the South End available for sale, it may not be priced competitively to sell, time well tell.

Another Boston South End Condo Auction

Keeping the spirit of Boston condo auctions (see Broadluxe Financial District Condo Auction), a unique situation has popped up in the South End along Warren Avenue. There will be a condo auction this weekend for a single unit at 99 Warren Avenue. Unit 2 at 99 Warren Avenue is currently listed in the Boston MLS for sale, however, the intent is to conduct what looks like a sealed bid auction over the weekend.

99 Warren Avenue Unit 2 is listed on the MLS at $699,000 ($529 per square foot), and is a 1,322 square foot duplex that boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a great roof deck. Additionally, a deeded land-use area that can be used to park a car off-street is included (parking). This is a two-unit HOA under a new conversion, and the HOA fees (which include water, sewer, and master insurance) are estimated at $275.

Minimum bids are starting at $699,000, and the listing agent, Betsy Herald, will be showing the unit today from 4:30 – 6pm, Saturday from 11am – 1pm, and Sunday from 2:30 – 3:45pm. Standard Offer to Purchase forms are being accepted with a $1,000 earnest money deposit. All offers should be submitted by Monday, June 16, 2008 at Noon. For more details, please contact us using the link at the top of this page.

Auction Results: multiple offers were received and the unit, according to the Boston MLS, went Under Agreement on June 18, 2008. For undisclosed reasons, the property was put back on the market on July 14, 2008 at a listing price of $799,000, and then reduced to $769,000 on August 8, 2008, and went Under Agreement on August 20, 2008.





$100K Price Changes at D4 Condos

For a current view of availability at D4, contact us using the link at the top of this page.

Of the seven available D4 condos listed on the Boston MLS, four of them saw $100,000 price changes this week. This is following similar reductions that took place in 2007. This puts some units in the luxury South End development in the $750 per square foot range. One unit, Unit 6, a 2,147 square foot unit is now priced at $558 per square foot, rather unprecedented (note that the removal of parking spaces from some listings (valued at $90K) constitutes the bulk of the current price changes, somewhat skewing the numbers).

Several Price Reductions at D4 Condos

Three of the remaining seven units at the D4 Condo Development in Boston’s South End underwent price reductions this morning. Units include the grand penthouse, moving from $3.2 million down to $2.9 million, Unit 6 (the unit on the far left of the building with the huge windows) moving from $1,385,900 down to $1,299,900, and finally, Unit 1, the corner unit with a private entrance that overlooks both Warren Avenue and Berkeley Street, moving from $1,399,900 down to $1,299,900.

D4 Police Station Condos Featured Open House

As we recently reported the D4 Condos located at 7 Warren Avenue in the South End have received their Certificate of Occupancy, and they are celebrating by holding our Featured Open House of the week.

The D4 team have molded the old and the new, restoring one of the landmark properties of the South End. The former U-shaped police station was fitted with a glass and steel enclosure during redevelopment along Gray Street (picture immediately below), in order to create an enclosed Winter Garden and exquisite lobby area, which will have greenery climbing the walls.

D4 South End Condos

Philippe Starck, and his Yoo Ltd. team, played a critical role in the design of the redevelopment efforts, from the one-way mirrored windows overlooking the courtyard (a play on the police station interrogation room theme) to the sleek and bold interiors.

Eight Seven condos remain for sale at the development ranging in size from 798 to 3,571 square feet, and in price from $669,000 to $3,200,000.

D4, aside from standing for the former District 4 Boston Police Station, means Design, Detail, Drama, and Destination as it relates to the new condo development. The exclusive photos below display the completed redevelopment of the former D4 Police Station on Warren Avenue (the condo development), and the new D4 Police Station on Harrison Avenue (the actual new police station).

The D4 Condo Open House, located at 7 Warren Avenue will take place Sunday, October 14, 2007 from Noon to 4:00 PM. Please let the Listing Agent know that Boston Condo Guy sent you. If you would like Buyer representation on the purchase of one of the 8 7 remaining units, please contact us.

South End Warren Avenue Condos for Sale

You may be familiar with the D4 Police Station condos that anchor the east end of Warren Avenue, but what else is available currently on this peaceful, well-lit, tree-lined street in the South End? In addition to the 8 remaining units at D4, one other Warren Avenue condo is on the market right now: 173 Warren Avenue Unit 3 (see South End Warren Avenue Condos).

A 1,080 square foot three-bedroom one-bath unit, 173 Warren Avenue hit the market in early June for $729,000, has gone through three price reductions, and is now priced at $629,000 – a whopping $100,000 off the original asking price. Priced at $582 per square foot for a sunny duplex in the northern part of the South End, it’s a a fair deal, bordering on quite good given the comparable sales over the past 6 months on Warren Avenue. If it’s so fair, or quite good, why is it still sitting there after its third price reduction? What happens quite often with properties like this, that are overpriced out of the gate, is that they get one look by agents and buyers and are passed over because they are, you guessed it, overpriced, never to be seen again (note to listing agents, oftentimes you only get one chance, don’t blow it).

173 Warren Avenue has southern exposure, and overlooks the private Carlton Park. A bonus (provided by the seller) to any buyer that comes to the table is the selection of new appliances to your preference, if that means a total Bosch kitchen, we don’t know, but, it’s always worth a shot, we’ll write it into an offer for you. To setup a showing (on 173 Warren Avenue, or the D4 Condos), please contact us.
