The Clarendon in Back Bay achieves 100% sold out milestone

The Clarendon becomes Boston’s first sold-out luxury new construction high-rise condominium building

Related Beal announced today that The Clarendon’s highly sought-after residences are 100 percent sold, signaling the most significant marker of success for the property and its renowned development team. This major accomplishment designates The Clarendon as the first luxury new construction high-rise condominium building in Boston to achieve a sold out status, reinforcing its position as a leader in this highly competitive market.

The Clarendon achieved sell-out with the sale of Penthouse 3 for more than $6.2 million. Located on the 33rd floor, Penthouse 3 crowns The Clarendon’s coveted Penthouse Collection, which offers three, full-floor 3,500-square-foot residences, revealing panoramic 360-degree views. Each penthouse offers gracious living spaces that include a great room with wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows, a library, three bedrooms and three full en suite baths plus a powder room, with fireplaces in the great room and master suite. The master suite also includes walk-in closets and an oversized windowed master bath complete with a soaking tub, separate shower and double vanities.

Penthouse 1 at The Clarendon sold in January 2013, achieving a record-breaking price of $1,834 per square foot for a luxury new construction high-rise condominium at that time. In addition, Penthouse 2 sold for $5.9 million in June 2013.

“The sellout of The Clarendon is an extremely significant marker for Related Beal and further evidences the desirability of downtown Boston as a residential location,” said Bruce A. Beal, chairman of Related Beal. “Our accomplishments and success at The Clarendon provide a preview for what the Boston community can expect from Related Beal in the future.”

The property’s value can be seen in the sales data, which consistently increased year-to-year. In January of 2013, Penthouse 1 sold for $6.5 million, an impressive record breaking price of $1,834 per square foot for a luxury new construction high-rise condominium.

“Boston has a highly competitive luxury market and we were thrilled with the response we received at The Clarendon. The sale of all 103 condominiums is a testament to the Related Beal brand and the first class residential property we delivered at this highly desirable location,” said Kimberly Sherman Stamler, senior vice president of Related.

Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the condominium residences, starting on the 15th floor, offer captivating panoramic views of the Charles River, Boston Harbor and the downtown skyline.
