That is right friends.  The rumor is out and I personally think it is very close to becomming a reality.  The BRA has approved the designs for a new glass tower that will house a W Hotel and luxury Condominiums.  To say this will enhance W Hotel Bostonthe neighborhood is the understatement of the century.  Just a block away from One Charles and the Boston Common, what some might think is a risk for W/Starwood, in my opinion is a HOME RUN. The Midtown/Theater District transformation is coming to fruition much sooner than most people thought.

Since the building first opened its doors in late 2004 sales at One Charles in Boston, MA have steadily risen.  Units that were originally selling for $550-$650/foot are now fetching upwards of $800.  Units with commanding views are selling between $1,000/ft and $1,400/ft.  All we hear in the media is how slow the real estate market is, but what they leave out is how hot the condo market is (Upcoming blog).
