Jamie's South End Series: Pilot Block
Pilot Block area is an underrated gem when it comes to residential areas in the South End. This neighborhood claims to be the oldest neighborhood association in the South End. While I’m not sure if that’s true, I do love the easy access to public green spaces and charming boutiques that created the perfect environment for high end real estate!
Pilot Block includes lower West Canton Street along with West Newton, Pembroke, West Brookline, and Warren Avenue. The neighborhood’s residents enjoy easy access to Dartmouth Square, James Hayes Park, and Harriet Tubman Square.
Three parallel streets within the Pilot Block control the majority of the housing inventory in this sub neighborhood. West Canton, West Brookline and Pembroke Streets all command premium pricing for real estate sales. A particularly enticing row of houses on West Canton Street backs up to a “secret garden” known as Montgomery Park.
Measured by dollar volume, Pilot Block totaled $80M in 2022, second only to Eight Streets this year when comparing South End sales volume. The top sale in this area was a single family at 146 W Canton Street trading for $5,150,000, 15% off its original asking price of $6M.
We believe when real estate consumers are presented with a complete and robust spread of data, in conjunction with their personal preferences, decisions can be reached with the most confidence.
