What it lacks for creativity in its name it more than makes up for in the character and charms of this central South End area. The physical homes in this area are impressive and, more often than not, offer parking spaces which is rare in the other desirable South End sub- neighborhoods. While predominantly residential, South End South includes more than a handful of restaurants and coffee shops for neighbors to enjoy. Most of these are on Shawmut Ave or Washington Street.
Flanked by Tremont Street, West Springfield Street, Washington Street, and West Haven Street, South End South sits just north of Lower Roxbury, adjacent to the Back Bay Fens, Symphony, and the Museum of Fine Arts. With easy access to 1-90 and 1-93, South End South is ideal for commuters, busy families, and everyone in between.
South End South had 8 sales over $2M in 2021, all together totalling $21,101,000. Half of these sales were on West Concord Street which is a particularly desirable tree-lined street in this sub-neighborhood. The neighborhood’s average price per square foot was $1,092.99/SF, a decrease of 8% from last year. The highest priced sale was 160 West Concord Street, a single family home that closed at $4,100,000 after spending over a year on the active market.
United South End Settlements, an institution with deep history in the neighborhood, will be proceeding with plans to expand and renovate its campus on Rutland Street in 2020. The organization spent much of 2019 wrestling with the community over the sale of their building at 566 Columbus Avenue. It was a relief when the sale went through and will allow them to expand and improve their programming on a special parcel in the middle of South End South. They are a great neighbor for this community.
