Residents of the Southwest Corridor Annex cherish their “border guard” status which affords them equally convenient access to the big city feel of the Back Bay and the neighborhood charm of the South End. This micro neighborhood is tucked in subtley alongside the origin of its namesake public park, the Southwest Corridor Park – a 4.1 mile greenway, stretching from Back Bay Station all the way out to Jamaica Plain’s Forest Hills station. This linear park features many different activities and facilities along the way and is a terrific commuting corridor for many bicyclists.
The Southwest Corridor Annex includes Yarmouth, West Canton, Holyoke, and Braddock Park. A unique micro-corridor, this narrow neighborhood is tucked alongside the Southwest Corridor Park. The Prudential Center lies within walking distance of this attractive, accessible corner of Boston while the center of the South End commercial universe, Tremont Street, is only a few short blocks the other direction.
Like most neighborhoods around the city, the Southwest Corridor Annex has appreciated in recent years. To close out 2021, the Southwest Corridor Annex saw 2 sales over $2M: a big single family at 26 Holyoke Street and a triplex condo at 18 Yarmouth Street, 1 which contributed $10,100,000 to the sales volume of the South End. A heavily contested bidding war drove the final sales price $200,000 above the asking price at 18 Yarmouth. This sale for a lower triplex condominium registered at $1,308/SF while the single family sale on Holyoke scored $1,326/SF.
