1912-Vintage Office in Boston’s Back Bay District Swaps Ownership for $20M

Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty has facilitated the $19.5-million sale of 581 Boylston Street, a 40,000-square-foot, eight-story office building with ground floor retail space in the Back Bay shopping district of Boston, MA.

Todd Glaskin and Gregg Leppo of Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty procured the buyer, a local investor. The seller was a private investor.

“This was a rare opportunity to buy a notable vintage property, The Wesleyan Building, in a Class A location,” said Glaskin. “The Boylston Street property is across the street from Copley Plaza and adjacent to the Boston marathon finish line, and office suites boast incredible views of Copley Square, the Old South Church and the gorgeous Boston Public Library.”

 The Wesleyan Building was constructed in 1912 and renovated in 1987. Typical floor plates are approximately 4,500 square-feet.
