Five Outrageously Expensive Parking Spots You Can Buy Right Now
Care to fork over thousands of dollars for a few a square feet of pavement?
Finding parking in Boston is not just tough, it’s excruciating. Unless you’ve been let in on a secret about hidden gem streets, you can forget about ever successfully discovering an open metered spot. Garage parking is a separate beast—and when you do eventually find a space in a garage, be prepared to drop 50 bucks or more in one day.
The alternative to scouring the city for spots is to buy your own. You’ll just need to fork over tens of thousands of dollars to do it. Ahead, find five pricey parking spots for sale right now.
1. 61 Park Drive, Unit E, Boston
Sure, paying $100,000 for a parking spot errs on the side of insanity, but have you ever tried to snag a space in the Fenway the week of the World Series? This rarely available spot is just across from the Fens and a short walk to Fenway Park. Maybe, just maybe, this one’s worth the $$$.
2. 151 Tremont Street UL259, Boston
This spot across from Boston Common is only $60,000 compared to the Fenway spot’s $100,000. But that’s not because it’s a good deal—the parking space is actually smaller than most at 21 feet long and 78 inches wide. Its listing notes the spot is only suitable for “small cars like a Mini Cooper or small sedan(s).”
3. 0 Bolton Street, South Boston
Situated on the west side of South Boston, this spot for sale is steps from Broadway station, and provides easy access to the highway. If $85,000 is just pocket change to you, consider buying not just the single space, but the whole parking lot—for $1.02 million.
4. 80 Broad Street Parking Easement 52, Boston
Out of all of the outrageously expensive parking spots for sale in Boston, this one is near the top—and for good reason. It’s smack in the middle of the Financial District, offering proximity to the waterfront and the Greenway. The cherry on top? The garage is heated.
5. 25 Savoy Street, South End
The steep price tag on this South End spot pays for not one but two parking spaces in tandem. (Perhaps it’s best suited for two pals, each with $100,000 to spare?) The spaces are located in the Rollins Square Garage, which is steps from SoWa.
