Luxury Condo Auctions – Now The Nouvelle, Then The Esplanade

The Esplanade Condos - 75-83 Cambridge Parkway

The Esplanade Condos - 75-83 Cambridge Parkway

I couldn’t help but think of the Esplanade condos in Cambridge when I read on the front page of today’s Boston Globe about the upcoming auction of condos at the Nouvelle in Natick.

The Nouvelle condominiums are the luxury condos built as part of the reworking of the Natick Mall into a luxury mall, the Natick Collection.  I haven’t visited the mall yet – I just can’t wrap my head around it since the good old Natick Mall (and its next-door neighbor -now gone – the very cool Shopper’s World) was “my mall” when I was a kid. 

Unfortunately for the condo project, the recession, the real estate slow down, and also perhaps the pulling back from conspicuous consumption caused sales to slump. 

Owners who did buy condos at market rates should take heart however. 

The last slow down in real estate, in the early 1990s, also resulted in auctions of luxury condos.  In Cambridge, unsold condominiums at the newly built luxury building, the Esplanade at 75-83 Cambridge Parkway, were sold at auction in 1991. 

It’s always hard for us to imagine what real estate values will be in the future.  I’m sure that early buyers at the Esplanade were distressed when unsold condos were auctioned.  After looking at Esplanade condo values in the years after the auction it would seem that time has healed all wounds.  Recent sales in the building have ranged from $435,000 to $1,940,000.  The condo that sold for almost 2 million dollars had sold in 1991, the year of the auction, for $540,000.  Who would’ve thunk it?!

16 Chauncy Street – Cambridge Condos

Entrance to 16 Chauncy in Cambridge Mass

Entrance to 16 Chauncy in Cambridge Mass

16 Chauncy Street in Cambridge Massachusetts is located just blocks from Harvard Square, close to Lesley College, Harvard University, the Law School and Longy School of Music.

History of 16 Chauncy Street

16 Chauncy Street was built in 1929 as a residential hotel called the Continental Hotel Apartments.  A 1963 Time magazine article about the difficulties facing the hotel industry quoted the Continental’s owner, Chauncey Depew Steele, “‘It’s going to be a survival of the fittest. A lot of old hotels are going to end up as old ladies’ and old men’s homes.””  Instead, the hotel is today a condominium building with 53 condos.

A plaque outside the building commemorates Vladimor Nabokov’s residency in the building. He and his wife lived in Apt. 10 at the Continental Hotel in 1956 while he completed research at Harvard for his translation of Alexander Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin.

16 Chauncy Street Cambridge Condos

There are studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedroom condos in the building. Some units have been renovated over the years, others will be found in close to original condition.  Heat and hot water are included in the condo fee.  Features include:

  • Hardwood floors
  • Fireplaces in some units
  • An elevator
  • A shared patio and large backyard

Units range in size from 199 to 916 square feet.  Recently one-bedrooms have sold in the $330,000s and small studios have sold in the low $200,000s.  Sales price per square foot ranged from $568 to $631.
