A group that includes apartment developers Fred Starikov and Steve Whalen of City Realty yesterday bought the buildings housing Mary Ann's on Beacon Street in Cleveland Circle, the Tam on Tremont Street in the Theater District and the Beacon Hill Pub on Charles Street.
Records on file at the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds, which John Keith found while rummaging around yesterday, show Starikov, Whalen and the other investors in a new company called Greater Boston Bar Co. bought the buildings from longtime local bar owner Barry Bornstein.
The group paid $1.51 million for Mary Ann's building, which BC students have flocked to for decades. The future of the bar had been in question since January, when owner Stanley Chaban died.
Greater Boston Bar Co. paid $1.6 million for the building that houses the Tam and $5.54 million for the building the Beacon Hill Pub is in.
Other investors in the company include Julius Sokol, William Gateman and Dana Rosenblatt.
