Dueling condo buildings

It's a condo cat fight on the South Boston waterfront!

881 E. First St. doesn't like 9 W. Broadway:

... If you like Ct. Sq. Press/ 9 West Broadway but don't like the high price (or paying for a big advertising budget), the high common fees (& paying for a concierge you might never need or use), having to ante up $38K for parking (& having to wait going years to get it) and want a loft that is really in the Seaport (and not at the end of West Broadway's less than desirable neighborhood), then come visit us at 881. We're cooler. They're not and we know it! ...

9 W. Broadway (in the form of bloggin' Realtor John, who lives there), returns fire:

... Our condo fees are higher than the typical South End / South Boston condos, because our fees include the concierge, daily common area cleaning and trash removal, maintenance of a landscaped courtyard, and a fitness center. Plus, the fees cover most of our heat and hot water charges (and covers the cost of natural gas for cooking).

"West Broadway's less than desirable neighborhood"? Um, this is the neighborhood that the Boston Globe called "Boston's hottest". Your building is in a neighborhood ripe for what they used to call "urban renewal".

Wait, you didn't hear what I just said? That's because there are planes landing less than a 1/4 of a mile from your building, and they are reversing their engines as they land from 5:30 AM to midnight, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. ...


Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


I just found that today too. LOVE IT. When does the annual football rivalry start?

I thought I deleted that post!!! I added it last night around 1:30 AM in a sudafed-induced state of euphoria, then I thought better of it, and deleted it, this morning around 7:30 AM, or at least I thought I did.

I don't want those condo owners to jump on me, or call the Realtor board demanding I lose my license (although I can't imagine what reasoning they would use).

So, read and enjoy. For now.

Please keep it around. If you do delete it, I may consider resposting it myself.
