BOSTON (Oct. 21, 2022) – Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty is pleased to announce that it facilitated the sale of 581 Boylston St., a 40,000-plus square-foot, eight-story office building with ground floor retail space positioned on a premier spot in Boston’s high-end Back Bay shopping district. The sales price was $19.5 million.

“This was a rare opportunity to buy a notable vintage property, The Wesleyan Building, in a class A location. The Boylston Street property is across the street from Copley Plaza and adjacent to the Boston marathon finish line,” said Todd Glaskin of Coldwell Banker Commercial Realty. “The office suites boast incredible views of Copley Square, the Old South Church and the gorgeous Boston Public Library. The Copley stop on the MBTA Green Line is steps away. The retail is some of the best in all of Boston.”

The Wesleyan Building, constructed in 1912 and renovated in 1987, offers ground-floor retail space just a short distance from the Boston marathon finish line. Typical floor plates are approximately 4,500 square-feet.

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