NEREJ- Boston, MA Linear Retail Properties, LLC, has purchased 62-66 Charles St., a 3,246 s/f single-story retail building located in the heart of the historic Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. The purchase price was $4.1 million.
The building is located at the signalized intersection of Charles St. and Mt. Vernon St., locally known as the “Flat of the Hill” of Beacon Hill.

Sixty-two Charles St. marks our 8th property purchase in the city of Boston but our first in Beacon Hill. Our acquisition activity is on the rise again and we are excited about making many more purchases in 2011.”
