CBRE New England Sells Fisher College Building in Boston for $22.5 Million


BOSTON– On behalf of Fisher College, CBRE/New England announced the sale of 10-11 Arlington, a historic 21,205 square foot, six-story building located in Boston’s Back Bay abutting Boston’s Public Garden.

The buying entity, 10-11 Arlington LLC, purchased the property for $22.5 million and plans to use it as a family office.

CBRE/New England’s Mark Reardon, Meredith Christensen, Diane Harris, Matthew Furey, Simon J. Butler and Biria St. John represented the seller, Fisher College, which acquired the property in 2013.

“Positioned on one of the most prominent streets in Boston, 10-11 Arlington is one of the last of its kind,” said CBRE/NE’s Christensen. “The historic building, situated in one of Boston’s most iconic neighborhoods with views of the Public Garden, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the buyer.“

The highly desirable Back Bay property boasts spectacular views of the Boston skyline and Public Garden and features unique architectural details such as high ceilings, mansard roofs and original fireplaces. Conveniently situated between Commonwealth Avenue and Marlborough Street, the property is close to all major roadways, multiple MBTA subway, bus and commuter rail stations, Boston Logan International Airport and Amtrak service.

The 19th century property first served as a private residence in 1861, and the building was later converted to commercial use for the Harbridge House, a renowned management consulting firm. Since then, the building has been occupied by the World Affairs Council, the United Nations Information Center, the Tellus Institute and most recently Fisher College.
