The full-second-floor combo unit at 165 Charles Street, the last tower of Meierville, has proven a bit too rich for buyers' blood: despite the opportunity to hobnob with boldface name neighbors, no one's picked it up at either the original ask of $14 million or the slightly higher current ask of $14.5 million. Seller and starchitecture fan Michael Holtz's latest tactic: offering a slimmed-down version. That's two of Holtz's four apartments, not yet combined, for a potential 2,500-square-foot 3BR, 3BA and an ask of $6.8 million. Holtz paid a total of $9.9 million for all four of his 165 Charles apartments between 2005 and 2008, so we're not losing sleep over the sluggish pace of this resale.
