This year, four of Boston's 30 highest-priced units can be found at 45 Province St., each selling for about $4 million or more.
45 Province is 90 percent sold at prices that suggest the pent-up aspirations of the neighborhood may not be so farfetched.
Renewed activity in Downtown Crossing, particularly the revival of the Filene's project, has added to buyers' confidence.
The average sales price in Downtown Crossing has exceeded the Back Bay's by about $100,000, according to Boston-based firm Otis & Ahearn.
The district used to be the premier shopping destination for Boston, but has struggled to maintain its vitality.
"That neighborhood has finally gotten some traction," said Diane Valle, the owner of Boston Portfolio Properties.
