Macallen is luxury condo building in South Boston
The Macallen Building, where two people were killed Friday night and police were involved in a short gun battle with a suspect, is one of Boston’s newest luxury residential buildings.
The 14-story building at 141 Dorchester Ave., just south of the Broadway MBTA stop, has 140 units. It opened in July 2007.
It features more than 30 different floor plans in its residential units, according to the building’s Facebook page. Condo prices range from $525,000 for a studio to $1.1 million for two bedrooms. Apartments rent for $2,000 monthly for a studio to $5,500 monthly for two bedrooms.
The building has a rooftop swimming pool with what its Facebook page says are unobstructed views.
Police responded to a penthouse unit Friday night where they exchanged gunfire with a man. Bampumim Teixeira, 30, of Chelsea, was wounded and taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said.
Police found the bodies of a man and a woman in their 50s, in the unit.
Police are seeking multiple charges against Teixeira, they said.
