It is not every week that all of the biggest home sales are in Boston. It is even more rare when three out of the top four sales are in the same building.

The Lucas, at 140 Shawmut Ave., is comprised of 33 units inside a former South End church. This week, three of the units sold for prices ranging from $2,650,000 to $3,250,000.

These condos sold for top dollar, but a Millennium Tower unit that went for $6,500,000 beat them all.
