The Beacon Hill Times is reporting that the BHCA will review a zoning request tonight for a new “Eva’s” eatery at 120 Charles Street, where the proprietor plans to sell “artisanal sandwiches.” Meanwhile, the owner of the Hampshire House plans to unveil at the same meeting a tentative proposal for a new restaurant at 290 [...]
At a Beacon Hill Civic Association meeting last night, residents appeared less hostile to the planned expansion of the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, the BBJ reports.

The BBJ has a list the 20 most valuable homes in Boston, based on property-tax assessments.

The bridge reconstruction is needed and welcome, especially the improved pedestrian and bike pathways across the Longfellow. But let’s hope it doesn’t turn into a protracted construction nightmare like last decade’s T station and [...]
A Beacon Hill and Back Bay real estate person brought to our attention an interesting issue that we previously hadn’t been aware of: Deeded parking spaces going untaxed, sometimes for decades, in the city. Most parking spaces are deeded along with the homes that they’re attached to in Boston. So their value is rolled into [...]
The outdoor advertiser with the big Bacardi’s billboard on Bowdoin Street on Beacon Hill suffered a court setback yesterday. We’d drink to that, but enough with the puns.
