Is Dorchester the next Southie?

Tweet Scott has the housing stats that show Dorchester, which is really a series of neighborhoods within a neighborhood, may well be on its way to becoming the next South Boston in terms of professionals flooding into the area (or the next Jamaica Plain, if you prefer that comparison). There are indeed some incredible, way […]

A truly dumb condo rule — and a truly dumb condo fight

Tweet The Herald is doing what it does best: Stirring up a controversy over a Fort Point condo-association controversy involving a guy hanging the American flag in his unit’s front window, despite a condo-association rule that says all window curtains must be white. One is tempted to dismiss the Herald story and the entire matter. […]

How the game is played in Boston

Tweet Two developers. Two Jamaica Plain apartment projects. Two controversies. And then suddenly … campaign contributions! Guess who got their way: The developers or the neighbors? This is not a trick question. This isn’t hard. Hint: This is Boston. File under: Game rules

‘City sponsored tree vandalism’

Tweet Via Adam Gaffin’s Universal Hub, a concerned citizen catches the city strangling a recently planted sidewalk tree with plastic ties for a parking-ban sign. Asks the accompanying photo’s poster: “If if left the way they are they will literally choke the tree and kill it, losing how many hundreds of dollars per tree? this […]

Kiplinger’s Names Boston one of best cities for young adults (meaning, 20-24 year olds)

Tweet Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has released its list of the best cities for young adults, professionals, families, second acts (empty-nesters) and retirees.

A full 21 units are described as “an additional phase” not added to the development and require interior buildout. Still, the development includes 22 finished units to go on the […]

The Local Trick-or-Treating Index

Tweet Cambridge real estate agent Liz Bolton politely objects to real estate tracker’s methodology for determining the best candy-rich Halloween towns. Of course density of homes matter, she says. But she adds: “Aim for the neighborhoods with lots of decorations outside – spider webs, door decals, etc. – those will be your Halloween hotspots.” […]

The New Old Colony

Tweet The feds have earmarked $22 million for a complete “green” makeover of Southie’s historic Old Colony housing project. Because the money is from the economic stimulus package, one would assume it’s on a construction fast-track. The story says displaced residents will be found new housing during each phase of construction. But where will they […]
