‘Last-minute looting spree’ called off

There we were, all excited to see what brazen, crony, insider development deals the BRA might approve just days before Marty Walsh became mayor. But now the unusual BRA meeting set for next week has been called off. Bummer. From the ever-blunt Herald: An eleventh-hour BRA meeting that was squeezed in four days before Mayor-elect [...]



Give us micro-unit housing or give us death!

There’s a trend in Boston and elsewhere of building smaller housing units (and we’re talking real small, as in 300 square feet) as a way to make more affordable housing available to young workers. Today, the Boston Globe has an editorial calling on the Menino Administration to loosen up when it comes to approving these [...]



Lovejoy Wharf now gets a little tax-break love

The developers of Lovejoy Wharf are getting some city tax breaks to help them proceed with the $230 million project, which includes Converse eventually moving hundreds of employees into the future renovated building. And, boy, does the building need renovation. The tax breaks are expected to offset some of the costs of rebuilding and extending [...]



Boston 2013: It’s going to be an awesome development year

Here’s an excellent overview piece that tracks the 12 largest private developments now under way in Boston as we enter 2013. The numbers are almost staggering: $2.7 billion in construction at 12 locations with the final goal of producing about 2,157 housing units, not to mention all the extra retail, office and lab space included [...]



Construction starts today on Greenway apartment tower

From the Herald: “A development team and city officials today will kick off construction of a 26-story tower with 240 units at 120 Kingston St., site of the Dainty Dot building at the intersection of Chinatown and the Financial and Leather districts.” It looks pretty sharp, and they’re promising an impressive outdoor restaurant scene. The [...]



Don Chiofaro to Mayor Menino: Will you be my friend?

Boston developer Don Chiofaro takes his hat off, bows his head and tells the mayor he’ll be a good boy from now on. And that’s how it works in Boston.



Google funds apartment development in Allston

You read that right: Google is helping to fund an affordable housing project in Allston. At first, we thought there must be some sort of cyber catch — like, perhaps, how Google had discovered a rich vein of rare-earth materials underneath the surface of Allston or how it was building as vast underground communications center [...]



Apartment-retail complex set for North Station area

A Denver company plans to break ground on an 11-story apartment and retail complex right across the street from TD Garden in Boston The development, called The Victor, will include 286 apartment units, high-end restaurants and parking spaces in the Bulfinch Triangle area. Though it’s far from being boom time, there are a number of [...]



Historic Roxbury mansion to get $2.8M rehab

Here’s encouraging news: Historic Boston Inc. is going to restore and then divide up into five housing units the old Kittredge mansion in Roxbury. The Globe has an interesting story this morning on the $2.8 million project. Monday, the non-profit Historic Boston Inc. is holding an open house at the Greek-revival mansion, between 5 and [...]



What’s your view of views? Depends on your view

Here’s a depressing story on how difficult it is to get developments through Boston’s (and the state’s) tortuous zoning, legal and building-permit stages. It’s technically a classic NIMBY tale, but recent court decisions now make a proposed South Boston housing/art studio project a possible test case on whether building opponents can sue, at any time, [...]
