Parking lot to be turned into 44 condos along Greenway

Here’s a simple use of a small amount of space: A parking lot in the Broad and India street areas, along the Greenway, would be turned into 44 condos (not apartments) by Boston Residential Development. At a total project cost of $40 million, it’s safe to say the condos most definitely will fall into… Continue reading

East Boston industrial building to be turned into apartments

When was the last time you saw a 1.32-acre site in downtown Boston purchased for $1.5 million? Answer: You haven’t. But it’s possible in East Boston, where the Neighborhood of Affordable Housing has plans to turn an old industrial building into more than 50 affordable apartment units. It’s more proof that we need… Continue reading

Major Developers: Affordable homes can only be built outside downtown Boston

Some major Boston developers — John Hynes, Thomas O’Brien and Richard Galvin — state the obvious: The high price of land in downtown Boston absolutely precludes building truly affordable housing there. So the affordable-housing solution, they agree, is to build elsewhere in the city, where property is cheaper and where city-owned land might be exploited […]

Photos of Ink Block construction project on Harrison Avenue

We were down in the Sound End area over the weekend and decided to take some photos of the massive construction projects that are now transforming the area along and around Harrison Avenue. Today’s photos are of the Ink Block mixed-used development, overseen by National Development, now under construction at the old Boston Herald site […]

‘Manufactured homes’ may be key to affordable housing in Mass.

The Globe has an editorial calling for the Walsh administration to re-think construction codes and other city ordinances in order to make it easier to build more affordable “manufactured” homes in Boston. It’s a long over-due idea and suggestion that applies to all of Massachusetts, not just Boston. First of all, many people need to […]

Blackstone sells off Boston office towers for $2.1 billion

OK, this isn’t residential news. But it’s huge commercial real estate news in Boston: Blackstone is selling off more than 3 million square feet of its office holdings in Boston for $2.1 billion. We’re talking about 100 High Street, 125 Summer Street, 60 State Street, 225 Franklin Street and half of Rowe’s Wharf. Is there […]

Much of Boston’s housing boom is fueled by foreign investors

Here’s an article that rightly notes how many of the Boston area’s home sales these days are by foreign buyers from China, France, India, Israel and other nations — and they often pay in cash. Some of it is driven by attractive exchange rates, good investment opportunities and just an old-fashioned desire or need to […]

East Boston leads state in first-quarter housing market performance

The BBJ has excellent rankings of how the housing markets performed in the first quarter in towns and neighborhoods in Massachusetts. At the very top of the list is East Boston, where prices have soared by 15.6 percent over the past year. The No. 2 spot went to the town of Sharon, which was recently […]

Boston landlords not happy with energy-audit plan

Mayor Walsh is apparently pushing for a compromise 120-day delay in implementing a new program requiring energy audits of large apartment buildings in Boston. The Greater Boston Real Estate Board wants a full-year delay – and isn’t happy with just a 120-day delay. Actually, it’s safe to say the board, which represents apartment owners… Continue reading

Are re-zoning changes coming to your Boston neighborhood?

Mayor Walsh plans to announce today the creation of a new “zoning czar” position as part of an overall effort to re-zone parts of the city to make them more business friendly. It’s probably a good idea. Mayor Walsh seems really eager to bring more business to Boston — and that’s very welcome. But, hopefully… […]
