Sometimes you need someone to state the outright obvious in order for something to finally sink in. In downtown Boston’s case, Jennifer Athas has nailed the outright obvious: Boston’s downtown really has emerged of late into a genuine neighborhood. One can argue what exactly constitute’s the city’s “downtown.” But if you narrow it to roughly [...]
It’s still unclear whether Boylston Place, one of the quainter alleyways in Boston, will ultimately be developed. But it looks like Emerson College is not going to be building what it originally wanted at Boylston Place: Emerson College has scrapped plans for a 280-foot dorm building on Boylston Place after residents and the Boston Redevelopment [...]

About half the existing garage — 1,100 spaces on nine levels — [...]
The Boston Redevelopment Authority is apparently not too happy with the new manager’s pace of making upgrades to Fanueil Hall Marketplace. Unfortunately, it seems Ashkenazy Acquisition Group, which spent $136 million two years ago to manage the urban mall, is living up to its name, i.e. it’s been so busy acquiring properties elsewhere around the [...]
The BBJ has a story about the new Kensington apartment project and how its estimated high rents might fare in Boston. Yours truly is prominently mentioned in the story as being among the skeptics who question whether the Hub can support such pricy rents, though I’d more than love to be proven wrong on that [...]
Both the sales and prices of downtown Boston condos soared in the first quarter, with median prices hitting an all-time quarterly high of $537,000, the Globe reports (sub. req.).
