So much for ‘compromise’ on the massive Garden development

Earlier this fall, Mayor Menino all but ordered the developers of the TD Garden project to compromise and lower the height of one of the planned 600-foot towers within the $1 billion mix-used project. That was then. This is now. There is no height compromise, as far as we can see. The developers, Boston Properties [...]

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.

North End vocational school conversion plan update

The North Bennet Street School, a private North End vocational school, is scrambling to come up with enough cash and final approvals in order to convert the old BPD and printing buildings into a new venue for its students. The city and the school have agreed to a cross-neighborhood land swap in which the city [...]



AvalonBay boosts number of apartments at planned North Station site

AvalonBay has taken over the development rights next to TD Garden in the North Station area — and they’re planning to dramatically increase the number of apartments there.
