Mission Impossible is possible: Artists buy Fort Point building for $20M

The sun has risen in the west. Hell has frozen over. Pigs are flying. And the non-profit Midway Artist Collective appears to have actually purchased 15 Channel Center in Southie’s Fort Point neighborhood for $20 million, preserving 89 units of affordable housing for artists in the process. Two things appear to have made the once [...]



West Square rentals doing well … so far

The latest new apartment complex in South Boston, the 255-unit West Square, is apparently doing well since it recently began leasing. About 50 units have apparently been rented, with prices ranging from $2,200 for a loft to $3,400 for a two-bedroom apartment. But keep in mind that a total of 1,300 new units are coming [...]



‘Friendly competition’ keeps Seaport rents as high as possible

We had to blink a few times when we read this article in which representatives of major new Seaport apartment towers openly talk about how they’re trying to cooperatively keep rents as high as possible. From the article: Every week the property managers of the big new Hub apartment complexes share information on leases signed, [...]



Another 832 apartments to be built in Seaport

The Berkshire Group confirms that it will start construction next April on the $600 million Seaport Square project, which will include two towers, 832 apartments and 260,000 square feet of retail space. One word: Amazing. Is this city booming or what?



Ah, maybe buying that waterfront property wasn’t such a good idea

It could be soon under water. Well, there’s always Worcester. File under: Lost City of Atlantis



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 [...]



Seaport, Seaport and more Seaport developments

As if there isn’t a lot already happening in the Seaport District (also known as the South Boston Waterfront, Innovation District, Fort Point or any other name you prefer), now comes along two other developments in the booming neighborhood. First, developer Joseph Fallon is poised to build yet a third building on Fan Pier, now [...]



Fidelity movings its HQ from Financial District to Seaport

Fidelity has long had a huge presence in the Seaport/South Boston Waterfront/Innovation District (or whatever you want to call it today). Arguably, Fidelity made the Seaport District, when it gutted and renovated the World Trade Center and moved a bunch of employees there a while back. But it’s still rather surprising to see the company [...]



It had to happen: Developer sues another developer in Seaport

You knew it had to happen sooner or later: One developer is suing another developer over a nearby apartment-building project in the Seaport district (Globe sub. req.). Without getting into the details, let’s just say this appears to be a case of the “old” Boston attitude rearing its head in in the trendiest of “new” [...]



Construction begins on teeny-tiny apartments in Seaport

Gerding Edlen has broken ground on a new 202-unit apartment building on A Street near Fort Point. But they’re not just any apartments. Some of them will be super-duper small, around 400 feet, designed to keep prices down for future Innovation District employees. It’s a great idea and most welcomed. Still, it’s not necessarily a [...]
