According to Scott Van Voorhis, as reported in today’s Boston Herald, there are developments a-plenty in the works for the area around North Station.
Delaware North, owner of both the Garden and the Boston Bruins, is seeking a building permit for a 36-story condo tower that would rise next door to the sports arena and the train and commuter hub.
A few blocks away, local builder Trinity Financial has filed plans with City Hall for a 200-unit condo complex in the old Bulfinch triangle on former Central Artery highway land reclaimed with the end of the Big Dig.
Meanwhile, the Pizzuti family, a major owner of land and property near the Garden, has submitted plans for 54 loft-style units in the old Forecaster outdoor wear factory building.
In fact, there will be an estimated 2,000 new units of housing built in the area, over the coming several years.
Of course, not everyone is happy about this, mostly those who already live in the area, who fear the additional congestion caused by 24-hour a day residents.
And, as I mentioned in a previous post (which I can’t find), some owners, specifically those at Strada234, are angry that their unencumbered views of the Zakim Bridge and/or the South Shore will soon go the way of the Central Artery.
