Sure, the Boston Redevelopment Authority made headlines this week for pulling the plug on the Filene’s project, but they were also busy handing out permits for other developments. These approvals tend to support the BBJ’s earlier article about the expected boomlet in ground-breaking expected for apartment developments in 2011. As noted in Banker and Tradesman earlier this week, here are some of the approvals.
- $84 million phase two of the Old Colony renovation in S. Boston – 170 units.
- $65 million 100 Arlington Street project, conversion into 128 residential units in Bay Village.
- $45 million 368 Congress Street, a Fort Point Channel mix of retail space with 120-room “extended stay” hotel.
- $23 million Eleven West development in S. Boston – 50 residential units
