The city gave the final official greenlight to The Kensington, a $172 million 27-story apartment development at the corner of Washington and LaGrange streets (the edge of Chinatown — kinda). News first broke last fall that the long-delayed project was being put back on the front burner. The development will call for 385 units, but only 110 parking spaces, and ground floor retail space as well. The developer is ponying up $7.4 million for an affordable assisted living community in Chinatown too. We’re guessing that donation pretty much helped clear any neighborhood and city hurdles. It certainly seems generous.
