You heard it here first (um, yeah, second, I mean). The hottest neighborhood in Boston is now the lower end of South Boston, near the Broadway bridge. Everyone wants to live there.

Another tract of the old South Boston is poised to vanish amid a frenzied condo boom that has developers targeting the neighborhood for high-priced units.
A local developer is looking to turn West Broadway’s Notre Dame Education Center into 127 condos and a 142-car underground garage.
Meanwhile, a pair of turn-of-the-century warehouses in Southie’s industrial Fort Point Channel section may find new life as luxury residences.
The two projects are the latest in a wave of condo development fast reshaping South Boston and transforming the blue-collar stronghold into a magnet for well-off young professionals, real estate experts say.
“It’s very popular with young professionals as a close-in neighborhood where they can get to downtown,” said Kevin Ahearn, a top Hub condo marketeer and expert.
“There is incredible (sales) activity in South Boston,” he said.
In a sign of the times, the once-gritty West Broadway corridor is fast becoming a fashionable address.
