I’m really not sure why this made the press today, considering it had also been announced, back in July, 2007.

w/e – slow news day?

The Asian Community Development Corp. in partnership with New Boston Fund Inc. have filed plans with the Boston Redevelopment Authority to build 325 units of housing in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood.

The partnership, called Parcel 24 LLC, would build 70 affordable rental units and 255 condominiums, 5,500 square feet of commercial space, 6,000 square feet of community space and parking for between 155 and 1199 cars. The project, pending approval by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, would provide 10,000 square feet of open space and connect the Chinatown parcel – bounded by Hudson, Kneeland and Albany streets – to South Station. The developers hope to break ground sometime in 2009 or 2010 on the 456,200 square-foot mixed use project.
