A major apartment project gets under way today on West Broadway, in South Boston.

From the Herald:

A pair of high-powered local developers, after initially planning high-end condos, has shifted gears and will build 139 apartments on the former Cardinal Cushing High School site …

… The $61 million project, at 50 West Broadway near the Broadway MBTA station, takes shape not far from a pair of expensive condo high-rise projects.

Slated to open in fall 2009, rents at the West Broadway apartment complex will range from $1,800 to $4,000 a month. The development is a joint venture of the Brennan Group and John M. Corcoran & Co.

This area has seen great growth over the past several years. Contrary to what its owners may believe, I have never said anything bad about Court Square Press and the Macallen Building. As a result of those two buildings, other developers have constructed major new projects nearby, including Allele and 36 A.

With the addition of rental housing, the neighborhood will now be appealing (and affordable) to many more Boston residents.
