Another year, another new apartment complex in Boston.

Cresset Development has purchased a warehouse at 411 D Street and hopes to built 197 new residential units at the site — 26 of which will be smaller “Innovation housing” for the new high-tech area that the mayor envisions.

This proposal kind of slipped under the immediate pre-New Year radar screen. But we’ll count it as a 2012 idea – and a welcome one. The city needs more housing, and we sure seem to be getting more housing these days.
