You know, I don't know how wise it is for a developer to build more commercial in Boston right now, especially to appease NIMBYs. There's demand for it now but there's an imbalance between commercial and residential and an expected downturn will likely hit commercial space much harder. There's too much pent up demand for residential to be hit too hard.I'm guessing this doesn't bode well for anyone expecting anything more than cheap builds and high prices.
Wow.. so I wonder how this would work. It specifies neighborhood residents here and not everyone (discounted or lower flat rates in garages for everyone during nights and weekends are fairly typical). If true as stated, then I'm honestly pretty surprised that the residents were able to get this perk.
Why do NIMBYs like commercial and not residential anyways? It makes traffic worse ffs. Like they've never heard of commuters, especially in a city with vastly inadequate housing.
