    Roslindale Infill and Small Developments

    I emailed BTD asking for a status update. Received the following response this morning: "The City and MBTA are still negotiating and working on a lease for a portion of land that will make up the path. We hope to have more information soon." The project is thankfully not dead. Just...

    MBTA "Transformation" (Green Line, Red Line, & Orange Line Transformation Projects)

    Interestingly, most of the catenary poles still remain. The MBTA (or the City?) took many down on South Huntington, but they still litter the streetscape of Centre and South Streets. Rusting away.

    Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

    Yeah, the City's 2000 Turnpike Report said that air rights should never be granted for Parcel 11, unfortunately. Linked is a snippet of Page 68.

    The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

    I wonder if this is for some fancy stairway access for the penthouse condo to a roof deck?

    Office / R&D | 1380-1420 Boylston Street (Star Market & Gulf) | Fenway

    Thank god this parcel is finally being proposed. The gas station parcel in particular is a dominant eye sore in the area given its prominent placement at the edge of Boylston. Too bad about no residential though.. The LOI does include both the gas station and the supermarket parcels. I know...

    Raffles Boston (40 Trinity Place) | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

    Wow! I had no idea they weighed that much.

    One Mystic | 1 Mystic Avenue | Charlestown

    The DPIR was just posted, dated November 12, 2021: That's the fastest turnaround I've seen. Developer must really be pushing. They compromised on the height and density. Height is down 55 feet to 279 feet. Square footage is down...

    Rise Together Sullivan Square Project | Inner Belt | Charlestown

    Rise Together has acquired a number of properties in and around Sullivan Square. The proposed three phase development seems to include approximately 10 buildings, and according to Rise Together's website, 2,600,000 square feet of development. I believe One Mystic is part of this development...

    Exchange South End ( Boston Flower Exchange) | Albany Street | South End

    A bit of a heated meeting with the Developer and the IAG focused on the proposed access road to 93. Reading (or listening) between the lines, this project has been delayed quite a bit due to politically maneuvering with the City, the State, and Feds, and with abutters- BU and BMC. The IAG was...

    Demolition permit pulled yesterday for a substantial portion of the garage.

    26-28 Chestnut Street | Inner Belt | Somerville

    Big, big money for those parcels! It's directly adjacent to the new community path. I think this is the first proposal for the inner-inner-belt area (no connection to McGrath). Hopefully first of many. Edit: Fixed spelling

    990 American Legion Highway | Hyde Park

    Thank you for submitting a comment regardless. This is a pretty significant developer on a large parcel and shouldn’t be able to skate through the Article 80 process without hearing from us. I think I called the design “horribly suburban” and advocated for increasing density, decreasing parking...

    The Huntington | 252/258/264 Huntington Avenue | Fenway

    According to JDC Demolition's website:
