    Because she is now suddenly concerned about her community instead of her bank account.

    ACC/NU Residence Hall | 840 Columbus Ave | Northeastern University

    No. Northeastern has become highly selective in the past decade. The low acceptance rate and high stats of entering students is a major selling point in the current admissions race among colleges. More selective, higher ranking.

    So at Northeastern domestic students are 55.3% people of color and international students are perhaps 90% people of color. So stop the argument that Northeastern is a white school. It appears that Boston politicians are resentful of all the Asian and Asian American students living so close to...

    ACC/NU Residence Hall | 840 Columbus Ave | Northeastern University

    Have you been to Northeastern recently? White students are in the minority. People of color, both US and international, are the majority.

    So with 200 apartments in Lightview that comes to about $6000 tax per apartment per year. That is $500/month tax. With usually 4 students per apartment that is $125 per student/month.

    Also by owning the land Northeastern has the power to require certain things from ACC, such as only renting to Northeastern students (or students at neighboring institutions if needed).

    BU Development Thread

    When the Dental School project was announced many moons ago another project was announced at the same time: an addition to the Questrom building on Bay State Rd. Since then BU built a research building and the data science building is under construction. I can find no reference to the Questrom...

    Northeastern owns the land but ACC owns the buildings. ACC pays full property tax on the building which is passed along to the tenants. Please read the Tremont Crossing thread here on ArchBoston to get up to speed on that defunct project.

    ACC/NU Residence Hall | 840 Columbus Ave | Northeastern University

    Northeastern owns the land under both buildings. Northeastern wants the buildings to be students only. If you had a family would you want to lived in a building that was half undergraduates?? Remember that the HUGE Tremont Crossing site is vacant nearby. It is about six times the size of 840...

    One thing contributing to the high rents for this building and Lightview is that they are privately owned and subject to full Boston property taxes which of course is reflected in the rent.

    I wonder if in the 1960's was Warren Towers a "take-a-risk" design??

    My point is that there would be hundreds more students occupying off campus apartments than now. You are advocating increasing off ca,pus housing in the community.

    And these upper class students would then rent off campus apartments in Mission Hill or Roxbury?

    If Northeastern proposed that the Fenway NIMBY's would be outraged. Yeah, I can see Hemenway and St. Stephen streets lined with high rise dorms but the "community" would never allow it. And some of the NIMBY's would be the same ones opposing 840 Columbus. Not to mention the Democratic...

    I also believe that the proximity to Northeastern got the rebuild of the Whittier projects priority. There are other public housing projects in the city that are in worse condition than Whittier.

    That stretch of Columbus Avenue has been vacant lots and parking lots since at least the 1960's. And before that the north side was railroad yards.

    ['s.QUOTE="shmessy, post: 397770, member: 1319"] The Red-Blue connector has been kicked around for years Uh, decades! Almost as long as the Blue Line extension to Lynn which I remember being proposed in the 1960's.
