    Suffolk Downs Redevelopment | East Boston

    RE Life Sciences space--be it at Suffolk Downs or anywhere else in Boston--Boston Business Journal had an article about this recently: What lab glut? Boston’s 'only scratching the surface' of biotech demand, panel says I know a lot of it's behind a paywall, but here are a few highlights...

    Allston Green | 24 Linden & 8-20 Pratt Street | Allston

    The operative words here are should be. Alas, students are not a protected class of citizen under housing law, a truth that no shortage of area landlords have exploited for strategic protection of their investment properties. The ban on subletting isn’t unusual, however, I don’t think I’ve ever...

    Crescent Parcel | 1125 Tremont St | Roxbury

    I wasn't sure if this plan was related to the Whittier Choice Neighborhood multi-phase redevelopment (AB page here); however, it indeed looks like these are different parcels. I vaguely remember seeing a plan 5-10 years ago for a placemaking high rise on this corner. (not to be confused with ACC...

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    A handful from this afternoon’s hard hat tour (and booze reception), including One Congress and Sudbury. Most of the pics I captured are of the views, which are incredible. This whole development is so exciting, and in the hands of a development team that has their shit together. Office tower is...

    Clippership Wharf | East Boston

    Incidentally the friend I was with yesterday owns/operates a boardgame cafe out of state. We both peaked into both restaurant spaces’ windows, agreeing a boardgame cafe & bar would be a slam dunk for the larger of the two spaces. The obvious concern—aside from investment capital to buildout such...

    Clippership Wharf | East Boston

    A friend and I picked up Roy’s subs and had lunch at the park here earlier today. It was awesome! Eastie’s come a long way!

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    Yes. Sometimes people drop $100+ for an obstructed view seat at Fenway Park. Sometimes urbanists drop $100+ for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a hard hat tour from the development team of their beloved city's newest landmark skyscraper. 🤷‍♂️

    It's consistent with Everett's recently adopted Riverfront District Master Plan (LARGE FILE SIZE WARNING).

    Seaport Sq. Blocks N & P| 350 & 400 Summer Street | Seaport

    No; from the renderings on page 1, it looks like the beige faux stone will be on the facade side facing Congress Street, and the black precast/alucubond (?) material will be on the perpendicular facades. I’d guess it’s more economical for the mock-up purposes to just combine them on two halves...

    Seaport Neighborhood - Infill and Discussion

    They've been there for years. I believe it was done as a deterrent to organized sports playing on the open field. There's a couple signs flanking both sides of the lawn that basically say "NO FUN ALLOWED."

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    It's the most prominent feature on the skyline for Sumner Tunnel-bound vehicles in East Boston, whether driving south on 1A from the North Shore or--more relevantly--everyone leaving Logan Airport. Although I haven't driven it recently, the same is likely true for US-1 southbound drivers...

    Greystar | 35 Garvey Street | Everett

    Again, the “NEW” Chelsea Station is a 10-minute walk from here. Even so, though, this is still limited on transit access at the current moment. Lenders do not finance multi-family projects based on the transit accessibility of a project 5 years from now—they finance them based on transit...

    Greystar | 35 Garvey Street | Everett

    Extracted from the Project PDF: A few notes: 450 units, scrapped a freestanding garage structure, and developer says near-term execution. This is immediately adjacent to proposed Sky Everett on Spring Street, and provides an activated pedestrian experience/link to Revere Beach...
