250 apartments proposed for 250 Everett Street in Lower Allston--great spot for infill, imo!

My only issue would be that this site should be more than a 5-over-1. Certainly good spot for housing, though.

It's a bit of a shame the City didn't do a comprehensive plan for the whole strip between Telford and Everett all the way from Western to N. Beacon (or at least to Guest). You could see a great mall of parkland there through several development parcels, maybe with a dedicated busway and a deck over the Turnpike.

It's great that the industrial strip is headed off for Allston Landing, 176 Lincoln, and hopefully future redevelopments on the Artisans Asylum and Star Market blocks with both tenants getting new space, but that strange strip in the middle of the neighborhood had more potential.
