From the article:

"........saying that even though it would be next to a credit union and across the street from a cemetery, it was simply too large."

Am I missing something here? Is this some sort of bucolic neighborhood with a cemetary and a credit union?????

The blue light poles are the best thing here. The acorn street light in and of itself is fine but it's everywhere and greatly overused. Lighting is one of the cheapest and easiest venues to do something creative with civic design and more of this kind of thing should be officially encouraged.

Embarc tends to post these very early but has anyone heard anything on this? Looks great imo https://embarcdesign.com/project/60-border-st-2/
Oh snap!




I didnt see that coming, thanks for finding it. Thatd be awesome to get some more buildings around the eddy's size. Having just one building all alone on the east boston skyline looks out of place and lonely. It also shows the harbor walk expanding which is a huuge plus.


--Tip for ppl sharing articles, if you want to share a picture/render from an article all you have to do is click copy on the image then post it on here by clicking on the image button up above then pasting in the url box. On a phone you just touch your thumb to the image, then tap copy, then tap paste in the url box. Id imagine some ppl want to post the images but dont want to go thru the hassle of saving, uploading, hosting... etc and dont realize how crazy easy it is with the updated site so figd id explain it.

That's pretty sweet...John McGrail formerly of Mayo Group and now MG2 bought up a ton of land in Eastie. This looks amazing.

This is really good. Theres quite a few buildings going up right now in eastie, cambridge, and southie that are really doing a good job of matching the build quality and style that is expected of high quality brick infill in Boston. Hopefully this is just the beginning of many more to come. Dorchester especially and a few other outer neighborhoods could really use a lot more high quality brick buildings along the main throughfares, way too many triple deckers everywhere.
