Thanks! Those areas of "missing windows" are actually balconies!!! Cool!! :)
 
I sure hope they plant those street trees - that ground floor +1 is going to be pretty stark without them.
 
A few new developments have taken shape / have frames in my neighborhood.

Side thought, is it kind of cheaping out if this street Geneva St, where the 1st pic is, remains a bumpy dirt road? I would think that takes away from the value of the u/c condos. Maybe a proper street and sidewalk could be made for this small street. Or perhaps residents would prefer it stay that way?

I looked into it and this street is a private way. I assume one of the lots there made a private way and started off selling off lots to build on. It doesn't happen often this close to downtown probably. And it probably isn't in the city's best interest to buy it, given it'd be a small road to maintain.
 
Board defers action on East Boston apartments to ensure beloved bodega's future is assured first

By adamg on Tue, 09/12/2023 - 12:50pm
Rendering of proposed expanded building


“The Zoning Board of Appeal today put off any action on a proposal to add apartments to a building at 6 Brooks St., off Bremen Street in Easton Boston, so that attorneys for the owner and the Delicious Market can work out a lease that will let the bodega stay.

Building owners Tom Walsh and Peter Ryan were seeking board permission to add three stories to the building and a rear extension to increase the number of apartments from three to six.

Their attorney, Jeff Drago, said the owners really want to keep Hector Martinez's market stay, to the point they are willing to offer him rent at roughly half the market rate. Drago said his clients had offered a three-year lease with a possible two-year extension. "We love having Hector in the building, we want him to remain," Walsh said.

But Martinez's attorney, Tony Blaize, said the most recent formal offering was for just a one-year lease. Although the two sides negotiated that up to three years, Blaize said Martinez would prefer a five-year lease with extension clauses; that anything less would not make financial sense.

Nearby residents said they were worried about losing Delicious Market, saying that not only does Martinez stock products from their home countries, he often goes well beyond, for example, by delivering groceries to residents with mobility issues. Some also expressed concern about parking - the building would have none.

Drago said his clients would be more than happy to try to work out a five-year lease; and at one point in the meeting it seemed like the two sides were using the session to negotiate that. Walsh pointed to the building's location, like a 15-second walk from the Airport Blue Line stop, as proof new tenants would not overload the area.

Board member Hansy Better Barraza, however, called for a month delay in a vote on the required variances. She said one of her guiding tenets as a zoning-board member is "development without displacement" and that she was not yet satisfied this particular building could guarantee that.
Other members agreed and the board deferred any action until a meeting on Oct. 17.”

Project at 2 Ford Street and 970 Saratoga Street moves forward to bring new housing to East Boston

4d24ca79-4238-489a-9708-3808bbf9c671


“This project in East Boston sits on two separate parcels of land at 2 Ford Street and 970 Saratoga Street and will consist of two separate four-story, mixed use buildings. The building at 2 Ford Street will contain 27 residential units and retail space, and the building at 970 Saratoga Street will contain 14 residential units and retail space. Seven units will be income-restricted; at least one other will be considered for the City of Boston Voucher Program. The units will be a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom units. The retail space is intended to be tenanted by local residents from the East Boston community. This will be a transit-oriented development, as it is in close proximity to the MBTA Blue line, and will have space for bike parking for residents and visitors”

“East Boston CDC is proposing to remove the existing commercial structure and erect two buildings containing approximately 67,110 square feet. The buildings will be a mixture of 3 and 4 stories, with 3 stories along the residential neighborhood and 4 stories along the side of the property that abuts commercial development. The Homeownership Building will be located in the north side of the site and is proposed to include approximately 22 two- and three-bedroom units. Approximately 22 parking spaces will be located in a ground level garage, with all residential units elevated above the predicted future flood level. Access to the parking garage will be on the west side of the building from Shawsheen Road. The lobby entrance will be on the southern side of the building, adjacent to open space that is centrally located on the site. Dedicated bicycle parking for 24 bikes in the parking garage will be accessible from the open space onsite, as well as from Barnes Avenue. The building is proposed to be approximately 52 feet tall, as measured per the Zoning Code. “

Zoning board approves new floors for East Boston building after getting assurances existing bodega will remain​

brooksstrendering.jpg


“The Zoning Board of Appeal this week approved plans by the owners of 6 Brooks St.in East Boston to add three floors of apartments to the one-story building after they and the owner of the Delicious Market said they'd reached an agreement to have the market stay for at least five years, with an option to extend that for another five years.

Under the approval, owners Tom Walsh and Peter Ryan would add three floors to the building - the top, fourth floor pulled back from the street - to double the number of apartments from the current three to six…”

Three residential buildings approved in East Boston​

“The Zoning Board of Appeal today approved a 41-unit condo building at McKay Place and Maverick Street in Jeffries Point and two apartment building with a total of 41 units at the Orient Heights rotary where Saratoga, Ford and Boardman streets meet.

Developer John Murphy and partners won approval to replace three triple deckers and the little used Progressive Club with 41 condos, of which 7, or 17%, would be sold as affordable. A total of 11 units in the $12-million project would have three bedrooms.

Residents who opposed the project said they were concerned about kindergartners from the neighboring McKay School getting flattened by drivers entering and exiting the building's 35-space garage and by the way one side of already congested McKay Place would be blocked for a year by construction vehicles. Project attorney Derric Smalls said warning lights and alarms would be added to the garage entrance.

City Councilor Erin Murphy (at large) supported the project, citing in part the number of affordable units….”
