This part of Washington st. feels so different now that these two big ones are basically finished. Really has a nice streetwall effect going. The one on the left appears to have a nice brick facade already going up as well.

^ I'll second what Dave said. Really tight streetwall and a surprisingly urban feel.



And then this is Velo down by the Forest Hills station

Yes, quite a bit of change for the good happening between Egleston and Walk Hill. The big gap is on the Southeast side of the street approaching Forest Hills, where there are still a lot of low rises and the MBTA bus yard. I'd like to see that side get filled in at some point, keeping in mind the active uses must be preserved. It won't feel tightly urban until that happens.

Very nice! So, how’s the neighborhood reacting to all these new additions?
