This is a big effing deal, folks, because this smooths the way for 636 residential units there!


Massport gets $12 million to allow housing near Conley Terminal haul road​

The deal will enable massive redevelopment of the old Boston Edison plant in South Boston to move forward​

When Massport built a road directly connecting Conley Terminal to Summer Street, they negotiated a deed restriction on the the old Edison power plant next door, preventing housing from being built there. The developer of that site has agreed to pay $12 million to have the restriction lifted.
