I saw a deed was recorded today for the parcels at 358-366 Hanover Street, in the North End. This is a five/six-story apartment building facing the Paul Revere Mall and a one-story retail/office shop next-door.

The shop is new (during past 100 years) because on either side the buildings' walls don't have any windows, so something was there, previously.

Obviously, nothing of any height could be put up but something 5-stories might even be of right! But that would be too easy, right?

There's an empty lot behind it, a courtyard apparently, that the Archdiocese owns. That could complicate plans depending on the way the wind blows, by which I mean, depending on the way the sun shines.

it's nice to see good infill.

Most of it is has been very good.

At least they got rid of those ugly concrete lampposts.

Given that we have small infill threads for many distinct neighborhoods and this has evolved into a North End thread, I'm going to rebrand this for Downtown and North End small infill projects. Holla back if you have some strong disagreement.

I really hate that with many park renovations lately the City refuses to put benches in them. I'm guessing they're trying to discourage homeless people, but it seems like a really flawed strategy. People need comfortable places to sit!
