A reminder of everything that was lost here. This video is a real gut punch. It has probably been posted here before but I 100% recommend a watch if you haven't seen it already.
My father was born in 1946--the flood tide of the boomers--and grew up just a few miles away. He would've loved to have been one of the interviewees for this video, in particular to rhapsodize about the Cyclone coaster. He still lives nearby but of course now there's just the memories & and what use does he have for Kelly's Roast Beef? <none>

NOTE: if the video doesn't mention, Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon grew up in Lynn--yet oddly, his hit song about amusement parks was not about Revere's!

On the western side of the building the color of the siding goes from light yellow in the south to light green on the north end.

Repeating a theme from another thread, wouldn't it be a win-win situation for the developers and the city if there was a shared funding of moving those power lines underground?

This isn't supposed to be Mogadishu.

A couple things about Revere -
Little one: Ryder is getting a restaurant by the owner of Fine Line and Dryft. Surprised they're the only one investing here...

The big one:
HYM came before the commission seeking approval for minor modifications to three proposed buildings, [construction on 1R will start in the second quarter of 2021]. The three buildings are located toward the front of the site bordering Winthrop Ave. and Washburn St. ( Still can't find the actual HYM presentation...)
  1. The first building, listed on the plans as Building R1, will consist of three stories and will have office and retail space. It will be the closest to the Beachmont MBTA station. The final plans for the landscaping were presented and will include a promenade along Winthrop Ave. with trees. It will have both hard and soft surfaces, as well as street lights and furniture. It will include the bicycle path that traverses throughout the development.
  2. The second building, listed as R2, will be a six-story hotel and is located on lot R5, which also will contain several other buildings in the future. This parcel is located across from the present MBTA parking lot on Winthrop Ave. The building is located on the main Road B on the site, which will provide access to Winthrop Ave. This site also will have trees, a bicycle path, and street lighting, as well as street furniture. The traffic light on this road and Winthrop Ave. will be signalized with the MBTA lot.
  3. The last building, R3, will consist of 435 units of studio, single, and two-bedroom apartments and will be eight-to-15 stories tall. There also will be commercial/retail space. Parking will be on the first three floors, and will have 198 parking spaces. There will be an overflow surface lot that will hold another 293 parking spaces. Eventually, a multi-story parking garage will be built on this site. The building will border Washburn Ave.
