There are quite a few holes in the street wall along Dudley street by Nubian Square that make Dudley st feel very disconnected from the Square. I think something next to Hibernian Hall would really help work to make it feel like a continuous business district.

LOI for new FW Webb facility:


There are some nice brick buildings on that site in theory, but it looks pretty blighted, so probably a new plus. I hope they do something nice for the neighbors on Yeoman.

If I'm remembering correctly, there was plan floated a few years ago for a biotech / lab development on that lot, and the property owner was looking for tenants to sign on.

I guess this shows that labs don't work everywhere, even in 2021.

Uh... how do you think this one works? Each unit has two corners?
Yes, it looks like there are four, 2 floor units at each corner of the building, each with a front door and a back exit, and basement garage. All without looking boringly "contemporary." Brilliant!

Bout time.
Not going to say “All Buildings Matter” but rather “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats”.

It’s not good enough that these Roxbury developments are now clearing a crappy low bar (Kenmore). The goal is that Roxbury’s new architecture is clearing a high quality bar. And THAT would be “about time”. I look forward to more and better (and better transpo serving the area) 👍

Id say the recent nubian proposals clear that bar, lets hope they get built.

This must've gone up in record time, given the google streetview shot below was taken just 9 months ago!
