There is a lot of potential for adjacent areas, too, if this style continues. South Bay could open up thousands of new residences.This seems impressively urban (narrow streets, reasonable job hiding parking) for an area that was previously 100% auto oriented. Hopefully more projects are on the way
Are we looking at the same photos?There are literally zero people in the last of Beeline's photos. Where is everyone!?
Gotta push back just a but. I think Home Depot and Target (maybe Stop and Shop) should be left mostly untouched, or else a bunch of people from surrounding (poorer) neighborhoods are going to get deprived of a relatively convenient place to shop for large items that is car convenient. I don’t envy anyone trying to lug a TV or home supplies up into a parking garage.This is coming out great. Its still a bit awkward, but only because of what they had to work with, not whats been built now. I think if successful (spoiler it will be) they need to commit fully. Replace the enormous parking lots with a garage or 2, buy up some lots on Boston st, bring it over to Mass ave, demo the stuff next to transit and do a “city target” like fenway integrated into lots more housing, connect the street grid from mass ave to southampton and all in between, big things can happen here. For now its a nice start for sure though.
