Beeline -- a nice compendium of varied projects [in your last few posts under this thread] -- most of which look like they are a positive change to the neighborhood

Re: the layout of 480 W Broadway, these units seem big but will feel like caves unless they have windows facing that round atrium. It's certainly different.

Demo in progress. Looks like they are going to save the old store front.

Irrespective of the aesthetics of this particular one:

Ground-floor garages are despair. Yes...eat the person-to-person interface with the street everywhere so man can move from enclosed pod to enclosed pod in isolation. Truly that is our urban fabric, no?
:cry:

Better than the resident possibly using a space saver on the street though.

Question for folks who well know Southie.
Is there such quantity of land, that allows for these improvement/s to continue out a few more years?

It's not really a question of land. It's a question of property for sale and redevelopment. In other words, if the real estate economy continues to chug along, there will continue to be redevelopment in Southie.

You still have a lot of older long-time homeowners who are aging out and will eventually either sell and move or, sadly, pass on and their kids will sell. I know this because my now-retired parents are in that group and they're certainly not alone in that. Right now the development is mainly along West Broadway and to the north of East Broadway, but give it time and it will filter south. It won't be larger developments but will continue to be the triple-decker replacements.

Also, there's still a lot of places like this, this and this that, at some point, the owners will realize they have more value as real estate than as garages.
