I'm also happy to be getting a crosswalk at Franklin (badly needed) and a chunk of Cobble Hill's useless no-trespassing-signed green space opened up to public use.

Edit: And a sidewalk down New Washington! I'll actually be able to walk the kids to see the dogs without dodging trucks from the light industrial down the street.
And, if the Friends of the Mystic to the Charles Connector have their way, we'll also be getting a grade-separated bike path along New Washington, from the three-new-developments at Sullivan all the way to Brickbottom and beyond. They have a little information on their website here: https://mystictocharles.weebly.com/

Somerville Ave apartments, level 4 framing. I think there’s to be a 5th level identical to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, and then a final 6th that is set back. Also, I like how it is beginning to further contain/enclose Bow Market.

I think this may be one of the more interesting new develops in the sq! A nod to history/place and an example of cutting edge passive house tech.

Thunder Road site…finally they put some excavators to work clearing out the bricks and whatnot from the foundation. Maybe some actually construction will begin soon?
