this project was initially mention on here about three years ago. It took a while to get in the ground.
Yep, the clean up of the soil took forever and the cement foundation also took forever. Now with the wood framing things are going quickly.

Holy crap idk how I missed this. 692 apartments in Chelsea... This is exactly what we should be building, awesome.
Editorial comment -- accidentally jumped back a couple of months -- But the original comment by Stick is so good -- it needs to be resurrected

Stick -- to paraphrase the long-lost Ev Dirksen {Senator from IL} -- "400 apartments here; 700 condos there -- pretty soon you're talking real housing"

Theres a few places kicking around with lots of room that can fit huge amounts of housing like this, but it seems they always build far less. Thats why this is such a pleasant surprise.

The area I think of most is both sides of melnea cass by bmc, thats a huge amount of open space directly on the exploding corridors of albany, harrison, washington. Theres also a 26-ish story tower right there. They could fit like 12 26 story towers there... which they never would, but just goes to show it has huge potential. Also the future potential of hopefully a subway or street car line passing down this corridor serving ink block, flower exchange, bmc, whatevers built here.. etc down to dudley sq. Lots of potential in the city still to make huge dents in the housing requirements.

They did that in the 1950's. It's called the Cathedral Projects.

Funny how these are not labeled as "luxury apartments" but look like every other 1+5 being built right now that are luxury

Luxury isn't about the quality of the building but how many extra amenities they provide to justify the ridiculous extra rent.
