Is there a master plan for this area?This is huge and right next to the silver line and new commuter rail station. Look at how much more land is around here. When we have a housing crisis its kind of crazy to see sooooo much open land. Hopefully this development is a catalyst for the area.
Many of the surrounding towns and cities have huge open areas like this too like Lynn, Malden, Medford, Quincy, Readville...etc. Hopefully the luxury component is filled up now and the middle class is boom #2. The metro area as a whole would benefit greatly from better streetwalls, more urbanity, and the middle class being able to find housing. Seeing this much open land around not 1 but 2 transit stops is ridiculous.

That's a short-term problem and they're not building anything in the short-term anyway. I highly doubt that there's a COVID-hangover for hot-spots once the virus gets under control.Given all the local and national publicity about Chelsea being perhaps the hottest hot spot for COVID 19 I am wondering about the viability of new market rate housing development in the city.
