Should be an improvement over the sad looking church that was there before.

Thanks for the photos.

I wish I had Boston's undersized shitty vinyl shutter franchise.

Re: South End Construction

^LOL! The Curbed writer laments the loss of "one of the neighborhood's final freestanding retail buildings", a.k.a. a single-story commercial building, as if it's somehow a bad thing, describing the news as bittersweet.

I think this is going to be great addition to this stretch of Tremont.

Re: South End Construction

I NEVER saw that Dutch Candy Shoppe open. And I lived up the street.

Re: South End Construction

I believe it was a front for something else.

Much like overabundance of nail salons in certain neighborhoods offering massage therapy.

Many long derelict buildings and businesses in the South End are results of shady activity tying up the sale or leasing of the property.

Re: South End Construction

It's no front for anything. It's owned by Jack, the salty bartender who also owns The Eagle, next door. He ran the candy/antiques store during the day and closed out the Eagle at night.

Re: South End Construction

I do not recall seeing the place "open" since the late 90s.

Re: South End Construction

I stopped in there earlier this year for the first time. It was a bizarre experience. Jars of candy and a lot of old stuff piled up everywhere. My reaction was "I'm sure the candy's not as old as the random crap, but it certainly doesn't feel that way."

Re: South End Construction

Good riddance.

Too bad the way too large community garden that occupies half that block (and a long, long stretch of Berkeley St) will continue the serious interruption of the streetscape here in perpetuity.

Re: South End Construction

I don't think the community garden is all that bad.

The highway-esque treatment to Berkeley Street between Tremont and Washington, Castle Square, and the useless triangular grassy patch adjacent to the Franklin Institute are the big offenders here.
