Re: Newton Developments

Mayor Fuller's RFP for moving/redeveloping the Police Headquarters in West Newton drew - drumroll - ONE RESPONSE! FROM ROBERT KORFF! Not what she was hoping for, but exactly what we should have expected.

Anyway, here's the proposal.

We'll all enjoy debating this for the next 5-10 years.

Re: Newton Developments

85 units, lowball land offer. Sounds fine.

"Hello Washington Street" conceptual presentation. I'm really liking this guy - he seems genuine and local while still discussing increases of density as desirable. He also does a nice thing by not making any concept drawings "ugly". The assumption is that any of these would look nice, but what do you really want to live with?

The focus on a few key locations that everyone considers unattractive and/or underdeveloped is a good move, too. Takes the focus off of the areas right around peoples homes.

Re: Newton Developments

How often does the train go by?*

But seriously, nice infill and this will contribute even more to Union Street's already-lively restaurant scene.

Not that I ever thought this would be happening, but I would always theorize an apartment building in this exact location when I sat in traffic next to it every night a few years ago.
