Correct it is a temporary fire escape. Phase II is being built where the wooden porches/fire escape is.

It's under construction. I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually nearing completion considering the progress as of July 2017: https://goo.gl/maps/LGuTg75MC7P2

wow!

now, that's a surprise. This entire area could be huge in decades. (with a proper urban ring, that is).

Nevertheless, what an investment and vote of confidence for a very interesting area.

Re: Roxbury Developments

This is located at the "elbow" of Melnea Cass which is quite a prominent location. It's a shame this will never be a better design, the uses dictate a glass box.

Although the problem with the original plan was that MLK was a suburban artery and not a proper boulevard. This is something I wish the city was more forward on; rezoning the old BRA arteries to be more parkway like with new buildings actually fronting the road.
I agree with this and this is a pretty significant flaw with Bostons road layout. Most major roads lead downtown and back or wrap around and go out the other side. Its really hard to get from say Morrissey blvd to Storrow drive. Im not saying just that route specifically, but to get from one side of the city to the other is extremely hard and in many cases impossible without at least partially heading towards downtown at some point. Mass ave is one of the rare roads that does but even then it turns Into Columbia rd. Mass ave also cuts through the back bay so just to even get there can take a while. To get to the other side of the city its usually just easiest to take the highway towards downtown then take whichever highway that will bring you closest to where you need to go.

Options further in like 28 gets you across while also still bringing you closer to the back bay, then it just ends out of nowhere and Columbus ave randomly starts right there to the left of it and it gives you Melnea cass which just loops you back towards 93 or you awkwardly get onto Columbus ave that starts off to your left right there for no reason and then you have to head even further downtown on that until you finally get to Mass ave. Besides that you have like Ruggles where you have to loop around the fens and a couple others. Theres a few streets that head sideways, but they dont do it for long and they’re not connected. Some of them just need some bridges and it will help, a lot have houses in the way. Even the transit does the same thing and there is no outer loop. Everything just leads you downtown. Its basically designed for you to go from your neighborhood to downtown to work, then head back to your neighborhood. We all know that people visit people/places outside their own neighborhood so we just have to put up with going downtown first. I wish there was a solution, but theres really not and we just have to live eith it.
