Re: East Boston Developments

Foundations are going in where those buildings collapsed on Chelsea St near Maverick Sq and they're making me nervous. They are set way back from the street. It looks like they're putting in some puny little suburban style townhouses.

Re: East Boston Developments

Pretty ugly design akin to some of those in south boston, but maybe a good sign for some positive infill in eastie?

41-43 Saratoga St.

Quote:
Located at 41-43 Saratoga Street in Boston’s East Boston neighborhood, the proposed project seeks to remove two (2) existing residential buildings and a garage at 41-43 Saratoga Street and features the construction of a new four(4) story, 18 unit residential building with on site parking and related improvements in open space, landscaping, and vehicular and pedestrian access to the site (the “Proposed Project”). The Proposed Project will consist of 18 residential rental units with 10 covered parking spaces and a roof deck. The two (2) existing residential buildings and the garage to be removed at the site are in a dilapidated condition and have no historic or architectural significance to the surrounding neighborhood.

The new residential building will be approximately 13,746 square feet of building, with 18 residential rental units on three (3) levels of building above a parking garage. Two (2) of the residential units will be designated affordable. The building will be architecturally designed to complement the neighborhood’s character and unique elements. The trash storage will be located within the parking garage.

Re: East Boston Developments

The existing triple decker has a whole lot more architectural merit then whats replacing it. The other building must be in the back.

Re: East Boston Developments

This is garbage, blessed by the BRA. A portable toilet has more architectural merit.

Re: East Boston Developments

I agree about the comments concerning the design. I'm more just curious if this says anything about the greater development climate in eastie or if it's just trying to sneak in before Menino departs.

Re: East Boston Developments

LOI submitted for 57,000 sq. ft. mixed-use mixed-income "Coppersmith Village" at 75 Border St. and 80 Liverpool St., pretty much right across the street from the recently approved Boston East at 102-148 Border St. The proposal includes 56 rental units (21-1BR, 28-2BR, 8-3BR...although that totals 57 units...) 15 fee simple (home ownership) townhouses, and retail space in the main rental building.

Re: East Boston Developments

TONSSSS of tiny-near-microunit studios... but every unit has a W&D. I guess that's cool.

Also, see page 27 of the PDF. I think there are too many windows???

Re: East Boston Developments

That library looks a lot like like the "innovation center" maybe that should follow the lead of this building and really serve a public good rather than whatever it is supposed to do.

Re: East Boston Developments

Love the row houses, colorful and dynamic. The alleyway between the two sections is going to be a lot of not so lovely asphalt though.

Re: East Boston Developments

Had never heard of this. Sounds great.

The proposed project is comprised of 56 rental apartments, 15 for-sale townhomes, and
approximately 3,000 square of ground floor retail space, planned for a restaurant use.

The housing at Coppersmith Village will be a mix of affordable and market rate units, both rental and ownership: of the 56 apartments, 34 will be available to households at 60% AMI and below; of the 15 townhomes, three will be sold to households at 80% AMI or below. Of the rentals, the remaining 22 units, or 39%, will be market rate; of the townhomes, 12 homes, or 80%, will be market rate. This is a mix the neighborhood favors.

Kent -- surely you jest

Think uber Tobin --that's what it would take to cross the Harbor without impeding ship traffic -- I think that's why we have tunnels going under the harbor

as for the revisionist history -- without Massport there wouldn't be any reason at all to go to East Boston --- its essentially a company town for Logan

I could easily see it becoming a host to a number of consultants and their associated residences -- who want walk to the airport convenience with easy access to downtown Boston
