'Massive' Fenway Building; Hub Commutes and Home Prices

BACK BAY—First, some of the best damned gingerbread houses in the Hub. [BostInno]

HUB-WIDE—Shocker! Housing prices (as in: things get generally cheaper the farther you get from Boston proper) play a role in Massachusetts residents having a longer average commuting time than residents in 46 other states: "People may choose to live farther from a job if it means being able to afford a home, he said. Generally, housing is more affordable the greater the distance from Boston and inner suburbs where many jobs are concentrated." [Patriot Ledger]

FENWAY—Brigham and Women’s Hospital plans to build another "massive" research building in Fenway: "The plans come just weeks after the hospital said it will move ahead with construction of a 12-story, $450 million clinical and research building near the corner of Brookline Avenue and the Riverway, as well as a $55 million restoration of the grassy common that once graced the entrance to the former Peter Bent Brigham Hospital at 15 Francis St." [Globe]
