Two Apartment Projects Move Forward: Olmsted Place, Pier 4

JAMAICA PLAIN—The controversial replacement for the old Home for Little Wanderers has garnered its final O.K. from the city: "Boston Residential Group plans to build a four- and five-story building called Olmsted Place on a 3.5-acre site at 161 South Huntington Ave. with apartments ranging in size from studios to three-bedrooms, and a garage with 147 parking spaces and another nine at-grade spots. There will also be Zipcar service on site and the developer will build a new shelter at a nearby stop for the MBTA's Route 39 bus." []
SOUTH BOSTON—The 369-unit Pier 4 has gotten under way (there will be an official groundbreaking on Friday): "Houston-based Hanover Co.'s development will be one of the largest residential developments in the Seaport District, measuring over 400,000 square feet with 10,800 square feet of retail at the base of the tower at Seaport Boulevard and Northern Avenue."
