Roxbury's $300M Tremont Crossing; Biolab Still Bugs South End

ROXBURY—A 1 million-square-foot development called Tremont Crossing has been proposed for the 8-acre parcel bounded by Whittier, Tremont and Downing streets: "If approved by the city, the $300 million project would include 500,000 square feet of retail with smaller shops and boutiques along Tremont Street, 200,000 square feet of office space, an 11-story apartment building with 240 units, and a new museum for the National Center for Afro-American Artists. The development will also include a large public plaza and a multi-level parking garage with 1,700 spaces." [Biz Journal]

SOUTH END—The National Institute of Health has held one last public meeting re: letting the B.U. biolab on Albany Street test more lethal diseases: "Among those lodging comments were politicians, attorneys and residents, as well as four B.U. students and one B.U. professor. 'Residents–speak up, speak out. Let them know that this is not fair and that we don’t want this thing in our community,' said Klare Allen, a community organizer with Safety Net. 'They have not proved that it is safe for it to be in our community and we will not stand for it to be in our community.'" [Free Press]
