Fan Pier Tower Moving Forward; Apt. Cash From Down Under

SOUTH BOSTON—Developer Joe Fallon tells Greg Turner he's close to picking an architect for his 15-story condo at Fan Pier: “'Our goal is to get the design done and in 2013 we’ll start construction,' Fallon said, adding that he has no worries about selling 150 high-end condos in the next few years. 'The timing actually is right for condos, because there is no new product...'" [Herald]
BOSTON—A 21-year-old, unidentified Boston woman is about to reap a windfall from an Australian apartment her late mother owned, thanks to the sleuthing by brokers Down Under: "The newly-discovered owner is to receive about AU$150,000 (US$148,000) of rental income from the past two decades, plus the proceeds after the two-bedroom apartment goes to auction Tuesday night for an expected price of more than AU$550,000."

JAMAICA PLAIN—Mayor Menino has hinted at big doings afoot for the neighborhood's library branch: "The JP Branch, among the most-used in the city's system, has several problems. The 1911 building does not comply with the Americans for Disabilities Act, for instance, in providing access to two of the structure's three floors. And it has an entrance leading right through the children's room, which library booster Gretchen Grozier has called 'not safe or optimal.'" [Patch]
