Another Big Dig-related real estate project! This one's in Charlestown, at the corner of Park and Warren streets, on a 1-acre site that's been dormant for 20 years despite private and public efforts to get something going. Well, something has gotten going, per The Globe's Casey Ross: 17 condos with a public park and 28 parking spaces, designed to blend in with the area's Colonial homes.
The development, on land that used to host a ramp into Charlestown from Route 1, is one of several real estate developments taking place on properties that became part of the $15 billion Big Dig. Other developers are building large housing complexes on Big Dig sites across from the TD Garden and in Chinatown at the edge of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. The development will be called Warren Green; is supposed to be completed next summer; and, given the building's planned size, 29,730 square feet, we're assuming most of the condos will be of the one- and two-bedroom variety (sigh).
