'Tis no secret that every decent, God-fearing capitalist wants in on the development boom along the Southie waterfront, including in the Seaport District. Such insatiability has led to a lawsuit against the already controversial 411 D Street development, across from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, by a neighboring landlord.
It appears, per The Globe's Casey Ross, that landlord Terence Conroy Jr. believes the city erred in April in approving the 197-unit, two-building 411 D Street next to his parking lot. See, Conroy wants to eventually build something similar on his own lot (Boston's in the mad midst of an apartment-building boom) and 411 D, he claims in court papers, "will significantly reduce the view from [his] parcels, lead to a loss of natural light on the parcels, increase traffic in the immediate area, and increase density in what is fast becoming a densely populated neighborhood."
The developer of 411 D, Cresset Development, had no comment. Stay tuned.
