Fenway's Boylston West Moves Forward; Menino Laughs

FENWAY—Demolition's done at 1325-1341 Boylston Street to make way for Boylston West: "In 2011, the Boston Redevelopment Authority approved construction of 300 apartments, 230,000 square feet of office space and 165,000 square feet of retail. A Target store is slated for the site and a new street will connect Boylston Street to Van Ness and Brookline Avenue." [Biz Journal]

EVERETT/EAST BOSTON—Mayor-for-Life Tom Menino will have no more of that talk of a casino in Everett and not at Suffolk Downs in Eastie: "'The interesting part of it is I own part of the Everett piece,' Menino said referring to a chunk of Boston that extends across the Mystic River, bordering Everett. Menino followed that remark with a sarcastic laugh, saying, 'Heh heh. Ha ha ha ha ha. Hahaah.'" [Boston.com]
