JAMAICA PLAIN—There are so many roadblocks to this idea, but it's out there now: "The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) has agreed to ask the MBTA to extend the Green Line E train down South Huntington Avenue to Hyde Square or even farther into Jamaica Plain." [Banker & Tradesman]
JAMAICA PLAIN—Despite interest, the neighborhood isn't likely to get a Hubway station in 2013: "In order for the Hubway system to flow correctly, one stand-alone station would not suffice, according to Nicole Freedman, director of bicycle programs for the city of Boston. ... The average Hubway ride is under a mile, and no two Hubway stations are more than a quarter-mile apart, so despite sponsorship interest a station is not being imminently planned in Jamaica Plain..." [Patch]

HUB-WIDE—Mark your calendars, all those interested in whether stacks of 450-square-foot shoe boxes will take in these parts: "That's one of the questions to be explored at 'Micro-Housing: Rethinking Urban Living,' a forum sponsored by Suffolk University Sawyer Business School and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board to be held on Tuesday, March 26 from 7:45 to 9:45 a.m. in the Modern Theatre at 525 Washington St. in Downtown Crossing. Admission is free." [Biz Journal]
ALLSTON—Dig Boston continues its landlord reviews, like from this beaut on Brighton Ave.: "Terrible Living Experience: 1. Unreliable hot water- sometimes had to take ice cold showers 2. Broken toilet when we moved in 3. Carbon Monoxide leak 4. Beg bugs." [Dig]
