Charlestown Traffic Woes, Southie's Biggest Sale; More!

SOUTH BOSTON— A condo in South Boston's ultra-luxury Macallen Building traded for $1.9 million making it the highest-priced condo sale in South Boston this year. It also ranks as one of the top 5 highest priced condominium sales since 2007. The unit includes city and harbor views, private rooftop terrace, and two-car garage parking. Last October, it was listed for $2.2 million. [BBJ]
CHARLESTOWN— Wynn Casino Developers recently met with Charlestown residents about addressing heavier traffic concerns and other transportation issues the community faces if the casino in Everett is built. Roughly 60% of traffic travelling to the hotel and casino is expected to travel through Charlestown's Sullivan Square. City Councilor Sal LaMattina, whose district includes East Boston and Charlestown, spoke on the traffic impacts. "Charlestown is really more impacted than Everett. There needs to be a mitigation plan for this neighborhood that benefits the folks of this neighborhood." [Globe]
BOSTON— Boston University recently filed plans to build a new 7-story, 150,000 square foot building on a surface parking lot at 610 Commonwealth Ave. This is only one of eight buildings it plans to construct within the next 10 years as part of its $750 million master plan. The university will also work on public projects that will include new pedestrian malls and pocket parks around its campus. []
