SOUTH BOSTON—The city's zoning board has O.K.'d the redevelopment plan for the James Collins Mansion. It "calls for the renovation of the existing 8,690-square-foot structure at 928 East Broadway and the construction of two four-story wings, which will be attached to the main structure. Once completed, the approximately 15,625-square-foot parcel will contain nine three-bedroom condo units and 18 parking spaces." []

DOWNTOWN BOSTON—The Ames Boston (one of the Curbed Boston Hotels 18) is offering what it calls an "XO package" for Valentines Day, and it's exactly what it sounds like.

Showerheads offer rain shower features." [Ames]
