Here's the last match-up in the first round of the fourth annual Curbed Boston Cup. Help us pick the Neighborhood of the Year! Voting lasts 24 hours.
Jamaica Plain finished second to East Boston in last year's Curbed Boston Cup. Might it triumph this year? (After all, Assembly Row bumped Eastie off earlier this week.) The neighborhood has welcomed new developments, such as the conversion of the old Norbert School into the Off Centre Lofts. Work has also started on developments such as the transit-oriented Commons at Forest Hills Station (rendered). Meanwhile, deals continued apace in JP, including at 225 Centre Street in Jackson Square.
Mighty Dorchester brought us one of the year's juicier brouhahas: the kvetching over a dearth of parking at the proposed 15-unit project at 120 Savin Hill Avenue—across from the Savin Hill T station. The neighborhood also provided one of the best examples of how frenetic the Boston housing market has become: the bidding for a dilapidated, old transit station in Upham's Corner (pictured). And the deals! Let's not forget those. Through it all, too, the Indigo Line's progress continued unabated.
