The Boston Redevelopment Authority has scheduled a public meeting about the redevelopment of Mike's Auto at 150 West Broadway into 31 condos with... get this... 33 garaged parking spaces.
Never mind the ratio—more than one parking space for each residence—but the proposed project, which also includes a commercial/retail component, is exactly two blocks from the Broadway stop on the Red Line. Old habits die hard, we guess. Leave it to something like the plans for 150 West Broadway to smack us upside the head and remind us how much Bostonians love their parking—wherever, whenever (and, god, do they hate parklets). Never mind the trend toward transit-oriented development in the city and its environs.
