New, 14 comments

BOSTON—Oh boy: "At unchecked pollution levels, all of the Fenway, the South End, and the Seaport District, as well as parts of Dorchester, South Boston, and downtown—save for a small island near the Common—will be underwater by 2100. Even with extreme carbon cuts, we'd only be able to save a tiny portion of downtown, the Fenway, Fort Point, and Southie." [Daily]
BOSTON—The new benchmarks are expected by the end of the year: "Two top city officials disclosed Tuesday that Walsh plans to ask developers of new apartment and condo buildings to add to the number of affordably priced units they build within their projects or, alternatively, fund added affordable units elsewhere."
