New, 1 comment

ROXBURY—Neighborhood residents are none too keen on the gentrification the Olympics could bring: "'Mission Hill is already gone, Northeastern has taken that. Then the next step is Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan,' DePina said to cheers. 'People, read between the lines. What has happened is gentrification, and 2024 is just another way to finish it off.'"

WATERFRONT—The new inn would be tied to a Convention Center expansion that may or may not happen: "The three teams vying to build a massive hotel on the South Boston Waterfront have included prominent minority business partners, in the hope that diversity will help them win the bid for the project, according to documents disclosed Tuesday."
