West Roxbury Townhouses; 'Mayor of Boston's Waterfront'

WEST ROXBURY—We're talking rooftop photovoltaic arrays and super-insulated building envelopes, people: "Sixteen contemporary, sustainably designed townhomes are proposed for a secluded property near Allandale Woods ... near the Jamaica Plain border." [Herald]
WATERFRONT—The "unofficial mayor of Boston's waterfront" is decamping to someplace called Pittsburgh: "[Vivien] Li was instrumental in the dramatic transformation of Boston's waterfront, lobbying effectively to clean up the harbor's waters and then working to preserve public access to the shoreline amid the development that followed. Her blessing was highly sought by the developers building a skyline along the city's waterfront." [Globe]
