The clue in our latest Real Estate Jeopardy was: This Brighton development is slated to have 40 condos as well as 2,400 square feet of retail that Starbucks may or may not fill (check out the bottom right corner of the above rendering).
The answer: What is the Aberdeen? We also accepted: What is 1650 Commonwealth Avenue? Yes, indeed, early renderings for the recently O.K.'d project show a Starbucks filling the retail spot. Whether that happens—and what it might mean for that surrounding area of Brighton—remains to be seen. Stay tuned and thanks for playing.
