Brighton Monastery Conversion; West Roxbury Condo Change

BRIGHTON—The project could mark the start of more private developers, rather than schools, building graduate-student housing in Boston: "A veteran local real estate firm is teaming up with one of the biggest student-housing developers in the country to turn the 12-acre site next to St. Elizabeth's Hospital into a complex of buildings aimed at a booming but underserved population of 20-somethings." [Globe]
WEST ROXBURY—All of the condos would be 2-BRs: "Residents who attended a meeting ... on a 16-unit condo proposal for the old West Roxbury Motors site generally gave a thumbs up to a proposed design that eliminates an earlier exterior that residents found too modern for the area, too much like something built out of Lego bricks."
