Boston is seeing some of its briskest residential and hotel development in living memory, with thousands of apartments, condos, and rooms going up across the city. There's also a dorm-building boom that, while not quite as loud as its apartment/condo big brother, is just as significant. Universities and colleges are undertaking or wrapping up major projects that will alter the skyline and, hopefully, the housing market as well, as schools absorb more of their students from the general population scrambling for a place to live in a market with a frustratingly finite supply. The eight projects either recently wrapped, planned or under construction are expected to add lodging for well over 4,000 students in Boston and possibly quite more, given that some of these units are apartments and not merely long, thin rooms with twin beds and a Belushi poster.
