67 and Counting: Mapping the Hub's Rental Development

View as Map

We kick off Renters Week 2013 with this monster map of the new apartment developments either opened, planned, pitched or under construction in the last 18 months.

As you can see, the Hub is busy, busy, busy when it comes to apartment-building (though it's not entirely clear whether this new supply will, in fact, slake demand and drive rents down). The map includes recently O.K.'d giants like the Christian Science Plaza tower and the redevelopment of the Government Center Garage as well as more modest fair like Chelsea Place (above), where the floorplans are named after presidents, and 11 West Broadway, which brought non-waterfront Southie its first Starbucks.

If things looks a little crowded—we're talking 67 points here—zoom in to make things more distinct. And if we've missed anything, drop us a line on the always-discreet Curbed Boston Tipline.

Update: This map was significantly updated on Nov. 22, 2013.
