Mapping the New Development in Busy, Busy East Boston

View as Map

Few Hub enclaves are changing more than East Boston. The neighborhood has seen not only record-setting deals of late but lightning-fast ones as well. It's also begun to benefit (or to suffer) from that curious Boston phenomenon of being the next It Neighborhood to welcome those priced out of the last It Neighborhood. Buyers and renters, in short, are easing their ways to Eastie to escape higher costs elsewhere. They have ever more options as our map of new development in the neighborhood demonstrates. Several hundred apartments, even condos, are slated or have recently opened in East Boston.
