View as Map

'Tis a busy time construction-wise in Boston right now, everyone knows that. Yet, will it ever be enough to bring down rents and prices to habitable levels for the masses or will frustrated tenants and buyers keep pushing ever farther out on the commuter rail and the T? Who knows? What we do know is that the Boston Redevelopment Authority has recently O.K.'d several new residential projects, including the redevelopment of the old Charlestown Battalion Armory and a 22-unit apartment complex at the former Lucky Strike Bowling Alley in Dorchester. Bring it. Fast.
