Thursday's news of the new Christian Science Plaza towers got us thinking about the scope of the region's residential-building boom. One of the plaza towers will be mostly condos, the other mostly apartments. So just how many apartment and condo buildings are being developed in the Hub? We counted at least 63 projects from the North End to Watertown, from Charlestown to Roslindale (if we missed any, drop us an email).
We did not include arrested development like the Copley Place condo tower that's on ice; nor did we include long-tentative plans like those for One Canal in the West End. These are the projects either definitively planned, under construction or recently opened. (Define recently? Since 2011.) One user note on the map: If it looks too crowded, use the scale on the left to zoom in—that will spread things out a bit.
