Real Estate Development at 728 East Broadway – HAS BEEN APPROVED.

An important community meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 19th at 7pm at the Tynan Community Center (650 East Fourth Street) to discuss a proposed residential/commerical development at 728 East Broadway (next to the Boston Beer Garden). 

The development being proposed includes new construction of a 4-story building with approximately 5800 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and 25 condos with off-street parking for 46 cars.  This project is being proposed by the Empire Realty Trust. 

All are encouraged to attend.

    This project is completely out of line with the scale of this part of East Broadway, and is of the worst, most generic, meaningless architecture that could be placed in a well established neighborhood. This is development for the sake of money at its worst. It adds nothing to the community, the neighborhood, or the esthetics df East Broadway. Let’s not let this happen to the character of our neighborhood like we’re seeing in other parts of South Boston. Unfortunately I am out of town for this meeting or I would be there to argue against it.

    Sorry, but hasn’t everybody figured it out yet? If this proposal is from a developer on the correct “list” the proposal will get approved. Our local elected officals will ignore what is in the best interest of the community and they will back it. The South Boston community has been sold out so many times by our own people, I have lost count. So a big thank you goes out to our rep and city councilor who I am sure will rubber stamp this brick eye-sore.

    The real issue here is thus property has an AUL issued by DEP . The projects sits on land that is contaminated .

    The argument that because it has a AUL and therefore shouldn’t be developed is erroneous. If anything, that should be cause for priority redevelopment. Across the state, brownfield redevelopment is policy; this shouldn’t be an exception.

    The evolving character of the neighborhood seems to align very well with new developments at high price points…duh
