Right before our eyes, the block of West Broadway between Dorchester St and F is transforming into one of the most sought after blocks in our neighborhood.  Over the last 5 years, it’s gone from dollar stores and a shuttered cinema to new restaurants, a coffee shop and fitness studio and lots of  luxury condos on the horizon.

And now the a new project is proposed for the buildings at 453-469 West Broadway (The Dollar Store, Nick’s House of Pizza, Naning Wok and Natural Nails).  The project will replace the three commercial buildings with a five story development with 44 units and 48 parking spots.  On the ground-floor would be nearly 14,000 square feet of commercial space.

According to the Boston Herald, 38 of the condos would be market-rate and six would be designated as “affordable.”

The developer for this project – the same developer that wants to build at 463 West Broadway is part of the team that wants to replace the Gulf station at 87-93 West Broadway.

New future developments for that block also include the old Broadway Movie Theater and the old Schubert’s/Perkins Supply/Dunkin Donuts building.

    If only there was a way for things to be built instantaneously. Love that the neighborhood is continuing its revitalization…but could do without the scaffolding & resulting increase in traffic.

      McGoos is actually a great spot for a late slice. I haven’t been there for anything but a late slice, but a great late slice it is.
