Looks like the Gulf Gas station development is coming our way, Southie!  The City of Boston’s Board of Appeals approved the development on Tuesday.  The gas station at  the corner of A and West Broadway will be replaced with a seven story complex with 65 units and 88 parking spaces in an automated garage.  The units will be one and two bedrooms and include restaurant and retail space on the ground level.  The development will also feature 9 private roof decks! Construction should start in spring of 2018.

So there you go!  One less gas station for Southie!

    Hey, I’ve got a good idea! Let’s move 65 family’s from OLD HARBOR PROJECTS into these nice condos. Also down the WATERFRONT (22 LIBERTY WARF) WE CAN MOVE MORE OF THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE..Funny I don’t see ANY “No income” residents in this neck of the woods. I wonder why?

      Would much rather have them build a 100% Income restricted building in Mattapan so they can build a 0% income restricted building in Southie. Win – Win for everyone. Income restricted people get to hang with their buddies down in Mattapan, while hard working people get hang with their hard working friends in Southie.

    Full speed ahead! Southie is looking better and better. Every passing day a new project gets approved….what more can you ask for!

    Anyone who has worked hard and deserves this prime location is in for a treat!

    Work hard, pay your bills….good things happen!

    I think it’s time to spread the useless, lazy, 3rd generation welfare mothers ( NOBODY KNOWS WHO THE FATHERS ARE).. social SECURITY disability DEDBEATS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS DOWN THE WATERFRONT, Let the rich and privileged get a taste of what we must put up with in the neighborhood.

      I think it’s time to simply remove them from Boston all together.

      If you want to reside in one of the most desirable place in the country to live, you should earn it.

      So, my suggestion is this: Buck up, earn your keep, and stick around. Or pack up and take a hike, because you are only delaying the inevitable by not.

    Are there any developments like this being talked about near Andrew?

    • Roger Glass December 1, 2017 at 9:53 am - Reply

      Washington Village and the Bell’s market project to name two.

      I can only imagine there will be many many more announced over the coming months in efforts to break ground on day one of Spring.

        Very excited for Washington Village. Once it’s done (which won’t be for a long time), I think it will be the anchor that bucks the stigma around Andrew Square.

        Yes, WV and Bell’s Market. I hope there will be larger condo buildings right around Andrew Sq. Anyways, excited for WV too!

          Did bells market get approval? I thought it was only under review.

    New development is nice.. but some of these new buildings are butt ugly…. like the lone being built on W 8th ..Also good luck getting on the T at Broadway folks.

      The two being built on W 8TH are going to be gorgeous. I suggest you allow them to finish the buildings and complete the aesthetics before you start spouting off.

      You would NOT be using Broadway from here, dear. Where do you even live? Providence lol?

      Agree about getting on the T at Broadway. Yet your pal Ed Flynn thinks the T is fine and we should invest in more community amenities….even though the public school aged population has been declining year over year for a decade straight. Until the T’s worker union is wrestled to where they should be, all facets of the T are going to be awful for the foreseeable future.

    New developments may be UGLY, but at least it brings a new breed of HARD WORKING, EDUCATED PEOPLE..

    • Roger Glass December 4, 2017 at 9:54 am - Reply

      Sure, they may look ugly WHILE they are being built…let them finish! It seems everyone is so interested in getting into a fight about this stuff that they can’t even wait for the image to be built.

      The new developments all look amazing and there is a vision in store.

      A vision that brings, as OTS says, HARD WORKING, EDUCATED, CONTRIBUTING members of society into the community
