Coming soon to Southie
The City of Boston’s Zoning Board of Appeals approved a 8.5 million dollar project for 621 East First Street. South Boston resident and developer Gregg Donovan will now break ground on his development which includes 28 units with parking, a barber shop and a YMCA.
Cara Donovan, wife of Gregg, championed the efforts of the YMCA coming to South Boston. “Families are the foundation of the South Boston and we don’t want to see them leaving. We want them to stay. The addition of the the YMCA to our community is such a positive one that will not only benefit families but all residents as well. This would also would be a great asset for the City Point, especially since there is no indoor recreational center in that neighborhood,” said Donovan.
The Y will have programs for everyone from kids to seniors and offer free child care while you work-out. The cost will be $40 for a monthly family membership.
