Hubway Bike Share is Coming to East Boston

East Boston will see 10 new Hubway bike locations this year, according to an announcement by the Boston Transportation Department

There will also be a survey for the public where they are able to prioritize specific locations. 

The community workshop is on June 30th from 6.30PM to 8PM at East Boston Public Library.

The community open house is on July 28th from 6PM to 8PM at East Boston Public Library.

Waterfront Apartments at East Pier: Portside Shifts away from Condos

There seems to be a change in promise for the waterfront project at East Pier. Instead of 370 condos and 173 apartments that were recently approved for the complex, there are new plans to have 454 apartments and 103 condominium units. According to Curbed.Boston, “the developer of the big-time waterfront project Portside at East Pier is apparently quite bullish on the region’s rent market.”

Stay tuned for more changes coming from East Boston.

Portside at East Pier: Apartments Now Leasing

Portside at East Pier has finally arrived! This fabulous establishment is now leasing, and with offered perks, too! More space for your money and three months free rent are just a few of our favorite features this east development brings to the table.

The square footage per unit at Portside at East Pier is significantly higher than those to compare with on the market. As found on its website, studios are 566 square feet; 1-Bedrooms are 730 square feet; and 2-Bedrooms are around 1,000 square feet.

Other perks are displayed by their high attention to detail and quality which are exuded throughout the entire building. Each unit contains stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, oversized windows and kitchen islands – showcasing quality at its finest.

“Relax,” says the website. “You’ve found your haven. It’s every bit as luxurious as the high-rises across the harbor, but with even more spectacular views, and provides a bit more room in the budget to enjoy brand new discoveries.”

Zakim Bridge Skatepark Breaks Ground

East Boston has two new developments brewing as of late. One being the long awaited skate park at 135 Bremen Street that developers are breaking ground for today! It will be located in a cool spot under the ramps of the Zakim Bridge. The other development is a multi-use building that plans to include 94 residential units, commercial space, 126 associate parking spaces (for both cars and bikes), and a ton of space for lush landscaping. What a nice addition to the East side of town – looking forward to more to come that way!

From Curbed:

“It’s been 10 years in the making, but on Thursday morning, officials will finally break ground on the long-awaited skatepark that will be built beneath the ramps of the Zakim Bridge.”

East Boston Waterfront Tower Gains Approval

Another residential building coming to Boston!  This one will be in East Boston, an area that has not had a lot of new construction lately.  The project is expected to bring over 200 new affordable housing units to the city.

According to the BBJ, “Gerdin Edlin will contribute about $7.8 million toward construction of affordable housing in the city under a linkage agreement tied to the New Street project. The company and BRA analysts agreed putting the affordable housing on the 4-acre tower site could make the project financially unviable. The tower will have about 16 units per floor, a representative of the developer said. The entire project could create about 259 housing units, according to a document filed with the BRA.”

The full article, including additional details on the projected tower, are available on the Boston Business Journal.
