Mapping the New Development in Busy, Busy East Boston

By Tom Acitelli | Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Few Hub enclaves are changing more than East Boston. The neighborhood has seen not only record-setting deals of late but lightning-fast ones as well. It’s also begun to benefit (or to suffer) from that curious Boston phenomenon of being the next It Neighborhood to welcome those priced out of the last It Neighborhood. Buyers and renters, in short, are easing their ways to Eastie to escape higher costs elsewhere. They have ever more options as our map of new development in the neighborhood demonstrates. Several hundred apartments, even condos, are slated or have recently opened in East Boston.

East Boston’s New Development
1) 
 282 MARGINAL STREET
The nine-unit condo debuted in mid-2014. Asking prices have run from the low $400,000s to the upper $600,000s (and closing prices from the high $300,000s to the mid-$500,000s).
2) 
 135 BREMEN STREET
The Boston Redevelopment Authority approved this 94-unit apartment complex in November. Spreads will run from studios to 3-BRs; and the complex will come with 110 parking spaces and 100 bike spots.
3) 
 PORTSIDE AT EAST PIER
Building 7, the inaugural phase of the Portside at East Pier, debuted in November 2014. It includes 176 apartments and 192 parking spaces. The wider complex will include some 550 units.
4) 
 6 NEW STREET
The 259-unit, twin-towered apartment complex broke ground officially in December, though it’s been years in coming. It will include up to 155 parking spots as well as a new water-taxi dock.
5) 
 LOFTEL BOSTON
Nothing’s been O.K.’d yet, but there are plans to plunk 150 loft-like hotel rooms on a long-vacant building (with an additional two stories added for good measure). Rooms would average $200 a night or less.
6) 
 151 LIVERPOOL STREET
The pending proposal for 151 Liverpool Street would put up as many as two dozen apartments as well as 35 parking spots.
7) 
 HODGE BOILER WORKS
This big site is slated to have 95 apartments as well as a six-room bed and breakfast and a new marina building. There will also be parking for 75. The Boston Redevelopment Authority has O.K.’d it.
8) 
 CLIPPERSHIP WHARF
Some 400 condos are tentatively planned for this project, which the Boston Redevelopment Authority has signed off on. It’s also supposed to have plenty of retail and what the BRA calls “maritime support services.”
