How about this prime waterfront real estate?
Neighborhood news across Boston:
The former Boston Flower Exchange in the South End is planned to be redeveloped into labs with office buildings, sure to bring thousands of tech and life sciences jobs. The Boston Globe has more on the 1.6 million square feet property that was acquired for $40 million.
Consider this a fair warning! Despite the fact that spring technically begins Monday, there is a chance for winter weather this weekend. Boston.com has views of the few tracks that could bring a wintry mix to Boston.
