  1. Thank you to the BRA for approving yet another unnecessary luxury Condo building on India St and the Greenway, with units all over $2m. That’s just what we need???

  2. Hi Liz, You are so right. We have elderly living with Drug Addicts & Ex-Drug Addicts & the
    City wants to approve this construction site. Sick, and getting Sicker & more Greedier. It never
    seems to be enough. It is a Disgrace. I have news for all these people making these kinds of
    investments. It might look nice to the eye, but trust me, the cleaniest means of heat is Forced
    Hot Water, none of them offer that, and as far as Soundproofing, that is another joke. If you
    have to spend Millions of Dollars, in my opinion, it should be for the very best, not this Mickey
    Mouse Construction that all these companies look for the Cheap way out. Soundproofing should be a major issue, especially in this city. Boston is never, ever going to be NYC, and yet
    they keep on trying. Money the Root of all Evil.
