Nice that most of these are close enough to contribute to the downtown area anyway. Expanding the growth of the urban core in a way where it's still easily walkable to the Skyway, Flyer, or just into downtown should help bolster the residency numbers and hopefully strengthen the market for more downtown proper projects.
So, to the young people fighting in this movement for change, here is my charge: march in the streets, protest, run for school committee or city council or the state legislature. And win. - Ed Markey

Agreed Marcus. There needs to be more of a zoning focus towards the peripheral neighborhoods. Areas like St Nicholas should have tons of commercial investment given it's location & demographics.

Would be nice to see a Director of Planning and Development interested in really doing that actual planning work.
