Boston 25 News - City Council: Developers Should Have to Study Community Impact Before Building
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Developers may soon have another hurdle to jump over before getting the green light to build in Boston.
The City of Boston is in a building boom, with roughly 20,000 apartment units under construction in the metro area. CBRE, the largest full-service real estate services company in New England predicts nearly 12,000 new apartments will open this year.
"The rule in which we plan and how we design our city needs to make sure that civil rights is part of the conversation," said Boston city councilor Lydia Edwards.
