Development Notebook: Burg Site Quickly on the Market

January 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This one didn’t take long to hit the market. There are permits in place for a five-story building designed by Burg architect Philip Toscano, but we’re guessing that in this market that plans for 105 Metropolitan Avenue, which is behind the garden at the popular eatery Relish didn’t work out. It’s on the market via Massey Knakal for $900,000 and they did get that foundation dug in time for it to qualify for a 421-a tax abatement. Did someone say “developer blight”?

    Perhaps “developer blight” will become a new set of community gardens…
