Neighborhood #2.2 (Aurora Update)

Lillet and I often walk by the sinkhole construction site of Aurora: The Dawn of Luxury. Not much seems to happen there, but one day we saw this new banner on the facade.


What's this? The ikon? Did the Developers Group change the name in the hopes of hastening construction? Wait ... will there be no dawn of luxury? Days later, the ikon banner was gone. What's going on here?

Not to fear. The southern end of McCarren Park will soon see the dawn of a new age and time enduring beauty and strength.

Things seem to be going slowly at the Aurora, at least in the sense of any actual construction taking place. But, hey, you can't rush the Dawn of Luxury. At least landscaping seems to be going apace.


The Developers Group, by the way, are the same people who are bringing us the 342 Bedford Condominiums.

And around the corner, on Richardson Street of all places, say hello to LUXE226.

Barf barf barf.

Why does everything going up in the neighborhood look so cheap and exactly alike, yet so freaking expensive. The Ainslie Grand going up around the corner is a similar piece of sh*t and the apts are 7-800000 each for at most 1-2 bedrooms. On Ainslie. Right off of Bushwick. And they're all sold, according to the realtor I overheard last weekend.

I was just saying to Ann & Dab yesterday that what Boston REALLY needs is more brand-new luxury condominiums. There just aren't enough for everyone.

Just count yourself lucky.

I love the Opposums of the Day, though!
