Downtown Boston apartment inventory begins to thaw

The rental supply glut in Downtown Boston has received quite a bit of attention in the past 12 months. The pandemic caused a shift in demand for housing in Boston, and many Downtown neighborhoods went from being the hardest areas to find an apartment to the easiest seemingly overnight.

The challenges faced by the Boston housing market have been well documented in 2020. The pandemic has caused massive shifts in urban population distribution in metropolitan areas all across the country, and Boston is no exception. It effectively took one of the nation’s hottest real estate markets and caused it to come to a grinding halt as apartment vacancies soar all over the city.

The city is moving ahead with it's plans to put a year-round, indoor, multiple independent vendor Public Market in Downtown Boston. Having lived in a city(Portland, ME) with a dedicated indoor market similar to the proposal for this one, I'll say, I can't be more excited to see this come to fruition.

The hole in the middle of the city where Filene's used to be is supposed to be a sparkling new retail, office and condo tower someday. This week on www.radioboston.org, we're remembering when Downtown Crossing was where you went to find deals, when you didn't necessarily have the banq for Newbury Street. And we're asking what you'd like to see developed there.

Dude. I'm loving the new Starbucks doubleshot promo where the guy rides around near North Station on a Starbucks bike and hands out doubleshots from his bike basket. I'm wondering how effective it really is as a promotion though, because I'm getting at least one per day from this guy, so I'm not going to need to buy the stuff ever. But hey, free boing. Gotta love that.
