Fire at South Boston project

By on

Adam, It hasn't been called a project in years. It used to be called the D Street project. It's been called the West Broadway Housing Development for several years now. All the new Yuppies are paying big money for their condo's on several streets that border the housing development. They would never buy property near a project. (lol)
