Condos could replace equipment-rental place in Dorchester Lower Mills

A North End developer has filed plans to replace an equipment-rental place and a vacant house at 1161-1169 Adams St. in Dorchester Lower Mills with a five-story, 29-unit condo building - with 29 parking spaces.
The plans by William Caulder's 6M Development call for four units to be sold as affordable.
Caulder had originally proposed a 33-unit building.
Caulder hopes to begin 18 months of construction in early 2023 on the $15.2-million project.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
build baby build!
You'll never catch me being opposed to anything that increases density in Boston.
Reality of high mortgage rates
Is very high rents too. Rental prices are going to go through the roof regardless of how much they build with 30 year fixed at 5.5%+
Vacant House, Yes, But...
An early 1800's house which is a great example of the village architecture of Lower Mills from when it was a somewhat isolated location.
If this was Brookline or JP, people would be chaining themselves to the house to save it. Dot? Meh.
If someone shouts "build baby build", there is a 24,000 SF union hall with 106,000 SF (that's 2.5 acres) of parking and grass right behind here. Get on that.
What’s your plan
Steal the tin knockers building from them.
The Cape house covered in vinyl siding? At 1169 Adam St?
Maybe you should ask the owner living in Milton why she's not trying to save it.
ETA: the building behind for the Union is a training center. So that educational space is probably a good thing. The Union Hall is next to this project, on Adam St.
A compromise, perhaps
Would be for the City to use some of that ARPA money burning a hole in its pocket to relocate the house to a nearby park and fund its restoration into a museum that would showcase the Lower Mills area.
So what are you going to do then?
Ok John, this is your chance! Take a stand! Do something other than complain on the Internet for once!
I think you're underestimating the neighborhood groups
They try to block anything.
