The demolition of 898 Summer Street to make way for a pizza parlour parking lot appears to be getting closer by the day.

This is across the street from the popular Dairy Queen ice cream parlour.





The old NewAlliance Bank building at 550 Summer Street appears to have gotten a new facade.

Before:



After:



Quite a makeover, but was this edifice's trip to the beauty parlour worth it?

Construction on new apartment building at 545 Bedford Street on the site of an old funeral parlour.





This looks to be the cheap Avalon method of construction.

The 999 Bedford Street building, which has stood empty for more than two years, is now being cleaned and/or renovated.





The Patriot National Bank at 900 Bedford Street appears to have gotten new windows installed on the upper floors.



And now to the South End:

This block bounded by Washington Blvd, Atlantic St, Walter Wheeler Drive and Harbor Point Road is being dug up, probably for new development.







New CVS being built next to Fairway on Canal St.







New townhouses going up just east of 82 Ludlow St.

This afternoon I noticed that Mill River Park is fenced off. There were some signs typical of when a new construction or redesigning is about to take place, but I couldn't make out what it said.

I wonder what will be done to the park.

I'm curious if anyone knows if UBS is moving everyone out of it's current building and trying to fit them all into the RBS building? Or will there be any leftover staff in the current UBS building.

If they all move out... I was thinking that maybe this creates a new opportunity for Bridgewater associates. They would have much better commuter access for the talent they try to attract out of NYC, quite a large building with potential for some expansion maybe? Plus the large open trading floor could be a good environment for their culture that speaks to openness, truth, and transparency. Has anyone else been thinking this?

Construction has started on carousel at Broad and Mill River Street, which was to have begun last year but delayed because of flood plain approvals. Will also include a food pantry.






Groundbreaking on the Steve and Alexandra Cohen Skating Center and Fountain and Skating Rink site (the fenced area on Washington) has also been delayed. Wonder if Steve's troubles with SEC are involved?

I read that UBS Stamford based staff are moving into the RBS building which is due to be empty by the end of q2 2016. No idea who will move into the building but rumors include bridge water and even DB. Prime location so don't think it will empty for long.

CTbrook,

UBS is moving out of the building. All jobs to RBS or back to NYC. I don't see Bridgwater taking it as they wanted a new custom building for Ray's vision and company needs. DB? Again, I don't see it. They have problems and moving won't help. There is a big disparity right now bw US banks and foreign banks in terms of risk appetite, regulatory requirements and overall health. Lots of foreign are reducing profile in US. That building will probably be multi-tennent for future. Stamford is way, way ahead of itself in terms of building high income high rises. The coming jobs will not pay enough to justify $3500 in rents. It is delusional and another sign that cheap money and rates are leading to mal-investment.
