A look at the East Boston waterfront
The planners recently presented a scaled-down version of the previous plan. The new plan would trim the large building planned for the site from eight floors to five and from 119 residential units to 95, a reduction of more than 80,000 square feet. The design would make the building closer in scale to the adjacent six-story Carlton Wharf building. Between the two buildings would be a small parking lot of approximately 23 spaces, shielded partially from view by a line of trees. Wednesday night on the former Hodge Boiler Works site.
