South Boston Construction Projects Updated

Recently, we presented an update on projects that are proposed or under construction around Andrew Square. In terms of new developments, the Andrew Square area has really come to life. Over in the Seaport District (still a part of South Boston, of course), huge projects continue to be built, from WS Development to the pre-certified 10 World Trade by Boston Global Investors (BGI) and all the way out to 88 Black Falcon Avenue, where four additional floors and double the floor space are proposed. In between, many life science facilities are under construction or have been recently opened.

We’ll limit this update to the more residential neighborhoods of South Boston (ex Andrew Square).

If you come to South Boston,

one likely route is along Summer Street, across the Reserved Channel, and then onto L Street, which connects to Summer between First and Second. You’ll pass the old Edison power plant to your left, now being carefully “deconstructed” by Hilco Redevelopment Partners. This preserves original materials of construction, especially one of the turbine halls that will become a highly varied, multilevel marketplace. The site is

15 acres; it will contain 600,000 square feet of residences and 860,000 square feet of offices/ labs. And directly across Summer Street from the Hilco mega-project is an empty old warehouse at 6 Elkins Street that is now proposed as the site of a block-long life sciences complex.

At the northwest corner of L and East Broadway, Monarc Development LLC has taken down the old buildings that were there. Further along East

Broadway, you’ll see a major mixed-use project, where steel is being erected and the ground floor is being poured. This project covers much of the 600 block. Further along Broadway, in Perkins Square, a completed office complex is now opening up. Notably, it will soon be the Headquarters of the City of Boston Credit Union (the CBCU). We welcome their relocation here, especially since the Perkins Square

Obituary William “Bill” J. Frew

Branch Library Friends

William “Bill” J. Frew, 87, of South Boston passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2023, at the home that he loved.

Predeceased by his beloved wife Renee Heenan and sister Mary Dillon. Bill is survived by his daughter Nora Frew, son Joseph Frew, Joseph’s wife Kate and their sons Aiden and Lucas.

Growing up in South Boston watching planes take off from Logan, he dreamed of becoming a pilot and joined the US Air Force to achieve his dream. After leaving the Air Force in

1965 he joined Trans World Airlines. As a Captain for TWA, he was blessed to travel the world and had a lifetime of incredible stories many of which are included in his two memoirs. Following his retirement, he became an avid artist with a love for landscapes and the sky. He often mentioned how beautiful clouds were and worked to capture them on canvas. Bill was a lifelong resident of South Boston and an active member of the community. He was a member of the South Boston Arts Association, South Boston Writers Group and a very active member of the Gate of Heaven community.

Family and Friends are invited to Services at Casper Funeral Home on Thursday April 20th from 4-7 PM. Funeral Mass will be held at Gate of Heaven Church on Friday April 21st at 10am with burial to follow in Quincy at Mt. Wollaston Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Gate of Heaven Church.

Every organization needs friends – good, hardworking friends. The South Boston Branch Library is no exception. Kathy, Joe, and Liz, members of the “Friends of the South Boston Branch Library”, lined up last Saturday to do their librarybased fundraising. This involves receiving books in good condition that are donated by neighbors who no longer have any use for them, and then putting these books on

sale to raise money for unbudgeted Branch Library expenses. The books are very reasonably priced at $1 or $2 each. Please note that many, many children’s books are available for any of your youngsters who love to read. The Friends sell books on the third Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. unless there’s another Branch Library activity taking place. The next Friends’ book sale: Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Boston One Day

Saturday was Boston One Day, which marked the tenth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. In the South Boston Seaport overlooking the Fort Point Channel, Martin’s Park was decked out in its warm, spring finery. Shades of yellow abounded, especially on the “Boston Strong” daffodils that adorned his Park, as well as so many other points around the City of Boston.

Construction

“T” stop for the outbound #9 bus has been restored.

You’ll notice that West Broadway, including the West Broadway Residences, has been renovated extensively in prior years. Many new buildings are located at the Broadway “T” Station. Down A Street, iron work for the Eli Lilly & Co. building that was once to be GE’s national headquarters is nearly complete. And the word is that after a couple of years riding out the office downturn, A Street will become another center for life science buildings.

In our article about Andrew Square projects, we mentioned the planned reconstruction of the Old Harbor/Mary Ellen McCormack homes. A similar huge project in the Old Colony/ Anne M. Lynch homes is in its last phase – demolition, regrading, and new foundation work is ongoing along Mercer, Old Harbor, and East Eighth Streets.

Three major projects that involve South Boston’s public facilities are in various phases right now. We see that lock-up construction containers have been positioned in back of the Dorchester Heights Monument to the Evacuation of Boston. The monument will be refurbished so that visitors can go from bottom to the top and back as they wish. The Heights are already the highest natural point in Boston – from the top of the monument, the views would be unmatched. Moakley Park is subject to flooding and its many offerings need to be upgraded as well. Needless to say (we hope), although it’s called a “Park”, Moakley with its fields, courts, and Saunders Stadium is really an athletic complex, to be used by city-wide sports teams and players from all over Boston. Finally, construction of the revised Curley Community Center – a.k.a. the “L Street Bathhouse” – seems to be complete. We saw a rented Hertz truck removing furniture from the

Curley on Tuesday morning, but our requests about what was going on were met with “No Comment!”

But the Curley still remains closed – virtually two years late.

Despite the pandemic and possible downturns, South Boston’s future as a center of

development is alive and well. Editors Note: SBOL was informed the delayed opening of the L Street Recreation Center was due to environmental issues. We are gathering more information and will report on it soon.

The 776 Summer “deconstruction”. The turbine hall (l.) will stay. New to Perkins Square – the CBCU headquarters (soon to open). The site of a proposed life science complex (at vacant 6 Elkins). The ground floor is being poured in the 600 East Broadway block. The excavation for the planned new units at Old Colony.

When Rachel Titcomb was growing up, she started her day with Petula Clark. Now she wants her Southie neighbors to start their day with Petula’s.

“My mom really loved Petula Clark,” Rachel said. “She would blast Petula Clark every morning to wake me and my siblings up. It put us in such a good mood.”

That’s the idea behind the name of her new restaurant at 81 L Street: Petula’s.

“My sisters and brothers have flashbacks. There was a lot of Petula Clark going on in my house,” she laughs.

Petula’s will be an all-day restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is set to open in early May, starting with dinner service, and by June, breakfast and lunch will be added.

Rachel, the spot’s operating general manager and partner, has

New Neighborhood Hangout Petula’s Set to Open in Early May

had her eye on this location for a while. “I think it’s really cool. I love single-story, corner locations; they are pretty rare to come by.

“I think this side of the neighborhood doesn’t have a ton going on for restaurants,” said Rachel, 35, who has lived and worked in Southie for 13 years. “I thought there’s a need for a daytime place, too; there’s a lot of great bars, but this is going to be breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”

Petula’s will feature healthier options but also craveable staples, Rachel said.

The food is American fare and will include sandwiches, salads, pizza, and small plates. Chef Dan Haley, who lives in South Boston, is coming to Petula’s from Nautilus in the Seaport District.

Rachel has been part of Southie’s restaurant scene for years. She started as a server at Lincoln and has worked her way up the food chain. She helped open Loco with Mike Shaw, Fat Baby, and Nautilus. She is partnering with Mike again to open Petula’s.

Rosie Craig is coming from Nautilus to be part of the management team.

Travis Robitaille from Gray’s Hall will be doing Petula’s beverage program along with Gray’s. The restaurant has a cordials license and the crew is coming up with creative cocktails and selecting all-natural, organically farmed wines.

“When you leave here, you will feel good,” Rachel said.

Rachel wants Petula’s to be the place people want to be and hopes they see it as an extension of their homes. “They can pop in and grab lunch and hang out until dinner or use it however they want,” she said.

She envisions it as an easy come-and-go, laidback, fun spot. Guests can come in yoga pants or get dressed up for date night.

“It’s meant to be a space that’s loose and built for the neighborhood,” she said. “I think

especially this side of Southie could use something like this.”

Construction is still going on but Rachel is happy with the progress being made. The former Sixth Gear location was a bit dark, so Rachel’s crew has turned it into a light, open, airy space.

The restaurant will have 10 bar seats and 50 seats in the dining room. Rachel is hoping to have outdoor seating as well. In June, a takeout window will open where patrons can pre-order and pick up.

The location sees a lot of foot traffic and a lot of people live in the area, Rachel said. Even during construction, people have popped in to see the progress. “There seems to be a lot of excitement around this.”

Rachel knows there’s a lot of Southie pride here, which she loves. “There’s a lot of energy here, a lot of support. Southie is special. It’s such a great neighborhood.”

The Summer Street Pilot Program Is Coming Soon

An important trio of Open Houses has begun. Last Thursday evening, April 13, from 5 to 8 p.m., the staff of a Transit Team from the Boston Transportation Department (the BTD) hosted a Community Open House at South Boston’s Hampton Inn. The Transit Team Director is Matt Moran; he assembled several professionals from the BTD and the BPDA (the Boston Planning & Development Agency) to oversee the Open House. The substance of this first meeting was presented in a series of posters and handouts, which were explained by the Transit Team. The central topic of these three Open Houses is called “The Summer Street Pilot Program”.

Right now, there are wellknown problems with Summer Street traffic. Currently, it includes private autos, public transit, and increasing truck transport from the Conley Terminal, along with significant bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Safety is a key issue, of course. In addition, Summer Street already becomes overcrowded at peak hours, which leads to delays - especially for buses. And demand for rapid, reliable transit will increase significantly. For example, construction is well underway at the old Edison Plant site; a major life sciences development has been proposed between Elkins and First Streets.

The “South Boston Transportation Action Plan” (the SBTAP) is a huge City of Boston effort that aims to reduce or eliminate traffic problems here, immediately and over a horizon of 15 years. Also, the SBTAP will develop a transit plan for the Seaport District, and even a Rapid Bus Corridor to North Station. The first major step in this plan will be “The Summer Street Pilot Program” we have mentioned above.

So what does a “Pilot Program” involve? Simply stated, it means that several different steps to improve the Summer Street traffic problems will actually be tested on Summer Street

itself, during workdays for several months. Piloting is a very useful way to get a “real-time/real-life” picture of what works (as well as what does not). For example, adaptive traffic signals could temporarily be erected along Summer Street. These signals will change their intervals, depending on how congested Summer Street becomes each day. Dedicated bus and truck lanes can be tried for a while, to accurately determine how well these lanes work. Various directional signs can be tested – those signs that work under actual conditions can then be made permanent. “The Summer Street Pilot Program” will take place over six months. Exact dates haven’t been determined yet, but the Pilot Program should begin around Memorial Day and extend nearly to the end of 2023.

Yesterday evening, April 19, a 5 to 8 p.m. meeting on “The Summer Street Pilot Program” took place at the Tynan Community Center. Until 6:30, the Pilot Program was on display, the same as it had been at the Hampton on the 13th. More than a hundred South Boston residents attended. Then, the BTD’s Transit Team Director Matt Moran presented the elements of the “Pilot Program” verbally with accompanying slides until just past 7 p.m. These elements included a brief history of South Boston and how it grew into its present state. The numbers quoted are impressive – 31,000 people will eventually reside in the Seaport District; it

will be the source of 89,000 jobs. Summer Street has seen an increase of 250% in workday commuters, and 40 to 50 mph speeding along the street is frequent. Of special concern is the increased popularity of bicycling and the 675 trucks that travel Summer Street every day.

City Council President Ed Flynn spoke after the BTD’s presentation. He expressed his

doubts about the Pilot Program, and asked that it begin in October to measure post-summer traffic and the effects of winter. Audience members then spoke up. In general, they were quite skeptical about the proposed Pilot Program, for reasons that extended to serious doubts about bicycle traffic during cold, wet weather, and a concern that the Pilot Program rules would automatically become permanent once they were put into place. Your input as a resident who’ll use Summer Street now and in the future is still needed. To find out more about “The Summer Street Pilot Program”, please plan to attend the third Community Open House on Monday, May 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. at District Hall (75 Northern Avenue in the South Boston Seaport District; from South Station take the Silver Line to its first stop, “Courthouse”).

Sophia, Maya, Matt (Transit Team Director), and Sam answer key questions. Yes, Summer Street is the main “Corridor” between South Boston and Downtown Boston.

In honor of One Boston Day, Perry School students gave back to their community. On Friday morning, third- and fourth-grade students cleaned up M Street Beach and in the afternoon, fifth- and sixth-grade students cleaned up Farragut/Marine Park. Meanwhile, first-grade students painted kindness rocks in the school’s outdoor classroom. Great job, kids!

City of Boston Summer Job Program

Over 300 youth are able to register for slots across all programming

Mayor Michelle Wu and Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) announced that registration is open for a variety of summer teen programs.

“We have put together a diverse menu of options for young people of all ages this summer across all our centers and we are looking forward to providing these enriching and engaging summer programs,” said Marta Rivera, Commissioner of Boston Centers for Youth & Families. “We encourage interested families to sign up as soon as possible to guarantee a spot.”

people, especially young women, to join leadership programs to learn about community service, teamwork, accountability, and financial literacy.”

The Easter Season is called the Great 50 Days and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It begins on Easter Sunday and ends on Pentecost Sunday, the 50th day after Easter. It also includes the Ascension of the Lord, which occurs on the 40th day after Easter. The Easter season is a joyful time for celebrating the presence of the risen Christ in the church and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Some Christians

SBCA 4 th Grade News

observe the Easter Octave, which is the eight days from the first to the second Sunday of Easter. The first seven of these eight days are also collectively known as Easter Week. The Easter Octave is concluded by the Second Sunday of Easter, Divine Mercy Sunday. In Christian churches that celebrate the Easter Octave, it marks the beginning of Eastertide referring to the week following Easter, or the fifty days from Easter to Pentecost Sunday.

It is a joyful feast and a special festival season for the church. During Easter Week, on Thursday, April 13, 2023, the students, families, faculty, and staff at South Boston Catholic Academy celebrated a special school Mass celebrating the Easter Octave. Ms. Samantha Guildford’s and Mrs. Patricia Coleman’s 4th grader students did a wonderful job participating in this Mass, as Greeters, Readers

and bringing up the gifts of bread, wine, and water to the Altar. Our SBCA Children’s Choir, led by the Music Teacher, Mr. Carlo Bunyi sounded amazing as they sang the joyful songs of the Easter Season. Father Robert Casey, our Pastor, was the celebrant at this Mass. New families are welcome to email our admissions team at: admissions@sbcatholicacademy. org for more info. about South Boston Catholic Academy.

City Open Space Plan Comment Period Now Open

The Boston Parks and Recreation Department (BPRD) has announced the opening of the comment period for the public to provide feedback on the 20232029 Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP). The plan offers a framework for open space protection and expansion in response to city growth and recreational needs.

The draft plan and comment form are available at boston. gov/open-space-plan for public review. Copies of the draft are also available at the central Boston Public Library in Copley Square and Boston Parks and Recreation Department headquarters at 1010 Massachusetts Avenue. Comments will be accepted via the online form until May 21, 2023.

The Parks Department assessed the current open space system through data analysis, research, mapping and public input. The plan integrates the work of a complementary Parks

Department planning project, the Parcel Priority Plan, which identifies the potential open space value of parcels throughout the city to consider for open space protection of acquisition.

The OSRP analysis leads to a set of goals and a Seven-Year Action Plan that will guide the City’s parks-related work heading towards 2030. The plan will inform investment, programming, operations, citywide initiatives, and evaluation of ongoing policy work.

Analysis of distribution and access to park land and features provides a picture of where investments and park improvements, or expansion, are needed. Public input provides direction on open space needs and priorities which will be incorporated into future park improvement projects as well as management considerations.

Because parks and open spaces are central to the future health, resilience and livability of Boston, the OSRP complements the Climate Ready Boston reports, the Urban Forest Plan, and the Climate Action Plan. These planning efforts share fundamental objectives to improve quality of life while preparing for climate change.
