DotBlock gets approval from BPDA

Despite some opposition by residents, a hearing at the BPDA earlier this month to approve the “DotBlock”. The project was  approved to build a mixed-use development that looks to transform a collection of vacant parcels located at the juncture of Dorchester’s Savin Hill, Jones Hill, and Meeting House Hill neighborhoods. The development will include approximately 488 residential units; a mix of apartments and condos, across five mixed-use buildings. DotBlock will also include approximately 23,000 square feet of retail with underground parking for 360 cars. Among DotBlock’s residential amenities will be a pool and fitness facility and around 15,000 sf of green space.

The parcels on which DotBlock will be built front onto Pleasant Street, Hancock Street and Dorchester Avenue, three major Dorchester streets. The DotBlock site is located steps to Savin Hill Station on the MBTA Red Line.

Big Brothers shortage: Consider being a mentor

As a former Big Brother I can attest to how wonderful this organization is and how much good can come out of signing up to be a Big Brother. While I hope that I helped make a difference with the 12 year old I was matched up with for two years (we’ve lost touch in the years that followed), I got more out of the experience than I ever bargained and would recommend men in their 20s and 30s in particular to consider giving of their time as a Big Brother.

In case you are not familiar, the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay is to partner with under-resourced families to provide their children with transformational, one-to-one professionally-supported relationships with caring adult mentors, so that their children will thrive. Unfortunately, according to a JP news article, there are more than 200 children  waiting to be matched with mentors.

If you are interested in learning more about how to become a mentor, visit their website at, www.bbbsmb.org.

Boston restaurant patios now open for patrons

Lately, it seems that we’ve had more than our share of overcast and rainy days, but as the saying goes, April showers – brings May flowers. However, there are a few sunny days expected in the coming week so I thought I should share a great blog post that the folks over at EaterBoston published last month and which they will continue to update that shares restaurants that have opened their patios.

If you’re like me, you love eating and drinking outside but unless you’ve traveled it has probably been several months since you’ve last enjoyed dining al fresco. Check out which restaurant patios are currently open by visiting here.

Changes proposed for Uber or Lyft rides to Logan Airport

Travel, air travel, BostonRight now, if you use a ride sharing app to catch a flight leaving Logan airport you’re dropped off right in front of your terminal, but last week Massport unveiled a plan that would redirect where ride-sharing drivers can drop off and pick up passengers (and of course potentially raising their airport fee to $5.00).

According to Massport figures, last year more than 5 million trips were made by cars driving out of the airport empty after dropping off passengers. The changes suggested are aimed at cutting that number by 30% while at the same time, by centralizing a drop off / pick up area (currently proposed to be at the central parking garage), decrease wait times for passengers and encourage more ride sharing drivers to stay at the airport to pick up customers before leaving.

Nothing has been confirmed as yet. You can read the full article here.

Boston Public Garden

bret clancy, boston skyline, boston winterEstablished in 1837 The Boston Public Garden is a beautiful park in the center of town.

Much thanks to Arts Boston Instagram for posting this picturesque photo of kids playing hockey last month.
