  1. 60% AMI is 900? I remember not long ago when that would be around 700-750. The market is ludicrously overvalued especially since there’s still a pandemi. And 550 is still incremental considering the average salary around Far Rock is about 40 Grand.

    Oh and when you do these stories please stress how many market rate apartments there are. Because the ratio is way higher for them.

  2. Who the hell lives in that room in that last pic? Donnie Darko?

Except I highly doubt that will happen As either it will be completely gentrified or completely low income . The pictures to me are a fantasy but I can be proven wrong .

  18. I live right down the block from here and I’m wondering what they plan to do about all the mentally ill and homeless people wandering around right across the street from these beautiful buildings?
