A Guide to Boston’s Non-Local Coffee Chains

Intelligentsia is on the verge of adding a second location in the area, this one in Boston proper, at 225 Franklin St. in the Financial District.

Founded in Philadelphia, La Colombe has since opened locations in New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Boston, starting with a location near South Station, which opened early in 2016. A second location opened in December 2017 in Boston’s Seaport District, at 29 Northern Ave.

    A Guide to Boston's Non-Local Coffee Chains

But this being Boston, we are far from done debating the future of this bridge. The city considers its concept as the starting point for another round of public discussions that will begin this summer to hone the design. It’s a process that probably will take until the end of 2019, and depending on the final proposal, construction could be completed in 2022.

    Mayor Walsh commits $46 million to rebuild Northern Avenue Bridge - The Boston Globe
    For four years it has been a barrier you can't cross, but finally a plan for remaking the historic Northern Avenue Bridge over Fort Point Channel is taking shape. The City of Boston has come up with this concept: an elevated, steel-truss bridge with dedicated lanes for pedestrians, bicyclists, and cars.
