The Board of Appeals yesterday approved a six-story, 24-unit apartment building on Dorchester Avenue where it enters Andrew Square. Developer Christopher Roche's building would include ground-floor restaurant space. The building will have no parking, both because of its location on the other side of the square from the Red Line stop. The BPDA approved the project last month. Of the 24 apartments, 22 would be one-bedroom units between 502 and 581 square feet and two studios of less than 345 square feet. Four of the units will be marketed as affordable. Nobody spoke in opposition to the proposal; representatives of several elected officials said the local civic association is looking forward to the replacement of the current auto-glass garage as a way of helping to revive Andrew Square.

The Davis Cos., Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of New England, and Boston Chinese Evangelical Church got the green light for a three-building complex on Shawmut Avenue that will include 536 apartments and condos — at least 139 of them set aside for low- and moderate-income residents — along with a new church, community space, and a park. The partnership between Davis — a large, for-profit developer — and the pair of Chinatown nonprofits was a way to combine efforts and transform a full block of the formerly industrial area where the South End and Chinatown meet.

“This is a demonstration that we have moved forward,” Dave Falvey, the commander of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, told the Globe. “It’s a different council, it’s a different parade.” The hiring of Bryan Bishop, a founder and chief executive officer of OUTVETS, a group formed in 2014 to honor the service of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer military veterans, is a major turning point for an organization that had for years kept veterans in the LGBTQ community from marching in the parade.

    Leader of LGBTQ veterans group will oversee South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade - The Boston Globe
    The leader of a organization representing veterans who identify as LGBTQ will oversee planning for next year's South Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade, marking a dramatic break in an annual event that gained national notoriety for efforts to bar gay veterans from marching.

"The city’s first responders logged thousands of ambulance runs and administered lifesaving Narcan at a record pace last year as Boston emerged as a mecca for out-of-town opioid addicts, shocking new statistics show. Police and medical experts warn that 2018 could be just as bad with no signs the drug epidemic is letting up... ...Ambulance crews recorded a staggering 3,557 “Narcotic Related Illness” transports to city hospitals last year, according to Boston Emergency Medical Services statistics — up from 2,848 the year before [a 20% increase in one year]... ...Narcan was administered 1,913 times last year, EMS reported. It was the highest tally for the overdose-reversing drug in the last five years — a factor that is credited with driving the number of opioid deaths down slightly to 187 in 2017 from 193 the year before in Boston, mirroring a similar statewide drop. Police believe cheap heroin — often laced with the even cheaper synthetic opioid fentanyl — is drawing addicts to Boston... ...But those EMS statistics, obtained by the Herald yesterday, show the Hub is a magnet for heroin users — with Massachusetts Avenue’s so-called Methadone Mile in the South End the epicenter of the epidemic."
