Boylston St is no Western Ave but...

Banker & Tradesman reports that a low-rise hotel on Boylston St (a Howard Johnson rather similar to the Days Hotel in our neighborhood that abuts Western Ave, Everett St, and Soldiers Field Rd). Replacing the HoJo on this 1.4 acre parcel is a proposed 350,000 sq ft of hotel, residential, and retail in two 12 story buildings.

Granted, Western Ave doesn't have the cachet of Fenway Park that they have over on Boylston St, but we do have the river and Harvard nearby which should be worth something. But these days Boylston has the momentum and Western Ave has a stalled Science Complex.
