West End

The West End, considerably impacted by Urban Renewal of the 1950's and 60's, is a small but significant community tucked behind Beacon Hill. Drivers on Storrow Drive recognize the West End from the famed signs outside the West End Condominiums and Apartments  that read "If You Lived Here...You'd Be Home Now." Historically an ethnically diverse and vibrant neighborhood, the West End today is economically anchored by Massachusetts General Hospital.

  • Public Improvement Commission Hearings 06-11-15
    The Boston Public Improvement Commission (PIC) is the owner and regulator of the City's rights of way. The PIC plays an integral role in the City's development and permitting process. From the restaurant that wants to add a seasonal cafe on the public sidewalk, to the developer who wants to construct an underground parking garage for a new housing development, or the homeowner who wants to add an architectural feature to a house that juts into the public space, each must seek approval from the PIC to have its private venture occupy public space, either permanently or on a licensed basis.
