April 10, 2008
 

1. 1203 Adams Street. Kiley catering building on Adams Street. A developer has proposed a plan to turn property into a Dunkin' Donuts with drive-through. This project has encountered resistance from civic and merchant leaders.

2. 1126 Washington Street. Molloy's funeral home and adjacent properties on Washington Street are for sale, according to family member Dan Molloy.

3. 2261 Dorchester Ave. Donovan's Village bar and restaurant‚and a residence at the rear of this property have been on the market for several years, but several civic leaders say a deal may be close to sell the property.

4. 40 River Street. Schoolhouse Condos. The former site of the historic Israel Stoughton school on River Street has recently been converted into a 62-unit condominum complex.

5. 2 Adams Street. Brockton-based STF Enterprises, represented by Milton attorney Ned Corcoran, will begin work soon on a two-phase project to convert two former Baker mill buildings into condos. The second-phase of the project, still under review by Milton town officials, calls for the construction of a five-story, mixed-use building along River Street in what is now the parking lot of Extra Space Storage Co. The new building will house a restaurant, condos and office space for UMass-Boston.

6. Wharf Street, Milton. A new restaurant will take up residence in the first floor of a condo complex at Milton Landing later this year.

7. 1245 Adams Street. The Winn Development company is presently at work to convert this former Baker Mill building into a second phase of apartments and condos along the Neponset River.

8. 1100 Washington Street. Louis Hadaya, who owns a Boston replacement window company, is currently - and very slowly - building a three story office building on this corner lot, which once housed a Lower Mills veterans' post.

9. 1153 Washington Street. Formerly the Lil' Peach convenience store, bought this year by Spuckies n' Pizza owner Ted Retzos, who hopes to convert store into a higher-end store.
