Wide department stores, restaurants, souvenir shops, general retail stores, and street vendors can all be found here.

What’s the biggest story of the week? The old 20-acre Bayside Expo Center site in Dorchester, as well as an adjacent 12-acre plot at 2 Morrissey Boulevard, were the subject of preliminary plans. A developer has proposed a new development of 5.9 million square feet, with 1,740 housing units. This will be one of the most significant events in Boston’s recent history.
Proponents of a 14-building development in Newton’s Upper Falls that would include 800 housing units secured a crucial vote on Tuesday that advances the contentious proposal. Following City Council approval in December, some residents became concerned about its extent and forced a public vote. Work on the demolition is now scheduled to begin this year.
Now to Downtown Crossing, where the developer behind the long-awaited building at Washington and Bromfield streets has unveiled its third proposal for the site: a 21-story, 424,400-square-foot office building with no parking. The first proposal for One Bromfield was shelved due to the Great Recession, and the second was shelved due to traffic problems.
