We last stopped by 42-59 Crescent Street, future home of of a hotel, back in May when a rendering had appeared on site.1 Construction has moved along slowly since then, and a stop work order has been issued on site, with the project in the early foundation stages. Permits filed with the Department of Buildings for a nine-story, 83 unit building with 22,080 square feet of commercial space at an FAR of 5.00.
