The first truckloads of debris leave the old Royal Friend Chicken site in mid-November 2015.

The wrecking ball swung down on the old Royal Fried Chicken shop last Monday to begin work on 21 units of new housing and ground-floor retail.

The development by Boston Properties, was approved after community meetings by the Boston Redevelopment Authority in January.  Attorney Joe Hanley — who represented 3200 Washington St LLC –  was responsible for project overview and permitting. The apartment house is being designed by Studio 47 Architects.
