Linkage is a strange tax, but Boston has strange development rules. The headline is deceiving. The rule is 10% affordable housng. Developers have actually been doing 13%. That's a 30% increase over 10% but when I first saw this article I thought they were raising the affordable housing limit to 30%.

A lot of the affordable housing is not built on the same site as the luxury condo or whatever either. The whole thing is just part and parel with the develoment processs in Boston, very buddy buddy and totally crazy.
