This photo shows 6th St. between Allston and Yale, the street that would more than likely be pressed into service for the 2 Alexan-brand apartment midrises that Trammell Crow has said it plans to build here. Alexan Heights, the first of the 5-story, 300-odd-unit complexes to be announced, would take up much of the lot to the north to the hike and bike trail near 7th; Alexan Yale, the second, which neighbors seem to have found out about just last week, would take up much of the lot to the south to 5th.
