135 wells aveSometimes in the middle of the debate over 135 Wells Ave.  Austin Street  and similar projects in  neighboring communities, the discussion will turn to:

But who is possibly going to want to live in those places and be able to afford the rents?

One answer is: Tech workers.

Or so this survey in the Boston Business Journal suggests.

The innovation economy is hot and, in many cases,  the people who work in technology, bio-tech and other hot industries  want a good place to live but don’t necessarily want a house with a yard and a garage.    And they aren’t necessarily even married or have children yet.

With rising rents and growing congestion in Kendall Square and downtown Boston we know that more companies are looking to move to the inner suburbs — but only if their employees can find a nice places to live as well.
