Owners Paul Lynch and Tim BuckleyThe Quiet Man Pub, a Southie watering whole since Whitey was running the streets, is being bought on February 6th by Paul Mustone, a South Boston developer.  His plan is to “build a 100,000-square-foot residential complex on the site. The Residences at 11 West Broadway will house 64 condominiums and will have 5,000 square feet of street-level retail space,” he said.

Many local residents who have been patrons of the Quiet Man Pub for years say it’s the end of an era. 

“It’s too bad,” said David Converse, a 37-year-old electrician from South Boston.  “It’s the end of the neighborhood,” he said.

Others do not see it this way.  With the recent development of the MaCallen and Court Square Press lofts by Pappas Properties and the current construction next door of the Allele, this neighborhood is being re-born, not destroyed.
