Reports GlobeSt.com this morning, a high-rise abutting Stevens Park Golf Course has a new owner, a Boston-based investment group, which plans on turning Wedgewood Tower into the far sexier-monikered Indigo. From the sound of it, the mixed-use development will be a little bit of everything -- including a "'hip, urban' tower for the revitalized neighborhood and nearby Bishop Arts District" that will include "a coffee shop and higher-end restaurant tailored for residents," along with fancy-pants retail. But the owners are going to take their time doing the redo, so no breath-holding yet; says one, "We will sit and wait as the area changes." --Robert Wilonsky
