Developers of a project at 401 West First St. that has been scrutinized by residents and local publications went before the South Boston community Saturday morning to lay out the numbers for the project.

At the meeting, which was held at the South Boston VFW in Andrew Square, Gregg Donovan and his attorney David Merritt spoke with residents about the project, the makeup of the units, and what the community can expect from construction crews.
