Finally a comprehensive thread for Boston construction. Also, there's the Boston Apple store in Back Bay (a very historic neighborhood of Boston) which is nearing completion:






(both images a few months old, by now they've done the interior and all they have left is the facade)

One Kenmore, a development near Fenway Park (Boston's baseeball park, very historic) over an ugly highway.



This is going to build over number 7 in this pic:

NorthPoint: a huge master-planned mixed-use development just north of downtown Boston. It includes commercial, residential, and a stunning new all-glass metro station. It used to be stalled due to NIMBYism (neighbors complaining) and fights between the developers. It just got restarted since it got sold to another developer. :







First buildings complete:

There's also a lot of infill in Boston (small projects that fill gaps in neighborhoods by building on less dense lots). Here's The Bryant (in the South End, replaces a one story commercial building:





And here's FP3, a new residential project in Fort Point, a historical neighborhood which is getting revitalized:


Here's Avenir, an infill project on the site of a demolished highway and elevated metro line:









Here's Battery Wharf, a luxury residential and hotel project which involved reconstructing a wharf so it will support the higher weight of Battery Wharf:

Great job putting this thread together. Boston has one of the best collections of new projects in the United States. I didn't see a single proposal posted here that I didn't like

A new Boston thread! Good work. Anybody able to snap some pics of the SST site? I went through the station a couple weeks ago, didn't see any construction. The tower comes out of the station, correct?

I love all of this; I'm so glad I go to college in Boston! But just one minute--where's the love for Northeastern?

I don't know the name of the new building, but we're getting a new 24-story dorm built on campus, right behind the Ruggles Station. Here's some progress pics I took on my phone. (Sorry if they're sideways)

There is not much to show yet. They are doing prep work. I believe that construction will start in March or April. And I am not 100% sure if it is rising on top of South Station or over the rail lines directly behind it.

MIT, BC, Harvard, Suffolk, UMASS and Berkley all have expansion plans with mid-rise and highrise proposals. No renders yet. There is a garage on the water front that a developer is proposing to redevelop. It is probably going to be between 450 and 600 feet. There is a 500 foot condo tower being talked about next to the Prudential Tower as well, though that will probably be knocked down in height. It's definitely exciting. Boston actually has some large developments U/C or proposed. Were are not used to this!

New high-rise condos in the West End Apartments. This project includes filling in the park in this "towers in the park" development with residential highrises (10-14 stories) and lowrises (3 stories). The existing towers in this development soar up to 40 stories high.
