38-Story Plan Latest Twist in West End Garden Party

Wednesday, November 21, 2012





The only constant is change at the proposed Nashua Street Residences near TD Garden. Recall that the tower at one point was to be 375 apartments in a building of around 40 floors; then it was 363 condos in a 37-story building; then, in a $50 million deal involving the air rights over the North Station parking garage, new plans emerged for around 500 apartments in a building of similar size, with the number of parking spaces being cut from 270 to 219. Got that?

Well, according to plans revealed on Tuesday, the tower is slated to, in fact, be 38 stories of 503 apartments... that may become condos. Developer AvalonBay isn't so sure and awaits the free market's verdict (the $200 million tower is not expected to be completed until 2016).

The first six floors will include not only parking, but a two-story retail arcade connecting the Nashua Street Residences to both North Station and TD Garden. Then there will be 32 floors of apartments above. Or condos.

First proposed as a 40 story condo tower, then, in 2006 as a 414 ft. 37 story condo tower, Nashua St Residences has been through several edits and now appears closer than ever to getiing underway. No word on the height of this latest 38 story iteration. The original Costas Kondylis design seems to have survived all the rewriting.

Boston officials OK AvalonBay tower near Garden



Quote:
2/15/2013

The Boston Redevelopment Authority has approved construction of 38-story residential tower behind the TD Garden that will include more than 500 apartments, restaurants and stores.

AvalonBay Communities Inc. will build the tower on Nashua Street, filling in empty space between the Garden and the Charles River. The $200 million project, approved by the BRA board Thursday night, also includes construction of a two-story retail arcade that will connect the new tower to Causeway Street and North Station.

Executives with AvalonBay have said they hope to start construction this fall. “We believe the West End neighborhood and, in particular, North Station has tremendous potential to become a true nexus within the city for residents, commuters, and others,” said Scott Dale, AvalonBay’s senior vice president of development.

The project is one of several large developments expected to transform the area around the Garden in coming years with more than 1,800 new residences, hotels, office buildings, stores and restaurants.

Converse Inc. recently committed to move its corporate offices into a large new development at nearby Lovejoy Wharf, and Stop & Shop and Target are considering new stores in a pair of towers being planned in front of the Garden by Boston Properties and Delaware North Cos.

The AvalonBay project, called the Nashua Street Residences, will include a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, and 32 three-bedroom units. The development also includes 219 parking spaces and a terrace on the 35th floor with views of Boston Harbor and the downtown skyline.

The Giant 'What-If' Surrounding the Nashua Street Residences

Quote:
It's one of the tallest new residential developments in all of Boston and a prime example of a major trend driving the city's real estate right now. Nashua Street Residences, the gargantuan (for Boston, at least) 415-foot tower behind TD Garden, broke ground earlier this month after years of on-again, off-again planning. It begins life as apartments: To be precise, the Nashua Street Residences at 121 Nashua Street is slated to include 38 floors of 503 studio, 1-BR, 2-BR and 3-BR apartments as well as amenities (including bicycle storage—for wait for it—503 bikes). Tucked into its descriptive documents with the city, however, is one telling caveat.

Developer AvalonBay, the force behind such recent Boston additions as the Avalon Exeter and the AVA Theater District, put this in its prospectus (per the Boston Redevelopment Authority): "The Proponent anticipates that the residential units will initially be operated as residential apartments but may be converted into condominiums in the future depending on market conditions."

Construction underway for North Station apartments



Quote:
In Boston’s residential building boom, no developer has been busier than AvalonBay Communities Inc. It recently completed an apartment tower in the Back Bay and is developing another in the Theatre District. Other large projects are under construction in Cambridge and Somerville.

Now the company is launching its most ambitious project yet: a 38-story tower at North Station that will be the tallest among a new generation of apartment buildings in Boston. The $250 million complex, to be completed in 2017, will also include retail space in a new passageway between Nashua and Causeway streets.

The 415-foot building will be the first of several towers to rise around the TD Garden, where developers are planning a mix of new homes, restaurants, offices, and stores. On Monday, AvalonBay’s executives will gather with city officials to formally kick off construction, although work on the site has begun.
