Mayor Menino Announces 45 Stuart St Approved by BRA Board



Quote:
The BRA board unanimously approved the construction of a 29 story building that will tie together the Downtown, Chinatown, and Theater District neighborhoods. The $125 million project will add approximately 404 new residences to the area answering Mayor Menino’s calls for more housing in the area, including 40 on site affordable units.

The 384,000 square foot “L”-shaped building will replace a surface parking lot at 41-45 Stuart Street. The 404 housing units will be located on floors six through 29 and include studios and one and two bedrooms. The residences will provide new opportunities for a variety of income levels to complement the surrounding cultural, medical, and educational activities. A 198 spot parking garage will be located on the first five floors of the building and 89 of them will be available to the public.

The development site is located next door to Jacob Wirth’s, a historic restaurant that has been at that location since 1878. An innovative 5-story glass curtain wall facing onto Stuart Street will align with the façade of the neighboring establishment and mask separate vehicle and pedestrian entrances to the building. Inviting signage and lighting at the Stuart Street pedestrian entrance will be an iconic addition to the streetscape and create a vibrant walking zone. Pedestrians will be able to cut through the building from Stuart Street to LaGrange Street.

45 Stuart and Its Five-Story Glass Curtain to Start Rising



Quote:
Tuesday, February 19, 2013, by Tom Acitelli

Construction on the 29-story apartment tower at 45 Stuart Street that the Menino administration says "will tie together the Downtown, Chinatown, and Theater District neighborhoods" could start before April. Per Greg Turner in The Herald, developer AvalonBay, which just last week won city approval for the Nashua Street Residences behind TD Garden, has gotten a foundation permit for 45 Stuart and could start construction "within the next 30 days or so."

Meet AVA Theater District and Its Bike-Repair Room



Quote:
One of the more gorgeous-looking of Boston's many, many residential projects planned or under way right now is 45 Stuart Street. There, on a parking lot next to Jacob Wirth, the developer behind the Avalon Exeter and 77 Exeter Street plans a $175M, 500,000-square-foot apartment tower reaching as high as 30 stories; it will have 398 studios, 1-BRs and 2-BRs as well as a five-story, 198-space parking garage. Which is where the gorgeous-looking part comes in: Those five floors will be sheathed in a glass curtain that opens just so for a pedestrian walkway connecting Stuart and LaGrange streets.

---

No word yet on what the rents might be, but the AVA Theater District is supposed to be finished in 2015, which seems eons away in this Boston rental market.

The Boston Globe is reporting that the 12th floor collapsed down to the 5th floor this morning.

I actually think this one is (currently) looking great. If the totally unclad wing isn't a complete dud, I think this is going to end up a solid 7/10.























Not enough blocking with this last pic!
