Giant Copley Place Tower Almost There



Quote:
It's on: Everybody's favorite rubber stamp, the Boston Redevelopment Authority, is set Thursday to O.K. the 52-story addition to Copley Place.

Recall that the 625-foot tower, which would be the tallest majority-apartment building in New England, was originally approved back in November 2011, despite vociferous opposition over its luxury bent and its potential shadows. There was even an Occupy the Mayor's Office movement (remember those cats?). Then, about a year later, developer Simon Property Group, most famed for its mall-building, suspended development, saying it wanted to reevaluate the project.

Then! Simon unveiled fresh plans in the early summer, this time for a tower of 433 apartments and 109 condos (the 2011 plans called for a 47-story tower with 318 condos, period) as well as expanded retail at the base. There's still some tussling over the affordable-housing component of the Copley Place Tower, though (another) BRA O.K. seems inevitable.

I believe Copley was approved. Exciting news. Hopefully they can get started on it soon. If this, Trinity, CSC get built, Back Bay will have some great additions to this part of the skyline.

Copley Place was an unexpected treat. I thought for sure it was stalled indefinitely! So many towers on tap....

South Station Re-Imagined



Quote:
DOWNTOWN—The state would like your input on how to redo South Station: "Bringing in more light, opening up space inside the station, offering better services and facilities for passengers, and unrolling better technology for rider information are just some of the ideas that MassDOT officials say they are kicking around."

Here's my humble suggestion: add an 80 story tower!

Approved!

Boston Says Yes to Harvard's Allston Expansion



Quote:
Bring it: The Boston Redevelopment Authority on Thursday approved Harvard's 1.4 million-square-foot expansion into Allston, capping eons of debate and igniting at least a decade of development, give or take.

Recall that the original plan was for 10 million square feet of new space in total. More than that, Harvard's push into Allston was meant to slake the university's demands for a half-century, a sweeping vision of long-term town-gown planning, including reconfigured bridges over the Charles River; lots of new undergraduate housing; and a performing-arts pavilion at Barry's Corner.

Then! The Great Recession stepped into the picture and community (and political) concerns proved especially vociferous. So 10 million square feet shrank to 1.4 million.

About time. The waste of space we see everyday along Western Ave has been driving us all crazy here on campus. It's such a deadzone once you step off campus unless you're heading into Cambridge.

Awesome stuff Boston! But, I thought a liberal city in a state with obamaromneycare was supposed to be a failure? LOL.

Seriously, great projects for truly great city!

I hate to be a debbie downer - but those existing buildings are spectacular. But this looks like a cheap and disorganized attempt at adaptive reuse. Its really sad to see some of those annex buildings demolished (to the right of the photo). They are amazing.
