Landmark Center Redo Faces Big Vote Today



Quote:
The Boston Redevelopment Authority, will likely weigh in on the redevelopment of Landmark Center in busy, busy Fenway at its board meeting Thursday evening.

Recall that plans call for not only up to 600 luxury apartments on the site but 15,000 square feet of office space and a slew of new retail, too, including Boston's first Wegmans grocery store in a 75,000-square-foot space. The new parts of the Landmark Center would rise from 10 to 12 stories; and there would be an underground garage with 1,500 spaces as well.

This evening's BRA meeting not only offers the prospect of a major leap forward for Samuels & Associates, the Landmark Center's would-be redeveloper, but also a look into its workings under new Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who has vowed changes, big changes, at the city's governing developmental authority.

Meet 345 Harrison Ave.



Quote:
A lot's going on—and up—in that corner of the South End where the Mass. Pike meets I-93: the 160-unit 600 Harrison Avenue, approved by the city just last month; the ginormous Ink Block project with its Whole Foods and its Sepia condos; and the approximately 62-unit 775 Harrison Avenue. Now add 345 Harrison officially to the mix.

Late last week, everyone's favorite rubber stamp, the Boston Redevelopment Authority, O.K.'d a two-building plan for the old Graybar Electric site. Together they will have 602 apartments and up to 33,500 square feet of retail, restaurant and amenity space.

An Extraordinary Opening Night for Berklee’s New State-of-the-Art Tower



Quote:
March 4, 2014

The dedication of Berklee’s new tower at 160 Massachusetts Avenue on Wednesday, February 26, was anything but your standard ribbon-cutting ceremony. For students, the event was a unique interdisciplinary learning experience. For faculty, the dedication represented the dawn of new educational possibilities. For Berklee president Roger H. Brown, it was a deeply personal moment. For all involved, it was the start of something big.

A New Chapter

Featuring Back Bay views that neighbors pay millions for, Berklee’s new 16-story, state-of-the-art skyscraper will provide housing for 370 students. Spanning 14,000 square feet, the complex includes 20 practice rooms, a fitness center, and 10 recording studios that Brown says “rival any in the United States, including commercial enterprises like Lucasfilm and the major Hollywood studios.”

It is amazing the amount of projects going on in the city right now. Even Cambridge is in on it. I will be in Boston on a Saturday in a couple of weeks and can't wait to take a bunch of pics. There is steel, concrete cores and cranes going up all over the city.

NorthPoint's Twenty|20 Apartment Tower Proceeding Nicely



Quote:
The above photo shows the final construction beam being laid in place Wednesday at Twenty|20, the 20-floor apartment building going up at 20 Child Street (get it?) in Cambridge's NorthPoint neighborhood-in-the-making.




Twenty|20 is expected to have 355 luxury apartments as well as 9,000 square feet of commercial space when all is said and done, which is expected to be this time next year. It's not entirely clear what the rents will be, but it is entirely clear that the tower will grow up in Cambridge's newest neighborhood. NorthPoint is slated to drop 5 million square feet of residential, office and retail over 45 acres in the Charlestown borderlands.

Ginormous Financial District Tower Maybe Probably On Again



Quote:
It's one of the biggest what-ifs in recent Boston real estate: a 1,000-foot tower off Federal Street in the Financial District on the site of a city garage and an adjoining building (the original design by Italian starchitect Renzo Piano is rendered above). Pitched by would-be developer Steven Belkin in those prelapsarian days of 2006 and 2007, it would have easily been the tallest tower in Boston—in all of New England—but the Federal Aviation Administration said it was a little too tall for Logan and, besides, the Great Recession came and put the kibosh on any of Belkin's—and the city's—ambitions.

Then! In the summer of 2012 came news that Belkin was meeting with officials in the Menino administration about building at the garage site and at his adjacent building at 133 Federal. Building what exactly, nobody seemed to know. But building something, it certainly looked like. The climate, especially financing-wise, had shifted markedly; and Boston was nothing if not a city of potential spires.

Yet nothing happened and the Menino administration passed into history at the end of 2013 as development around town picked up even more. Now! It looks like Mayor Marty Walsh wants to plunk something formidable between Federal and Devonshire, and his administration is in fresh talks with Belkin.

Per Thomas Grillo at the Boston Business Journal, Hizzoner has set aside monies to demolish the 435-space garage on Devonshire Street. Plus: "We will take the garage down and begin the process of looking for somebody. There was some interest in it in the past and we've reached out to that developer [Belkin] to see if they are still interested ... I believe he still is."

[...]
This supertall proposal went to the wayside after a falling out between Mayor Menino and the developer. With Marty Walsh as mayor and with his newly invigorated and aggressive approach to tower development, this baby may yet see the light of day.

Boston needs more than just one tall building.
