Check Out the Giant Ice Rink and Other Harbor Garage Plans



Quote:
Developer Don Chiofaro on Wednesday unveiled fresh plans for the redevelopment of the Boston Harbor Garage. Recall his earlier plans stalled amid skittishness about the height (what else?) and a public feud with then-Mayor Tom Menino. Well, Menino's out of office and height's not such a scary thing in downtown Boston anymore. So there was Chiofaro & Co. with plans for two skyscrapers, one 600 feet and the other 500 feet.

The towers together would hold 700,000 square feet of office space; a luxury hotel with between 250 and 300 rooms; 120 condos; three levels of retail and restaurants; and 1,400 parking spaces. All total, we're talking 1,300,000 square feet on the waterfront.

Plus! As a deal sweetener, Chiofaro is offering to build out "Harbor Square," a "four-season programmable open space with roof that can be closed seasonally." At its widest point, it would be 167 feet across, "large enough," the developer says, "to comfortably accommodate the Rockefeller Center ice rink." Neat.

[...]



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here's Why the Harbor Garage Towers Are Likely to Happen



Quote:
A major reason we're even talking about the skyscraper plans unveiled Wednesday for the Harbor Garage is that we've been here before. Developer Don Chiofaro, whose firm has owned the property since 2007, once had plans for even giant-er towers in place of the aged, ugly garage. In 2012, however, after an often rancorous back and forth with the developer, the city, then under the Menino administration, put the kibosh on the proposals. It's been a slow slog back ever since for Chiofaro, who on Wednesday spelled out details for two skyscrapers, one reaching to 600 feet, and a raft of public amenities, including a giant arcade with a retractable roof.

Such public-friendly flourishes have surely impressed the new sheriff in town, Mayor Marty Walsh. According to The Globe's Casey Ross, the Walsh administration "is open to tall buildings on the site of the Harbor Garage, as long as developer Donald J. Chiofaro's plan also provides adequate open space and public access to the water." Given that Chiofaro has said he would tweak the plans even further with more public input, it's likely the mayor will get the opportunity to put his own stamp on the project, thus ambling away with a victory he can point to years down the road, during construction and certainly afterward.

Moreover! The plans for Chiofaro, who did not support Walsh in last year's election (but, hey, bygones, right?), also gel with what Walsh has often stated is his meta-goal for the city: growth. "I want Boston to grow," he told The Herald this week. "In order for me to improve the schools and do all the things I want to do, we have to create growth. I don't want to raise taxes. I want to raise taxes through new development." Plus: Hizzoner has said he wants to re-conceptualize the city's skyline, including with taller buildings toward its edges.

[...]

Brighton's Massive Boston Landing Wants to Add Housing



Quote:
More big doings in Boston's next It Neighborhood: Sneaker kingpin New Balance wants to add housing to its massive Boston Landing project in Brighton. The Herald's Donna Goodison has the details: "The Boston company is seeking city approval for up to 295,000 square feet of residential space by adding an approximately 2-acre parcel at 125 Guest Street to the development scope. It purchased the property for $10 million in February."

Recall that Boston Landing is already slated to include a 250,000-square-foot HQ for New Balance as well as a 345,000-square-foot sports complex with an NHL-regulation arena and a 175-room hotel; there will also be up to 650,000 square feet of office space spread amongst three buildings; 1,750 parking spaces; and 65,000 square feet of retail (though this amount might shrink).

Once again good updates. So much for NIMBYism in Boston.

Speaking of Boston NIMBYS...

Harbor Towers: 600 Feet High, Are You Crazy? This Is Boston!



Quote:
Waterfront condo complex Harbor Towers is having none of developer Don Chiofaro's plans for the Harbor Garage. And, if you don't know the reason residents are skittish on the proposed high-rises, then you have not been paying attention.

Thomas Grillo at the Business Journal has the goods: "In a letter to the Boston Redevelopment Authority and Mayor Martin J. Walsh, residents of the two towers of more than 1,000 people at India Wharf said the massive project is too big for the sensitive waterfront site." (Emphasis is ours.)

The letter hints that, instead of building his two towers to (gasp!) 600 and 537 feet, Chiofaro should stick near or below a 200-foot limit set for the Greenway and immediate surroundings. Meanwhile, another advisory group, the Downtown Waterfront Municipal Harbor Planning Advisory Committee, roundly praised Chiofaro's plans.

I understand the want of a 200 foot limit near the greenway (park space) but I also really like that building.
