Harbor Garage Opponents Present Smaller, Shorter Options



Quote:
The proposals for the big-time redevelopment of the Boston Harbor Garage seem destined to change now because of vociferous community opposition. After an initial burst of optimism last summer that something would finally be built worthy of the prime waterfront location, it looks like the original two-tower plan, including one of more than 600 feet, will be scrapped in favor of something smaller or at least significantly different.

The latest bit adding to the aura of inevitable change comes via a recent presentation hosted by the Boston Redevelopment Authority. That presentation included renderings of alternative scopes and designs for the Harbor Garage site:
The NIMBY-approved alternative could be complete crap!

Here We Go Again with Long-Stalled Fenway Center



Quote:
Developer John Rosenthal has been trying for eons to construct the five-building mega-complex known as Fenway Center at Brookline and Commonwealth avenues in the busy, busy neighborhood of similar name. Yet each leap forward for the apartment-and-retail development has proved short-lived, whether because of financial constraints or persnickety neighbors. Well, Rosenthal is trying again, this time with a notable new name in the mix.

The Globe's Casey Ross reports that Rosenthal is pursuing a partnership with Gerding Edlen that "could finally jump-start construction of the $550 million complex" slated to rise in part over the Mass. Pike. You know Gerding Edlen: They're the hip Portland, Ore.-based developer behind such Boston projects as 315 on A in Fort Point (and its 20-Minute Living concept) and the recently ground-broken 6 New Street in Eastie. Whether Gerding Edlen's presence moves Fenway Center forward remains to be seen. But Rosenthal already has the support of the Walsh administration, the state and the Mass. DOT. All systems go. Again.

Nothing Stopping East Boston's 6 New Street Project Now



Quote:
Everyone knows that East Boston is having a moment. Further evidence comes in the form of an official groundbreaking scheduled for Wednesday morning: that of 6 New Street, the waterfront development that almost didn't happen.

Recall that as 2014 dawned, the 4-acre eyesore at 6-26 New Street sat dormant. The site, which included an old industrial building, had been all set to be redeveloped into a complex with 163 apartments, dozens of hotel rooms and a water-taxi landing—a big, bold exclamation point at the end of the city's plans for Eastie's waterfront in general. Well, those plans just kind of came and went with the outgoing Menino administration, and the New Street site itself kind of languished in financial limbo.

Enter Portland, Ore.-based developer Gerding Edlen. The folks behind Fort Point's Factory 63 and its innovation units as well as 315 on A and its 20-Minute Living stepped in in January with similarly ambitious plans at what's now being called, simply, 6 New Street: up to 259 studio, 1-BR and 2-BR apartments in two buildings, one 16 stories, the other seven four; a new water-taxi dock; up to 155 parking spaces; and a 12-foot-wide extension of the Harbor Walk in that area.

MassDOT Considers Move To Tremont Crossing Development



Quote:
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is negotiating to move its downtown Park Square offices to a $350 million development in Roxbury, a blockbuster deal that could shake up the real estate markets in both neighborhoods.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority on Thursday was scheduled to take up a land transfer that would pave the way for construction of a new State Transportation Building in the long-delayed Tremont Crossing project near Dudley Square and Ruggles Station.

That would free up its current headquarters at the heart of Park Square. The block-long Transportation Building is likely to trigger huge interest from the city’s real estate community. Emerson College has already said it would like to acquire or lease space in the massive building.

Meanwhile, the state agency’s relocation to Tremont Street, across from the Boston Police Department headquarters, would offer a huge boost to steadily unfolding efforts to revitalize Roxbury. In addition to helping fill parcels that have been vacant for decades, the transportation building would bring thousands of office workers to the neighborhood, at a time when several developments would add dozens of retail stores, several hotels, and hundreds of homes to that section of Roxbury.

Governor Deval Patrick has been trying to finalize the deal in the waning days of his administration.

I have the hardest time orienting myself in images of Boston. I feel like the skyline doesn't have a well defined nucleus or boundary, but I think that is an awesome characteristic. I hope to visit and get familiar with some of the perspectives in these images.

Don't worry, it all makes perfect sense after you have explored the hell out of it for about 5 years straight. Otherwise, I could see why you might have some confusion!

One analogy I like to make is if you gave a kindergartener a ruler and told them to draw a grid, you get Cambridge. Then if you take the ruler away, you get downtown Boston!

It's actually not too complicated. The bulk of the skyline is in the financial district, but the tallest towers are, and will be, along Boylston St. Knowing the geography definitely helps .

TOO MUCH GLASS!

Old Boston is beautiful. But glass curtained skyscrapers are too common and are diluting the good architecture. They don't say Boston. While I am glad to see people moving back to American cities I wish the buildings were more interesting.

Well we don't have much glass in Boston so that's fine...

Boston's Tallest Building in Nearly 40 Years to Break Ground



Quote:
We have known for more than half a year that 1 Dalton Street, the tallest part of the mega-project in the Christian Science Plaza, would stretch to 699 feet when it's finished. That is a phenomenal height by both contemporary and historical standards—contemporary because it's damned near impossible to build anything taller than 200 feet in Boston these days; and historical because no new building has soared so high since the Hancock was finished in the mid-1970s. Here it comes, though.

Cambridge-based developer Carpenter & Company will formally break ground on the 61-story spire on Wednesday at 6PM. Also in attendance will be execs from the Four Seasons as the tower shall officially be known as the Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences One Dalton Street, with both the 211 hotel rooms and 180 condos inside eligible for the same hospitality services.
