The plan is to knock down the existing, and beautiful I might add, buildings in June to add that generic block above.

Thanks for sharing all those photos! Awesome to see what's going on along the rest of the Northeast Corridor.

Why is the Neilsen Street parking structure being torn down? What's the proposal that they're planning on replacing it with?

I really hope they’re not extending that street through the middle of the property...

Isn't that the pedestrian street at the centerpiece of this project?

Yup. So they will be 'extending' the street, but it will be closed to vehicular traffic. It will be a pedestrian plaza.

The building at 78 Easton Avenue, which replaces a small 3 story offic building, will be 9 stories or 115 feet tall. It will contain 181 apartments, 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail, and many amenities. It is financed by a Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes (PILOT) tax break for 30 years during which it will pay $1,100,000 a year. The current building paid $74,727 a year as the site was mostly parking.

Okay. I knew that was the proposal (as per the renderings) but was beginning to get concerned

Nice find!!! That will be an amazing addition to that area...will really stretch the city further out and give it some dimension beyond the small downtown area. I like it!

Street photo is mine, overhead photo from the developer.

Construction has reached street level. Sidewalk looks way too small. Previous building had a very nice set back. This one looks ready to create a nasty wind tunnel.

I am assuming that they lined the front of the building up with the adjacent buildings. The sidewalk should be the same width as for them. It is better than a pointless setback which would become a fenced in grass area. Hopefully they will get rid of the bulge in the road that made a loading dock. According to the renders, the front facade will line up with the adjacent buildings.

^ Fenced off shrubs. If it were that large of a setback on the new building, it would either be a pavement loop for a drop-off zone or it would be a grassy area surrounded by an 8 foot black iron fence. Both are terrible for a downtown area from an urban planning perspective.

If they were to honestly create an inviting plaza, the setback would be okay. If not, keep the building close to the sidewalk edge at ground level to maintain the street wall. Set the tower itself back to create a podium.
