Developers Win Air Parcel Rights to Build 32-Story Tower


Samuels & Associations and Weiner Ventures won the rights to build a 32-story hotel, apartment and retail complex near the Hynes Convention Center stop in the Back Bay.

The state Department of Transportation announced Monday that it awarded the air rights parcels above and along Interstate 90 at the intersection of Boylston Street and Massachusetts Avenue for a mixed-use tower. The 99-year lease agreement is valued at $ 18.5 million in rent for the two parcels.

In one spot, the developers will build a 400-foot high-rise hotel and residential building, which will be set back from Boylston Street with a low-rise retail building along the street. 

In the other, they will construct a mid-rise residential building on Boylston Street and a two-floor retail building that will cross the Turnpike along Massachusetts Avenue.  

Altogether, the $ 360 million project will create a total of 230 residential units, a 270-room hotel, and 50,000 square feet of retail space. read more

Apartment Tower Near TD Garden Approved

AvalonBay Communities Inc. filed plans with the Boston Redevelopment Authority in late November 2012 for a $  200 million development near TD Garden—a tower featuring more than 500 apartments and a two-story “retail arcade” that connects to TD Garden and to North Station. CBT Architects is designing the project.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority has given the go-ahead for a developer to construct a new 38-story apartment and retail tower near the TD Garden.

The board voted unanimously on Feb. 14 to approve the AvalonBay Communities Inc. project—Nashua Street Residences—which features 503 residential units ranging from studio to three-bedroom apartments and a two-story “retail arcade” that connects to TD Garden and North Station.

In 2006, the developer received BRA approval to construct a building with 363 units—a mix of condominiums and apartments. But economic conditions had put the project on hold until recently. The latest proposal was filed in November.

Proponents of the project said at the Feb. 14 BRA meeting that they had met with several neighborhood groups to review the plans and that they had listened when residents suggested they change some of the smaller units to three-bedroom units, giving families more housing options in the area. read more
