Another Major Project Proposed for TD Garden Area

Just three months after the city approved a 38-story mixed-use development that will be connected to TD Garden, a second major project has been proposed in that area of Boston’s West End neighborhood, also with plans to connect to the arena. Developers Boston Properties Inc. and Delaware North Companies Inc., through the Boston Garden Development Corporation, filed a letter of intent this week with the Boston Redevelopment Authority seeking to construct a mix of retail and office space, hotel rooms and up to 500 residential units on about 2.8 acres of land at 80 Causeway Street. The proposal calls for a new entrance to the arena and MBTA station, up to 300,000 sq. ft. of multi-story retail space, 500 residential units (600,000 sq. ft.), 200 hotel rooms (200,000 sq. ft.) and 600,000 sq. ft. of commercial office space, as well as 800 parking spaces in a below-grade garage, according to a fact sheet submitted with the proposal. The developer is looking to break ground on the project as early as 2014, though the plans first will have to go through large project review with the BRA and other city agencies. The proposal is the second major project in the TD Garden area to come before the BRA within the past year—in February, the board approved plans for Nashua Street Residences, a 38-story apartment and retail tower. That development, proposed by AvalonBay Communities Inc., features 503 residential units and a two story “retail arcade” that will connect to TD Garden and North Station. Construction on this project is expected to begin later this year. The newest proposal seeks to redevelop the site of the former Boston Garden, which has been used for parking since the TD Garden opened in the 1990s, according to a Boston.com report. The building’s height is not mentioned in the documents filed with the BRA on Thursday, but Boston.com speculated that the new project could reach at least 400 feet, which would put it close to the Nashua Residences project at close to 40 stories.
