49 Unit Project Approved in East Boston
The development plans for 205 Maverick Street have been approved by the Boston Planning Board. The plans call for a 5 story building to include 49 rental units and 3,100 sf of ground floor retail (to house the Maverick Street Market currently on the site). At the planning board meeting, the development team noted they have increased the affordable units within the project to 7, above the cities required percentage.
C9’s facade is nearing completion. Windows have been almost fully installed along the building’s future office and ground-floor retail spaces. New heating and electrical systems have been installed to C9’s rear.
Interior work continues; C9 will contain an open floor plan configured for innovation and collaboration. C9 will be a great addition to Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood and the Seaport Innovation District. New photographs of C9 are posted above.
In other news, The Fort Pointer reports that neighboring 7 Channel Center may soon be redeveloped. Per The Fort Pointer’s tweet, a 23-story, 243 foot tall residential tower will be proposed with 272 units including 20 artist units. The Fort Pointer also reports that the building’s architect might be Handel Architects, who also designed Millennium Tower in Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood. 7 Channel Center is owned by Berkeley Investments, who is C9's owner and developer. Stay tuned as this exciting Fort Point project evolves.
Significant progress is being made at C9. Restoration work and installation of new windows has given C9's historic facade a new shine and a strong presence on Channel Center Street. Columbia Construction and MacKay Construction Services are doing stellar work at C9, and we look forward to observing the talented team's continued progress.
