566 Columbus Ave. Approved by BPDA
The Boston Planning Board has approved the proposed development project at 566 Columbus Avenue that will replace The Harriett Tubman House. Speaking on behalf of United South End Settlements, the current owner of the property, Maicharia Z. Weir Lytle, President, and CEO discussed the difficult decision to sell the building. She expressed to the board that because of the high costs of maintaining the deteriorating building it is not financially feasible for USES to stay in this location. The sale will allow them to continue to provide services to the community.
The new project from New Boston Ventures will feature 66 condo units including 11 affordable artist live/work spaces along with 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and 42 parking spaces.

Demo Underway for The Exchange South End
Demo has kicked off of the building that formerly housed the historic Boston Flower Exchange to make way for Exchange South End, the upcoming 1.6 million square foot project that, once complete, will be a next-generation life science and technology urban campus. When asked about the timeline for construction of the first phase of the project, The Abbey Group tells BLDUP, "We are actively marketing the project, we are preparing the site and taking steps to be able to go forward with construction. We don't yet have a specific timetable to share."
While the Boston Flower Exchange represented a physical exchange of goods for much of the 20th century, Exchange South End will represent an exchange of ideas, technology, and culture for the 21st. Located in the South End, one of Boston’s most culturally rich and diverse neighborhoods and home to hundreds of nearby restaurants, bars, retail shops, art galleries, and studios, the site will feature four new state-of-the-art laboratory and office buildings, significantly improving the area’s life science and technology infrastructure. Additionally, the campus will feature 22,000 square feet of retail space and 30,000 square feet of community space.It is anticipated that the site’s original wharf granite slabs will be excavated and incorporated into Albany Green, a one-acre publicly accessible open space at the heart of the campus, as benches, walls, and other park features.
