In booming Bulfinch Triangle across from North Station, Parcel 1B, a 14-story building developed by Related Beal featuring 239 affordable apartments and a 220-room hotel, topped off this fall. Scheduled for completion in early 2018, Parcel 1B will bring an important affordable housing option to Boston’s downtown core. Learn more about Parcel 1B here.
