Fan Pier Update
The Fallon Company, developer of the nine-building Fan Pier in the Seaport District, proposes to eliminate a previously approved waterfront hotel next to the 100 Northern Avenue office building from the project, replacing the hotel with housing, and construct an office building next to the nearly-complete 50 Liberty condominium building. Citing the economic infeasibility of building a hotel on the site, known as Fan Pier Parcel H, Fallon proposes to instead construct either 155 to 170 condominiums or 225 to 245 apartments. The previously approved hotel would have included 150 hotel rooms with condominiums above. As required by law, the Parcel H building will include over 23,500 square feet of civic and cultural space and a new water transportation terminal. The office building, which would be built on Fan Pier Parcel E, would contain 300,000 square feet of office space, instead of 150,000 square feet of office space and 150,000 square feet of lab space as previously approved, and would also include ground-floor retail. Fallon has filed plans for its’ proposed changes to Fan Pier with the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA), who is now reviewing the plans.
