About MassDOT Air Rights Parcels 12 & 15
Proposed mixed-use development at the intersection of Boylston Street and Massachusetts Avenue that would construct two buildings above the Massachusetts Turnpike. On Parcel 12, developed by Samuels & Associates, a new mid-rise residential and retail building would be constructed. On Parcel 15, developed by Weiner Ventures and Prudential Financial, a 439,500-square-foot development known as 1000 Boylston Street would be constructed.
1000 Boylston Street would feature a 32-story, 484-foot-tall condominium tower containing approximately 108 for-sale residences across 27 stories with a five-story podium containing approximately 45,500 square feet of first and second-story retail and restaurant space, a two-story above-grade parking garage containing approximately 175 spaces and a fifth amenities floor. Atop the podium would be a rooftop green space and amenity area for residents. Parking levels would be designed to be capable of conversion to alternative use in the future. Construction of 1000 Boylston Street is expected to commence in mid-2018; the five-story podium would be complete by the third quarter of 2019, and the residential tower would be complete by early- to mid-2022.
The overall Parcels 12 & 15 project would provide an improved connection between the Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods and be the first successful air rights development above the Massachusetts Turnpike since Copley Place’s completion in the mid-1980s.
