Steel Framing Rapidly Rising for Final Phase of The Hub on Causeway

Steel framing is rapidly progressing for the final phase of the Hub on Causeway, the 650,000 square feet office tower. Verizon has already committed to a lease of 440,000 square foot within the building. Elsewhere in the project interior work is ongoing for the residential tower, citizenM hotel, and the office and commercial spaces in the podium.

The citizenM hotel is expected to open in mid-September and fit-outs are also ongoing for the Star Market, what will be Boston's largest supermarket, along with the ArcLight theater with both expected to open this fall as well.

Leasing is also underway for the residential units, 440 in total, which feature Italian cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, Silestone countertops, and in-unit laundry. Residents at Hub 50 House will have access to an array of luxury amenities including a fitness center overlooking the Zakim Bridge, a game & media room, outdoor deck, Skypool, and Woof Deck.

The Hub on Causeway is progressing nicely and getting taller.  Boston Properties recently submitted to the city that they would like to change the height of one of the towers from 420 feet to 495 feet to meet the changing needs of the marketplace.  

This transformative mixed use project will be adding to the already changing neighborhood.  Rising from a lively podium, office, residential and hotel towers will house premium entertainment venues, specialty retailers, high-concept dining and loft-style office space to result in a work/live/play “city within a city.” A steel-and-glass structure reminiscent of the district’s original railways forms the façade of the eight-story gateway, which connects directly to the North Station transportation hub. 

It is also rumored that Verizon's new brand Oath will be an anchor tenant as reported by major news outlets recently.
