The Hub on Causeway Office Tower Tops Off: Checking in on BLDUP's Most Popular Project
The Hub on Causeway was by far the most visited project page on our site in 2019 with over 32,000 visitors looking to BLDUP for updates on the 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use development. With the final piece of the project, the TAMI tower officially topped off on Friday 12/20, let’s check in with one of Boston’s most significant development projects of the decade. As Bryan Koop, Executive Vice President for Boston Properties pointed out at The Hub's official opening ceremony earlier this year “The Hub combines the best of Boston’s sports, dining, and live music as well as provides jobs and housing at the Northern gateway to the city."
The final beam is raised at 100 Causeway Street, the final phase of the Hub on Causeway
To create an "urban village" The Podium at the Hub on Causeway offers a variety of amenities including the massive Banners Kitchen & Tap that we found hopping on a Friday evening before a Celtics home game. For those visitors in the mood for a margarita, Guy Fieri's Tequila Concina is serving up the Food Network star's distinct Latin street food. Arclight Boston, the chain’s first location in the Northeast, is also now open offering specialty popcorn flavors plus limited previews, a major plus for those of us waiting to see the new Star Wars. Arguably the most important feature of the Hub is Boston's largest urban grocery store, the 60,000 square foot Star Market which opened in September.
Big Night Live, an intimate concent venue for up to 1,500 is also now open. Principal Ed Kane of Big Night Entertainment Group told BLDUP they were attracted to the Hub because of "the sense that this area really was going to be the Hub of the Universe. Not only is it rich in sports history, but it is also at the heart of one of the strongest transportation centers in the city. Another true HUB. Additionally, the location felt iconic to us and that was our goal - to build incredible facilities in iconic locations. We started this process way back in 2014, so it was incredible to see the growth we had hoped for happen right before our eyes. The amount of residences, offices and retail businesses that have sprung up in the area is beyond our wildest projections."
Big Night Live has been receiving rave reviews since its opening this fall.
When asked how the reception has been since opening Kane also tells BLDUP "It's been incredible. We believed that Boston needed a better, more experiential music venue that brought the best in hospitality, sound, lighting, and design. The people of Boston immediately gravitated to Big Night Live and the reviews have been off the charts. The room is a unique hybrid - a music hall, supper club, and night club - and it makes use of the best features in each of those genres. The room plays big but feels small and intimate at the same time. Artists and guests have both loved it thus far."
Along with these restaurant and entertainment spaces The Hub also features the European inspired 270 room citizenM hotel complete with rooftop bar and lounge plus the 440 unit residential tower, Hub50House. Hub50 House welcomed first residents this fall to luxurious homes offering amazing views and amenities. Residents at the building have access to a Skypool and Clubroom, a Skyline Deck featuring a fire pit and grills, a Woof deck and spa, and a fitness center overlooking the Zakim Bridge. Hub15, the 15th floor of the tower is also home to a collection of amenities where residents can enjoy incredible views as they work, play, relax and socialize in comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces.
The residences at Hub50 House offer sleek, modern finishes.
Still to come at The Hub on Causeway, Hub Hall expected to open this winter, a food hall showcasing 18 local eateries and food vendors including favorites Sullivan’s Castle Island, Mike’s Pastry, & Monica's Mercato plus momosan ramen by Morimoto. Construction will also continue on the 31-story tower, set to become Verizon’s headquarters for this region. Tech firm Rapid7, who already occupy 145,000 square feet below the new tower will also add additional space above. At the topping off ceremony, Giuliana DiMambro, Senior Project Manager for Boston Properties noted that this was the final structural milestone for the project which broke ground in 2015. The completion of this tower is expected in mid-2021 wrapping up this game-changing project.
