Taj Boston Update
Letter of Intent Calls for Renovations at Taj Boston
A Letter of Intent has been filed on behalf IREP Newbury Hotel, LLC, an affiliate of Highgate Hotels calling for renovations at the historic Taj Boston on 15 Arlington Street in the Back Bay.
The Project contemplates interior renovations that include updating the existing hotel guest rooms, creating 12 additional hotel guest rooms, modifying the interior corridors and the existing connection to an adjacent building, permanently enclosing the existing seasonal rooftop restaurant, and additional interior public space enhancements.
The Project also proposes to relocate the main entrance of the hotel from Arlington Street to Newbury Street. This new main entrance and related improvements will enhance the public realm by creating a raised, accessible entry, illuminating the public right-of-way, refurbishing the existing canopy on Arlington Street, adding street trees, and adjusting the existing grade change of the sloped sidewalk in front of the hotel to improve overall access.
