About 112 Shawmut Avenue

South End, Boston, MA

The approved development is a 13-story, 143-apartment residential project with a 980-square-foot ground-floor cafe which would be located at the intersection of Herald Street and Shawmut Avenue in the South End’s rapidly developing New York Streets neighborhood. The development would preserve and incorporate the street-facing facade of an existing six-story, 70,000-square-foot brick-and-beam South End office building, which would be partially demolished.

Amenities at 112 Shawmut Avenue would include a 13th-floor rooftop deck and amenity space and a 9th-floor rooftop terrace, both offering sweeping views of the Boston skyline. Select 7th-floor residences would have private balconies and rooftop terraces.

112 Shawmut Avenue developer The Davis Companies is partnering with neighboring property owners Boston Chinese Evangelical Church (BCEC), owner of the existing three-story building at 120 Shawmut Avenue, and Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA), owner of the existing one-story supermarket at 50 Herald Street, to establish a 1.9-acre Planned Development Area (PDA) across their three parcels, which would allow the three proponents to construct buildings up to 150 feet tall, superseding existing zoning. The proponents would collaborate to create compatible development projects and coordinated streetscape improvements, which could include a new east-west pedestrian connection providing through-block pedestrian connectivity between Washington Street and Shawmut Avenue.

BCEC would construct an 11-story building with 72 residences, religious space and approximately 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and CCBA would construct a 14-story building featuring 302 residences and 14,200 square feet of ground-floor retail. A total of 536 residences would be located across the PDA per the current plans. 

112 Shawmut Avenue would total 192,568 square feet and would include 124 parking spaces provided across three levels, including one below grade. Bicycle storage space would be provided on site. 112 Shawmut Avenue is located steps from The Lucas, a recently completed luxury condominium development set in a historic church, and near multiple recently completed, under construction and approved mixed-use developments including National Development’s Ink Block, Related Beal’s 370-380 Harrison Avenue and UDR’s 345 Harrison

112 Shawmut Avenue is targeting LEED Silver sustainability certification.
