About 1240 Soldiers Field Road
Brighton, Boston, MA
The property features a 32,635 square foot building home to the Boston Skating Club located in heart of Brighton, MA. The skating rink was constructed in 1938 and sits on a 1.97-acre urban transit-oriented development site that can support a variety of uses.
1240 Soldiers Field Road is directly on the Charles River and is minutes from downtown Boston, Logan Airport, Cambridge, the Mass Pike, and Interstates 95 and 93. The site is also located in proximity to Greater Boston's most prestigious colleges and universities including Harvard University, Boston College, Boston University, MIT and Northeastern University. Additionally, the property is in walking distance to numerous restaurants, hotels, fitness centers, retail and coffee shops. Within a five-mile radius, the area has a growing employee base of over 873,000 employees and 45,840 businesses.
The Davis Companies has proposed a 535-unit apartment building on the site with a 220 car parking garage. A second phase of the project would include the demolition of the neighboring Studio Allston Hotel to be replaced with a new mixed-use building to feature 255 hotel rooms plus 120 condos. A larger public open space between the two buildings would improve the connections between Western Ave. and the Telford overpass to the riverfront.
