Developer withdraws private club proposal for 29 Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay, will instead pursue luxury residential conversion
Hexagon Properties, who proposed last summer to convert the 11-story, 40,106-square-foot office building at 29 Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay into an 800-member private club, has withdrawn the proposal and intends to convert the building into luxury residences instead. Area residents had opposed the conversion of 29 Commonwealth Avenue, also known as Haddon Hall, into a club; however, given general support for a Back Bay private club, Hexagon intends to pursue a new location for a club in the near future. The 29 Commonwealth Avenue club would have been complete with a 350-person restaurant or bar, a fitness center, a game room, guest rooms and a top-floor outdoor patio.
Hexagon plans to present its’ plans for The Residences at Haddon Hall, the now-proposed luxury residential conversion, in the coming months. “We are inspired by the tremendous outpouring of support for our vision to bring together a diverse group of thought leaders to a modern gathering place of impeccable design and service, but we have concluded that 29 Commonwealth Ave. will not be that place,” said Hexagon Properties President Sandra Edgerley in a prepared statement. “We can’t wait to share with you our exciting new plans for a diverse private club that will bring together the best that Boston has to offer, bridging the best of Boston traditions with the next generation.”
