$201M Permit Pulled for Boylston St. Air Rights Project
Samuels & Associates has pulled a building permit valued at $201,061,707 to kick off construction for the Parcel 12 Air Rights project at the corner of Mass. Ave & Boylston Street. Plans call for a 325,000 square foot office building and a 150,000 square foot hotel rising from a podium with around 70,000 square feet of first and second-story retail and restaurant space. The project will also include the renovation and reopening of the Hynes Convention Center MBTA stop and pedestrian tunnel improving access and safety.
BPDA Approves Samuels and Associates Parcel 12 Project
The Boston Planning Board has approved Samuels & Associates transformative project on Parcel 12 in Back Bay. The new project will include an office tower featuring 325,000 square feet of space along with a 150,000 square foot hotel and ground-floor retail and restaurant space. A 1/2 acre park will also be included on-site along with numerous streetscape improvements designed to improve the pedestrian experience around the very busy intersection of Mass. Ave. and Newbury Street. The development team told the board they hope to begin construction this coming winter.
Samuels Parcel 12 Proposal Would Unite The Fenway & Back Bay
The block of Massachusetts Avenue between Newbury and Boylston Street is NOT one of the areas that makes Boston a walkable city. It's an unpleasant corner over the highway where walkers and bikers shuttling between The Fenway & Back Bay cross an on-ramp to the Mass Pike.
The proposal submitted to the city earlier this week from Samuels and Associates would make drastic improvements in this area as part of their 545K mixed-use project. The Parcel 12 project would feature two buildings, an office tower and another for hotel/residential use. A podium below will also include retail and restaurant space. Samuels proposal would also reopen a pedestrian tunnel to the Hynes Convention Center MBTA station and provide sidewalk improvements to the area.
The project is currently under review and the development team hopes to start site work next year.
