About MassDot Air Rights Parcel 12
Boylston Street & Massachusetts Avenue, Back Bay, Boston, MA
Approved, 657,000 square foot mixed-use development along Boylston Street & Massachusetts Ave over MassDot Air Rights Parcel 12. The Parcel 12 project offers an opportunity to repair a barren corner of the Back Bay disrupted by the Turnpike, and to connect the Back Bay to The Fenway.
The approved plans call for one new office building (around 325K square foot), and a second hotel building, a citizenM hotel, (around 150K square feet) rising from a podium base with first and second-story retail and restaurant space (around 70K square feet). The development will also provide a roof-top terrace of approximately 20,000 square feet on top of the Podium.
As part of the development, the project would renovation and reopen the Hynes Convention Center MBTA stop and pedestrian tunnel improving access and safety. There would also be significant streetscape and landscaping improvements to the area including a 1/2 acre park.
