East boston condos

Plans for a new East Boston development hoping to revitalize an underutilized section of Border Street have been proposed by City Realty Group

The six story development would have 64 condos, ground floor retail space and an art gallery showcasing local artists in the lobby. 

Residents would be able to enjoy many amenities including a common roof deck, private decks in half of the units, a gym and interior parking. There would also be a separate bike room with ample space for bike storage. 

Developers are hoping that the retail space will attract either a yoga studio or juice bar in order to attract more residents throughout the neighborhood to the space and create a sense of community. 

Many new East Boston developments have been looking to add in more commercial space to create more opportunities for residents within the community. 

The lobby will include photos and other works by community artists to celebrate the area's culture and legacy. 

If the plans are approved the project is hoping to begin construction in spring 2017 and be completed by fall 2018.

Harrison Albany Block

The Harrison Albany Block project is a huge proposal for the South End, mixing rental buildings with ground floor amenities, retail, restaurant and cultural space. 

The development will include new buildings, new street designs, friendly open spaces, tree-lined streets and more to really create a sense of community with the space. 

The project will bring around 696 new apartments to the neighborhood, adding to the already thriving community in the area. 

The two residential buildings in the space would be around 11 stories high along East Dedham Street and East Canton Street. Another building at 575 Albany Street would be renovated and an additional five-story glass addition would be constructed on the top of the building. 

The development would also include office space and a large underground parking garage for residents and visitors. 

Throughout the project proposal the height of the buildings have decreased in order to fit more in with the surrounding development, however the mass of the project has increased. 

The development would sit on a 3.1 acre site and will seek a LEED Silver certification upon finishing the project. 

The proposal has been submitted however start dates and expected finishing dates have yet to be announced.

Luxury Developers Look to Framingham

Framingham

Framingham is the latest town that is being sought after by upscale apartment developers

One of the latest developments to be approved is called the Modera Framingham, a six-story 270-unit luxury apartment complex featuring a pool, private balconies and a fitness center. 

The owner of Shopper's World is also interested in joining the ranks of upscale apartments with a push for 130 new apartments located on a parking lot near the mall.

One Charlestown

One Charlestown is a huge redevelopment project that has been proposed for the Bunker Hill Apartments in Charlestown

The project plans to create 3,200 units of housing on the existing site, as well as create new beautiful buildings, well-lit, tree-lined streets and create a diverse neighborhood and community.

Washington Village Plans to Reinvent Andrew Square

Washington Village

A huge new development for South Boston's Andrew Square has just been approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

Washington Village was first proposed in 2015 and hopes to redefine the surrounding area by taking over nearly five acres with new development. 

The village would be made up of nine buildings with a range of heights up to 21 stories high. They will completely replace the current auto shops and laundries that make up the space. 

The proposal includes 656 apartments and condos, over 98,000 square feet of retail, most likely including a grocery store, parking spaces and plenty of open space with newly improved streets, walkways and plazas. 

Andrew Square has been studied by the BRA for a while, with the hopes of transforming the industrial blocks for residential and commercial buildings over the next two decades. The overall projects could bring up to 8,000 new residential units to the area in total. 

If all goes to plan for Washington Village then construction is planned to be complete by 2021.

South Station Project Adds Residential Space

Plans for the huge South Station tower project have recently been altered to include more residential space, according to the Boston Business JournalSouth Station

The three-tower project is a mixed-use development including residential space, office space, retail and hotel space that will be constructed over three phases. 

The total development will be 2.522 million square feet. The first phase of development will be a 43-story tower that will be more focused on office and retail space, with residential units on the top floors 28-43. 

The main residential development comes with the second phase, a 17-story tower which could potentially include a mix of apartments or condos and hotel space. If it focuses on apartment space it will include 375 rental units. 

The last phase is mainly office space and a parking garage. The project includes expanding the South Station bus terminal and adding in a parking garage. 

This development will provide residents with a wide range of amenities and create a community that fills all of the modern demands of live, work and play. 

The change in the original project plans favors residential space over the original larger amount of office space, which is a reflection of the market and demand for residential units. 

Hines are the developers behind the project and expect the first phase of construction to begin in 2017 and most likely not be complete for another four years.

Redevelopment of St. Gabriel's Monastery Plans Revealed

Brighton Monastery project rendering

Details have been filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority to develop the 11.8-acre site of St. Gabriel's Monastery in Brighton, which is no longer in operation. 

A huge new development proposed by Cabot, Cabot & Forbes and Peak Campus would bring around 679 housing units, most likely apartments, to the space, according to Curbed

The units would be laid out across three buildings and the renovated monastery building would be included, as well as the already existing Pierce House. The development would include the five buildings and 395 parking spots. 

The Brighton complex would be connected by paths and roads with plenty of surrounding green space. 

According to developers, the design and marketing will all be targeted towards specific demographics, including graduate students, young professionals and other university related staff and residents. Although they will not be limiting the space to these specific groups, that is the intended audience. 

This development comes along with many other student-focused projects around Boston, hoping to attract this group away from the regular hosing market that is growing increasingly competitive. 

If everything gets approved the developers hope to begin construction by mid 2017, and complete the large project within two years.

Developments Around Transport Hubs Planned for Forest Hills

Forest Hills

A new apartment development has been proposed for the Forest Hills area across from the Forest Hills MBTA Station.

The proposal for the Residences at Forest Hills include 260 rental units across three mixed-use residential and retail buildings over a single-level garage. The new development would take over what is currently a parking lot. 

Developers have worked alongside area residents, especially those living on nearby streets, in order to establish a desire and local approval for this project proposal. 

There is currently a building boom in Forest Hills as housing is increasingly popping up around transportation hubs. This area of Jamaica Plain is becoming a hot spot in the city and is expected to see even more new development in coming years. 

Units at the Residences at Forest Hills would range from studios to three bedroom apartments and three bedroom townhouses. There would also be space for bicycle storage and charging stations for electric cars. 

There will be 5,500 square feet of retail and restaurant space along Washington Street as a part of the new development. 

Due to the large size of this development it is likely to experience a higher level of scrutiny regarding how it will impact the surrounding are and neighborhood, taking into account what local residents think.
