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