Project: Lewis Wharf



Quote:
The proposed hotel, marina, parkland and Harborwalk would meet current city and state regulations for public access and open space under waterfront regulations and zoning, according to the developer. At 55 feet high (before mechanicals) the project is not expected to require a zoning height variance.

The Lewis Wharf property sits on harbor tidelands, subject to State “Chapter 91″ requirements. The property was also zoned with the rest of the waterfront area under the 1990 Municipal Harborpark Plan (pdf).

Title to the land under the pilings at the end of Lewis Wharf was conveyed by a grant of the Massachusetts Legislature in 1832 to the Lewis Wharf Company. The grant was specifically made subject to a “public trust” and to be used for a “public purpose.” A 1979 Supreme Judicial Court addressed this specific land ruling that any development be for “marine commerce or a public purpose.” The developer believes they can meet that standard with the new proposal because State regulators consider hotel and marina use to be public accommodation.

If last year’s response is an indication, some opposition to the added density, potential noise/traffic and lost views is expected by abutters from Lewis Wharf condominium, the Prince Building located across the street and activists as part of Preserve Boston’s Waterfront. Proponents are emphasizing regulatory compliance to distinguish it from controversial high-rise tower projects, such as Harbor Garage and Government Center Garage.

Project: 270 and 284 Dorchester Avenue





Quote:
A nine-story apartment high-rise and 18 townhouses would take shape in South Boston where a marine hardware store and a shuttered sub shop now stand, according to a new development proposal filed with City Hall.

The new residential complex would also come with a two-level, underground parking garage for 123 cars and 8,350 square feet of retail and commercial space. Edwards is reserving a spot for Ultimate Self Defense, a long-time neighborhood business he rents space to, with hopes of attracting a small food store and/or other neighborhood-style retail for the remainder.

Project: Artists For Humanity Expansion



Quote:
Back in November BostInno reported that Artists For Humanity, Boston's largest employer of youths and teens in an artistic capacity, was expanding on its South Boston headquarters by an additional 57,000-square feet. On Tuesday, June 23, a public hearing will be held to engaged the public on the development's more intricate details.

This growth would bring AFH's aptly named EpiCenter to a total of 81,000-square feet of space.

AFH has grown by leaps and bounds, empowering Boston's younger and under-resourced demographic through art since 1991, and has since outgrown its Southie complex where it's been situated since 2004.

In fact, in 2014 alone AFH completed more than 723 commissioned artworks and hosted 89 events while generating almost $1.5 million in fine art sales and services.

AFH's proposed development has been slightly modified since announcing its plans last fall with plans for a roughly 6,000-square foot reduction.

"As we got further into designing the expansion and studying the expected usage times of different spaces, we found opportunities to be more efficient and flexible with spaces," AFH director of operations Drew Motta told BostInno. "As these efficiencies developed, we were able to reduce our required area. This smaller building makes it easier for us to position enough photovoltaic panels to become Energy Positive."

The new space will allow AFH to double its youth employment and provide for 250 more jobs, and create a new "Maker Studio" which, Motta added, "allows the public to access our art-making facilities and equipment, and interact with other creative young people and adults."

Project: 64 Allandale Street



Quote:
Sixteen contemporary, sustainably designed townhomes are proposed for a secluded property near Allandale Woods in Boston’s West Roxbury neighborhood.

Dorchester developer Jacqueline Nunez’s Wonder Group LLC wants to build the homes in five clusters on an approximately 2- acre lot at 64 Allandale St., near the Jamaica Plain border, along with four more units in an existing single-family home that would be renovated and expanded.

The $20 million-plus project would pursue an extremely ambitious sustainability agenda, according to Donald Wiest, Wonder Group’s attorney.

Project: Marriott Moxy Hotel



Quote:
The BRA board today approved a plan for a 23-story "microhotel" at the corner of Tremont and Stuart streets that will have 346 rooms of just 175 square feet apiece.

The proposed Marriott Moxy Hotel will rise on what is a small BRA-owned lot now used solely for large advertising banners.

Because of the lot's small size, the hotel will cantilever over Stuart Street. It will feature a rooftop bar and large-ish LED ad screens for that mini-Times Square effect.

Project: 171 Tremont Stree



Quote:
A development team comprised of a local builder and Swiss family has filed paperwork with the Boston Redevelopment Authority to construct a 20-story residential tower on Tremont Street overlooking Boston Common and the Boston Public Gardens.

According to the project notification form, the development team known as 171 Tremont LLC – a venture by Switzerland's Dabbah family in tandem with Boston-based David Raftery – intends to raze the 0.1-acre parcel's currently existing four-story building to the ground to build 19 luxury condo units on the fringe of both Downtown Crossing, Chinatown and the Theater District.

Should 171 Tremont LLC gain approval for the 237-foot tall building, it'll be adding to a burgeoning residential area in terms of both unit volume and price. As it turns out, rental data indicates Chinatown is the most expensive neighborhood in the city for one- and two-bedroom apartments with Downtown Crossing not far behind.

Project: Boston City Hall Renovation



Quote:
Translucent glass would allow the original wall-surface variations to still be seen, but now softened by filtration through the glass “veil.” This way, the projecting balconies of the front and rear façade, as well as brick structures on the north and east sides, would be allowed to emerge. At street level, articulated openings would clarify entrances. Along Congress Street, the glass sheath would extend to the meridian, creating a covered “car port” for taxis and buses, and a covered pedestrian corridor along the now-barren brick wall.

Aesthetics aside, there’s also an energy-savings benefit to this concept. City Hall, with its large interior courtyard and concrete surfaces, has always been expensive to heat. Encapsulating the building in glass would create a climate-controlled, passive solar interior environment.

Feasibility studies and cost estimates would need to be done, but the cost of this proposal pales in comparison with the cost of a more invasive exterior remodeling, or a new building. And over time, the savings in heating costs would defray the expense of the project.

The building could appear luminous and crystalline, transparent, welcoming, sheltering, inclusive — all better metaphors for city government.

Is that a joke?

The building is beyond ugly already, and that might make it worse. Also what's this new obsession with indoor sunlight?

Might be more economical to kill the damn thing and build a better building in its place.

But do something with the plaza. Make it useable. Lightweight pavilions and planters with decent trees how about.

Yeah its kinda all over the place. Seems like the renovation is more a byproduct of being cheap and saving money. Eh, is what it is. Its a proposal for now, so it might change.

^That's absolutely hideous. Ive always wondered why Boston hasn't developed such a large (totally useless) space. Just seems like a gold mine.

What a grotesque proposal. Tear that piece of shit down and redevelop the entire parcel.

That's a nice looking short tower. I'm looking forward to getting back to Boston to see all the progress on everything. It's changed a lot in the 4 years since I've left.

Project: Pierce Boston

30-story glass tower with 349 residential units (109 condos & 240 rentals) and 20,000-square feet of retail space



Quote:
Boston's Fenway neighborhood has all the makings to become one of the city's most dynamic communities. It's rich in sports with nearby Fenway Park – home of our beloved Red Sox – it has a startup launching space currently in the works and one of its latest residential buildings sits atop a Target retailer that also boasts a liquor license.

In 2013 the Boston Redevelopment Authority approved construction of another residential tower neighboring Van Ness, the mixed-use development beneath which CityTarget is located, the first urban Target store of its kind on the East Coast.

Originally, the project which is now known as Pierce Boston was slated to be a 22-story building with 320 residential units and 33,292-square feet of ground and second floor retail space.

Revisions to the project brought us to where it stands today: a 30-story glass tower with 349 residential units (109 condos and 240 rentals) and 20,000-square feet of retail space.

Demolition has begun on the Boylston Street site and construction will begin soon with a target completion date of fall 2017. According to the development's website, Pierce Boston's sales gallery will open this year for prospective buyers and renters.

The website bills Pierce Boston as "not only an architectural standout, it is reimagining fine living in one of the nation's most storied cities."

The condos and apartments will range from studios to one-, two- and three-bedroom units. For those residents with vehicles, a subsurface pedestrian connection will link Pierce Boston to the Trilogy Garage.

Wow, some height in Fenway?! Usually strong neighborhood resistance in this area among many others.
