Landmark Center


Higher quality renderings in this pdf along with lots of information on it: http://www.bostonredevelopmentauthor...7-596a2878a316


Quote:
A Boston developer has filed plans with the Boston Redevelopment Authority on Monday to replace the Landmark Center’s 1,400 car parking garage with offices, housing and the Hub’s first Wegmans.
Samuels & Associates has proposed a $500 million expanded Landmark Center that would include three new buildings, ranging from 10 to 12 stories above a two-story retail podium, with 550 residential units. Wegmans will occupy 75,000 square feet, additional office space will total 15,000 square feet and there will be another 110,000 square feet of retail, much of it along Brookline Avenue. Housing will be located in three buildings.
“The Landmark Center that Steve Samuels is proposing is fascinating and I think Wegmans will be a great addition to the city,” said Peter Meade, BRA director. “It will make every other supermarket in our region better because they will need to compete with Wegmans.”
The proposed project creates 2.2 acres of open space, representing a nearly 100 percent increase in parks in the heart of the Fenway. Located at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Kilmarnock Street, the new open space will include a park and a plaza.
Wegmans, a family-owned grocer with one store in Northborough and another under construction in Chestnut Hill, will have the look and feel of a European, open-air market. Wegmans have legions of fans, many who are from upstate New York, where the chain was founded. The stores offer fresh produce, hundreds of imported cheeses, artisan breads, baked goods and prepared foods.

The Verb Hotel



Quote:
This summer, the mid-century motel will become The Verb, replacing what started out as the Fenway Motor Hotel at 1271 Boylston St. in 1959. The 94-room hotel promises to “meld the best of Boston’s past, with the vibrant, spirited culture of the modern-day Fenway neighborhood,” according to Samuels & Associates, the developers behind the project, who are credited with more than $1 billion of investment in many of Fenway’s newest residential, retail and commercial spaces.
The Boston-based developer bought the property in December for an undisclosed prices and took out a $25.4 million mortgage from Brookline Bank, according to the Suffolk Registry of Deeds. The renovation cost of the 43,000-square-foot hotel was estimated at $3 million, according to city records.
Samuels partnered with Weiner Ventures and Spot-On Ventures, developers of the Mandarin Oriental Boston. The Verb is Samuels’ first hotel property.
“We saw a real opportunity to create something unique in this space, while respecting the independent spirit of the local community, building on the arts culture in Fenway and delivering real hospitality in a world that moves too fast,” said Steve Samuels, principal of Samuels & Associates, in a statement.

Cleveland Circle Project Tabled; Meet Dukakis Station



Quote:
Fresh plans are afoot for the development that would replace the old Circle Cinema and a nearby Applebee's in the Brookline-Boston hinterlands.

Recall that the old plans called for a five-story, 234,500-square-foot development with a 196-room Hilton Garden Inn; 74 apartments; around 18,000 square feet of medical office space; and 14,200 square feet of ground-floor retail, including restaurant space. In new plans filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the office component is kaput. Also, the number of hotel rooms has shrank (to 180); the retail square-footage has grown by 200; and the number of apartments has grown (to 92).

Actually, the plans have shifted more than once; and it's likely they'll shift again. Per Matt Rocheleau at Boston.com: "The project, first proposed nearly three years ago, has undergone numerous design changes at the urging of both city officials and area residents. This past spring, some residents said they want to see more changes, namely to address traffic-related concerns."

UMass Lowell gets $1 million in state funds for innovation center



Quote:
The M2D2 expansion will occupy one floor in the building at 110 Canal Street, measuring 11,000 square feet. The other floor will be used for a new kind of innovation space for UMass Lowell: housing startup technology companies.
UMass Lowell is referring to both floors as the Innovation Hub, where there will be co-working space for entrepreneurs and ventures to test their products and business ideas. They will be provided with connections to research, business mentoring, financial resources, help with commercialization and more.

The Innovation Hub, which will provide space for up to 40 entrepreneurs and startups, is the first commercial component in what's known as the Hamilton Canal District in Lowell, where a number of old mill buildings are located. The Freudenberg Building at 110 Canal is a 55,000-square-foot structure and is considered part of the area’s redevelopment process.

European retailer Primark to open first U.S. store at former Filene's site



Quote:
Primark, one of the largest clothing retailers in Europe, plans to open a flagship store on four floors of the Burnham Building next year at the former longtime headquarters of Filene’s in Boston's Downtown Crossing.
The Dublin-based company has inked a deal to lease 112,000 square feet of space in the landmark property. About 70,000 square feet of the space will be used for retail, and the rest will be for corporate offices. Primark said the store will employ 500 hourly workers while another 60 are management.

Grossman seeks approval to redevelop former Spag's site



Quote:
Shrewsbury voters will get a chance to consider a Southborough builder’s plan to transform the shuttered Spag’s/Building #19 property into a multi-use complex that would include housing, retail and office space.
Town meeting voters will consider a proposal on Tuesday by the Grossman Development Group to rezone the 20-acre site to allow for a mix of uses.
So far, the developer has been reluctant to talk specifics about the project dubbed “Lakeway Commons." Mark Hebert, Grossman’s vice president of development, has said the company is not ready to reveal the plan’s details. He could not be reached for comment today.
Voters will consider a warrant that would rezone that retail section of Route 9 to allow for housing and medical offices. If approved, Grossman would be allowed to reconfigure access to the site, easing traffic flow in and out of the parcel. It’s unclear when construction would commence, if the town approves the zoning change.

MBTA: Board Approves New Green Line Cars and Buses



Quote:
The MassDOT Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the purchase of 40 new buses and to award a contract to build 24 new Green Line cars.

The procurement of 40 new diesel-electric hybrid buses will allow the MBTA to retire buses purchased in 1994 and 1995. The new buses will be manufactured by New Flyer in St. Cloud, Minnesota, with production starting later this summer. All 40 buses will be in service by February 2015. The Board also moved to execute a contract with CAF USA, Inc. to furnish and deliver the ninth generation of Green Line vehicles to support the Green Line Extension project. The procurement of these 24 vehicles will also help to improve service reliability on the entire Green Line system.

“The Board’s approval to purchase 40 new buses and build 24 new Green Line cars underscores the commitment MassDOT and the MBTA have to upgrading its aging fleet,” said MassDOT Secretary & CEO Richard A. Davey. “These new buses and cars will provide safer, more comfortable, accessible and environmentally-friendly public transportation to the millions of customers the MBTA serves each day.”

PENDLETON WOOLEN MILLS OUTLET



Quote:
The (mega) Outlets at Assembly Row are poised to finally open late this month, introducing retailers like Saks Off Fifth that we would otherwise have to drive to the 'burbs to shop. One of the more niche brands we're pumped to see there is Pendleton Woolen Mills, the Oregon-based heritage label built on woven textiles and Native American-inspired prints. Promotional events are scheduled from May 29 through June 1.

The Long Game in Allston



Harvard's 10-year plan for Allston includes an addition to Harvard Stadium and construction of new buildings, as seen looking northeast from Allston back toward Cambridge.



Quote:
FOLLOWING APPROVAL of the University’s Institutional Master Plan (IMP) by the Boston Redevelopment Authority last October, the work of envisioning much larger, longer-term academic and commercial growth on Harvard’s Allston properties has now begun. President Drew Faust signaled the news in a low-key e-mail, titled “Allston Update,” just before the December holiday break. It announced that provost Alan Garber and executive vice president Katie Lapp would direct three committees charged with advising on “the creation or relocation” of academic facilities; planning “a community of commercial and nonprofit” entities in an “enterprise research campus”; and consolidating these ideas and putting them into a University, regulatory, and financing context.

THE BOSTON REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (BRA) voted unanimously on Thursday night to allow the University to move ahead with its Institutional Master Plan (IMP)—nine projects totaling 1.4 million square feet for Harvard’s expanding campus across the Charles River in Allston. The approval establishes overall zoning guidelines, but each project will have to undergo further individual review, and comes as Harvard is about to commence site preparation for a previously approved Science Center on Western Avenue, said University officials.

The nine projects include: an addition to Harvard Stadium that will add indoor seating and office space; a new, larger, basketball gymnasium; a 150- to 250-room hotel/conference center located on Western Avenue across from Harvard Business School (HBS); and various renovations and additions to HBS’s campus, such as a new auditorium for Burden Hall, faculty and administrative offices, and renovation of the adjacent Soldiers Field Park housing complex. The IMP also sketches Harvard’s long-term vision for its Allston campus, which—while in no way binding—would in future decades transform the area from paved, vehicular-oriented, industrial and commercial uses to others similar to those of Harvard Square and its environs, with walkable green spaces, numerous transit options, retail districts centered on road intersections, and permeable, shady quadrangles with many substantial academic buildings.

THE ENVOY



Quote:
Officials with the city of Boston, Norwich Partners, and Marriott recently broke ground on a new $70-million hotel in South Boston’s Seaport District.

Located on the site of a former parking lot at 70 Sleeper St., the planned six-story structure will include 136 hotel rooms in addition to 4,000-square-feet of ground-floor retail, according to the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

Plans also call for a public roof deck with a bar and lounge, according to the Boston Business Journal.

Dubbed the Envoy Hotel, the project is being developed by New Hampshire-based Norwich Partners. Marriott will manage the property as part of the hotel giant’s luxury Autograph Collection.

Expected to be completed by the spring of 2015, the project also includes the development of a new section of the Harborwalk on Old Sleeper Street. The new walkway, which will connect the Fort Point Harborwalk to the section of the Harborwalk near the Moakley Courthouse, will also feature new plantings, lighting, and benches, according to the BRA.

Two potential Casino proposals for the site: The voters are in favor of a Mohegan Sun.

--------------------------------------------------------
Mohegan Sun, Wynn present casino plans for Revere, Everett





Quote:
Two leaders in the casino gaming industry touted their plans for revenue sharing, jobs and revitalizing downturned areas in their effort to win over the members of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn of Wynn Resorts and executives from Mohegan Sun put on their best show for the state gaming commissioners on Wednesday as the gambling leaders fought for only one casino license in Greater Boston. Both Wynn Resorts and Mohegan Sun gave approximately 90 minute presentations to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and revealed some more details about their plans for casinos in Everett and Revere.

The commission is expected to award a license in May.

Mohegan Sun, which is proposing a casino located on 42 acres of Suffolk Downs in Revere, presented first and highlighted their ties to New England and Boston. They showed about five short video presentations, one of which ended with Dropkick Murphys “I’m Shipping Up to Boston.” The crowd of more than 100 supporters started clapping to the song.

“This marriage of Mohegan Sun Massachusetts with Revere, it isn’t like it feels like home, it is home. It’s where we’re from,” said Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority Chairman Robert Brown. Brown began his presentation to the commission by talking about going to Fenway Park and the Boston Garden as a child.

Planners and designers with Mohegan Sun said the casino would have two hotels, intimate lounges, “high octane” dance clubs and casual pubs.

Wynn, who is proposing a $1.6 billion resort casino on a contaminated waterfront site in Everett, spent as much of his time talking about his own proposal as he did taking shots at Mohegan Sun’s plan. He also put emphasis on the non-gaming revenue that his casinos generate.

“It’s the place, the magic of the place, that does it and in order to make the place, the magic, you have to know how. So you don’t build three star [resorts], you build 5 star [resorts],” he said.

Revere approves casino with 63 percent vote

Quote:
Casino supporters cheered after Revere voters approved a billion dollar resort casino on land next to Suffolk Downs.

Revere Mayor Dan Rizzo led the charge.

"Today Revere said yes to jobs, today Revere said yes to tax relief for all of our residents. Today Revere said yes to better schools and safer streets," he said.

Now Mohegan Sun and the community will have to convince the Mass. State Gaming Commission the plan is better than a competing proposal from Wynn Resorts to build a casino in Everett.

Mohegan officials said Revere voters made a clear case with their vote.

"I think more people voted 'yes' here in revere than actually voted in Everett so I think you can look at a lot of different things. This was an overwhelming support of this casino by a community that clearly wants it,” Mohegan Sun CEO Mitchell Etess said.

Boston Real Estate Firm to Co-Develop $500m New Balance Complex in Brighton



Quote:
Boston-based real estate company HYM Investment Group, LLC announced today it will co-develop the massive, $500-million complex in Brighton that local footwear company New Balance began building recently.

The “Boston Landing” project will create a 1.45 million square foot health and wellness district along Guest Street consisting of a new headquarters for New Balance, a sports complex, hotel and up to three office buildings along with space for retail, restaurant, outdoor recreation and parking.

New Balance is also building a new commuter rail station on the Framingham-Worcester line tracks that abut the 14-acre site and run parallel to the Massachusetts Turnpike.

James Halliday, managing director of NB Development Group, LLC, a subsidiary of New Balance, said his team chose to bring on HYM “because of its direct experience with phased mixed-use sites across the region.”
