Boston Properties proposes mixed-use development in Massachusetts

Real estate investment company Boston Properties has proposed to develop a mixed-use project spanning 1.26 million ft² area above Back Bay Station in Boston, Massachusetts, US.

According to the plan, filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, there will be three different commercial and residential towers, as well as a revamped and expanded Back Bay Station.

If approved, the entire project will feature a 26-storey office space spanning across 575,000ft², of which 30,000ft² will be retail space, and include a new entrance to Back Bay Station.

A 34-storey, 360 unit residential tower will cover 380,000ft² and include 8,500ft² of retail space.

Nicknamed South End Gateway project, the proposed development will be carried out across the neighbourhood of the station, reports Boston Business Journal.

Boston Properties has not mentioned the amount of money to be invested in the project.

Designed by Kallmann McKinnell & Wood and opened in 1987, the present Back Bay station building is an intercity rail, commuter rail, and rapid transit train station.

In 2014, Boston Properties reportedly expressed its willingness to revamp the Back Bay station area.
