Before the massive $650 million Columbus Center project, proposed for over the Massachusetts Turnpike, gets out of the gate, several other major developments are already changing the neighborhood where the South End and Back Bay meet.
Three neighboring projects will remake a block of Columbus Avenue near the Back Bay MBTA station.
John A. Keith, a Realtor and publisher of the Boston Real Estate Blog, said this block of Columbus Avenue is “a bit dead” and would be enlivened by more businesses and residents. But, he said, “not everybody has to live in the middle of something. That could be good for people from out of town or empty-nesters.”
