State asks for community input … after the fact

This is interesting: The state is asking for public comments on the massive redevelopment plan for the Government Center Garage over Congress Street. Strange, but the mixed-use project has already been approved by the city. Granted, this is apparently a state EPA review of the project that includes tearing down most of the garage and [...]



Marty ‘Bulldoze’ Walsh: Let’s turn City Hall Plaza into a park

Mayor Marty Walsh, who proclaimed during his recent campaign that he wanted to bulldoze City Hall, is now saying that, if you can’t bulldoze it, then at least beautify it. Specifically, he wants to turn the wind-swept plaza into a park, with maybe a soccer field. We’re not sure about the soccer field. But turning [...]



So much for ‘compromise’ on the massive Garden development

Earlier this fall, Mayor Menino all but ordered the developers of the TD Garden project to compromise and lower the height of one of the planned 600-foot towers within the $1 billion mix-used project. That was then. This is now. There is no height compromise, as far as we can see. The developers, Boston Properties [...]



Quincy Market building set for major overhaul

The new manager of the Faneuil Hall Marketplace has promised and promised to upgrade its facilities – and now it looks like it’s finally prepared to do so: Faneuil Hall Marketplace would be set for dramatic changes to its historic Quincy Market building — including the addition of escalators — under preliminary design plans that [...]



Downtown Boston evolves into a real neighborhood

Sometimes you need someone to state the outright obvious in order for something to finally sink in. In downtown Boston’s case, Jennifer Athas has nailed the outright obvious: Boston’s downtown really has emerged of late into a genuine neighborhood. One can argue what exactly constitute’s the city’s “downtown.” But if you narrow it to roughly [...]



Emerson College backs down on Boylston Place dorm plan

It’s still unclear whether Boylston Place, one of the quainter alleyways in Boston, will ultimately be developed. But it looks like Emerson College is not going to be building what it originally wanted at Boylston Place: Emerson College has scrapped plans for a 280-foot dorm building on Boylston Place after residents and the Boston Redevelopment [...]



Developer reduces size of Government Center Garage project

Hot off the press: YM Investment Group will cut its main office building (at the Government Center Garage) to 528 feet from 600 feet and will nearly slice in half the size of a hotel condominium building along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. That building will be trimmed to 157 feet from 275 feet. That’s [...]



Photos of Filene’s building demolition

Here’s some photos taken yesterday during the weekend demolition of the old Filene’s building in Downtown Crossing. Click on photos for larger, more clear views. The photo above is from Washington Street, roughly from the corner of Washington and Franklin.   Above is a closer shot from Washington Street. You can’t see it, but the [...]



Roche Bros. in talks to open Downtown Crossing grocery store

The well-regarded Roche Bros. supermarket chain, normally associated with the suburbs, is in talks to open a new store of some sort (it’s not clear if it would be full-fledged supermarket or something smaller) in Downtown Crossing. Specifically, it’s reportedly negotiating with Millennium Partners about putting a store in the new Millennium Tower, which includes [...]



Government Center Garage could be redeveloped into massive tower

This is huge — and maybe even historic. It could transform the entire core downtown area. From the Herald: The 2,300-space parking garage would become 771 apartments, 1.3 million square feet of office space, and 85,000 square feet of street-level shops and restaurants. About half the existing garage — 1,100 spaces on nine levels — [...]
