Matthew Amorello, Chairman of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority provided some details on two new developments, last night, for projects near North Station and in Chinatown.
First up, a new supermarket (rumored to be a Stop & Shop) will be included in a new building, to be built on North Washington Street, in the historic Bulfinch Triangle area of Boston near North Station. There will be 240 residential units on upper floors and ground-floor retail shops, according to the Boston Globe (the Boston Herald reports it will include 160 units).
Amorello also said the authority will choose a team of the nonprofit Asian Community Development Corporation and New Boston Development Partners to build 300 residential units in Chinatown, on a block known as Parcel 24.
The development will contain both condos and rental apartments — half of them set at below-market rates. It will be at Kneeland and Hudson streets, where homes were demolished decades ago to build highway ramps.
