Scott Van Voorhis is reporting that a mid-priced hotel has been proposed for the South End, in the shadow of Route 93 and across from the Boston Herald’s headquarters and printing plant.
Newton-based BH Normandy is proposing a 265,000-square-foot hotel that would include 110 parking spaces, according to an initial proposal filed with City Hall. The hotel would be built on a surface parking lot at 275 Albany St., bounded by Traveler and East Berkeley streets.
Scott doesn’t say who it is who actually owns the parking lot, but I believe it is the Herald.
I don’t think neighbors would be against this, as it is surrounded by nothing more than a gas station, empty lots, the Herald, a storage facility … and the Pine Street Inn.
Great location for a hotel, though.
