Boston condos

Construction of New Balance’s $500 million Boston Landing project is well under way.

But now it looks like they’re going to add a large 295,000-square-foot housing component to the project at 125 Guest Street, which is basically across the street from the main construction site and now a small light-industrial/trucking property that was purchased by NB earlier this year for $10 million.

Though no housing units numbers were given, the math basically breaks down like this: Take the 295,000 square feet and subtract from it ground-floor retail space (how much, we don’t know, assuming the city insists on some ground-floor retail space) and … well, it would still leave a lot for housing.

How’s that for math?
