The only constant is change at the proposed Nashua Street Residences near TD Garden. Recall that the tower at one point was to be 375 apartments in a building of around 40 floors; then it was 363 condos in a 37-story building; then, in a $50 million deal involving the air rights over the North Station parking garage, new plans emerged for around 500 apartments in a building of similar size, with the number of parking spaces being cut from 270 to 219. Got that?
Well, according to plans revealed on Tuesday, the tower is slated to, in fact, be 38 stories of 503 apartments... that may become condos. Developer AvalonBay isn't so sure and awaits the free market's verdict (the $200 million tower is not expected to be completed until 2016). Whatever the type of residences, the building's a corker (and a perfect excuse to update our Boston Towers Heatmap!). The first six floors will include not only parking, but a two-story retail arcade connecting the Nashua Street Residences to both North Station and TD Garden. Then there will be 32 floors of apartments above. Or condos. Stay tuned.
