Groundbreaking time again in Boston! This go-round it's for the Viridian, the 18-story tower slated for 1282 Boylston Street in busy, busy Fenway.
The 348,235-square-foot project will rise to 18 floors and include 342 apartments, according to the Boston Redevelopment Authority. There will be 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail as well as 295 parking spaces. Original plans called for 100,000 square feet of office space as well, but that was scrapped—first it looked like for condos, and then everything went rental. The Viridian replaces an old McDonald's lot. Bring it.
