Things are about to get going at Lovejoy Wharf in the West End-North End borderlands. Recall that the development, O.K.'d by the city in December, will transform the nine-story building at 160 North Washington Street (pictured above on its last legs) into a 10-story building of 187,000 square feet of office space (mostly for shoe giant Converse) and 45,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, including a 300-seat cafe-style restaurant.
At the same time, the rundown building at 131 Beverly Street is to be done away with, superseded by a 14-story building, with approximately 100 apartments as well as a 10-story link to 160 North Washington. There will also be 315 parking spaces and a lot of public space amidst the previously private wharf. And! There will be a big, big neighbor in the recently announced towers in front of TD Garden. Those twins will include 500 luxury residences, a 200-room hotel, and a galleria of stores and restaurants less than one-third of a mile away. There sure is a lot of construction in the Hub nowadays.
