Everyone's favorite rubber stamp, the Boston Redevelopment Authority, will likely weigh in on the redevelopment of Landmark Center in busy, busy Fenway at its board meeting Thursday evening.
Recall that plans call for not only up to 600 luxury apartments on the site but 15,000 square feet of office space and a slew of new retail, too, including Boston's first Wegmans grocery store in a 75,000-square-foot space. The new parts of the Landmark Center would rise from 10 to 12 stories; and there would be an underground garage with 1,500 spaces as well.
This evening's BRA meeting not only offers the prospect of a major leap forward for Samuels & Associates, the Landmark Center's would-be redeveloper, but also a look into its workings under new Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who has vowed changes, big changes, at the city's governing developmental authority.
