One of the most foot-stompingly titanic real estate projects in modern Boston took a major step forward Thursday evening, with the Boston Redevelopment Authority approving the first two towers proposed for a redeveloped Government Center Garage in downtown Boston. One, a 480-foot apartment spire with 486 units and ground-floor retail, is expected to get under way this spring, per Tim Logan in the Globe. Work on the second, which is due to stretch to 528 feet, will start once developers HYM Investment and National Real Estate Advisors land an anchor tenant for what will be the biggest office tower under construction in Boston.
Four other shoots are expected to join these two spires, making for a six-building complex with a whopping 812 apartments and condos as well as 1.1 million square feet of office space, a hotel and fresh storefronts. Stay tuned.
