The Boston Celtics are exiting their Waltham practice facility of the past 17 years for a brand-new center to be constructed at Brighton's big-time Boston Landing project. The team announced the move on Tuesday.
The practice facility is expected to run to around 70,000 square feet and to be visible from the nearby Turnpike. How so? The facility is slated to include a 40-foot glass wall around the two parquet courts. The hub will also include office space, a hospitality lounge, top-notch sports science and physical therapy areas, and all 17 World Championship banners.
Construction on the Celtics' slice of Boston Landing is expected to start this fall and wrap by the summer of 2018. At that time, the Celtics will become the Bruins' neighbors. The NHL franchise is also building out space at the 15-acre complex.
Above is an early rendering of the Celtics' facility at 40 Guest Street. Busy, busy architects Elkus Manfredi are designing it. Stay tuned.
