New South Boston hotel would include ‘floating’ pavilion

159-room boutique

Boston-based developer Evergreen Property Group wants to plunk an eight-story, 159-room boutique hotel at 246-248 Dorchester Avenue near the Red Line’s Broadway stop in South Boston.

The boutique’s design, which Boston architecture concern Utile Inc. is handling, would feature a so-called “floating” pavilion that would serve as a “beacon in the evenings.” according to newly unveiled details.

The hotel, which would replace a former rental car center and parking lots, would also have about 15,000 to 20,000 square feet of amenity space, including an outdoor deck and a restaurant. There would be parking for about 60.

Evergreen’s pitch comes at an opportune time: Boston needs hotel rooms, especially around the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Stay tuned.
