Developers led by Leggat McCall plan to start construction this spring on a four-building complex within the block bounded by East Dedham Street, East Canton Street, Harrison Avenue, and Albany Street in the South End. (Update March 8: The development team now says it will likely be summer before Harrison Albany Block breaks ground.)
The Boston Planning and Development Agency signed off on the project on March 2.
Dubbed Harrison Albany Block, it is due to include 650 apartments as well as 19,700 square feet of retail and cultural space and 76,800 square feet of office space. Thirty-five percent of the 3.1-acre development, too, will utilize open space, including publicly accessible parkland.
The complex's two new buildings could stretch to 11 stories each, with additions to the existing 575 Albany Street and 660 Harrison Avenue creating buildings of 10 stories and five stories, respectively.
CBT Architects is handling the design. Stay tuned. The project joins a plethora of development along the South End’s Harrison Ave. corridor.
