The Boston Planning and Development Agency in late March approved changes to the plan for developing the approximately 20-acre Hood Park campus near I-93 and the Sullivan Square Orange Line stop in Charlestown.

If Boston Zoning Commission also approves, the changes will grow the project by about 566,000 square feet to a total of 1,735,800 square feet.

The BPDA also okayed the development’s 10 Stack Street, a 350,000-square-foot office and lab building that is one of many new structures amid one of Boston’s biggest developments.

The agency had already signed off on 100 Hood Park Drive, another lab-and-office building, and 480 Rutherford Avenue, a 177-unit apartment building called the Harvey. Those are both underway.

The approval this month will allow for an expansion of 100 Hood Park by 150,000 square feet, according to a release from Hood Park’s developers, a limited liability company that includes the Kaneb family and Catamount Management.

Hood Park—a redevelopment of the old H.P. Hood and Sons dairy hub—is due to including seven new buildings as well as a handful of existing ones and 2.88 acres of parkland, thanks to the recently approved tweak.

  • 6 Stack Street: 1,000 square feet of retail space
  • 10 Stack Street: 350,300 square feet of office/lab space, and 149 parking spaces
  • 30 Stack Street: 157,400 square feet of office/lab space
  • 45 Stack Street: 6,050 square feet of retail space
  • 35 Supertest Street: 275,950 square feet of office and residential space, and 100 parking spaces
  • 25 Supertest Street: 128,800 square feet of hotel space
  • 15 Supertest Street: 12,000 square feet of retail space

The Boston Zoning Commission is reviewing the latest changes that the BPDA approved and could approve them as soon as April 10. If that happens, the developers expect remaining construction to commence in October, with work continuing into 2027. Stay tuned.
