The latest on the major new developments shaping the Boston region.
Down comes the Boston Common Hotel and Conference Center to make way for the 33-story project.
The development would mean a 22-story tower in between Soldiers Field Road and Western Avenue.
The Financial District building’s German owner wants to encase the first three floors in glass and move the main entrance.
The week’s other big development news includes a fresh plan for redeveloping the Boston Harbor Garage and another big proposal along Morrissey Boulevard.
The complex near Andrew Square would also now have seven buildings total.
A proposal would have the old Channel 56 site at 75 Morrissey Boulevard host two towers of up to 17 stories.
Other big development news of the week includes disruption at South Station, a tentative opening date for the Globe’s old HQ, and a big listing from UMass-Boston.
Jobs in the field pay handsomely, and that helps fuel a housing market that’s come to depend on more affluent tenants and buyers.
The 16.5-acre Dorchester site wants tenants for what its developer hopes becomes a tech-biotech hub.
The project could create a new "front door" for UMass-Boston via a fresh avenue from the Red Line.
The facility is unlikely to follow the path of the former Winthrop Square Garage, however, which is now the future site of one of New England’s tallest buildings.
Allston, Roxbury, Fort Point, and a handful of other enclaves are especially set to change—and to continue to change—in 2020.
The 31-story building at 100 Causeway Street is the last major component of the 1.5 million-square-foot project.
A bike-lane network, denser development, and more projects around T stops. Those are our wishes. What are yours? Sound off.
Other big development news of the week includes another major project in Allston as well as ones in Somerville and Cambridge—and the top neighborhoods of the 2010s.
That would likely ease the region’s notoriously congested roadways—but there are catches.
