West End Tower

WEST END TOWER

A proposal has been submitted for a high-rise residential tower to be built on the site of the West End Garage. Located near the TD Garden, the West End Garage is a four-story concrete structure that was built along with many other unsightly garages in Boston during the 1960s.

The current garage has over 650 parking spaces for West End residents and people attending sports events or concerts at the TD Garden. The proposal calls for demolishing the existing structure in order to build a 46-story residential tower. The parking garage would be moved underground and would be expanded to 850 parking spaces. The new tower would hold over 480 luxury apartments with sweeping views of the city. The lower floors of the tower would be used for retail space. Along with the construction of the building, the developer has promised to redesign and landscape the area surrounding the tower.

This project should not be confused with the 38-story Avalon Tower, which is across the street from the West End Garage and is currently under construction. This should also not be confused with the Government Center Garage Redevelopment; another redevelopment project in the West End that has already been approved.

If the West End Tower receives approval from the Boston Redevelopment Authority, it will become one of five new high-rise towers that will be constructed around the TD Garden. Furthermore, it will be one of seven new high-rise towers that will be built in the West End.

Lovejoy Wharf

Lovejoy Wharf

Located between the TD Garden and the Charlestown Bridge, the Lovejoy Wharf Development is part of several new projects located in an area known as the Bulfinch Triangle. Nestled between the West End and the North End, the Bulfinch Triangle has been long overdue for a makeover since the completion of the Big Dig.

The Lovejoy Wharf Development has three major stages. The first stage consists of the construction of a new headquarters for Converse. The new headquarters will be located in the historic Hoffman Building, which will be completely renovated on the inside while the outside is preserved.

The second stage consists of the reconstruction of a new and updated harbor walk, which will once again link the North End and the West End. The current harbor walk through the wharf was crumbling and was constantly flooding over making it difficult for pedestrians to pass after storms. The new harbor walk through the wharf is up to safety standards with modern lighting and is now accessible for boats and water taxis. The space has been branded as a Public Waterfront Pavilion and will offer seating and landscaping with views of the Zakim Bridge.

The first two stages have already been completed and now construction has begun on the third stage. This final stage will consist of a modern 14-story tower that will be connected to the historic Hoffman Building. The new addition will have retail and restaurant space on the ground level while the upper floors will have up to 175 new condo units.
