Avalon North Station Tower

Suffolk University rendering for Nashua Street Resdience Tower

Construction has started on a new high-rise residential building next to the TD Garden. This project is among several other developments near the TD Garden that were approved in the final days of the Menino administration. Along with the development planned in front the TD Garden, Avalon Tower will be one of four new high-rise buildings to surround the sports arena.

Developed by AvalonBay Communities, the tower next to the Garden is one of several development projects that the company has been working on in Boston. At over 400 feet high and a price tag of 250 million, this is one of their biggest projects in Boston to date.

The 38-story tower will be centrally located next to one of Bostons main sports arenas and North Station. Future residents of the tower will have direct access to a major transportation hub as well as a close proximity to the many sports bars and restaurants surrounding the TD Garden. Among the 500 residential units that will be created, there will be studios and 1-3 bedroom apartments.

Beyond the residential units, the area directly around the tower will be landscaped, creating a park-like feel. Furthermore, there will be a two-story covered passageway through the base of the tower connecting Nashua Street and Causeway Street for pedestrians. The passageway will be lined with retail shops and restaurants to serve all of the general public.

Pricing of the residential units is rumored to be ranging from $2,400 for studios to $7,500 plus for three-bedroom penthouse units. The tower is planned to be finished around 2017.

THE MERANO

Causeway-1-768x576

Construction has started on a development project known as the Merano located on the last open parcel of the Bulfinch Triangle. Of the three open parcels created by The Big Dig, the first parcel was developed into an apartment complex called the Victor while the second was developed into a luxury apartment building called One Canal.

When completed, the Merano will mark the full development of the Bulfinch Triangle. This latest development project is part of several massive development projects in the area, including the redevelopment of the TD Garden, the redevelopment of the Government Center Garage, the West End Tower and Avalon Tower.

Originally slated as a 12-story building that would hold two major hotels, the project was recently changed in order to win city approval. Now this $230 million development project has grown to a 14-story building that will have underground parking to accommodate the parking lot, which currently sits on the lot. Half of the building will be a 220-room hotel while the other half will hold 239 apartments.

All of the apartments in the building will be reserved for working class people whose income fall into a certain bracket. With the major building boom in Boston, many neighborhoods around the city have seen a rise in property values and increased rents. Many local politicians have advocated for the creation of price controlled housing so that working people will not be pushed out of Boston by rising rents.

The first floor of the building will be reserved for street level retail space. There is no doubt that the project will have a positive impact on the surrounding area. Many of the projects supporters have pointed out that the new residents and hotel guests will be a boost to shops and restaurants nearby.
