Construction began on Bulfinch Crossing, a 2.9-million-sq.-ft. mixed-use project in Boston, in January. Commercial Property Executive reported that developers National Real Estate Advisors LLC and The HYM Investment Group LLC joined local leaders to celebrate commencement of the US$1.5-billion undertaking, beginning to transform two full city blocks downtown. Designed by Pelli Clark Pelli and CBT Architects, the development will emerge from the sprawling, 50-year-old Government Center Garage.
Ultimately, Bulfinch Crossing will feature six buildings, including the 1-million-sq.-ft.-plus One Congress office at 43 stories and a nine-story boutique office tower. Two residential towers, one of which will be the tallest apartment rental tower in Boston at 45 stories, will yield 800 luxury condominium and apartment units. Finally, 82,500 sq. ft. of retail space and a 200-room hotel will sit above two subway lines. More than 1,200 construction jobs are expected to be created for work on the development, which is expected to take five to 10 years.
