Hang onto your hats – nearly 1600 units could be coming our way at the newly proposed Boston Edison project. Last month, project manager Ralph Cox of Redgate Real Estate teased us with a sneak peek of the new mammoth development which included plans partial demolition and re-use of the existing power plant plus the building of eight new structures over the next 10 to 15 years. The sexy details also included a combination of a hotel, residential, office, retail, commercial and restaurant uses and of course parking.
Well, on Monday, May 15th, developers filed a formal plan with the Boston Redevelopment and Planning Agency with specifics of just how giant this project will be. Here are the details: there will be will 1,588 residential units, a 150-room hotel, 340,000 square feet of office space and 68,000 square feet of retail, 987 parking spaces and more than an acre of public space along the Reserved Channel.
Our question is, will there be a traffic plan put in place or will we just wing it? And we’re hoping they won’t be relying on the #7!
