#BostonRedevelopment #BostonRealEstateBoston's Back Bay train station, bus plaza and 2,000 space garage sits on a huge city block that is being eyed for a remake.A new complex proposed by Boston Properties Inc. would transform the lacklustre Back Bay MBTA station into a modern glass retail hub, according to an article in the Boston Globe.The redevelopment would include improvements to the MBTA station's concourse, bathrooms, waiting areas, and lighting. It has not yet been decided whether the towers, which are slated to be residences, will be condos or apartments.The firm ofPelli Clarke Pelli Architectshas created a designthat includes a 26 story office tower with retail at the base.Boston Properties Inc. sees the project as a reconnection of Back Bay and the South End in an area in which they are divided by a highway:
It should be seamless, to really tie these two communities together, said Bryan Koop, Boston Properties executive vice president.Weve seen what happened when we linked the South End to the Back Bay through the Prudential Center. In some ways theres a more powerful link at Back Bay Station.
