Onyx Hotel Impact Advisory Group Meeting

The BPDA is postponing all BPDA-hosted public meetings regarding Article 80 development projects and planning studies until further notice.

While projects will continue to be reviewed internally by BPDA staff, the public review process for both Article 80 development projects and the BPDA's planning studies is on hold until public meetings can be resumed.

As the BPDA’s response to Covid-19 continues to evolve, please check this page or follow us @bostonplans on Twitter for updated guidance.

    Klimpton Onyx Hotel
    155 Portland Street
    Boston, MA 02114

Description:

The Proponent proposes to develop a nine (9) story hotel addition to the existing 112-room Onyx Hotel at 155 Portland Street. The addition will be developed on the 5,478 SF parking lot immediately abutting the hotel. The Project will add approximately 40,725 gross square feet, providing approximately seventy-seven (77) additional hotel rooms, ground floor flexible retail/restaurant space, proposed rooftop amenity space and improved operational space along the Friend Street elevation. No additional parking will be provided at the Site in connection with the Project. The Project will also involve a reconfigured, improved first floor lobby layout within the existing hotel. In total, the expanded hotel will contain approximately 189 guest rooms and will comprise approximately 91,000 square feet of gross floor area.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different than that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BPDA staff to identify the impacts of a project and recommend appropriate community benefits to offset those impacts. IAG meetings prioritize discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members.
