Description:

The Project has significantly changed since the PNF filing and now consists of a new, approximately 393,500 sf research and development building, with active ground floor space. Adjacent to the I-93 on-ramp at Lincoln Street and the Greenway, the Project intends to replace an existing building with a new building that will activate and invigorate the urban environment around it.

The Project includes the following key components: The redesign of the open space to the north of the building at the corner of Lincoln Street and the Greenway. This enhanced public realm area will include approximately 10,400 sf of landscaping designed to accommodate a wide range of programming, streetscape improvements, and improved connection to the Greenway. The design will be developed in close coordination with the City and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. Additionally, the Project will partially cover the I-93 tunnel ramp, creating a new 4,700 sf plaza along Beach Street that will complement Chinatown Gate. The creation of approximately 8,500 sf of active ground floor space along Beach Street and Lincoln Street, complementing the existing retail character within the Leather District. Parking capacity for up to 150 vehicles located in up to three levels below grade.

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) has postponed all in-person BPDA-held public meetings regarding Article 80 development projects and planning initiatives. View more information on the BPDA's COVID-19 response.

The BPDA is hosting a virtual Impact Advisory Group (IAG) Meeting, open to the public, for the 125 Lincoln Street project. The purpose of the meeting is to continue the discussion on the Draft Project Impact Report (DPIR) filing for the project as well as appropriate mitigation. The meeting will include a presentation and discussion with the IAG followed by Q&A and comments from the general public.

Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different than that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, 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.
