Project Description
The Allston Yards redevelopment will create a new neighborhood at the nexus of Allston, Brighton, and the new Boston Landing district. The Proponent intends to redevelop an existing approximately 10.6-acre Project Site with a mixed-use, transit-oriented development (“TOD”) consisting of residential, office, restaurant, fitness and retail uses, including a flagship grocery store, and a new approximately one-acre public open space (“Community Green”) to be activated with programming to enhance use and enjoyment, such as outdoor health and wellness events, public art exhibits, music concerts and holiday festivals. The Proposed Project has been refined significantly since the PNF filing in January 2018 based on feedback received from abutters, elected officials, BPDA staff, the Boston Civic Design Commission (“BCDC”), various state and city agencies, and the Impact Advisory Group (“IAG”). Key issues that were addressed through the redesign included: reduced building density and height (especially at the neighborhood edges to the east and south); explored a greater variety in building height for a more interesting skyline; reduced housing density and re-evaluated office space given the growing demand in the area; increased the size of public open space and landscaped area; and improved connections to the Boston Landing MBTA commuter rail station.
