Project Description
On November 15th, 2018, the BPDA Board approved Related Beal, LLC's Kenmore Square Redevelopment Project, which includes the redevelopment of seven parcels known as 533-541 Commonwealth Avenue and 650-660 Beacon Street. Six of the existing buildings will be demolished, and one will be renovated and expanded to construct two new, mixed-use buildings. The approximately 1.09-acre site is bound by the Deerfield Street to the west and Commonwealth Avenue and Beacon Street to the south. As approved in November of 2018, the Kenmore Square Redevelopment Project included approximately 280,500 square feet of newly constructed and renovated office and retail space, and approximately 60 parking spaces across two buildings, the Commonwealth Building and the Beacon Building. On December 17th, 2020, the BPDA Board approved a Notice of Project Change ("NPC") specific to the Beacon Building. As originally approved in November of 2018, the Beacon Building was contemplated to include approximately 125,000 square feet of office space and approximately 20,500 square feet of retail space. With the November 2020 NPC, the Beacon Building will now include a revised program of approximately 127,700 square feet of lab/research and development space and approximately 8,560 square feet of retail space.
