Project Description
The Proposed Parcel 12 Project offers an important opportunity to repair a barren section of Boylston Street and Massachusetts Avenue disrupted by the Turnpike, and to knit together distinct Boston neighborhoods: the Back Bay and the Fenway, and the South End and the City of Cambridge by creating a mix of dynamic mixed use development with ground-floor uses that will activate the street, repair the discontinuity in the urban street wall left behind by the Turnpike Extension, and improve the experience for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists, as well as those using the wide array of nearby public transit options. Designed holistically to address nearby public infrastructure needs, the project has the capacity to improve a long overlooked swath of Boston's urban fabric. The Project proposes a mix of uses that will complete the ends of Boylston and Newbury Street by providing a vibrant hub on the Parcel 12 Air Rights parcel that will consist of approximately 325,000 square feet of office uses, 70,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses, and 150,000 square feet of residential or hotel uses, as well as a below-grade parking garage with approximately 150 parking spaces.

An update from the Parcel 12 development team

The Parcel 12 development team has created the following resources to help the community stay informed on construction matters:

  • A 24/7 telephone hotline to reach construction managers for any urgent issues (617.412.4056).
  • An email address for any construction related inquiries (info@buildp12.com).
  • A BuildP12 website will be going live in the next couple of weeks. The website will host a variety of information on construction related matters, and will be updated biweekly with forward looking information on construction activities for residents who wish to stay informed. Community members who wish to receive email updates on construction activities will be able to sign up for updates via the website.
