93 Mass. Ave. Project Files Notice of Project Change

Jul 30, 2010

The 93 Massachusetts Avenue/407 Newbury Street project, which was previously approved by the BRA on June 3, 2008, filed a Notice of Project Change on July 28, 2010. In 2008, the project was to be an approximately 48,862 square foot commercial development that consisted of a rehab of the existing four-story building and an approximate 27,362 square foot, 65 feet new addition along the side and rear of the site.

The development team, Kensington Investment Company, has now modified the project, reducing its size and mass, needing no zoning relief. The height of the new addition has been reduced to 54 feet, the same height as the existing structure. The present uses of the property, which are general retail/restaurant and office uses, will continue in the renovated building.

A public comment period for this new proposed project runs through Friday, August 27, 2010. Comments should be sent to Tai Lim at [email protected].
