Under Construction One Harbor Shore Dr. | Fan Pier Parcel H | 1 Harbor Shore Drive | Seaport

Not sure what Fallon is up to on this parcel, but the level of activity has increased greatly in the last couple of weeks. Earth mover excavation down about 20 feet and now some heavy duty bracing tubes going in.
I could not find any renderings or current documents. Out of an Apr 8, 2011 Fan Pier overview I found it states that this parcel would be a 140 unit premier residential building. It would be 175 feet with 16 floors.

Here's roughly the same area from the most recent site plan:



Seems that the yellow area on the excavation plan is the future roadway. That definitely makes it look like the Parcel H building is kicked off.

Re: One Harbor Shore Dr. | Fan Pier Parcel H | 1 Harbor Shore Drive | Seaport

Where does this lot stand in the approval process? Was something approved in the original Fan Pier approval process or would building-specific approval be required? If Fallon had finalized plans up his sleeve could he start building right away or would it have to run it all by the BRA first?

Re: One Harbor Shore Dr. | Fan Pier Parcel H | 1 Harbor Shore Drive | Seaport

I had no idea that the GP bulding had ground floor retail of any sort. I was under the impression for some reason that it was a dead office building. But retail+expanded ICA space upstairs will be a huge boost for that spot.

More related to this parcel: I kind of hate that they're putting a road between these two parcels, should've been pedestrian only. But I suppose the removal of that fence on Fan Pier Park and the ramp/access to a building (hopefully cafe) will be improvement enough...

Re: One Harbor Shore Dr. | Fan Pier Parcel H | 1 Harbor Shore Drive | Seaport

Possibly this? This parcel is right across the street from 101 Seaport, which you can see is across the street in this rendering, which is looking southeast down Seaport Blvd.

EDIT: I meant that 101 is across the street but slightly NW, which is where parcel H is.

^^ This is a recent rendering of a proposal for the Seaport Sq. Parcel G. It is proposed to be a combination of hotel (triangle between new Northern Ave and old Northern Ave) and residential (between Seaport blvd/ over old Northern Ave/ and caping hotel portion).

Ah, thank you. G is between H and the Pier 4 Apartment building, as evidenced here.



You can actually make out the shape of the super complex in this image.

I'm excited about this one. It's interesting to say the least.

BTW, when are they going to alter the alignment of Northern Ave.?

Probably when Parcel H is done. The new road will run across their staging area.

Yet that's not the final design for GP, so how old is that?

I hope that it has retail but that site plan is old. As you can see, a hotel was contemplated in that location at that time. Now that it is an office building for GP, does anyone know whether the retail will remain?

God knows... CBT has been master planning Fan Pier since the 80s. (See other images on CBT's site I linked to and be glad we didn't get those)

Has to be post-2006 because the ICA is in its current form.
