Re: Yotel Hotel | SPSQ parcel J | 65 Seaport Blvd | South Boston Waterfront

Are they integrating the T headhouse or building around it?

Re: Yotel Hotel | SPSQ parcel J | 65 Seaport Blvd | South Boston Waterfront

Looks like over and around.

CURRENT SITE CONDITIONS
The site is located at 65 Seaport Boulevard in South Boston, Massachusetts and currently consists of an asphalt-paved parking lot, approximately 12,000 square feet in size. Figure 1 depicts project locus. As shown on Figure 2, the site is bordered by Seaport Boulevard to the north, Farnsworth Street to the west, Thomson Place to the east, and by the buildings at 42-56 Thompson Place and 44-46 Farnsworth Street to the south. The MBTA Courthouse Station headhouse is located directly at the southern corner of the site and an MBTA easement to the headhouse entry occupies the southeast end of the subject

site. The headhouse consists of a one story glass and metal kiosk which serves as an entryway to the MBTA Silver Line Courthouse Station which is present on the north side of the site below Seaport Boulevard. An air duct and vent shaft is located below grade within the easement. Site grades are relatively flat ranging from about El. 15.7 to 16.4 across the site.
PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION
The proposed building will be an 11‐story hotel with ground level at El. 19.7 ft. A one level below grade basement is planned west of the MBTA Courthouse Station entry/headhouse with top of basement slab at El. 7.7 ft. The building is planned to span over the MBTA headhouse above the third floor level. Finished site grades will vary from approximately El. 19 on the north side of the building to approximately El. 16 on the south side of the building

Re: Yotel Hotel | SPSQ parcel J | 65 Seaport Blvd | South Boston Waterfront

Are those purple cladding elements lit or are they static (or both)? If they're lit, this might turn out to be my favorite in the Seaport so far (One Seaport Square is pending but promising).

EDIT: Also, does the Yotel going over the top mean that the T pulls the hideous ads off the headhouse? I sure hope so...

Pile driving of the sheet pilings has begun.
Sign on the door of the Courthouse SL station reads that it will be closed from 10/05/2015 until the Fall of 2016, due to construction.

Looks like the sheet pilling work has been completed and the heavy duty I beam pilling work is in progress.

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, I'm the single guy who looks for the moderately-priced, centrally-located hotels when he travels and would gladly take a tiny Yotel/pod room like this if it means I could save 20% or more than other hotels on the block.

The point is there is definitely a market for this. It's not for everyone, but neither is every Starwood, Hilton, or Midtown Hotel.

I'm really just commenting on the design. The costs would probably be similar to box in the toilet with drywall vs glass and associated hardware.
