Proposed 75 Morrissey Boulevard | Dorchester



https://www.dotnews.com/2019/develop...old-ch-56-site

Quote:
A rendering from The Architectural Team shows a conceptual rendering of 23- and 26-story towers, containing around 750 units and with underground parking garages, proposed for the former Channel 56 property at 75 Morrissey Boulevard. Development team Center Court Partners emphasizes that these are “very early days” and nothing has yet been filed with the city. Neighbors got their first look at the potential plans at a Columbia-Savin Hill Civic Association planning committee meeting on Tuesday.
This has been in the Dorchester Reporter before in the fall, and Buildup has that article referenced, but I don't think AB has a thread on this yet. Note that while this same developer owns the next two on the north (Star Market and Beasley Media Group), they can't develop them until the leases run out. I wonder how ironclad that is, or whether those tenants could be enticed to work with the developer in return for better/newer space, so this might just be a way to phase things.

Good news: rental housing. Bad news: The Architectural Team.

Woah, that's bold. I hope it happens, but I'm skeptical.

Wow! Maaann.... imagine if this city actually built all of the things it proposes. It would be incredible. Even just the reasonable things would be amazing.

Here's the Columbia Point Master Plan:

The Hub 25 building should have been a lot taller, so they're trying to make it up with these.

Re: 75 Morrissey Boulevard | Dorchester

Is it me or does this low-effort render look like it's meant to be DOA?

Here:























Looking at this and then considering whats proposed north of here on Dot ave... theres a serious amount of development potential here. Lets hope we get even half of this, that would still be a huge amount. Theres like half of downtown Boston worth of office space proposed between both of these. The best part is these all fall right on the red line, linking them with a 1 seat ride to Kendall/MIT/Harvard/Cambridge.

Re: 75 Morrissey Boulevard | Dorchester

This reminds me, I think the one good Boston2024 idea was to move Exit 14 north and have it come out behind the Globe and meet a newly designed intersection with Bianculli. Wonder if that's possible without changing the Globe footprint.
