MBTA offices if I am not mistaken.

This whole area is being moved to where the now old box office is on the west side, which they started renovating last week as a result of them moving to the new temporary box office. Once the mbta moves, they can start to demo the area in question.

Also much less exciting, but they are going to start the process of connecting the new garage with north station garage at the end of this month beginning with knocking down some walls inside the existing garage.

Off topic but that middle pic really shows how bad the mansard roof is on the hilltop securities building...how does that thing not leak or fall down?

I think this was answered way upthread but can't find it, when the podiums are done, are they committed to immediately building the residential high rise?

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

It looks like they are now forming the 8th floor of the steel core for the office portion. However, I noticed on the webcam that at least 1 piece of steel is sticking far above the 8th floor. Is it possible that this means they plan to just continue onward with the office tower? Otherwise, are we really supposed to have a completed base with random steel beams extending out of the top of it?

Noticed the same exact thing....that vertical beam is definitely higher than the full podium level as depicted in the renderings.

Their last public statement indicated they're steadfast on securing a tenant first.....

Q: btw, who would risk building 19 stories at a transit hub in one of the 5 hottest office/lab markets in the country besides the thrifty owners of your Boston Bruins?

A: Everybody

The owners of the Boston Bruins have nothing to do with whether they build the office tower now. That decision is in the hands of Boston Properties which controls development of the site.

I'm guessing interim mechanical/elevator penthouse

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

A related question: Looking at the webcam we see that the residential core reached its current state on September 7. Am I to understand that the podium will have a half-finished core sticking out of the top of it until they decide to move forward with the residential tower, or is the intention to continue with the residential part soon after the podium is complete?

My apologies if this has already been discussed.

EDIT: Just saw my answer in post 2045. Sorry for the noise.

The O’Neal building should move to the new tower so that gets built then redeveloped that entire site

Great shots. I wonder if they were taken on a weekend. Why is that huge parking lot (old Spaulding Rehab site?) so empty? Is there construction going on it that building and it's not open? Any chance of development with that (patient?) parking moved underground?

Thank god it did. Boston just learned how to build for the future within the last couple years. Imagine if this was filled in in the 90s it would have been a big shopping mall with 1 entrance.

-On a side note the last aerial picture posted above is amazing. Im not sure the exact year the central artery was built but with the merano, victor, hub on causeway... the area has not been that densely built and woven together in what 70 years? Incredible.

How long until the ridiculous highway ramps/bridge are taken down?

Those photos also show that there's at least 2, possibly 4 Avalon North Station sized parcels of surface parking to build on north of the station.
