Proposed Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

This is in reference to Parcel K across the street from the Pavilion and Yankee Lobster, not to be confused with Seaport Square BLOCK K, which is in another thread. I couldn't find an existing thread for this project (even though I could've SWORN I've seen news of this project posted on the site before).

Anyways, here's the BRA link to the project I'm referring to

http://www.bostonredevelopmentauthor...jects/parcel-k

I've been hearing commercials on the radio that this project is scheduled for construction soon, so just curious if anyone has seen any equipment/vehicles on the site?

Looks much more interesting than the main render we've all seen (directly) above.

Walked by the site this afternoon and it was still being used as a parking lot.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

What exactly are they saying on the radio? What are they calling it?

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

The radio spot seems like its sponsored by the IBEW, they're calling it Parcel K, and they're basically just saying they're about to start scheduled construction. The commercial talks about the project details (# of rooms, restaurants, etc.), number of jobs it will create, stuff like that. I'll try to listen closer next time I hear it.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

Could the IBEW be referring to Block K, but calling it Parcel by mistake?

I like it.

But I am very confused about the angles some seem like a 90 degree angle on the back corner and some seam like a far gentler angle.

I thought this too at first, but the commercial specifically mentions it being on Northern Ave, while Block K is on Seaport BLVD.

As an FYI, the commercial I'm hearing is played on the CBS Local app, which I use to listen to 98.5 the Sport Hubs (I no longer live in the Boston area). I think the commercials played on the app are different from whats played on the actual radio station.

Seaport Blvd ends at D street, where it changes Back to Northern Ave. So it's still correct.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

Block K isn't on Northern Ave., thats what I was trying to say. Block K is at the intersection of Seaport Blvd and Boston Wharf Rd.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

Block K is on seaport, by all the construction/seaport sq. Parcel K, where these two buildings are going, is at northern & trilling.

Edit- so yeah, if the commercials are calling this block K it is a mistake. These buildings are definitely across from the pavilion on northern.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

I hear them on the same app and was confused as well. But pretty sure they say parcel k. I kept think they we're talking about the skanska project. I was like... But that's ready under construction.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

Thanks for the update. Kind of disappointing news though ... this was supposed to start construction in Q4 of last year.

Re: Parcel K Northern Avenue

Nope that design change goes back to last year when this story was posted somewhere on here, probably in one of the seaport threads http://www.bostondwells.com/home/sea...income-housing

At least it will obstruct views of that terrible Radisson or whatever that is

Here is an older rendering that should help. I snagged this back on October 2014. The design is a little different, but the massing and the site plan appear to be largely unchanged.



Edit: Which rendering is the current one? I prefer the one in post 15 to the one in post 2. Apparently both were floating around back in 2014 since I have both in my "archive".

Isn't Parcel K the Watermark, next to the Yotel?
