Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

The B&T article is behind paywall so I can't read it but BLDUP is reporting that Lincoln Property Company will take over the project and hopes to break ground in early 2017.

Summary of Project Changes
As presented in the 2013 EPNF, the Project was a mixed-use development with a
304-unit residential apartment building, a hotel building with 247 guest rooms, a
three-level underground parking garage with 640 striped spaces, public open spaces
connecting the two buildings at the ground and terrace levels, and a mix of
restaurant, retail and office spaces.
As described further below, changes to the Project are limited to: (1) an increase in
the number of hotel rooms (from 247 to 293); (2) a decrease in the number of
underground parking levels (from three to one) and parking spaces as described
herein; (3) certain design changes within the previously approved building
envelopes as described herein; and (4) possible revisions to the affordable housing
program for the Project to ensure the Projectís financial feasibility.

Hotel Room Change.

The number of hotel rooms will be increased by 46 within the
previously approved building envelope to a total of 293 guest rooms. The
Proponent, working with the proposed hotel operator, determined that a modest
increase in the room count is a desirable alteration to the Project. The increase in
room count has been accommodated within the previously approved building
envelope by using smaller guest room dimensions and through the repurposing of
interior spaces.

Parking Change.

The underground garage has been redesigned to reduce the
parking from 640 striped parking spaces on three levels, to a maximum of 420
parking spaces on one level. An initial 197 striped parking spaces will be provided
on the single parking level, with the Proponent having the ability, at its sole
election, to increase the capacity of the garage to a maximum of 420 parking spaces
through the installation of mechanical car-stacking machinery and/or through
managed valet operations upon the Proponentís determination that an increase is
necessary to accommodate the needs of the Project or the CFDA. The Projectís
Traffic Engineer has evaluated the current and proposed parking, and determined
that the reduced parking is sufficient for the Project.
Additional parking for the CFDA is being created through Massportís South Boston
Waterfront Transportation Center.

Design Change.

When the 2013 EPNF was submitted, both buildings were designed
with eleven occupiable floors, with the twelfth floor of each devoted primarily to a
mechanical penthouse, housing the cooling towers, mechanical and electrical
equipment, generators and energy recovery units. At the hotel, this twelfth floor
had a small amenity space for the hotel, labeled as a "Hotel Sky Bar", while the
twelfth floor of the residential was not counted as an occupiable floor. The office
component included approximately 14,400 square feet of office space located
between the hotel and residential uses on the ground level of the Project. Retail
spaces included approximately 17,900 square feet of retail and restaurant located at
the street and terrace levels.
As a result of the modifications to the Project, the interior layout of both buildings
has evolved to make the twelfth floor of both buildings occupiable. At the hotel, the
area devoted to amenity spaces has been increased to add a small fitness room and
pool, with the area devoted to mechanical equipment reduced. At the residential
building, the mechanical penthouse on the twelfth floor has been reduced and
shifted away from Northern Avenue, allowing an amenity space with a pool,
clubroom, and outdoor roof deck overlooking the corner of Congress Street and
Northern Avenue. These modifications do not alter the overall building massing as
previously approved.
Affordable Housing. The Proponent also seeks modifications to the on-site
affordable housing1 to be provided as required in order to insure the Projectís
financial feasibility while in compliance with the Mayorís Inclusionary
Development Policy.

Adjustments to the Project Schedule

The schedule for the Project as presented in the 2013 EPNF was for the completion
of permitting in the third quarter of 2014, with construction following shortly
thereafter. Construction was anticipated to be completed within eighteen to twentyfour
months. However, due to complications in identifying an appropriate hotel
operator and the financial feasibility of the Project as described in the 2013 EPNF,
permitting and development has been delayed.
Given the above, the current schedule for the commencement of construction is
March of 2017, with an estimated completion date of July 2019.

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

^ Roof top bars add so much to the night life of a city, theres going to be one down next to the cruise ship terminal also. That means envoy, watermark, yotel, parcel K, the building by the terminal, and possibly more. This along with the extensive bar selection going in on the harborwalk is going to make this an incredible are for night life. Its only going to improve over time as well as fort point fills in along with the rest of the seaport.

Anyone else blown away by the change in parking? That's incredible. Never thought I'd see the day.

No kidding. I'd love to see an analysis of how that change affects the price of homes in this building.

Equilibria -- it is a confusing - typical Boston matter as there is Boston and Massport with their own systems of numbering or lettering

Here's the map courtesy of the NPC document quoted by Data



Follow the arrow across the project site and you come to the Silver Line Way T stop where the buses get or un-get electrified

That arrow is pointing to the next big developmen opportunity -- air rights over an underground Silver Line Way T Station after or during the crossing under of D street

That future change in the Silver Line is the key to the T in the seaport / Innovation / GE District. It enables complete electrified service with close headway shuttling to/fro South Station [since there is no surface traffic involved]. Ultimately Silver Line Way could become a major underground bus terminal [combining all electric -- south station shuttle, transforming to the airport, and all diesel-- to serve the rest of the district] -- a la Harvard Sq. T bus station

And you can tell they are the old version because of the parking -- changed from three levels to one deep level that will be single layer at first, but could accommodate stackers if needed in the future. (That is the big parking hedge, although even with stacker still only 2/3 the original count.)

and they will never need more than 350 spaces (unless the hotel has a large event space).

The City has been asking for full depth vertical clearance on the 1st level of parking garages so that the space can be converted into a different use when/if parking numbers continue to go down or the space needed to park a vehicle is reduced (doors are not opening/closing).

  • Construction to start by end of year (2017)
  • Construction expected to take about 2 years
  • Project has been in the works for 7+ years

Latest Rendering with Hyatt signage and a couple minor modifications:
