MassDOT Selects Turnpike Air Rights Parcel 13 Developer

Our elected officials let us know this week that the MassDOT Board of Directors selected the Peebles Corporation to build over Air Rights Parcel 13, located on the open north east corner of Boylston Street and Mass Ave. Neighborhood Association members worked with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, MassDOT, and the Civic Advisory Committee to review three proposals submitted for the site. A shout out and thank you to Fritz Casselman for serving on the CAC for all four air rights parcels. We were encouraged that the selected proposal respects the legal zoning height and the proposed uses are compatible with the neighborhood. The project will include upgrading the Hynes T Station. The Development and Transportation Committee looks forward to continuing to work throughout the full state and municipal permitting process to realize a project for this site that is a significant contribution to the community.
