Exterior Rendition


In a recent article by the Boston Herald’s Business reporter Scott Van Voorhis, Sam Zell’s Equity Office Properties seems to be getting closer and closer to starting on their Russia Wharf property. “The company, which has been steadily emptying Russia Wharf’s offices of tenants, is also seeking city permission to erect a large scaffolding for its new project.” says the Herald. 

This project is located next to the brand new InterContinental project which has been extremely successful in pre-selling units even as the market has begun to cool.  The building will be a mixed use building including commercial/retail/residential units.

I think this is fantastic for that neighborhood.  It is going to be a great place especially when the Rose Kennedy Greenway is complete and the street becomes much more pedestrian friendly with it’s parks and new museums and restaurants.

The only people who I can see not looking forward to this are the people who bought units at the InterContinental facing that side since their new beautiful view of the Channel will be at least partially blocked.  But hey, that’s city living!
