Pair Of Towers Proposed As Gateway To TD Garden Shopping District

Delaware North Cos. and Boston Properties would run the proposed project
A Boston development team “wants to build a pair of towers in front of TD Garden that could reach 600 feet in height, creating a gateway for the arena with stores and restaurants, 500 residences, offices, and a 200-room hotel,” according to Casey Ross of the BOSTON GLOBE. The project, by Delaware North Cos. and Boston Properties, would “dramatically reshape the area around the Garden and North Station.” At 1.7 million square feet, it would be “among the largest developments in the city, adding shopping, dining, and living options to an iconic sports property.” The developers on Thursday “submitted an outline to the Boston Redevelopment Authority.” They must undergo a “monthslong review process but indicated they hope to start construction early next year.” Construction is “planned to unfold in phases.” Bruins and Delaware North Principal Charlie Jacobs, who “declined to provide a price tag for the project, said the work would start with the retail base and a new glass concourse into the Garden.” Next would come “the offices, hotel, and residences, situated in separate towers over the retail shops.” The development would “cover the bland, gray facade of the Garden and update the site with fresh architecture and amenities” (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/17).
