1000 Boylston Street, Boston: BPDA Holds Citizens Advisory Meeting Oct. 24
Project Description: The Proposed Project consists of a single condominium tower containing up to approximately 108 condominium units, rising from a Podium base containing approximately 45,500 square feet of first and second-story retail and restaurant space fronting on Dalton, Boylston and St. Cecilia Streets, a two-story above-grade parking garage containing approximately 175 spaces, and an amenities floor. A greenspace and outdoor amenity area for the condominium unit owners will be located on the roof level of the Podium. The second residential building proposed in the PNF has been eliminated resulting in reduced potential environmental impacts.
BCEC is concerned about the foreseeable growth in the use of natural gas to meet the needs of the new buildings already approved and under review in Boston, which is inconsistent with the City’s climate change targets to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next 10 to 30 years. As the recent resolution passed by the City Council calls for, careful deliberation is required to develop solutions that enable a transition to much lower and ultimately zero reliance on fossil fuels in buildings, and do not lock the City into long lived investments in additional natural gas infrastructure and equipment that will make these targets unattainable. Attend this meeting and/or send comments by November 6 to the BPDA about this project.
