May 12, 2017
The Boston Planning & Development Agency’s (BPDA) board of directors approved 10 new development projects at the monthly board meeting this May. The developments represent $244.7 million dollars in combined investments and are estimated to yield 448 construction jobs and an expected 414 residential units, including 82 affordable units.
In addition to the approval of new development projects, the board also approved a request to authorize public bid advertisements in order to begin construction of Tenant Improvements for the Boston Public Library (BPL) – Chinatown Library Services Interim Location. The library services will be located at the China Trade Building, 2 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts. This initiative was first announced in January of this year by Mayor Martin J. Walsh in his State of the City Speech. BPDA Capital Construction is working closely with BPL staff and BH+A, providing overall design coordination and project management of the build-out project.
