The ambitious Boston South Station development project is slowly inching towards lofty goals, and new exciting transformations have been announced to the development project which was formally announced in late 2022 but began in 2020. The entire project is set to come to a close by 2025, with a brand-new station. However, advancements are scheduled to be revealed by the end of this year, such as the new Peter Pan bus terminal.
There’s a lot to look forward to with the new South Station. It’s a very exciting development for commuters who walk the run-down station every day and also for first-time visitors to the city. Hopefully, the new project gives tourists a better impression of Boston.
“This transportation center will embody what we want people to feel about our city when they first set foot here and what the ethos of Boston is — a place that is welcoming, connected, and inspiring to all,” Wu said in a Hines press release.
What’s coming to South Station?
The development includes a 51-story skyscraper which will offer mixed use from real-estate to office space and more. The Manhattan Boston 90-minute bullet train would also run out of South Station, but that will not be done by the end of the project.
- 700,000 square-feet of office space
- 166 condos
- 895 new parking spaces
- Newly expanded bus terminal (set to be done by end of 2023)
The completion of the project will bring to the city its fifth tallest building (reaching 690 feet), nearly 2 million square-feet of mixed-use space, and almost 900 new parking spaces. The residential space will be owned by Ritz-Carlton Residences, offering tenants a luxurious stay and panoramic views of the city and Boston Harbor.
