The Peebles Corp. last week told the BPDA to get ready for detailed plans for a proposed 432,000-square foot building over the Massachusetts Turnpike and part of the Hynes T station that would include both a luxury hotel and condos - and money to help spur the renovation of the T station.
In a letter of intent, the developer says its building would have two parts - one 12 stories, the other 17 stories - on the so-called Parcel 13, which is kitty corner from Parcel 12, where another developer is planning a two-building complex over the turnpike.
In addition to working with the T to make Hynes handicap accessible and to create a new entrance on Boylston Street, Peebles says it will help pay for the extension of the Prudential tunnel as it creates "a unique architectural 'cornerstone' for the historic Back Bay neighborhood it abuts."
Peebles is proposing a 200-car garage as part of the project, as well as ground-floor retail space.
The company says it has an agreement with MassDOT for use of the air rights over the turnpike.
