A Seaport developer says it will soon file plans to replace a parking lot at 60-66 Cambridge St. in Charlestown with a two-building, 812,000-square-foot complex aimed at the life-sciences companies that developers are betting will need more and more space in the Boston area.
In a letter of intent filed with the BPDA today, the Fallon Co. says it's working with the parking lot's owners, Eddie Owens and Ed Owens Jr. on a proposal that will also include ground-floor retail and open space to, of course, the greater benefit of the Sullivan Square area. The complex is, of course, transit oriented, being near the Sullivan Square T stop.
Recent months have seen numerous proposals that could completely remake the small neighborhood, including life-sciences labs, offices and residences on a 25-acre site along the Mystic River, with some buildings rising 22 stories, life-sciences labs, residences and offices on three parcels totaling 13 acres on the northern and western sides of Sullivan Square, a 25-story residential tower on Mystic Avenue and the addition of 240 residential units to the Bunker Hill Mall. This is in addition to the $1-billion redo of the Bunker Hill development, and ongoing development at and near Hood Park along Rutherford Avenue.
