The Boston metropolitan area is in the midst of one of the largest construction booms we’ve seen in years. There’s no sign of a slow down with upcoming investments in expansive infrastructure projects and large-scale building and construction projects. As the Boston Planning and Development Agency continues to approve large building projects the building boom will keep providing more work opportunities for DC35 members well into the future.

Harvard University Science and Engineering Complex

Upcoming $1 billion, 535,000-square-foot academic building that will serve as the new home for Harvard University’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The six-story building will serve as a new hub of learning for over 1,800 science and engineering students, researchers, and faculty. It will serve as a new iconic gateway to Harvard’s growing Allston campus, featuring laboratories, classrooms, and related teaching and research space. The building will also contain a new 5,000-square-foot Maker Space, featuring high-end manufacturing and assembly workstations and allowing students to test ideas and incubate enterprises.

150 Seaport Blvd

After a long journey, the controversial 22-story condo tower in Boston’s Seaport District was recently approved by the Department of Environmental Protection. Despite receiving approval from the Boston Planning & Development Agency in December 2016, the tower faced a legal challenge by the Conservation Law Foundation earlier this year, which held up construction. Developer Jon Cronin agreed to pay the City of Boston $1.95 million for the 3,000 square feet of the City’s sidewalks outside Whiskey Priest and Atlantic Beer Garden in order to create enough space for the luxury condo tower.
