Not only is 500 Boylston Street on the market, it’s looking to grow as well by 77,300 square feet. This would include up to 3 floors of retail and create a lobby with a gathering place with open seating.
From the Boston Herald:
“The project will improve the pedestrian experience along Boylston Street by filling in an underused courtyard,” said Equity Office Properties in a BRA filing. “(It) will activate the sidewalks and street edge on Boylston Street, and will improve the retail experience.
The new building would house 79,300 square feet of retail and office space, and would replace a recessed courtyard off Boylston Street…Instead of the courtyard, developers say a lobby will serve as a gathering place, with seating and potentially a fireplace.
