A Letter of Intent for a 22-story building at 150 Seaport Blvd in the Seaport District has been filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
Cronin Holdings wants to build 110 residential units with ground floor retail space and three levels of underground parking on the site. They will also create a connection of the Harborwalk. It will be 250,000 square feet and have to go through Article 80 Large Project Review.
The new tower would replace two bars, the Atlantic Beer Garden and the Whiskey Priest.
According to the filing, “The project will mend a hole in the urban fabric by replacing an existing one and two-story building with a vibrant, mixed-use development providing an inviting, pedestrian-friendly environment . . .”
Talk about pushing it. Not only is all of the parking going to encourage driving, but having the two bars there means it’s already vibrant and hardly a hole in the urban fabric. The bigger hole is the acres and acres of parking on the other side of Seaport Blvd. It’s in walking distance of South Station and is on the Silver Line and other bus routes.
