The site is located at the intersection of Western Avenue and North Harvard Street.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority has approved Samuels & Associates' (developers of the Fenway Triangle project, among many others) proposal for a 325-unit apartment project in the Barry's Corner section of Allston - after the developer agreed to increase the number of parking spots from 180 to 225.
Instead of adding more parking spaces to project, the developer made plans for valets to park cars in the development's parking garage if the original 180 spaces are in use. Improvements to Smith Field, a local park, were also added to the proposal.
In addition to the 325 new rental units, the project will also provide 45,000 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space. 40 on-street parking spots will be available for shopper use, in addition to the underground garage spaces.
The 2.7 acres parcel is owned by Harvard University, and is part of their quest to redevelop the area as a satellite campus. Construction will start this fall.
“The Barry’s Corner project represents an important first step in the redevelopment of North Allston,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said according to a release issued by the developer. “I commend Samuels & Associates and Harvard University for coming together to meet the needs of the community, which will now benefit from shops, activities, and beautiful public space right in their own backyard.” (Quote Source: Plan's for Barry's Corner Released, Harvard Magazine)

|Graphic rendering of The Element in Allston|
The Element in Boston, a new luxury apartment building touting its ‘green’ designation, showcases an ingrained passion for quality and nature. The Element is the first in a series of innovative, environmentally-conscious luxury apartment buildings in Allston, known as the “Green District.”
The demand for Boston’s new LEED-certified construction is reaffirmed by how quickly the building was leased, and by the responses of the residents. Leasing began on the green-certified building almost a year ago; its 100 luxury apartments were preleased in eight weeks.
And it’s no wonder why – with luxury finishes and clean design, a movie theatre, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace, who wouldn’t want to live at the Element? Recycling chutes and environmental lease clauses nudge residents to do their part to reduce harm to the environment.
Developer, the Mount Vernon Company, seeks to transform the portion of Allston, located between Commonwealth Avenue and Brainerd Road, into a forward-thinking green haven.

Construction is underway on the Edge in Boston, the second building in a collection of environmentally-prudent, luxury apartments in Boston’s Allston neighborhood, labeled ‘The Green District.’
The Green District, developed by the Mount Vernon Company, is the largest, privately funded, multi-family community in the history of Boston’s Allston neighborhood. It is conveniently located on the Allston/Brookline border, just a block from the Green Line. Each building offers unique character, while all are constructed to the highest, environmental standards to earn LEED-certification.
Green certification isn’t the only merit of the Edge, however; the beautiful Allston apartments feature all the amenities one could ask for, and more. The modern new construction flaunts eco-friendly, loft-style apartments with 9’ ceilings. The unit mix consists of studios, 1 bedrooms, 1 bedroom + den, and 2 bedrooms. Each apartment offers designer kitchens with silestone countertops and stainless steel appliances. In-unit stackable washers and dryers make laundry less of a chore.
This apartment residence is truly a community, providing ample space for residents to interact. An outdoor patio complete with gas grills, a movie theater, and a putting green provide plenty of opportunity for tenants to become neighbors, and neighbors to become friends. For those looking to embrace the outdoors while exercising, the state-of-the-art fitness center opens out onto a terrace. Both surface and underground garage parking are available.
Leasing has already begun on The Edge, with tenants able to take occupancy August 1st, 2013.

According to the Boston Courant, a proposed Fenway residential tower would add 320 apartments, but no parking spaces. The company developing the parcel, Samuels & Associates, owns Trilogy at 180 Brookline Ave. Trilogy reportedly contains sufficient parking to quell the demand that the new building would bring.
The proposed high rise, known as the "The Point," would be located at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Boylston Street. The 22-story tower’s proposed unit mix consists of studio, one, two, and three bedroom rentals. The ground level would also be home to 33,000 square feet of retail space.
Residents of the neighborhood have expressed concern that more parking spaces would increase the area’s air pollution and traffic congestion. Many were happy to learn that The Point would not include new parking spaces.
However, Fenway is a rapidly changing area and whether residents approve or not, there are new parking spaces being added. Children’s Hospital has plans for a 525-space parking garage near Kenmore Square. The proposed five-building mixed-use Fenway Center development would also include 1,290 new spaces.
The Point isn’t the only thing Samuels & Associates is building in Fenway. The company is also responsible for the 1325 Fenway Triangle project (also know as Boylston West), located at 1325 Boylston Street, between Yawkey Way and Kilmarnock Street. Like the Point, the 700,000 SF Fenway Triangle project goes beyond residential, and will include office, retail, restaurants, and a Target store.

The development momentum in the South End continues to accelerate with the latest new construction project, the residences at 275 Albany Street at last being unanimously approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority Board. The approved project is actually a resubmitted plan for a preexisting project by the very same developer, first submitted in 2010.
Normandy Real Estate Partners, had originally planned to build two hotels, containing an estimated 408 hotel-room sized units, but in August of this year they handed the Boston Redevelopment Authority Board a Notice of Project Change, indicating their new desire to construct only one hotel, and in the place of the other build a 19 story residential tower and full service luxury apartment complex.
Originally priced at $125 million the double hotel project on Albany Street has now transitioned to become a $150 million apartment complex and hotel. The 1.3 acre site is being envisioned as a “mixed-use” development, conceived by architects from Add Inc., will feature not only residential, but commercial and retail space for shops and restaurants to occupy.
The residential tower will be made up of a planned 220 luxury rental units, made up of studios, one beds, and two bed floor plans. The adjacent hotel will now be designed as an eleven story complex with 325 hotel-sized units, with a 3 story parking garage sitting between the hotel and residence structures, offering an estimated 165 garage parking spaces.
The new construction at 275 Albany Street joins the Ink Block at 300 Harrison Avenue, also in the South end and slated for starting construction late this tear or early next. Boston city planners have started to refer to this area as the Harrison-Albany Corridor; which only since recently has enjoyed some high levels of publicity caused by all the new construction projects announced in the areas and adjoining neighborhoods. The landscape of the downtown and South End areas will no doubt look completely different within the next two to three years. Stay tuned!
