Formerly an industrial area that served as one of the region’s largest stockyards, this ongoing construction effort, collectively known as Boston Landing, is transforming a neighborhood just outside of Boston into a vibrant destination for like-minded companies focused on work/life balance. The $750 million project spans 15 acres. It contains numerous construction components that include a hotel, retail/restaurant space, office space, lab space, a sports complex, a commuter rail station, and a parking garage expansion. Completed and in-progress projects PMA has supported include the New Balance World Headquarters, Boston Landing MBTA Commuter Rail Station, Kohi Coffee, Flatbread Pizza Company, Cambridge Naturals (health and wellness Store), 40 Guest Street/Auerbach Center (Boston Celtics practice facility), NB Fitness Club, the 80 Guest Street Lab conversion, and The Track at New Balance.
Initially engaged to only provide scheduling support services, PMA’s contract was extended to provide comprehensive owner’s project management services including schedule and budget management, procurement oversight, site management, contract management, and monthly reporting. PMA works closely with the owner, NB Development Group LLC, to deliver all projects on time and on budget.
The $23 million Boston Landing MBTA Commuter Rail Station joins 16 other stations on the Framingham-Worcester Commuter Rail Line and sits across from the New Balance World Headquarters and Bruins Warrior Ice Arena Practice Facility on the New Balance Campus. This station includes a single canopied platform centered between eastbound and westbound tracks and includes accessible elevators and ramps. This is the first commuter rail the Allston-Brighton neighborhood has had access to in more than half a century. The project received a 2019 BSCES Sustainability Award. It is the first transit project in New England to achieve Envision verification, recognized in the Quality of Life Category. The Envision system rates infrastructure projects across a full range of environmental, social, and economic impacts.
