345 Harrison Avenue includes two buildings, one reaching 14-stories tall located on Harrison Avenue, and the other 13-stories along Washington Street. It will include 602 apartments, totaling a generous 535,900 SF of living space. The community will also include 33,500 SF of ground floor retail space and a pedestrian walkway, providing a space for residents to congregate. This project demonstrates its commitment to environmentally-conscious living with a “green” roof covering the parking garage.
345 Harrison Avenue is located in an authentically urban yet ever-evolving South End area. The buildings surrounding the site are generally industrial in nature, lending a truly urban, bohemian artist feel. The neighborhood offers access to numerous open spaces, including Rotch Playground and Rolling Bridge Park.
While many old brick factories still exist, this area of Boston’s South End is seeing a huge amount of transformation. At the time that the project’s Expanded Notification Form was penned, there were three major development projects within two blocks. Two of said projects, Ink Block and Troy Boston, are residential developments with retail space; Ink Block will include a highly-anticipated flagship Whole Foods. The third development, 80 East Berkeley Street, is a proposed 308,000 SF mixed-use office building.
This Boston apartment community is being developed by Nordblom, Inc. and was approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority on February 13, 2014.
