After previously rejecting the podium/entrance design of the Boston Garden project, the Boston Civic Design Commission gave the go ahead for developers Boston Properties and Delaware North to move forward with a $258 million first phase.
The initial structure features the “Champions Row” multi-level podium that will face the street and guide people to North Station and into TD Garden.
The long awaited Star Market supermarket will be below ground level, accessible through escalators. In addition, the podium structure will house a 500-seat sports bar, 1000-seat entertainment venue, movie theater and bowling alley.
At a total estimated cost of nearly $1 billion, the Boston Garden project will eventually add three towers (hotel, residential & office) in future phases.
Below are more developer renderings of Champions Row from the design presentation.
