A 39-foot steel beam was signed and raised Tuesday morning at the entrance to ‘The Hub on Causeway’, marking the symbolic completion of phase one of this three-phase development at North Station and the TD Garden.
Several hundred project partners, stakeholders, construction crew workers, and community members signed their names on this final beam before it was hauled 100 feet up to the top of the west podium. This marks a major milestone for the 1.5-million-square-foot transit-oriented project.
Phase I includes the grand, glass-topped atrium entry of TD Garden, and a new entrance and underground connector tunnel for North Station and the MBTA Commuter Rail, all set to open in October 2018.
It also comprises 175,000 square feet of loft office space and several retail and entertainment venues. These portions of Phase I are expected to open late 2019 and will include a Star Market, ArcLight Cinemas movie theater, and a live entertainment venue.
Watch this time lapse to see the progress made since groundbreaking on January 27, 2016:
Once completed, ‘The Hub on Causeway’ will have transformed North Station into a mixed-use retail, office, hotel, and residential development with an expanded TD Garden. See photo renderings below.
