Southie’s bold redevelopment plans for the Boston Edison power plant

South Boston Edison Power Plant, boston real estateFor those of you who live in Southie, news of Hilco Global and Redgate developers filing to transform 15+ acres of waterfront by the South Boston Edison Power Plant has been long anticipated.

The project site is located at the corner of First and Summer Streets in South Boston, very near East Broadway and Boston’s Innovation and Design Building. Construction of the proposed development would occur over the next 10 to 15 years with the first phase, which could start in 2018, involves the demolition of existing buildings, preservation of turbine halls and construction of new housing along East First Street.

According to recent plans filed with the city, the developers are proposing a 2.1 million-square-foot development that includes seven new buildings (with three of those buildings at least 200 feet high), 1,588 apartments and condos, plus a 150-room hotel, 339,000 square feet of office space, and 68,000 square feet of retail.
