New development proposed: Exchange South End

View of The Exchange South End from Albany Street looking East

Last month The Abbey Group filed formal plans to redevelop the former home of the Boston Flower Exchange in the South End. The 5.6-acre site sandwiched between I-93 and Albany Street will be significantly transformed. Adding four buildings with a combined 1.4 million square feet of mixed-use commercial and life science research space; 42,500 square feet of ground floor retail space; 30,000 square feet of civic space situated around a new park; and approximately 1,145 below-grade parking spaces.

The Abbey Group has proposed a phased approach, building the two smaller buildings along Albany Street first; Building A (6-stories) and Building B (14-stories). Building C (20-stories) and Building D (15-stories) which are closest to I-93 would be built in a second phase. Below is a rendering of what The Exchange South End will look like from I-93.
