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.
