Key Central SoMa Development Refined Slated for Approval

The refined plans for the newly dubbed “Harrison Gardens” development to rise on the Key Central SoMa Development Site at 725 Harrison Street, between 3rd and 4th, could be approved next week.

As designed by HOK for Boston Properties, the 14-story development would rise up to 185-feet in height in two phases and yield 770,000 square feet of new office space, 29,100 square feet of new Production Distribution and Repair (PDR) space, four “micro-retail” spaces, a 3,000 square foot child care center, off-street parking for 116 cars and 258 bikes and over 16,000 square feet of privately owned public open space (POPOS), including the primarily interior POPOS space to front Fourth Street.

If the project is approved, a 15,000-square-foot, mid-block potion of the site, which could support an 8-story development with over 140 residential units, would be dedicated to the City for the future development of an affordable housing project as well.

And while the entire development is slated to be approved as a single project, only the first phase of development, the larger, oblong-shaped structure on the western portion of the project site, which includes 505,000 square feet of the total office space, is slated to receive a coveted office allocation, with a ground breaking for the second phase of development dependent upon securing a future allocation for another 265,000 square feet of office space.
