About the Project

Three site plan amendments have been submitted for the proposed redevelopment of the Boston Common shopping mall. Collectively, these applications are referred to as Ballston Quarter Redevelopment.

The first site plan amendment, filed as a final filing in June 2015 includes:

  • façade and interior renovations
  • a new plaza and mews
  • streetscape and garage improvements

The second site plan amendment, filed as a final filing in June 2015, includes:

  • the development of a new mixed use building with residential and retail uses on the site of the existing Macy's Home Store
  • the building will have 22 stories, 405 units and more than 51,000 square feet of ground floor retail

The third site plan amendment, filed as a final filing in June 2015, includes:

  • renovations to the office building above the Macy's department store

The County Board hearing dates for these applications have not been set, but are anticipated to be in November 2015.  This page will be updated with additional details about the proposal and the public review process as they become available.
