Boston – RISE and City Realty Group announced that the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) recently approved the team’s plans for a boutique hotel located at 330 C Street in South Boston.
The 46,600 GSF hotel will offer 72 hotel rooms as well as a restaurant/bar and rooftop deck, designed to activate an underutilized corner on the edge of South Boston, helping connect the Seaport with the St. Vincent’s section of South Boston and creating a bridge between the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and the residential neighborhoods of Southie.
The development will feature floor to ceiling glass in the lobby and restaurant space, and skyline views in the rooms. The hotel will aim to be a temporary home and meeting place for convention attendees, tourists, local events, and the surrounding community.
“330 C Street will create much needed hospitality options directly in South Boston, creating accessibility and support to the exciting retail and restaurant network in the neighborhood,” said Herby Duverné, co-founder of RISE. “We’d like to thank the community members and local city officials that have provided input throughout this process.”
The mid-rise building, designed by architect Group One Partners, will also create significant public improvements for the surrounding area, including sidewalk reconstruction, and pedestrian amenities to create larger sidewalks surrounded with green landscaping and plantings to create an inviting entrance into the neighborhood.
The construction of this project will involve the creation of over 150 construction jobs. Upon completion, the project will create over 50 permanent hotel jobs, supported by the team’s commitment to Local 26, as well as generate thousands of dollars in additional property tax payments annually to the City of Boston.
