Allston, MA – LBC Boston, a diverse group of companies developing complex projects, is in the process of securing permits to begin work on a new mixed-use development project in Allston under the city of Boston’s Compact Living Pilot program.
Located at 20 Linden Street and named Allston Green, the $140 million, 250,000sf complex features three buildings on approximately two acres, 350 housing units, and 34,000sf of open space.
Working with architect Prellwitz Chilinksi Associates, Inc./PCA of Cambridge, the design strategically places three buildings and two green spaces on the site. The project team also includes MEP engineer, R.W. Sullivan.
Variations in building planes and setbacks, a rich palette of exterior materials, and the playful use of color frame active, public ground floor uses that engage residents and neighbors alike. Proposed ground floor uses include a gallery/retail and artist coworking space, as well as the tower’s lobby and amenities.
Over 20,000sf of open space will be accessible to the public and will be used for community gatherings such as farmers’ markets, outdoor movie nights, and exhibits. LBC Boston plans to invite local artists to paint murals and to create unique sitting cubes to be installed in the public parks.
The project is slated to be completed in the spring of 2024.
