Event Details

The Center for Real Estate and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board presents: Building Boston 2030


Widett Circle: Boston’s Next Frontier for Innovation and Growth

Widett Circle-off the southeast expressway-is on the brink of major redevelopment. The area once slated to become a temporary stadium for the Boston Olympics could become Boston's next frontier for growth. But now, with Mayor Martin J. Walsh's support, developers are determined to transform it into a new section of the city that offers workforce housing and economic opportunities for new and existing industries.

What does that mean for Widett Circle? Will it become the next Kendall Square-a hotbed for technological innovation? A new place for people to live and work like Fenway? Or maybe an upscale shopping and entertainment center like Assembly Row in Somerville?

As planned Widett Circle was to be transformed into the following real estate program: Hotels (720,000 sq.ft.), Residential (3,975,000 sq. ft.), Retail (870,000 sq. ft.), Office (1,550,000 sq. ft.). This was scheduled for a five phase build out.

How many existing businesses are impacted and have to move? Where would they go? Should they be moved to the Marine Industrial Park controlled by Massport.
