The 1.3 million-square-foot mixed-use development to be built above the Mass Turnpike seems to be pushing forward. Despite financial setbacks, Columbus Center's developer said the $800 million project is still alive and well."We have no intention of abandoning it," Roger Cassin, managing partner of WinnDevelopment, told Banker & Tradesman in an interview.
The Columbus Center Project will consist of 443 Condominiums, a 162-room hotel, three parks and 39,400 square feet of retail space. The project will stradle the Back Bay, South End and Bay Village neighborhoods of Boston. Other new developments in the area are 285 Columbus Lofts and The Clarendon.
