Copley Mall Expansion

3/21/2008 11:34:00 AM
There seems to be nothing that Bostonians like more than shopping and luxury condos. As my girlfriend likes to say "Don't you know we're in a recession?" Is now really the time to be announcing another mall expansion and more luxury condos?

Simon Property Group announced yesterday that they're going to be undergoing a project to expand the Neiman Marcus store at the Copley Mall and also add three hundred condos. I think it's for all those baby boomers that want to leave the suburbs and live somewhere centrally located - like inside a shopping mall.

The expansion will include a complete renovation of the 115,000-square-foot Neiman Marcus store and an addition of 54,000 square feet. An additional 60,000 square feet of expansion will include new retail shops and restaurant space and a "public winter garden," which will replace the existing Stuart Street plaza.

No additional parking space is to be built.

Good job guys. Cause parking doesn't suck enough in downtown Boston. Click (here) to read the Globe article.

    This isn't in downtown Boston, and it's right across the street from a major subway, commuter rail, and Amtrak station. It's also two blocks from another subway station. I salute the developers for recognizing that parking is not needed in such a location.
