WGBH – Half-Billion-Dollar Brighton Development Part Of Changing Cityscape – 10/24/13

Credit New Balance / New Balance will also build a new commuter rail station (along the Boston—Worchester line), called Boston Landing.
New Balance, in Brighton, is building a half-billion-dollar development shaped like a running shoe. It will include a boutique hotel, a sports complex, medical offices, and restaurants.

 

With dozens of construction zones around Boston, we looked at the transformation underway outside WGBH.

Boston is one of America’s oldest cities, but it’s also one of the most dynamic.  If you live, work or play here, you’ve likely passed by a construction site or two.

According to the Boston Redevelopment Authority, there are more than 50 building projects now underway, including one along the Mass Pike right outside our Brighton studios.

What’s now an empty expanse is being billed as Boston’s future Health and Wellness District.  And it’s not the first time this neighborhood has gone through a major transformation.
