From the constantly evolving Seaport District to new hotels in the city’s skyline, it seems like there are major developments popping up everywhere we look.

We’re keeping our eyes on newly announced projects, like a $50 million recreation facility for the Boys and Girls Club in Dorchester, and looking ahead to some of the most groundbreaking developments to come later this year.

Coolidge Corner Theatre Expansion

290 Harvard St., Brookline | August 2022

The historic Brookline theatre is getting a massive makeover this year — a $12.5 million one, to be exact. The Campaign for the Coolidge is adding 14,000 sqft, which will include two new theatres and a community engagement center. The design by architecture firm Höweler + Yoon will compliment the space’s art deco feel.

MBTA Green Line Extension

Somerville and Medford | Spring 2022

One of the most anticipated developments in the city, the MBTA Green Line extension should be completed this spring. This update will extend the northern end of the Green Line from Lechmere to Union Square in Somerville and College Avenue in Medford, supporting an increased ridership of more than 50,000 trips per day.

Raffles Hotel & Residences

40 Trinity Pl. | Fall 2022

Luxury international hotel chain Raffles is opening up its first North American venture right here in Back Bay. The mixed-use property will offer 157 hotel rooms + 146 residences within its 35 stories. You’ll certainly notice this addition to the Boston skyline.

Of course, we have to give an honorable mention to The Superette, the grand piazza making its way to the Seaport this spring or summer.

(Psst… This list isn’t meant to be comprehensive. If there is a construction project you’d like to share with us, send it our way. We love hearing about new developments + businesses.)
