Take Advantage of Boston’s Hub on Causeway
If you’ve been to a Bruin’s or Celtics game recently or taken the train out of North Station, you may have noticed that the area looks a little bit different than it did before. This is because, after four long years of construction, the Hub on Causeway is officially (almost) finished. With two out of the three scheduled phases complete, the area has truly transformed. And with all of these changes, you may be wondering what’s been added to make Causeway into a true Hub for Bostonians and beyond.
Well, to sum it up, the Hub on Causeway has almost everything that a person could need. From new living spaces, such as the swanky Hub50House, a 440-unit luxury apartment building, to a place to shop for groceries, all of the necessities are covered. Even those of us who are caffeine-dependent would never have to leave, as the grocery store has an adjoining Starbucks stocked and ready to provide for our daily fix. And the amenities don’t end here. The Hub is also now home to:
- Banners Kitchen & Tap, an upscale sports bar with a 40ft television
- Guy Fieri’s Tequila Cocina
- Big Night Live, an intimate concert venue that can hold up to 1500 people
- ArcLight Cinemas, a movie theatre that boasts 15 different screens and locally sourced popcorn flavors
- ProShop Powered by ’47, the official team store of the Boston Celtics and Bruins
- A 145,000 square-foot creative office space, home to Rapid7’s world headquarters
- CitizenM, an onsite hotel
- Hub Hall, a food hall that will be home to 18 different vendors
Whether you’re grabbing a drink at Banners or catching the latest movie at ArcLight, it’s easy to see how a person could get lost for an entire day at the Hub. While these attractions are helping to make the Hub true to its name, the 1.5 million-square-foot development was not only focused on bringing Bostonians to Causeway.
As a part of this joint venture by Boston Properties and Delaware North, North Station and TD Garden received quite the facelift. The 24-year-old arena was expanded 64,000 square feet on floors 3 through 9. The entrance to the Garden and North Station was also expanded and now includes over 10,000 square feet of outdoor space. If you’re worried that when coming to see the new and improved space you won’t be able to find parking, fear not. The expansion also included the addition of over 500 parking spaces to the North Station Garage. And if driving into the city sounds like a nightmare, you can always take the train in and utilize the new Pedestrian Connector Tunnel, which is an underground connection from the commuter rail to the subway at North Station.
With all of these exciting developments, there is much to explore and enjoy at the Hub on Causeway- and it’s not even fully finished! Phase III of construction is slated to be completed in 2021 and will see the addition of a 31-story office building. So, if your business is looking for a change of scenery and a miniature city-within-a-city to call home, keep a lookout for the coming “Commercial-Property Renters Wanted” ads.
Since our home base is just over the bridge in Charlestown, the Peacock Properties team is looking forward to utilizing the Hub on Causeway for all of the exciting attractions and delicious food it has to offer. If you haven’t made the trip to TD Garden for a game or to see what all the fuss is about, we highly suggest you check it out- the Hub on Causeway is unlikely to disappoint.
