Irgens reveals development plans for former Boston Store site at Brookfield Square


(BizTimes | Cara Spoto)

Commercial real estate development firm Irgens disclosed its redevelopment plans for the 16-acre former Boston Store site at Brookfield Square mall.

The firm seems to be sticking closely to a vision for the site that its CEO Mark Irgens first shared last November during BizTimes Media’s Commercial Real Estate and Development Conference last fall.

“That (site) is 16 acres, and we’ll have a mixed-use development on that location, consisting of office, perhaps medical office, and other complementary commercial uses,”  he said, in November.

That focus on office space is clear in conceptual plans for the site that were shared by the firm with the news media this week. Those plans call for razing the former department store and using that land, along with a sizable chunk of its surrounding parking lots to construct between five and six buildings.

Those buildings include a parking structure with attached restaurant and a three-story medical office building that would be constructed roughly where the 200,000-square-foot Boston Store building now sits; a six-story, 165,000-square-foot office building that would be situated to the north of the parking structure and a smaller office building, and a site just to the east of the larger office building that could be the location of a five-story hotel.
