Tuesday, October 30th, Trinity Stuart LLC, a joint venture that includes principals of the Saunders Hotel Group, proposed a $225 Million project that would bring a 33-story hotel and residential high rise to Boston’s Back Bay. 40 Trinity Place, the proposed project, would be a 400-foot tower featuring 220 hotel rooms, 142 luxury condominiums, 100 parking spaces, two restaurants, and conference facilities. The Architectural Team of Chelsea was hired to design the exterior of the building while Stonehill & Taylor Architects will focus on the interior. The 400-foot tower is planned for the site of the former John Hancock Hotel and Conference Center on Stuart Street. The developers plan to demolish the current eight-story building
The proposed development has support from Mayor Thomas Menino. When asked about the development, Menino said: “[the tower] will be a wonderful addition…it will bring even more visitors from all over the world”. Some local residents have already voiced their concerns over potential shadows, changes in the wind, and traffic. The project will require relief in zoning regulations pertaining to height and density on the proposed site.. The growth of this project is one to monitor in the coming months.
