Boston, MA

Located at the tip of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the One Canal Project involves the development of surface and air rights on three parcels in the Bulfinch Triangle area of Boston. These parcels are among the development sites in the Bulfinch Triangle created by construction of the Central Artery/Tunnel Project and submersion of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Green Line. In August 2010, both agencies designated Trinity Financial as the developer for these Parcels: 2A, 2B and 2C.

The removal of the elevated Central Artery and Green Line structures has allowed for new development and pedestrian scaled streets that reconnect the North End to government and entertainment uses at Government Center and the TD Garden, as well as the residential historic mixed uses of the Bulfinch Triangle and residential West End.

Designed to emulate the historic patterning of the historic Bulfinch Triangle, while providing a stunning capstone to the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the One Canal project includes the development of approximately 435,000 square feet of residential and retail space. The lobby entrance on Canal Street includes visual and historic references to the Middlesex Canal and its extension that once flowed through the site. The second and third floors contain state-of-the-art amenities including a fitness center, community room, outdoor plazas, leasing space, and a 147-space parking garage for the residents of the building. The fourth through twelfth floors contain 310 luxury apartment homes, including exceptional penthouse level finishes and designs on the upper two floors. One Canal also provides 20 affordable apartment homes on-site.

One Canal, adjacent to the Avenir building (completed by Trinity Financial in 2009), continues the transformation of the Bulfinch Triangle area into a mixed-use district that complements its surrounding areas and brings vitality to an area once in shadow from the elevated highway and Green Line structures.
