Viola Back Bay
400,000 SF | Landmark Mixed-Use | Public-Private Partnership with MassDOT
In January 2015, The Peebles Corporation was selected to develop a critical intersection in Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood. Dubbed The Viola Back Bay in homage to the adjacent Berklee College of Music, the proposed 400,000-square-foot landmark development will be the company’s first in Boston. The transformative project aims to link the Back Bay and Fenway neighborhoods and reinvigorate the Newbery Street corridor with its distinctive design and diverse mix of uses, respectively. The project will feature approximately 125 condominium units, a boutique lifestyle hotel consisting of more than 175 rooms, 20,000 square feet of retail, and a dedicated community space. In addition, and as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering innovative results for the communities in which it builds, The Viola Back Bay’s transit-oriented design will include a new, universally accessible, state-of-the-art Hynes MBTA Station.
