176 Lincoln Street is a proposed 810,000 SF mixed-use redevelopment on more than 5.2 acres in Boston’s Allston/Brighton neighborhood. Located on what was formerly a Carnegie Steel industrial operation, near the Boston Landing commuter rail station and the Massachusetts Turnpike. Since its historic industrial past, the site was envisioned to be an “Internet City”, a center focused on telecommunications but was abandoned after the early 2000’s dot-com bubble burst and left the partially-built structure that can be seen today. For the past 30 years, the site has essentially sat vacant as much of the surrounding neighborhood has grown and evolved around it.
