    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.
    Today the site is well-located within a burgeoning life science cluster and nestled in the heart of the well-established and thriving neighborhood of Allston. The proposed redevelopment includes 2 acres of open space, 550,000 SF of life science and office space, 314 residential apartment units and 20,000 SF of retail. 176 Lincoln aims to stay rooted to the site’s industrial past while transforming this long-vacant parcel into an “innovation village” – a place to support potential biomedical breakthroughs alongside artistic and creative endeavors, all connected by community open spaces that are welcoming to everyone.
