Boston Redevelopment Authority approves Church development plans

On August 16, an important milestone in the Christian Science Plaza Revitalization Project of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, was reached. The Boston Redevelopment Authority Board unanimously approved the rezoning of the Plaza to allow for the construction of three new buildings and a small pavilion—in response to the Church’s filing in May for establishment of a Planned Development Area Master Plan for the Plaza.

There will be a Boston Zoning Commission meeting to review and vote on the Church’s rezoning in September. 

The locations of the proposed new buildings are on selected edges of the Plaza. Two are on Belvidere and Dalton Streets across from the Sheraton and Hilton Hotels and one is on the Huntington Avenue side of the Sunday School building. The small pavilion would be located at the corner of Huntington Avenue and Belvidere Street, near the Children’s Fountain.
