“We are incredibly proud to open the second phase of The Hub On Causeway,” said Charlie Jacobs, CEO of Delaware North’s Boston Holdings. “What we see before us today is exactly the kind of transit-oriented development that we always envisioned for this area. I would like to thank all partners involved for their commitment to this project and I look forward to seeing the third and final phase through to the finish line.”
“Boston Properties is proud to celebrate the opening of The Hub on Causeway, which has solidified this neighborhood as the entertainment and creative district for the City of Boston,” said Bryan Koop, executive vice president for Boston Properties. “The Hub combines the best of Boston’s sports, dining and live music as well as provides jobs and housing at the Northern gateway to the city. We are thankful for the City of Boston’s continued support of our vision to create an urban village at The Hub.”
“North Station and TD Garden are some of the most iconic places in Boston, and today marks an important milestone in completing The Hub on Causeway,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “I’m proud that the City of Boston is making powerful investments in this neighborhood, from Connect Historic Boston, to rebuilding the North Washington Street Bridge, to a new park on the north end of the Greenway. The Hub on Causeway is an anchor for investment and growth, and shows what we can accomplish when we work together.”
