Universal Hub is reporting that developers have filed plans with the Boston Planning and Development Agency to build a six-story, 74-room boutique hotel at 330 C Street. The $26.8 million dollar project would be replacing a run-down old one-story repair garage and the proposed hotel will not have parking.
No parking, you say? Yes, the developer feels that it’s close enough for a quick Uber from Logan Airport and South Station and an “easy” walk pulling a suitcase from Broadway Station.
This project will need approval from the BPDA, the Zoning Board of Appeal and would need to get a waiver for the 90 would-be parking spaces that would normally be required of a project this size.

While the area does need improvements and this project would definitely spur that and make the area nicer, but NO parking built into the project? parking here is so bad, and enforcement is stretched thin. It is laughable that they think no one is going to drive to Boston to stay there, or that their guests will not rent a car, or that their guests will not have visitors who would drive here. And of course, the restaurant(s) would never have people coming by car. Sorry but a No vote from me until Parking is seriously considered. I just submitted this to the BPDA and everyone else living here should too
No parking, No hotel!
