1240 Soldiers Field Road is located in the heart of Brighton, Massachusetts. The ±32,635 SF building is currently home to The Skating Club of Boston; however, the 1.97-acre urban transit-oriented development site can support a variety of uses.
Given the site’s proximity to Harvard University, Cambridge and the City of Boston, we expect a great deal of interest. Allston-Brighton is one of the hottest markets in Greater Boston and this site is special. – Mark Reardon, Executive Vice President/Partner at CBRE/NE
1240 Soldiers Field Road is in the City of Boston’s Allston-Brighton Neighborhood District (the “A-B District”) and the Western Avenue/Soldiers Field Community Commercial 1 (“CC-1”) subdistrict. This subdistrict designation is aimed at diversifying the commercial environment and therefore allows for a wide range of uses including office, retail, medical and residential, as well as hospitality. This location provides unparalleled access to dynamic labor pools, unmatched amenities, and the rare opportunity to develop one of Boston’s remaining sites in an extraordinarily active and hot market.
The site’s neighborhood includes a plethora of new offices, research facilities and residential developments. As pictures below, recent developments include the Charlesview Residences, The Continuum, Harvard Innovation Center and Telford 180.
1240 Soldiers Field Road is directly on the Charles River and is minutes from downtown Boston, Logan Airport, Cambridge, the Mass Pike, and Interstates 95 and 93. The site is also located in proximity to Greater Boston’s most prestigious colleges and universities including Harvard University, Boston College, Boston University, MIT and Northeastern University. Additionally, the property is in walking distance to numerous restaurants, hotels, fitness centers, retail and coffee shops. Within a five-mile radius, the area has a growing employee base of over 873,000 employees and 45,840 businesses.
