BOSTON-Simon Property Group is looking to expand Copley Place here, adding 114,000 sf of retail space and 660,000 sf of residential space. The proposed addition will push the current retail space into the plaza at Stuart and Dartmouth Streets with a 54,000-sf expansion of Neiman Marcus, which currently resides in 115,000 sf in Copley Place. Another 60,000 sf will be added for other shops, restaurants and a public wintergarden.

On top of the retail component, the proposed design calls for the addition of 280 units for residential use in a tower–including the lower retail floors–that will top out at 47 stories. The units are currently in the works to be designed as condominiums with the hope of attaining a Silver LEED certification, with features, among others, that include rainwater storage, high-efficiency lighting and operable windows–which naturally ventilate the building in order to reduce the burden on heating and cooling systems–among others, to be determined.

The mixed-use facility still needs approval from the citizen advisory council and requires permits from the city. The approval process should last the summer and the developer estimates–if the project is approved–by the fall a timeline can be set for the project’s completion.
