The $300 million project - which is being designed by architect Joey Shimoda - would feature a combination of low-rise and high-rise structures on a 3.5-acre lot bounded by Vine Street, DeLongpre, Ivar and Homewood Avenues. A series of four-story buildings would rise on the eastern edge of the property, creating 280,000 square feet of office and retail space.
A 23-story tower would rise at the western edge of the project site, creating as many as 250 apartments. An alternate development program would allow for 100 hotel rooms within the tower, in lieu of 50 apartments.
Construction of Academy Square was previously scheduled to begin in late 2015 and conclude in early 2018.
