Boston’s next mega-development broke ground Monday in Brighton, where sports apparel giant New Balance started construction of a world headquarters complex with a hotel, stores, and a massive athletic facility.
The $500 million project, to be called Boston Landing, will create a new cluster of buildings at the western edge of the city, where New Balance’s headquarters will be part of a broader sports and health district along the Massachusetts Turnpike.
Monday’s groundbreaking was the latest of several major projects to move forward in recent months, with developers now building thousands of new homes, office buildings, grocery stores, and major hotels in neighborhoods across the city. Just last week, work began on a 17-story office building in the South Boston Innovation District, and another developer started construction of a towering redevelopment of the former Filene’s property in Downtown Crossing.
