The person with knowledge of the deal said Arnold is interested in occupying the top four floors of the building. The lower floors would contain new stores, and Millennium Partners is exploring getting a grocery store to serve residents moving to the area. No retail tenants have been signed.
The project would also result in the renovation of a park that would get a new MBTA station entrance and an amphitheater. It remains unclear when that work would begin.
