Demolition is underway to make way for Boston Properties’ 17-story tower, the future home of Leidos Holdings.
The project, called 17Fifty (1750 Presidents Street), is the last office space to be built in the 86-acre urban core of RTC.
Shalom Baranes Associates will design 17Fifty, which includes 8,000 square feet of retail space and a four-floor, below-grade parking garage. It replaces a Block Five building that housed tenants like Fed Ex and Ann Taylor.
Construction is expected to begin this spring, with an estimated opening date of 2020.
The project is across from the Signature, a 508-unit apartment building. Balducci’s Food Lovers Market is expected to open this spring on the first floor.
