2193 Commonwealth Avenue is prominently located at the signalized intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Lake Street, adjacent to the front door of Boston College, the City’s 4th largest academic institution. Currently, the college has an enrollment of 14,700 students and over 1,400 faculty members, providing this prime retail opportunity with a vibrant and eclectic 24/7 populace. This shopping center also constitutes the only retail presence within walking distance of the Boston College campus.

Slated to add 610 dormitory beds, a 200,000 square foot recreation center, 350 parking spaces as well as expanded athletic facilities, this project will dramatically transform the overall dynamic in the immediate vicinity.
