Successful Developer Eyes Downtown Crossing

Successful Developer Eyes Downtown Crossing
59 Temple Place, Boston
“We believe in the transformation of Downtown Crossing,” Oxford Capital Group CEO John Rutledge told us in a recent interview. Indeed, Oxford plans to convert 59 Temple Place into a 240-room boutique hotel. The Boston project is still in its early days for this Chicago-based company, which is developing the Langham Chicago Hotel at the former IBM Building and hit a homerun with its ’09 opening of the 225-room Hotel Felix at 127 W Huron in the Windy City. But it will be in good company here: Several major developments are under way in the historic Boston neighborhood, including a 600-foot tall multifamily/retail tower at the former Filene’s site, a luxury condo building, and three more multifamily projects within a few blocks.
