Portwalk will be a pedestrian friendly, integrated urban development featuring first class office space, boutique shops, cafes, restaurants, residences and a Residence Inn by Marriott hotel. Portwalk is being built on the site of the former Parade Mall.

Portwalk's first phase is a 5-story, 96,000 s/f mixed-use building. The building's first floor will house the hotel's lobby and common areas and 12,000 s/f of retail space. The hotel will offer 128 urban studios and one-bedroom suites, with a large hearth room, bar and lounge area, breakfast room, indoor pool and fitness room, meeting room, business center and guest laundry area. Pro Con has scheduled a June 2010 completion date for Portwalk's first phase.

I am not sure what the entire project will be and how much space it will take up, but I found this description in an article in the new england realestate journal regarding the begining of construction.

I am sure other sources could be searched easily by interested parties. there is a rendering as well.

I found some info on Phase II as well.
http://info.aia.org/...8d_portwalk.cfm

in the article is says phase I is complete, but looking into it phase I as defined in the article is a seperate project with the same developer. I think that means is that phase I of Phase II is actually starting now, and there will be a phase II of Phase II that I will describe a little now :)

Portwalk’s phase two will offer 400,000 square feet of space above grade and 600,000 square feet overall. The buildings range from three to five stories, adhering to a 60-foot height limit in that portion of the city. Each of the four buildings will have ground-floor retail, totaling 75,000 square feet of 20 shops, cafes, and restaurants, with an extended stay hotel above. Two buildings will have three stories and 170,000 square feet of office space. The four-story extended stay hotel will sit atop shops in one building. Portwalk’s center will be a one-way vehicular and pedestrian “Broadwalk” connecting buildings with brick sidewalks lined with trees and outdoor cafes.

now if you take the extended stay hotel and 24kSF of that retail out, thats the 2nd half of Phase II since the extended stay suites is all thats being built now.

so, two 3 story office buildings totaling 170,000 SF of Office, and ~ 50,000 sf commercial
