The Boston Business Journal posted some numbers to illustrate Boston’s 2014 development:
- $4 billion worth of new construction will have broken ground by Dec. 31, up 16.4 percent from the year before.
- 7.5 million square feet of total space will have been added.
- 12,000 construction jobs were supported this year.
- 3,859 housing units are under construction, on track to meet a target of 53,000 units by 2030.
One of the many contributing areas to the boom is the Boston Innovation District.
