Huntington Theatre tower gets approval

WBUR reports the BPDA approved plans by a developer to put up a 32-story residential tower on the old BU Theatre property on Huntington Avenue.

The approval includes creation of new theater space in the tower for the Huntington Theatre Co., which would lease the space for $1 a year. The theater company now needs to raise roughly $70 million to outfit the space.
