Hotels approved for convention center area

Boston regulators have approved construction of two hotels across from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, the first part of a $2 billion expansion proposed for the South Boston complex.

Construction on the site, situated on a vacant stretch of D Street, will start by the end of the year. The project, which includes a total of 510 hotel rooms, was approved Thursday night by the board of the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
