BOSTON — As part of a plan to expand its headquarters and build retail, a hotel, a track and skating rink in a Boston neighborhood not served by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the athletic company New Balance decided to build a commuter rail station itself, The Atlantic reported.

The company is breaking ground on the new Boston Landing station, starting a process that will add another stop on the commuter rail line between Boston and Worcester by the fall of 2016. New Balance is paying to build the station, which will cost between $14 million and $16 million, as well as for maintenance costs for at least the first decade after the station opens.
