New Balance is a jack of all trades. The athletic footwear brand broke ground Tuesday on the new Boston Landing station, a new stop along the commuter rail in Brighton, Massachusetts. The station, between Boston and Worcester, will serve its future headquarters, a 225,000-square-foot building set to be move-in ready by September.

New Balance bypassed city funding for the project, which could have taken years to be agreed upon. The train station will cost New Balance from $14 million to $16 million, and the company will cover maintenance costs for at least the first 10 years after the station opens, according to The Atlantic. The station is expected to be completed in Fall 2016.

The Boston Landing station will also serve a number of other New Balance investments into the Boston-area, including a nearby ice rink, which will double as the Boston Bruins’ practice facility, an additional office building, apartment complex, retail center, hotel and a track and field complex.
