The Boulevard at 110 Broad Street
Boston’s first residential building to be constructed on the Greenway, the Boulevard contains 36 residential units, five of which are artist lofts. An existing 19th-century warehouse on the site, designed by early American architect Charles Bulfinch, is a key feature of the project. We fully restored the historic façade of the Bulfinch warehouse, and re-imagined its interior as the new building’s lobby. The tight urban site along the Central Artery required intense coordination of utilities with city agencies and utility companies. An underground, 4-story garage features a state-of-the-art automated guided vehicle (AGV) system, a first in Boston at this scale.
“As the first residential building on Boston’s beloved Greenway, the Boulevard is a unique project that is creating more housing for Boston’s growing workforce, while investing in both the future of the Greenway and designated housing for artists.”
Mayor Marty Walsh, City of Boston
Steel bracing was required during construction to stabilize the facade of the historic Bulfinch warehouse. Excavation for the underground parking vault is underway.
“The entire façade could be built off site, trucked in, and many wall panels could be hung with a mobile crane in a single day. From start to finish, the façade panels were complete in about two months, which is really impressive for a 120’ tall high-rise.”
