This large parcel in South Boston is being developed in four phases. The first phase, Parcel L4, will be home to Amazon.com when complete. To allow for future abutting property development, two sides of the L4 foundation were constructed with a slurry wall acting as the permanent basement foundation. The other two sides were constructed with steel sheeting to allow for future construction. Allowable wall movements were quite restrictive in order to protect other recently constructed abutting buildings. An innovative, cost effective 3 level bracing system was used to keep wall movements within these limits.
