Project Description:
Anthonyís Famous Pier 4 Restaurant once welcomed celebrities like Liz Taylor and Frank Sinatra. As part of South Bostonís revitalization, a $500 million development project overlooking Boston Harbor is taking its place, featuring a thirteen-story office building, a nine-story residential building, and a three level underground parking garage. Much of the site was submerged until the late 1800ís when the pier was formed with dredged fill and organic soils. Due to the poor soil conditions and immediate proximity to the harbor, a braced slurry wall was chosen as the permanent foundation wall. Due to site access restrictions and delays in obtaining demolition permits for Anthonyís, the slurry wall was constructed in two phases, with a cement bentonite cutoff wall installed across the middle of the site, allowing an early start for mass excavation and bracing for the first phase. Deep load bearing elements (LBEs) were also constructed in lieu of spread footings to support some of the interior columns where soil conditions at subgrade were extremely poor.
