The City of Boston required that the seven story brick façade of the original buildings constructed at this site in 1897 be saved and incorporated into this new 33 story mixed use high rise structure along Boston’s historic Fort Point Channel waterfront.  The perimeter slurry wall foundation was installed within inches of the braced façade and actually crossed under the façade return walls at several locations. Structural columns, 107’ in length and weighing up to 55 tons, were shipped and installed in one piece in the drilled shafts, as part of the top down construction system chosen for this project.
