Mission Hill, Boston
Client Challenge | The Boston Clutchworks Site sat undeveloped for nearly a generation. Several prior developers were unable to secure support from the local community, our approach to the redevelopment was to design a project that was community-oriented. This building was also the first phase in a multi-phase master plan which required it to set the character and quality for new development on Tremont Street in Mission Hill.
Team Approach | The project conformed to the height, density and design guidelines set forth by the community. The resulting building incorporates 66 rental apartments ranging in size, type and affordability. The project includes a 60 car parking garage and 82 bike storage spaces as well as other transportation demand managements plans to encourage residents to take advantage of the orange and green line subway stations. The design includes over 15,000 square feet of outdoor space, a fitness facility, as well as common and private roof decks to take advantage of striking views.
Project Impact | Mission Hill has an eclectic mix of architectural styles, which have inspired the building’s design. The ground floor was planned to accommodated several neighborhood-oriented shops and restaurants, helping to increase street life and add to the vitality of Tremont Street as an eating and shopping destination. The residences have been fully leases since the building opened.
