A nod back to historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace

With a name derived from its waterfront location, Dock Square harkens back to 17th century Boston. This six-story residential project is an ultra-luxury condo development designed to sit atop the existing Dock Square Garage, immediately behind historic Quincy Market. It aims to enliven the experience along the Rose Kennedy Greenway, updating the dreary existing building face with an active street front.

Masking the garage facade with an articulated metal screen, our team provided architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture services to integrate the form of the existing garage with the new residential component. Working with a triangular site and base geometry of the garage, the residential tower above was designed as a V-shaped bar reaching down to the ground plane towards Faneuil Hall creating a new plaza with a sculptural water feature at the retail frontage. The residential stories above step back from the Market to the South allowing sunlight onto the amenity deck and a lower massing along Clinton Street. Speaking to Boston’s history, the outer facing elevations show a modern take on a punched window surrounded by a warm metal panel to blend with the areas prominent red brick style. The interior facing elevations of the building transition to an undulating glassy skin that wraps the amenities courtyard at the garage roof deck for a sleek, modern finish.

Upon completion, this project will usher in new life for what was previously an eyesore in Boston’s bustling center.
