The 17-story building is the first office tower located in Boston’s Seaport Square. Copley Wolff Design Group designed the fifth-floor 15,640-square-foot roof terrace which functions as a contemporary amenity space and features outdoor dining and gathering areas for the building’s occupants. It is planted with a series of 8-inch-deep pre-vegetated green roof trays containing a mix of native and adapted ornamental grasses, perennials, and sedums. Pedestrian space is paved with precast unit pavers on pedestals. The terrace provides stunning protected views of Boston Harbor.
In addition to the roof terrace, Copley Wolff Design Group’s scope of work includes the streetscape and Harborway. The streetscape follows the Seaport Boulevard Master Plan guidelines and contains a permeable precast unit paver strip, large tree pits, and concrete paving.
