Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Gensler (phase 1), Solomon Cordwell Buenz (phase 2), and Stantec (phase 3)
The site of the old Boston Garden is being transformed into a new mixed-use community offering the city a new office building, residential tower, hotel, retail space with a neighborhood grocery store, movie house, music venues, restaurants, and outdoor green space.
Copley Wolff is involved with the landscape planning and design for the streetscape, several roof decks, and an entry plaza. Phase 1, Champion’s Way, was completed in 2018, is the new entry into North Station and TD Garden. Through the use of paving patterns and metal banding, Copley Wolff’s design pays homage to the history of the site by highlighting where the original hockey rink and basketball court once stood.
Phase 2 includes the construction of a residential and hotel tower. The scope includes the design of three outdoor rooftop amenity spaces – a dog-deck for pets on level four; a main residential outdoor amenity space with an open lawn and outdoor kitchen and dining spaces; and an outdoor swimming pool deck, located on the 38th floor with lounge areas and cabanas.
Phase 3 includes the office tower. Copley Wolff is designing the streetscape entrance and an outdoor amenity space on the 8th floor. The space contains a large pergola, planters, specialty lighting, and a sculptural screen wall.
