Parcel 1B is a vibrant mixed-use complex comprised of 239 apartments, a 220-key Marriot, ground floor retail and structured parking that will provide a vibrant new building in this evolving neighborhood. 

The development will anchor the northern end of the new Rose Kennedy Greenway, while paying homage to Boston’s historic North End and the reinvented North Station area. 

Fronting Beverly Street, a new street connecting Causeway and North Washington Streets, the building will offer an active streetscape with multiple pedestrian entry points and glassy retail storefronts to complement the busy North Station area.  Along the North End’s Medford Street, existing six-story buildings will be renovated with new upper floors rising from a 40-foot setback, thereby retaining the residential quality of the historic neighborhood.

The design was informed by breaking up the mass with a rhythmic play of recessed curtainwalls and varying materials of brick, stone, glass and precast concrete. Newly planted trees will buffer the most active bordering streets. Trellised balconies on the residential levels will offer opportunities for further “greening” of the building.
