EAST BOSTON, MA
Boston East is a new residential community developed by Trinity Financial. The project occupies a 7.4 acre parcel of land, consists of a 6-story residential building of approximately 240,000 sf with one level of partially below-grade 115-car garage, and includes 200 studio to three-bedroom units with 6 units of ground floor artist live/work/sell space, a community art gallery and historic interpretive exhibits. A fifth floor amenity space with outdoor patio area overlooks Boston’s Inner Harbor with panoramic views of Charlestown, Boston’s Historic North End and the Financial District. Site work includes a reconstructed sea wall, a twelve-foot wide Harborwalk along the full length of the project shoreline, a kayak launch, and an elevated terrace.
The project also includes the construction of a new 60″ storm drainage outfall pipe with tide gate and water quality structure, which discharges into the Boston Harbor. Building construction entailed ground improvements for structural support, two levels of structural steel podium, five floors of wood framed panelized construction. The façade is a combination of masonry, fiber cement and metal panel. The project opened in March of 2018.
