Starting in 2009, Cranshaw began work on Federal Realty Investment Trust’s Assembly Row, a $1.5 billion, 22-acre mixed-used development. Cranshaw began with an Advanced Utility and Construction Enabling package to facilitate the utility and primary access road infrastructure to support the development.
Cranshaw worked on mitigation requirements for Inflow and Infiltration (I&I) as well as waterfront permitting scopes including a fishing pier and new outfall; environmental remediation to achieve MassDEP Activity and Use Limitations (AUL) status on the entire site; demolition of select buildings; pad preparations for nine of the ten future parcels; construction of a five-acre Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) park adjacent to the Mystic River; construction of the Core and Shell buildings for 4 of the 6 blocks in Phase 1; turnkey construction of the 12-cinema AMC Theater; landlord dark box construction for Legoland Discovery Center and Saks Off Fifth Avenue; and completed the streetscapes in the entire development to-date. The aggregate value of this work exceeded $140 million, $120 million of which was constructed between 2012-2014.
Cranshaw successfully implemented a blended Union and Merit (Open) shop labor strategy to complete some of the individual projects. From a logistical and scheduling standpoint, Cranshaw worked in accord with Federal Realty’s development partners on other blocks, multiple tenant general contractors as well as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA).
