Boston – Lee Kennedy Co., Inc. (LKCo.) recently began construction for the 34,270sf renovation, as well as the 19,500sf addition, at 50, 60, and 62 Staniford Street in Boston’s West End neighborhood. Construction is expected to be complete in February 2019.
The 50 Staniford Street projects represent a continuation of LKCo.’s relationship with the architect, Margulies Perruzzi Architects, and owner’s project manager, CBRE/New England.
The project looks to revitalize the building with the repositioning of three entries, a new plaza, and a renovation of the building’s lobby. It will reposition the existing lobby along William O’Connell Way to better suit the patient experience and develop new retail and medical space along Staniford Street.
A dedicated pickup/drop-off will be created at the rear plaza to accommodate the high volume of patients coming through the building. Project challenges include working within strict timelines so as not to impact the existing residential towers, eye surgery facility, and neighbors.
“This is a challenging project that has a widespread effect on the surrounding community, and LKCo. is working to minimize the impact. This is one of many projects that will bring a new look and energy to all those who visit, live, and work in the area,” said Scott Giles, vice president of interiors.
