Nantucket, MA – THe 22 Federal Street project, located in the historic downtown district of Nantucket on the corner of Broad and Federal Streets, is currently under way. Designed by Beacon Architectural Associate, this 5,700sf project is a gut renovation of the original, historic structure with new additions on the west and south of the building. The program is a cooking academy which will promote education and activity in downtown Nantucket. The lower level will include a cafe and scullery, the first floor consists of a demonstration and back-of-house prep kitchen, and the second level will include a demonstration kitchen and multipurpose dining room and classroom. There will also be a courtyard for café seating during warm months.
JK Scanlan is the general contractor on the project. Construction includes all new M/E/P/FP services composed of a transformer, a new elevator, and a new foundation including the removal and replacement of the existing structure onto the newly poured, deeper foundation. The historic nature of the neighborhood also included the need for Historic District Commission reviews.
