Brookline, MA – Callahan Construction Managers (Callahan) recently announced the topping off of the Hilton Garden Inn Boston/Brookline. The ceremony took place on August 2.

The project is being developed by Claremont Companies, with CambridgeSeven Associates serving as the architect, Stantec for civil & landscape, Odeh on structural, and WSP as the MEP/FP engineer.

The 11-story Hilton Garden Inn will feature 174 rooms, a restaurant and lounge area, conference space, fitness center, swimming pool, business center, and a 24-hour pavilion pantry. The 111,100sf hotel will also house a ground-floor café with outdoor seating.

Additionally, a 70-space parking garage will be located on the hotel’s second level, providing ease of access for guests.

The property sought to maximize space at the narrow .437-acre lot. A curved corner design draws attention to the building, which sits at the intersection of Brookline Avenue and Route 9. With the topping off now complete, Callahan will begin work on the building’s glass façade.

Located at 700 Brookline Ave., the property is the former site of a Gulf gas station that was demolished in 2016. The building is conveniently located adjacent to the Longwood Medical area and one block to the Riverway T Station.

The Hilton Garden Inn select service hotel is set to open in fall 2020.

“Callahan is thrilled to be working on this high-profile hotel project just outside Boston,” stated Steve Callahan, vice president of business development at Callahan. “The Hilton Garden Inn’s location on the Brookline/Boston line will provide much-needed hospitality services to the Greater Boston area.”

“CambridgeSeven is pleased to be working with Callahan Construction on this special project in Brookline for Claremont Companies,” said Gary Johnson, principal and president of CambridgeSeven. “Callahan has brought a great set of pre-construction and construction skills to the project. These, combined with their determination to make this unique design come to life with precision, timeliness and cost effectiveness, have made for a great partnering of architect and contractor.”
