Boston – Duffy Design Group’s increased commercial development work is reflected in its recent expansion and move to 11 Elkins Street in South Boston followed by a newly launched website.

Duffy Design has been commissioned with the design of numerous developer-owned properties and commercial real estate projects in Boston’s most sought after neighborhoods. Under the direction of Dennis Duffy, IIDA LEED AP BD&C, the firm is currently working on residential and commercial high-rise projects designing common areas, amenity spaces, units, and model suites. Additionally, the firm offers expertise in restaurants, retail shops and boutique hotels.

Situated in the center of Boston’s historic Bulfinch Triangle, design development is underway for One Canal Street at North Station rising twelve stories high and accommodating 320 luxury residential apartments with approximately 20,000sf of restaurant and retail space on the ground floor.

Architectural design is by ICON Architecture and Duffy Design is responsible for the interior design of all common and amenity spaces, units, and model suites.

Acadia on the Charles, located at 36 River Street in Waltham and bordering Watertown and Newton, is a 200-unit luxury class ‘A’ apartment community. Designed by Cube 3 Studio and built by Callahan Construction, it will offer a luxury amenity package and Duffy Design Group is designing the common areas, amenity spaces and the model unit.

One North of Boston, Chelsea will consist of a 230-unit apartment complex designed as a single, S-shaped building. Duffy is collaborating with Sheskey Architects, and Gate Residential. This five-story complex, built by Callahan Construction, offers extensive indoor and outdoor amenities including Boston’s first indoor/outdoor dog run and care area. Over the next few months Duffy Design Group will begin the design process for phase 2 of the development.

Gatehouse 75 in Charlestown was recently completed in late summer 2013. Metric Construction, Neshamkin French Architects, Inc. and Duffy Design Group worked together on the 99-unit complex with Duffy designing all of the common areas and amenity spaces as well as the model unit.

In a similar capacity Duffy is working with Elkus Manfredi at Northwest Park in Burlington; Dolben Properties at 100 Memorial Drive in Cambridge and Neponset Landing in Quincy; Berkshire Properties at Union Place Apartments in Franklin and High Point Apartments in Quincy, and ICON Architecture and NEI General Contracting at Mezzo Design Lofts in Charlestown.

Duffy currently serves as the Director of Education for the New England Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). “It’s an exciting time to be working in Boston,” he notes, “the cache of projects underway is a positive indication of the City’s commitment to create spaces that will greatly support Boston’s rich quality of life.”
