In the commercial tower, the companies completed the core and shell as well as the tenant fitouts for the building. A full security system was also installed throughout both buildings. Additionally, JM and NSI installed a full building automation system as well as the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning control system and lab controls.

The architect is Elkus Manfredi Architects, and general contractor is John Moriarty & Associates. It is managed by Samuels & Associates Management, LLC.

Developed by Samuels & Associates and Weiner Ventures, Van Ness is LEED Gold certified. The development is composed of two buildings: a 13-story building that contains 172 residential units, and an 11-story building that contains 237,000sf of office space. The ground floor contains 200,000sf of retail space. Underneath the development is a 500-car parking garage. Tenants of the development include Optum, Chloe, Sephora, Whoop, BloDry Boutique, and Decibel, the first life sciences lab tenant in the Fenway area.

Amenities at Van Ness include a fitness center, television lounge, gaming lounge, rooftop lounge with grilling areas, green terrace, and a conference room. Residents are just a walk away from a number of independent retailers, including Target, and numerous areas of green space including Back Bay Fens and Victory Garden. Its prime location also makes it easy to use public transportation, situated close to the Green Line as well as the commuter rail.


JM Electrical’s foreman on the job oversaw a team of four electricians over the course of the project to ensure it was completed on time and on budget

“We are happy to have contributed to another building that is setting high sustainability standards in the city,” said Niall Black, Project Manager at JM Electrical. “Having state-of-the-art, energy efficient HVAC system controls as well as an advanced security system are important for keeping residents and shoppers in a safe and comfortable environment.”
