Boston – Greystar’s new residential development in Boston’s Bay Village, 212 Stuart Street, recently celebrated its grand opening and is now available for leasing.
Sasaki collaborated with Howeler + Yoon to provide architecture and landscape architecture services for the high-rise project, which includes one-, two-, and three-bedroom and townhouse style residences; a retail/restaurant space on the first floor; a fitness center; common rooms; a dog grooming station and space; and an outdoor patio on the 19th floor. The 19-story, 150,000sf tower links Back Bay to the Financial District.
Sasaki weaved together the old with the new to link a historic neighborhood with a modern, urban one. The building itself replaces a surface level parking lot and adds new amenities in the neighborhood including new sidewalks and landscaping, and improves walkability with refurbished gas lamps and brick paving improvements.
The development acts as a new neighborhood anchor, with its plaza connecting to a series of small plazas and streetscapes that connect Statler Park, Lincoln Square, and the Boston Common.
