Boston – Cronin Development recently welcomed the tower crane to The St. Regis Residences, Boston (SRRB) at 150 Seaport Boulevard, marking a critical step in the building’s construction program and the start of vertical construction. The general contractor on the project is John Moriarty and Associates.
Throughout the first phase of construction, work was centered on the foundation, which is comprised of 10,500 cubic yards of reinforced concrete with load bearing walls and structural elements mounted on bedrock, more than 150 feet below grade.
The concrete slab for each floor is unique, slightly rotating in order to create the twisting facade. The reinforced concrete structure provides a higher level of protection from interior sound and vibrations. To support construction of the building’s unique cantilever, a diagonal steel beam is placed up to the five-story mark to support a hung column and, when the top floor is poured, the steel beam will be cut away leaving the hung column supported from above within the concrete infrastructure.
SRRB features a design from Elkus Manfredi Architects that mimics the curvilinear shape of a tall ship at sail. The tower’s 114 luxury condominiums will range from one-bedroom condominiums to penthouse homes, each with views of Boston Harbor.
Owners will have access to a swimming pool, spa, exercise room, library, sports simulator, grand lounge, wine vaults, media room and guest suites. The signature restaurant with outdoor terrace will provide in-residence private dining as well as cater to residents, guests and neighbors.
