Boston – A grand opening was held recently for The Victor, a 366,000sf, $140 million development located at 110 Beverly Street in Boston that adds 286 unit luxury apartment units to the historic Bulfinch neighborhood. Simpson Housing will oversee leasing for the building, which includes 17,000sf of retail space – 4,000sf of which has already been leased to Tavern in the Square.
Designed by ADD Inc., The Victor rekindles the west end and north end neighborhoods to create a bridge between the TD Bank North Garden and the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
Copley Wolff Design Group designed the surrounding streetscape and a 5,367sf terrace located on the fifth floor. The streetscape materials include dark ironspot pavers, granite planter walls, and trees planted in cast iron grates. The tree locations were dictated by the building footings extending under the sidewalk as well as the CA/T tunnel below the building.
The roof terrace, located on the fifth floor, includes a custom IPE wood and steel trellis, cast concrete seat walls, private residence terraces, a stone dust connector path, and a double row of 5-inch Caliper Red Maple trees to provide shade.
The terrace is illuminated at night with LED uplights and additional lighting concealed within the IPE trellis. Energized by neighboring sports venues, the apartment building features a full scale athletic center and an indoor basketball court.
