Located in the Central Square neighborhood of East Boston, this 6-story condominium building design was loosely based on the clipper ships that were once built across the street. The variation in the façade looks to assimilate with the deviation of building stock that now exists along Border Street while this also harkens to the differentiation of the numerous sails on the historic ships. This variation also works to break up the large building mass. This project will combine traditional and modern materials to incorporate the area’s past while also making a contemporary statement in the neighborhood.
