TS11 - Some Assembly Required

Saturday, November 11 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Abstract Text:

Learn how this once abandoned region of decaying industrial buildings and brownfields and home to a former Ford assembly plant, became Assembly Row, a vibrant mixed-use development and home to 5,000 office workers and 1000 residents, the site of thousands of visitors a year, the home of the first new T station added to the Orange Line in over 25 years, and most importantly, how it was designed to sustain and support its community holistically. Tour participants will next assemble outside of one of Partner’s Healthcare’s newest buildings, the Partners Healthcare Administrative Campus, a 900,000sf, 14 story medical office building. The Project features approximately 88% medical offices and 12% retail spaces, a 10 acre neighborhood park with 35% open space and other site amenities. The building also includes raised flooring (UFAD,) all MEPFP systems in penthouse for to address climate change resilience, smart elevators, 30,000 SF of green roofs, balconies and a precast garage with 2,024 parking spaces.
