Solution

PCA worked with Boston Properties to develop a conceptual design for a new retail and public space addition to a 37-story office building in Downtown Boston The program includes a 13,975 SF core and shell building to house a full service restaurant, 2-3 casual dining restaurants, 2-3 casual dining kiosks, 2 retail spaces, and a winter garden space, open to the public, for seating and events.

After completion of conceptual design, PCA continued to work with the architect of record, Perkins + Will, during schematic design. The new space helps reposition this older office building near Boston’s Post Office Square.
