401 Park Repositioning

401 Park Repositioning

Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Samuels & Associates

Project Description

  • Opened in 1928, the 1M-square-foot Sears Roebuck & Co. warehouse and distribution center was a retail powerhouse until Sears abandoned the building in 1988.
  • Now called 401 Park, the historic landmark is once again a neighborhood cornerstone, paying homage to the Fenway’s legacy while serving as a dynamic day/night destination for visitors, workers, and residents.
  • The mixed-use hub links Boston’s Fenway and Longwood Medical neighborhoods by activating common areas on the garage level, ground-floor lobby, and second-floor atria and lobby as well as the exterior realm.
  • Design solutions include creating a grand atrium lobby, stripping interiors to reveal the building’s industrial character, creating a custom railing with Boston-centric names and places, creating a space for the 25,000-sf Time Out Market food hall, and introducing public art inside and out.

The three-level iron staircase leads from the ground-floor lobby up to the second level lobby with two office atria, or down to underground parking.

An extension of the second level lobby overlooks the constant activity in Time Out Market, as does the office space on the right-hand side.
The project's one-acre community park—"The Green"—is a transformed parking lot. A green oasis that welcomes the public, artist Nicole Eisenman's playful outdoor sculpture, "Sketch for a Fountain," anchors a corner, while Time Out Market's outdoor terrace enlivens the building edge.

Team Member Spotlight

Each massing move and its correspondent façade responds to the surrounding exterior site elements. The most visible, the East façade, expresses dynamic, meandering movement that is achieved by the shifting of paired floors. These moves have been carefully studied to avoid any interlocking of the intersecting floors.”
