The Innovation and Design Building

Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Jamestown LP

Project Description

  • The master plan for this repositioned 1.4-million-sf former U.S. Army warehouse in Boston’s Seaport creates a dynamic district for innovators and designers; Elkus Manfredi also designed three tenant fit-outs in the repositioned building — Elkus Manfredi Architects’ office, Jamestown and Boston Art.
  • The transformed eight-story industrial building features cohesive signage and branding, and an animated pop-up market environment along its 1,400-foot-long pedestrian loading dock — now a promenade.
  • The first floor houses retail tenants in sync with the innovator/maker theme; upper floors are home to design, technology, and manufacturing.
