Auerbach Center at Boston Landing

Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Boston Celtics, NB Development Group, LLC

Project Description

  • Named for the legendary Celtics coach, the 70,000-sf Auerbach Center at Boston Landing dramatically cantilevers toward a major commuter highway atop a mixed-use building that is elegantly massed as a skewed stack of three two-story elements.
  • Lighting, materials, and color considerations purposefully chosen to help simulate game-day experiences; the practice courts feature the team’s signature red oak parquet flooring.
  • Highlights include a sports science lab, training/recovery facilities, a therapeutic floatation tank, and a medical room with bone-imaging capability. Court-embedded “force-and-motion” floor plates collect data on player performance.

Terry Foegler

Former Associate Vice President, Planning and Real Estate Operations at The Ohio State University

Project Description

  • This 887,000-sf mixed-use development has transformed a neglected urban area—and the main entry to the campus—to create a welcoming college-town environment and sense of arrival to the OSU campus.
  • Strategically planned mixed-use programming included 225,000-sf of street-level retail, 12 restaurants, an eight-screen cinema, 180 residences, and the relocated University bookstore.

It was very important for me to try to transport people to a better place and time. I wanted to create a Main Street for a city that does not have one.”

Elkus Manfredi’s vision for the building enabled us to overcome the obstacles and transform it into a stunning and successful business destination, known not only for its grandeur and sense of dignity, but for its warmth, vitality and contemporary functionality. With Elkus Manfredi as a key partner, it’s beyond fulfilling to have realized the great potential of the property and to propel it into the future as a key part of the dynamic renaissance that the city is currently experiencing.”

TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Union Trust was so much more than an historic restoration of this unique example of Flemish Gothic architecture; the sustainability aspect of this project was of equal importance. The fact that we could reposition a building of this era to successfully compete with new construction in today’s market was immensely gratifying.”

TEAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Working in historic buildings always has its challenges, but sometimes you find treasures. Where someone may see a dusty mechanical space, unusable with trusses running through the middle, we see a dynamic fitness center, filled with character showcasing the heritage of the ‘Steel City.’”
