Channel Center is an office and live/work neighborhood near the Convention Center in the revitalized Fort Point District. The Channel Center introduced renovated industrial space into the luxury market and helped re-define A Street and the South Boston urban landscape. The large parcel (1.5 million sf of building), including 11 industrial buildings on six acres of land and one acre of infill, required a complex approval process.
The new 13-story residential building at 25 Channel Center sits between two 100-year-old brick warehouses. Its modern design and cast-in-place concrete technology echo the district’s industrial typology with large masonry openings and metal and brick detailing. The 76 luxury units are “lofts” with clean lines and contemporary styling, large industrial window sashes, and open planning, with double-height spaces in duplexes. Many units offer extraordinary views of downtown Boston and the harbor, with doors opening onto private balconies.
The building provides basement parking. These 105 spaces were previously unplanned; Bruner/Cott designed access to existing basements with a parking ramp in the new structure. Parking spaces were sold with the condominium units, significantly increasing their sale value.
