For over 125 years, A. A. Will Corporation has excelled in all phases of heavy and civil construction. As the oldest family operated construction company in the greater Boston area, we understand the importance of providing consistent quality while adapting to changing times and conditions. Whether it be up down construction, roadway construction, or another specialty area, we’re able to provide our clients full service from conceptual design budgets to final completion of a project.
Construction of the luxury condo building on Fan Pier is now complete. 50 Liberty features breathtaking views of Boston Harbor and the Downtown Boston skyline. Residents are situated at the heart of Boston's most innovative neighborhood, the Seaport District, steps to multiple dining and entertainment options. Residential amenities include top luxury finishes, floor-to-ceiling glass window walls, warm wood floors and high ceilings throughout. Building amenities will include a private waterfront club room, a boardroom for meetings, a private gym, 24-hour concierge service and underground garage parking. Luxury condominiums at 50 Liberty are now on sale.
Phase I of the Hub on Causeway continues as construction stays on pace for completion in 2018. The first phase of construction consists of 210,000 total square feet of multi-level retail/restaurant space, including the city of Boston’s largest supermarket, a 60,000 square foot Star Market, and the Northeast’s first ArcLight Cinema, ArcLight Boston, a 60,000 square foot theater with 15 screens.
The Hub on Causeway is progressing nicely and getting taller. Boston Properties recently submitted to the city that they would like to change the height of one of the towers from 420 feet to 495 feet to meet the changing needs of the marketplace.
This transformative mixed use project will be adding to the already changing neighborhood. Rising from a lively podium, office, residential and hotel towers will house premium entertainment venues, specialty retailers, high-concept dining and loft-style office space to result in a work/live/play “city within a city.” A steel-and-glass structure reminiscent of the district’s original railways forms the façade of the eight-story gateway, which connects directly to the North Station transportation hub.
It is also rumored that Verizon's new brand Oath will be an anchor tenant as reported by major news outlets recently.

The 13-story Pier 4 office building will contain 353,000 square feet of office space with 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The following is a photograph of the Pier 4 office building foundation:
50 Liberty’s 14-story steel structural frame has reached nine stories in height. Balconies for future condominiums have been installed along 50 Liberty’s facade. Concrete pouring is underway on 50 Liberty’s first and second stories. A construction elevator is being assembled along 50 Liberty’s frame; the elevator will be used to transport materials and finishes throughout construction. 50 Liberty will feature 120 luxurious waterfront residential condominiums with sweeping views of Boston Harbor and the Boston skyline.

1350 Boylston Street foundation nearly complete, superstructure steel rising
1350 Boylston Street’s concrete foundation is nearly complete, and the 18-story elevator core is finished. Concrete has been poured along the entire base of the 105-car underground parking structure. The horizontal foundation support system, used to reinforce the under-construction foundation, has been dismantled. Steel forms are posted along the sides of the parking structure; concrete will soon be poured into these forms to complete 1350 Boylston Street’s foundation. Additional concrete framing equipment is staged along the base, as well as cast iron pipes that will be used to construct the building’s drainage system.
Superstructure construction at 1350 Boylston Street is off to a strong start; vertical steel girders are installed along nearly the entire parking structure’s base. 1350 Boylston Street will be a 17-story building that will feature 212 rental residential apartments and approximately 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

At the base of the parking structure, the construction team is assembling a PERI Skydeck system that will be used to frame pouring of concrete to construct 1350 Boylston Street's superstructure. A similar system is being used to build Pierce Boston, a 30-story tower also under construction in the Fenway neighborhood.
At the parking structure's base are the walls and yellow beams used to build the Skydeck system
Concrete for 1350 Boylston Street's mat foundation has been poured at the base of the parking structure. Additional foundation concrete is now being poured vertically along the sheet pile wall. With foundation concrete poured and superstructure construction underway, 1350 Boylston Street's horizontial foundation support system will soon be dismantled.

Tower crane installed at 1350 Boylston Street
A tower crane has been installed at 1350 Boylston Street, signaling the impending start of elevator core and superstructure construction. When we arrived at 1350 Boylston Street, tower crane installation had just been completed. The crane used to build the tower crane was parked on site.

A second smaller white crane was also present, presumably to lift the excavators out of the nearly fully excavated parking structure.
At right is the larger white crane used to build the tower crane. At left is the smaller white crane, which has presumably just lifted the yellow excavator beside it out of the parking structure.
