About 321 Harrison Avenue
Approved eight-story, 232,500 square foot office building that will be constructed on top of the existing three-story, 300 car garage at 321 Harrison Avenue. The resulting 11-story building will be approximately 150 feet tall and will feature a new glass curtainwall facade. The Roman numerals III II I (3 2 1) will be incorporated into the curtainwall facing the Massachusetts Turnpike, a nod to the building's address. The existing garage will be retained. Approximately 2,500 square feet of retail or gallery space will be added to the existing garage's street level.
The new building will be located on an 83,470 square foot parcel that includes both the existing garage and an existing eleven-story, 235,000 square foot office building at 1000 Washington Street. Approximately 60 parking spaces will be removed from the existing garage to construct the new building at 321 Harrison Avenue. The resulting 240 space garage will serve both the new building and the existing building at 1000 Washington Street.
The existing lobby that connects 1000 Washington Street and the garage will be reconfigured to accommodate the elevator core for the new building, thus connecting both buildings and serving as a shared lobby. The project site will be reconfigured to create new open space, creating a walkable urban experience with widened sidewalks, green space and outdoor seating.
