Pierce Boston about to pierce Boston's sky

Pierce Boston frame construction starts


Pierce Boston as seen from Brookline Avenue

Pierce Boston, named for its architecture that "pierces" the sky, is rising fast! Construction of Pierce Boston’s 30-story frame has begun. A tower crane has been installed; J. Derenzo Companies is at work building the tower crane’s lagging pit to protect the crane and surrounding pipelines. J. Derenzo Companies is also performing excavations for installation of plumbing at Pierce Boston.

Pierce Boston’s elevator core has risen two stories. A Peri Skydeck formwork system has been installed along one end of Pierce Boston’s future frame to pour concrete for the building's second story. S&F Concrete is Pierce Boston's concrete contractor; John Moriarty & Associates is Pierce Boston's general contractor.

At the frame’s opposite end, a wall is under construction for the Peri system’s second half.

The Peri system will soon extend all the way to the wall, and concrete for Pierce Boston's second story will be poured.

The Peri system will frame the concrete pour for Pierce Boston's second story. Concrete will be poured along the top of the system's decking and along support pillars beneath. The following is an animation showing concrete poured along a Peri system:

Once the concrete has settled, the same Peri system will be used to construct all 30 of Pierce Boston’s stories. Concrete has already been poured along some of Pierce Boston's second story support pillars.

We got to climb to the top of the Peri system's decking, where we saw the construction team preparing concrete anchors in anticipation of pouring concrete to construct Pierce Boston’s second story. These anchors will frame third story support pillars.

At the top, we found more Peri system decking panels that will be used to construct the full Peri system decking for Pierce Boston’s second story concrete pour.

The following is a video in which Joel Hagan of S&F Concrete explains the Peri system:

From the top of the Peri system decking, we saw freshly poured concrete along what will be a loading dock for Pierce Boston. Pierce Boston's underground parking structure, partially located beneath the future loading lock, is complete.

The Pierce Boston construction team is hard at work building a game-changing tower that will set a new standard for Boston luxury living.

Pierce Boston frame about to rise

J. Derenzo Companies is performing excavations in preparation for construction of the first story of Pierce Boston’s 30-story frame. Concrete is just about to be poured at the base of Pierce Boston’s future elevator core. A tower crane is now being installed, signaling the impending start of frame construction.

Pierce Boston's underground parking structure is just about complete and will soon be sealed from above. Accordingly, construction of Pierce Boston's sheet pile wall is complete. The parking structure is connected underground to the existing parking structure of neighboring Fenway Triangle.

Caffe Nero and Old Navy coming to Millennium Tower this year

Millennium Partners' proposal submission for the Winthrop Square Garage redevelopment offers a glimpse at two exciting new retailers coming to Millennium Tower this year. Caffe Nero will reportedly open a second Downtown Crossing location at the tower. Old Navy will open a location at Millennium Tower as well. As previously announced, PABU, a Japanese restaurant, will open across two floors at Millennium Tower in fall 2016.

Once these three retailers move in, Millennium Tower's 350,000 square feet of retail will be 100% occupied. In other news, Millennium Tower's 442 residential condominium units are reportedly 95% sold. Condominium sale closings will commence this summer in July.

Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC) at Northeastern University
- Feb 09, 2016

Finishing touches being installed at Northeastern ISEC

Finishing touches are being installed at Northeastern University's new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC).  Glass has been fully installed along the ISEC, and the building's distinctive sunshades are beginning to stretch across the unique curved facade. The sunshades will create a flowing pattern that will have a significant presence along the Boston skyline and the Lower Roxbury streetscape.

The flow of the ISEC's architecture speaks to the collaborative, innovative role the building will play on Northeastern's campus and in science and engineering research and education.  To quote architect Payette, "movement defines the architecture, revealing a new culture of science at Northeastern that once existed in silos." The ISEC will host researchers in a number of science and engineering fields, uniting both disciplines and encouraging collaboration.

The ISEC is scheduled to open in fall 2016. The project is creating 600 construction jobs and is targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status, the most prestigious LEED certification available.
