In 1985, Moriarty was founded as a firm that focused on hiring the right people. This created an environment that emphasized dynamic teamwork and supported openness, trust and clear communications.
John Moriarty & Associates was founded in 1985 with a determination to provide the best possible construction management services to our clients. To do this, John Moriarty & Associates combined a proactive and aggressive preconstruction involvement during the design process with a hands-on approach to ensuring the project construction met the quality, schedule and financial objectives established by the team.
The result is a Construction Management firm with established offices in Winchester, Massachusetts performing work in Eastern Massachusetts and Northern New England; Hartford, Connecticut performing work throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island; Alexandria, Virginia with work in the Washington, DC area; and Hollywood, Florida covering all of Southern Florida.
JMA has grown to become one of the most respected construction management firms in the industry, with a track record of delivering a predictable result on a variety of project types; from high-rise office construction in urban settings to complicated laboratory and health care facilities to residential projects of varying standards to finally the suburban office building that needs to be built quickly and effectively.

BLDUP Sneak Peek: Bower
BLDUP recently got an inside look at Bower, the first phase of the Fenway Center with Kelly Saito, Managing Partner at Gerding Edlen. It’s clear, even in its unfinished state, that this is not going to be just another luxury apartment building. While the exterior of the building features modern finishes and sharp angles biophilic design elements throughout the interior not only create an intriguing juxtaposition but will contribute to residents’ wellness.
Bower features two buildings connected by a common podium. The first (the shorter building) offers 100 apartments set to open in May along with a roof terrace complete with fire pit and grills atop a comfortable resident lounge featuring skylights, a sizeable indoor planter, and other natural elements. Units offer Italian cabinetry including cabinet fronted appliances, beautifully tiled baths, ample closet space, and View Smart Windows. Bower is the first residential project in Boston to offer this technology which allows for automatic tinting throughout the day to keep residents comfortable while offering ample natural light. Not only does the View Glass provide a great resident perk, but it will also help the building conserve energy.
The first building at Bower is expected to welcome residents in May.
Residences at Bower feature Italian cabinetry and ample natural light via the View Smart Glass.
The crown jewel of Bower, where we are sure residents will be lining up to relax is the amazing rooftop amenity space on the second/taller building set to open this summer. With 360 views of Boston including a look inside neighboring Fenway Park, the rooftop will offer a sizable swimming pool, cabanas, and lush plantings. Not only will this space look undeniably cool but the development team took an extra step to raise the deck allowing for space for a heat recovery system hidden under the trendy decor. Right below the roof deck, there is another resident lounge complete with an oversized skylight and more lush greenery. Downstairs generously sized residences again feature Italian cabinetry, this time a two-tone finish including upper cabinets in a lovely green. This building also houses space for the management office and resident fitness center rounding out a full suite of tenant amenities.

At Bower’s ground levels one facing David Ortiz Way the other along Beacon Street retail/restaurant space rounds out the project. Saito tells us his team is actively in negotiations for these coveted spaces in a prime location so close to Fenway Park. A staircase and courtyard will offer a connection between Beacon Street & the lower level of the property plus a new pedestrian walkway will also connect Beacon and Bower itself to the Yawkey Commuter Rail Station. Preleasing for Bower is set to kick off sometime within the next 30 days with rents for the 312 luxury apartments expected to range from $2900 to $5800 per month. https://www.bowerboston.com/
