Cronin Development Brings BAMO on Board to Design Interiors for the St. Regis Residences, Boston
Cronin Development has hired BAMO of San Francisco to design interiors for The St. Regis Residences, Boston. The team, led by principal Billy Quimby, is developing the design for the kitchens, bathrooms, and finishes and fixtures throughout the individual units, as well as creating the full interior vision for the lobby and amenity spaces.
Located at 150 Seaport Boulevard, the residence-only tower will be BAMO’s first ground-up development in the Boston area. Initial designs of the interior spaces show reflections of Boston’s history, culture and maritime heritage with a sail-inspired carved feature wall, nautical reception desk, and the use of hand-forged bronze, barnacle textures, and a palette colored by the tones at water’s edge.
Well-known for both hospitality and residential designs, BAMO is an ideal partner for The Residences. The firm’s residential experience positions it well for interpreting the St. Regis brand for the Boston luxury condominium market.
”In the spirit of the building’s iconic design, the interiors take inspiration from maritime, complementing the forward-thinking vision of Elkus Manfredi Architects and owner Jon Cronin,” said BAMO Principal, Billy Quimby. “Throughout the residential lobby and amenity spaces, subtle nautical nods and material elements connect the interiors to Boston and the Seaport district, with a level of detail and sophistication for which the St. Regis Brand has come to be known.”
In addition to the maritime influence, BAMO is taking inspiration from a number of local references. The influence of Boston Common’s lush greenery and dappled light reveals itself in the tranquil spa, while materiality in the amenity lounge references the Seaport district during the industrial revolution with detailed stitching, bronze fluting, and decorative blown glass lighting. Drawing on the yachting lifestyle, The St. Regis Residences, Boston inspire an air of East Coast luxury, offering a unique sense of privacy and exclusivity, while locating owners at the heart of Boston’s most dynamic neighborhood. The interiors will reflect all of these qualities, as well as the exquisite living experience that the St. Regis brand delivers.
“BAMO’s creative spirit and exceptional design talent makes them a terrific partner for us at The St. Regis Residences, Boston,” said Cronin Development CEO Jon Cronin. “With their international hospitality experience, we’re confident their work for us will deliver the most beautiful, luxury experience for our residents.”

Guests to the groundbreaking were greeted by a string quartet and the Boston Police Galic Column and Drums bagpipe band. Instead of the ceremonial shoveling of dirt, the team opted for the sabering of champagne!

He commended the late Howard Elkus on his visionary and beautiful design that mimics a billowing sail and will act as a gateway to Boston Harbor. The design is also on the cutting edge of climate resiliency with deployable flood barriers and other allowances for possible rising sea levels. The project will also provide for public waterfront access in an area where it does not currently exist.

150 Seaport waterfront condominium tower breaking ground this Spring
The 22-story 150 Seaport waterfront condominium tower in the Seaport District is expected to break ground this Spring, following a deal to create more on-site public space. Environmental advocacy group Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) had previously sued developer Cronin Holdings on the grounds of limiting public access to the waterfront with the approved tower.In exchange for CLF dropping the lawsuit, allowing construction of the tower to move forward, Cronin will provide $13.1 million towards a new waterfront park and $5.4 million towards waterfront programming for children. Cronin will also build a public dock on the 150 Seaport site and increase the portion to the project footprint dedicated to public use by 60%.The $260 million 150 Seaport will contain 124 luxurious condominium residences with sweeping views, as well as 10,700 square feet of ground and second level retail/restaurant space and three levels of underground parking. The tower will replace the existing Atlantic Beer Garden and Whiskey Priest bars.
150 Seaport waterfront condominium developer paying nearly $2 million for sliver of Seaport sidewalk
Cronin Holdings has reached an agreement with the City of Boston to buy 3,290 square feet of Seaport District sidewalk adjacent to 150 Seaport Boulevard, a site which Cronin will develop into a $260 million, 22-story, 124-unit luxury condominium tower, for $1.95 million. The sale will amount to about $593 per square foot, a far cry from the land’s original appraisal of $55,000. The site was ultimately reappraised based upon its’ value to Cronin’s project, as opposed to comparisons to similar unusable lots across Boston. The 3,290-square-foot site will give Cronin the space needed to construct the 283,700-square-foot tower; Cronin will pay the City for the site over 10 years with interest. Pending State environmental approvals and resolution of a lawsuit filed by the Conservation Law Foundation regarding public access to the waterfront, Cronin plans to break ground on 150 Seaport in Fall 2018.
