Construction Continues Despite Pandemic, Inspiring Changes in layout of 7INK
Construction of the city’s first co-living project, 7INK, continues to move forward at Herald and Albany Streets, with several street closures and steel deliveries scheduled for the week of October 26th.
Planned sitework includes pouring of concrete and pipelaying, in addition to framework.
Construction at 7INK is humming despite the pandemic changing the lifestyles of many urban dwellers. Ted Tye, Managing Partner with National Development, believes co-living layouts will become even more popular, in an interview with Boston25 News.
“I think COVID has actually made co-living more of a thing,” said Tye. “We’re able to create a lot of social interaction and community within a building, which has become much more important to people.”
The pandemic hit the project during construction, forcing developers to think creatively. Changes made to 7INK in response to COVID-19 include additional outdoor space, more windows, and spaces to work from home.
