130-Key All-Suite Hotel Transforms Transit-Friendly Urban Location

Woburn, MA (August 25, 2016) – Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction management company and recognized leader in advanced construction process, announced today that it has completed Homewood Suites by Hilton in Brookline, MA on behalf of Owner Claremont Companies. This upscale 130-key, 101,996 SF all- suite hotel sets a new standard for both the Town of Brookline, and the Hilton brand, and provides much-needed hotel accommodations in a prime location.

The project team included architects, Group One Partners, Inc. and mechanical and electrical engineers, R.W. Sullivan Engineering.

Conveniently located at 111 Boylston Street, the upscale all-suite hotel offers guests convenient like-home comforts and quality bundled services in a transit-friendly environment. Additional design features include a complex façade material with transitions from masonry, glass and composite panels, an artful array of earth toned clapboard, gardens, terraces with unique, year-round plantings areas for outdoor relaxation, and a swimming pool. The hotel’s design is a clear upgrade from traditional Hilton standards and represents a new prototype for Homewood Suites.

“Claremont Hotels has successfully created one of the most exciting and innovative Hilton Homewood Suites for the Town of Brookline,” said John Tocci, Chief Enabling Officer at Tocci. “The Town’s high standards and the site’s complexities were all integrated into the clean, modernist architecture and deluxe finishes. We are proud to have delivered such a high quality product.”

While the location is an invaluable asset for the property, the site also presented significant logistical challenges for the project team. The building occupies the entire lot and the hotel’s front face extends to the curb of Boylston Street at its busiest section. This required more extensive removal and remediation to the existing soil than expected. Also, the back of the hotel is positioned less than 15 feet from an MBTA Green line track, restricting major work to the early morning hours of 1AM-5 AM. Adding further complexity, existing historic brick culverts and clay utility lines run beneath the site requiring meticulous coordination to protect the integrity of the structures.

Tocci maintained constant communication with all members of the project team to address these challenges and successfully optimize, coordinate, and deliver on the complex urban structure. This resulted in a finished building that is five-stories high along Boylston Street, yet carefully steps down to respect the neighborhood which lies just beyond the MBTA tracks. With consideration for the surrounding residents, the hotel was designed to minimize the shadow effect and maximize architectural interest. The result is an enduring and beautiful building.

Referring to the more than 20 craftsmen involved, John Tocci continued, “Our team’s determination, project management skills, and industry-leading technology demonstrated the power of commitment and Owner-Builder partnership in overcoming environmental and logistical hurdles.”

Tocci has extensive experience working on hotel properties throughout the Northeast, including the Aloft and Element Hotels in Lexington, MA, Homewood Suites in Worcester, MA, and Embassy Suites Hotel in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
