Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Designed by ShoP Architects, the Pier 4 Residences has 16,800 square feet of ground-floor retail/ restaurant space and two levels of underground parking.
Tishman Speyer developed this curved nine-story, 118-foot building and nearly one-acre public park for the South Boston waterfront.
A pivotal way-station on the city’s extensive Harborwalk network and a lasting contribution to the ongoing revitalization of the Fort Point Channel neighborhood, Pier 4 comprises 110 units above spaces for retail and dining that serve a new linear waterfront park.
The bar-shaped building takes inspiration from a traditional typology found on many of Boston’s old piers.
SHoP Architect’s design features “sea steps” down to the water’s edge along a section of the Harbor Walk.
The walkway progresses to a 40,000-square-foot waterfront park with a great lawn bordered by granite, a performance stage, and trees and seating on the south side for windscreen and shade.
