Waterside Place (Phase II)

Middletown, NY

Designers on the 23-story Waterside Place Phase II project in the Seaport District of Boston were thrown a curve when the Boston Building Department required the owners to skew the wings of the L-shaped building to add more architectural effect to the building. Specifying hollowcore for the building’s flooring helped achieve the change in an economic way.

The 345,000-square-foot project consists of 312 residential rental units ranging in size from studios to three-bedroom apartments, with about 2,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor and a parking structure with 84 parking spaces. The project is targeted to meet LEED certification when it is completed in 2018.
