Suffolk Construction Awarded Boston Wharf Tower Project

Suffolk Construction, an AGC of Massachusetts and AGC of Metropolitan D.C. member, has been selected to manage construction on the 20-story, 258,000 square-foot Boston Wharf Tower project. Located at 319 A Street Rear in Boston’s Innovation District, the $77 million project will feature 202 rental units and a four-level, above-grade parking garage with 96 spaces.

Suffolk recently joined state and local dignitaries, developer Gerding Edlen, and architecture firm ADD Inc to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Boston Wharf Tower project. Event attendees had the opportunity to preview an "interpretation" of a residential unit from the Boston Wharf Tower, fabricated on site by the Suffolk project team and artistically designed by a local artist. The one-day interactive display highlighted the creativity of the Fort Point Channel region and demonstrated the district’s support for new residential development in this emerging area.

Designed to maximize space and minimize energy usage, the project will be built to achieve a minimum of LEED Silver certification. The Boston Wharf Tower project is Gerding Edlen’s first development in the Boston area. Construction is scheduled for completion in January 2014.
