The Project provides 720 beds to the University in a combination of dormitory and suite style accommodations. The building also hosts offices and classrooms. HSH coordinated the preparation of the Project Notification Form (PNF) and the Institutional Master Plan (IMP) Amendment submitted to the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA). The project included the reconstruction of St. Botolph Street adjacent to the project site, the addition of new pedestrian sidewalks, and a new pedestrianized area that serves as an enhanced gateway to the Northeastern campus.
HSH worked on pedestrian, vehicular, and loading/service vehicle access. HSH also prepared a detailed transportation study, a Construction Management Plan (CMP), and the Transportation Access Plan Agreement. HSH led site design on the project that included a stormwater infiltration system designed to meet the City of Boston’s Groundwater Conservation Overlay District requirements. HSH obtained permits and approvals from the Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC), Public Improvement Commission (PIC), and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).
