Millennium Partners
Boston, Massachusetts

HSH was the transportation planning and traffic engineering consultant for the design, permitting, and construction of this project in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. The project was subject to Boston’s Article 80 Large Project review and the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) review. At 1.2M square feet (sf), this mixed-use project involved the construction of a new 625-foot tower and rehabilitation of the historic Burnham Building, formerly the Filene’s Basement building, to provide retail and office space, residential units, and a parking garage. HSH assisted the Project Team with resolving issues related to parking management, loading and building servicing, pedestrian accommodations, traffic circulation, and maintenance of traffic and pedestrian safety during construction. HSH also developed conceptual designs for roadway, sidewalk, and bicycle accommodation improvements to Franklin Street between Devonshire and Hawley Streets.
