The BEAT building, located at 135 Morrissey, was originally constructed by the Boston Globe Company in 1958, with multiple additions being added over the years. The Project involves the core and shell renovation of the existing building and will be a 695,000 square foot (sf) modern hub for creative office, laboratory, and retail uses.
The 16.6-acre site will include significant site improvements that include courtyards and open spaces. There will also be 868 parking spaces and over 200 bicycle storage spaces provided on site. A new multi-use path will also be created around the site, restoring the adjacent Patten’s Cove public park and integrating the site into the surrounding Dorchester community. The BEAT is close to I-93 and the JFK/UMass Station on the MBTA Red Line and Commuter Rail.
