Nordblom Company
Boston, Massachusetts

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. This Project involved the core and shell renovation of the existing building and includes a 695,000 square foot (sf) modern hub for creative office, laboratory, and retail uses. The 16.6-acre site includes significant site improvements such as courtyards, open spaces, and a new stormwater management system for the entire site. A new multi-use path was also created around the site, restoring the adjacent Patten’s Cove public park and integrating the site into the surrounding Savin Hill and Columbia Point neighborhoods. The BEAT is close to I-93 and the JFK/UMass Station on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Red Line and Commuter Rail.
