600 Harrison under construction

With the roof deck concrete poured, 600 Harrison Ave now rises to 70′ above the intersection with Malden St. in the South End. Construction commenced in January 2015, ┬áreplacing the site of an existing parking lot that formerly housed a lumber yard with direct water access to the South Bay. The above-ground building structure is a stud bearing wall system, supplemented by steel members to accommodate variations in the building’s geometry. Below, two levels of parking sit atop 150 concrete piles, driven up to 120′ below the lowest slab to reach bedrock.

600 Harrison Ave will open at the end of this summer, providing new residential and retail amenities to the neighborhood.
