Utile is working with New Urban Partners and Principle Group on a new residential building and community outdoor space at 9 Burney Street in Boston’s Mission Hill neighborhood. The project proposes to utilize the site of an existing parking lot and triple decker parcel for the development of a 25-unit mixed-use residential building. Additionally, a neighborhood-accessible laneway will connect existing Tremont Street establishments to a ground floor restaurant space.
The material selection complements the neighborhood’s mix of brick masonry and wood-framed buildings, drawing on local precedents as inspiration for facade coursing details. The glassy base will help to enhance the public life of the neighborhood’s main street, as well as highlight the restaurant on the ground floor and connections to the laneway.
