Congress Square

LEED:Gold
Size:530,000

Congress Square, located at 40 Water Street, is a commercial office development featuring both office and 43,000 sf of retail space located in the heart of Downtown Boston. The building’s base was fully restored, a seven-story curtain wall addition was placed atop, and a custom designed fiberglass reinforced plastic soffit was developed to merge the two, creating an amazing adaptive reuse project. The new addition cantilevers 24 feet over the side of the historic base.

Congress Square earned a Special Mention in 2016 by Architizer’s A+ Awards.
