Restoration & Repositioning in Fort Point for Tenant Success
April 3 @ 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Please note: Event starts with a presentation and light refreshments at 36 Thompson Place in an exclusive location in a “pre-renovation” state for guests of this event ONLY!
After the presentation, guests will walk across the street to One Kings Lane for additional refreshments and an in-store visit and look at post-renovation.
Feel the buzz surrounding Thomson Place, a collection of brick-and-beam properties that serves as a bridge between Boston’s historic Fort Point neighborhood and the glittering new construction of the Seaport District. Join Nate Turner, AIA, LEED AP from Margulies Perruzzi as he ushers you in to an exclusive new venue on Thomson Place and provides insight as to what it takes to bring a retail activation and streetscape project, steeped in history, to the area.
The historic buildings in the neighborhood (think industrial warehouses that stored merchandise freshly unloaded from the docks for some of Boston’s premier purveyors) provided an opportunity to convert ground-floor office space to street-level retail while restoring the buildings’ architectural luster and creating an active streetscape that reflects the dynamic character of the neighborhood.
Session guests will see how MP’s design preserved the historic warehouse aesthetic, provided accessibility, and created sight lines/ visual connection from the street. Learn how MP and the development team took great care in respecting the historic context of the neighborhood while activating a new retail area that attracted tenants such as Trillium, Trader Joe’s, One Kings Lane and Bar Taco. Session will conclude at One King’s Lane for a private event.
