Project Description

A sculpted modern addition to the Boston skyline, the LEED Gold Certified Kensington town is highly contextual in the massing and materials of its podium, which relate in scale and rhythm to its neighbors, including the abutting Chine Trade Center, a building the firm historically renovated in 1985.

The Kensington, a $172 million, 27-story high rise includes 381 residential rental units, 4,000 square feet of rental space, including a restaurant, and four above-grade parking levels allowing for 107 spaces in mid-town Boston. The Boylston Square area where the project is located will be improved with new retail space and a cafe, creating an active pedestrian connection between Boylston and Washington Streets.
